Mechanical Techno in Luxemburg
Dubbed «one of the preeminent and most singular voices in UK electronic music» Actress produces his tracks by melding his obsession with textures, his devotion to Detroit techno and his unequaled beat-matching skills. Actress has also released some of the most widely talked about artists of the emerging bass generation (Disrupt, Zomby, Lukid and Starkey) on Werkdiscs, the label he co-founded. After performances at the Tate Gallery, the Barbican or the ARTE Concert Festival (but before Sónar Barcelona this summer) Actress will be in Luxembourg for one of his legendary, mesmerizing live shows.
With “Mechanical Techno” Graham Dunning deliberately avoids the precision of computer-created music. His record deck is an installation that activates objects and instruments, leaving plenty of room for chance elements and turning sounds into perfectly imperfect music. Each set-up is unique, each performance is one-of-a-kind. Nobody will ever hear what you are about to hear!
Sensu started out as an experimental ambient DJ, but refocused his ambition, adding club music to his palette. Originally influenced by the Berlin techno sound of the nineties, he quickly reached further, always choosing a less direct path to get his message across. Avant-garde and modern classical music are still close to his heart, a love often displayed in his eclectic DJ sets. Over the past few years, he has delved into disco and industrial music.
