Kris Limbach - Pierce Warnecke - Hopek Quirin

Hopek Quirin (Berlin) plays objects, micro-tapes, motors and effects. He is collaborating with Jochen Arbeit (Soundscapes, Stupid Green), Anton Mobin, Kris Limbach, Bryan Lewis Saunders, Kotomi Nishiwaki, Maureen Lopez, MaCu, Classwar Karaoke, ABQ, Tomas Nochteff (Mueran Humanos) and has released work with Anton Mobin and Kris Limbach (EM003) at Emitter19 and at H.A.K Lo-Fi.

Pierce Warnecke’s work stems from interest in the efects of time on matter: modifcation, deterioration and disappearance. Whether the focus is on digital forms or rough materials, large scales of time or microscopic details, the goal of my work is to re-adapt existing sound, visual or physical objects and materials into parallel contexts where their signifed meanings, symbols and cultural connections have become residual ghosts. I like to imagine false paradigms, inexistent branches of research and fctional sciences in order to create unrealistic questionings as a basis for a new work. Form emerges through a process of collecting, fltering and combining phenomena (objects, data, sounds, images) that is linked to the conjecture. There are explorations and structures in this 'research' but no conclusions, except the ones you make.

Pierce Warnecke is a sound and video artist from California, currently residing in Berlin after living in France for 10 years. He graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2007 and in 2013 completed his Meisterschüler (Masters) studies at Universität der Kunst Berlin (Media Art / Generative Art) under Dr. Alberto de Campo. Recent projects include collaborations with Frank Bretschneider (visuals for his latest work "SINN+FORM" on raster noton) and Matthew Biederman (sound for "Perspection"). In addition to artistic works, he co-curates Emitter Micro festival and label with Kris Limbach in Berlin. 

He has presented his works at KW Institut (Berlin), LEAP (Berlin), FEED (Berlin), Harvestworks (NY), Berklee (Boston), CalArts (LA) as well as festivals like CTM, Elektra, Zero1 Biennale, Transmediale, Bozart/BEAF (Brussels), Semibreve Festival (PT), MadeiraDig (PT), Mirage Festival, LAB30 (DE), Boston Cyberarts, Visionsonic (FR), Vidéoformes (FR), SXSW Interactive (US) and more. 

Kris Limbach (born in 1978) is a sound and visual artist residing in Berlin. Although his focus is on sound, he is also involved in film projects since 1998, exploring constantly formats and aesthetics of cinema and his experimental film project “The Lost Color” recently premiered at IBAFF Spain. In his sound art work he uses film-editing techniques, prepared drums, tape manipulation, no input mixing and a vast amount of raw and processed fieldrecordings. He released on labels such as Richard Garet's Contour Editions, Staaltape, Modisti, Framework Radio, Agxivatein and collaborated with artists like Pierce Warnecke, Hopek Quirin, Anton Mobin, Jochen Arbeit, Rinus van Alebeek, Miguel A. Garcia, Juan Antonio Nieto aka Pangea, Lisa Müller-Trede and more. He curates, together with Pierce Warnecke, the emitter micro label and emitter micro festival, a biennial experimental sound Festival in Berlin. He is part of the artist collective Aktuelle Architektur der Kultur (AADK).
