Movie “Welcome To the Machine”
We will show a documentary about the music business called “Welcome to the Machine”. It is a 100 min. long movie that will tackle quite interesting facts and insides on how to make it and break it in an ever changing industry. We have previewed the movie and have to say it rocks! A band is followed during their first steps of their career, with all ups and downs. Additionally about 100 music experts have been interviewed, including various famous musicians and business people, giving their opinion on matters such as label, pr, image, live-gigs, piracy, and much more. Really entertaining and informative documentary! Previously screened at the Berlin Music Week, Waves Vienna Festival, Soundtrack Cologne and the Exground Film Festival. www.welcometothemachine.at

L!ve Guests “Levni & Sloth Pallas“
Having known each other since high school, the Istanbulian duo Levni & Sloth Pallas live in Vienna at the moment where they continue their music career. They have been making music together for several years in different contexts and being 2\3 rds of the Well Gedacht collective, they both appreciate and create a wide variety of music including noise, experimental, free improvisation and hip hop. It’s difficult to pinpoint a specific genre for Levni & Sloth Pallas’ music, but it mostly consists of rich synth melodies and striking bass lines. After performing together at the ‘Istanbul Spesiyal’ party series organized by Bretterbodendisko, Levni & Sloth Pallas teamed up for a brand new EP which is coming up within a few months. In this new 5-track EP you’ll hear the combination of beats&synths of Levni&Sloth Pallas, MC/Producer Stormtrap Asifeh’s rhymes and Dilara Sakpinar’s vocals.
Looking forward to another great night!
