Recently, !Mediengruppe Bitnik – Carmen Weisskopf and Domagoj Smoljo – developed Cryptoraves in collaboration with Omsk Social Club: performative events including live action role-playing games, dance parties and crypto currencies. Visitors are invited to take part in the participative performance by registering on the Cryptorave website and allowing their computer to mine the anonymous crypto currency Monero in order to unlock information about the party and the role to be played. By joining their computing power, the participating community collectively generates value to enable the autonomous dance party experience. Through the online mining process, participants unlock their LARP identity, the Cryptorave reader and finally their entry ticket to the rave.

The acts Ven3mo (CH), Primitive Art (IT), Crystallmess (FR) and Suutoo (GB) will play live at the Cryptorave.
Ven’3mo is a Geneva-based multidisciplinary artist, DJ and researcher. She plays with sound in order to explore notions of hybridisation and mutation – looking at music as a vector for transformation and deconstruction. Her sets are not subject to one genre and are filled with different textures and narratives.
Primitive Art is an Italian experimental music band founded in 2011 by the collaboration of Matteo Pit and Jim C. Nedd. Digital soundscapes provide the arena for timbres, melodies, verses and spoken words to crash into one another. Within the haze, the duo winds up its chaotic energy, channeling their intimate songs in strange territories.
Through the medium of DJing, Crystallmess concentrates on the analysis of so-called „subcultures“ and the influence of black diasporas. Through the multiplication of references to dancehall, soca, logobi and hip-hop, Crystallmess manifests the importance of these currents in the formation of new musical territories. Her expressive sets decolonise club culture, inviting us to rethink the future.
Multi-disciplinary artist and musician Suutoo creates soundscapes both harmonious and discordant. Utilising fantasy as a weapon of choice, Suutoo destroys the gods you thought you worshipped and lets you swallow light.
