Noise Gate is an investigational, recurring format that has been established at HeK during the last few years. The event provides a platform for electronic music and demonstrates its diverse and experimental character.
Similar to an electronic rush, the energetic music of Giant Swan convinces with a trembling bass, industrial percussion and hypnotically raging improvisation. The British duo – Robin Stewart and Harry Wright – are well known for their live performances, whereas no two performances are the same. In recent years Giant Swan has explored the limits of techno-not-techno with EP releases on labels such as Howling Owl (2015), FuckPunk (2016), Timedance (2017), Mannequin (2018) and most recently Whities (2018).
With his brute post-industrial music, the Swiss solo artist S S S S (alias Samuel Savenberg) wants to break the expectations of a classical concert format and creates new spaces for sound. In his performances he integrates live rhythmic frequencies via an Electribe and combines various influences; from industrial, noise and drone to dark techno. Savenberg has been working as a solo artist since 2014 and has been acknowledged internationally. Since then, he released works such as Administration of Fear (2014), Tyranny of Intimacy (2016) or more recently Absence (2019), which was published by the label Haunter Records.
