KRAKE OPENING AMBIENT NIGHT @ PASSIONSKIRCHE
MURCOF (leaf, static discos)
THOMAS KÖNER (touch, mille plateaux)
BERSARIN QUARTETT (denovali records)
FLOEX (quazi delict records)
ADAM WEISHAUPT (krake)
We start off the festival with a massive line up of the finest in ambient and electronica, presented in one of the most beautiful locations in Berlin, the Passionskirche, an old church in the center of the city.
MURCOF is a very modern composer, who utilizes technology to make epic, moving suites of music with a spiritual undertow. He draws on minimalism, post modernism and baroque music to create music that moves the mind and heart. The shows of this south american artist are rare, and we are particularly proud to have him on board this year. Pioneering multi media artist THOMAS KÖNER is the second headliner of this evening, another special feature we are proud to present.

For friday and saturday the KRAKE FESTIVAL moves to his headquarter, the infamous Suicide Circus, a midsize club with two floors and a long, long tradition.
On friday we present a midnight concert of ULRICH SCHNAUSS, undoubtedly one of the most prolific ambient producers of all times.
Also playing are SHRUBBN!! a collaboration of T.raumschmiere and Schieres focussing on dark drones, who present their latest cooperation with the visual trio TRANSFORMA, known for his work with Apparat and others. With POLE and others following on the main floor, this night will cover anything from ambient to techno crossing over dub techno, electro and whatever.
On the outside floor ALEX SMOKE is keen to present an extended daring dj set far away from how you may know him. And we are happy to have him do exactly that.
This is what we want, and this is what this festival is about!

KRAKE @ SUICIDE CIRCUS
TIM EXILE (warp) - live
CEEPHAX ACID CREW (rephlex) - live
LAKKER (killekill, blueprint) - live
BUDDY (schematic) - live
BARKER (ostgut ton, leisure system)

The saturday night focusses on rougher sounds on the main floor. Vocalist TIM EXILE will leave you standing with your mouth open, when he builds weird electronica tracks from sounds he makes with his mouth only. Rephlex-artist CEEPHAX ACID CREW, brother to the infamous Squarepusher, will kick the audience's bottom with his very own definition of an acid inferno. Another highlight is the newcomer scottish duo LAKKER, who fascinated with their recent releases on KILLEKILL and blueprint and the unique mixture of techno, IDM and dubstep, they work on. No wonder their tracks get played a lot by people like Aphex Twin or Surgeon.
