Dj. Flugvél Og Geimskip (Airplane & Spaceship) is a one woman project that draws influences from a thousand worlds. Defined as electronic horror music with a space twist, the music is a mix of playful beats, cool bass, catchy melodies and high pitched vocals.
Slattern is the solo project of Julia Ryckman. Infusing sentimental bedroom doo-wop longing with a laissez-faire femme fatalistic vision. Slattern is music for one to listen to while making private summertime excursions through densely populated (and dense) crowds with shades always drawn down and eye steadily on the moment.
Ghost Twin is a dark electronic dance collaboration between filmmakers / musicians Karen & Jaimz Asmundson from Winnipeg, Canada. They combine roaring synthlines, dirty pulsing bass, dreamy guitar, and a haunting vocal dichotomy where Baroque meets Industrial, with live video percussion that feeds cinema through a cut-up technique imbued with occult aesthetics.
Quotes about Dj. Flugvél Og Geimskip:
“Utterly charming and hugely entertaining, she could have taught The Knife a thing or two about staging and The Flaming Lips that spectacle can also work on an intimate scale.”
The Arts Desk
“Her vocal register seem to suggest some kind of MiddleEastern musical influence, the electronics some oddball Jpop influence, and the project as a whole suggests she’s possibly picking up some kind of outerspace influence. Memorable.”
“We dip in and out of a few other shows, but our final treat of this year’s festival turns out to be DJ. Flugvél og Geimskip, a slip of a girl who plays bonkers cyborg space music of crazily highpitched vocals, glitchy dancing and earsplitting electronics. It’s mystical, mischievous and entirely marvellous.”
“…there’s always something rewarding about seeing someone do exactly what they want.”
