In functional programming, fold refers to a family of higher-order functions that analyze a recursive structure through use of a given combining operation, recombine the results of recursively processing its constituent parts, building up a return value. Map represents an associative abstract data type composed of a collection of key, value pairs. This is exactly what is happening with the cultural scene at the very moment. We systematically and methodically change concepts, mix online and offline life and try to offer an optimal solution for events and cultural enjoyment for all participants. We present interactive art, music & design – for visitors and online guests with artists* on site and around the world. This project received state funding.

## An On Bast

Fascinated by the endless possibilities of sound, Polish live performer and producer An On Bast continues her musical quest from 2006 – an abiding evolution of genre melding development, never ceasing to amaze her audience as she manoeuvres between shades of techno, house, ambient and beyond. An artist of the truest form, always aiming to paint a colourful image with her output, structured around a key theme of joy and positive energy every time she plays or creates. 

Anna’s fascination with music and deep desire to push herself to new heights has seen her work land on accomplished labels such as Carl Cox’s Awesome Soundwave – after a long lasting love affair with the label, 2021 saw her release her “I Create As I Speak” album which was welcomed with open arms around the globe. She has also landed her established sound on other prolific labels such as Modularfield, Detroit Underground, Pets Recordings, Kiosk ID and more. Alongside this Anna’s own Ghost Kitchen label has become a safe haven for her own productions, a liberating space giving her total freedom of what she can release, no strains involved meaning everything you hear is pure from the core. Anna released 9 albums and many Eps.

With his unmistakable style, El Lobo Digital’s live set creates an atmosphere that
that transports the audience into a dystopian world of energy and suspense,
a dark and fascinating fusion of techno and noir aesthetics.

## timodufner

Timo Dufner takes the audience on a techno-rave-acid-electro journey. Minimalist and pathetic. Break beat meets four on the floor. Whether as a DJ or as a hybrid live set, he will take you with him into a tunnel somewhere between the nineties and the year 2049.

The interest in sonic possibilities started early in his live. Since then he tried to expand acoustic and musical boundaries to what is possible. On the visual side he discovered TouchDesigner as his tool to express and expand the emotional structure. The relationship between the technical evolution and development of humanity is the theme of his work.

## Michael Fiedler

Michael Fiedler is a musician and producer based in Stuttgart, whose primary focus is on creating experimental electronic music and exploring new sonic possibilities. He is passionate about using both digital and analog instruments, as well as various effects pedals, to craft innovative and unique sounds.

He usese field recordings – recordings of ambient sounds from various environments – which he incorporates into his compositions to add an extra layer of depth and complexity to his music, resulting in a rich and immersive listening experience.

Through his work, Fiedler invites listeners to explore the limits of sound and to embrace the unknown. His experimental approach to music-making is a testament to his creativity and his willingness to take risks and push boundaries.

## Jonny König

Jonny König merges drums and effect-pedals into an immersive orchestra of sound. a bulb of rhythm illuminating fragile spaces – or throwing booming shadows. The ‚Drums&Percussion‚-magazine hails his work as one „sound-experience“ – „award-worthy“ and „fascinating“ in 2021. 

Jonny is a drummer/composer based in Mannheim, who feels equally comfortable in both the pop music and experimental music. In 2020, during the first lockdown of the COVID-19 pandemic, König’s experimentation in his own studio resulted in the creation of the foundation for his first instrumental solo album, ‚DEEP SPACE TRANSPORT‘. This album combines intricate rhythms, abstract drum sounds, and cinematic depth. The drum kit is expanded with an array of sounds, including various percussion instruments such as small Gamelan gongs, tongue drums, and repurposed kitchen utensils, as well as radical microphone techniques and sound manipulation through effects processors.

## Jaap Blonk

Jaap Blonk (born in 1953 in Woerden, Holland) is a composer, poet, musician, and performer.

He initially studied mathematics and musicology but later abandoned these studies. In the late 1970s, he started playing saxophone and composing. A few years later, he discovered his vocal potential, first reciting poems, then improvising and performing his own vocal compositions.

For almost 20 years, voice remained his primary means of discovering and researching new sounds. Around the year 2000, Blonk also began incorporating electronics into his work and, from 2006, he again had recourse to mathematics to generate sounds, texts, and visual works. Jaap Blonk has performed on all the continents of the world. Alongside his solo performances, he has worked with an extremely wide range of musicians and ensembles from the fields of contemporary and improvised music.

To date, his music has appeared on 27 CDs on his own Kontrans label. Other recordings have been released on labels including VICTO (Canada), Monotype Records (Poland), Relative Pitch Records and Balance Point Acoustics (both USA). Books containing his visual works have been published by publishing houses in Germany, the USA, and Canada.

Thomas Maos and his electronic guitar

Sein aktuelles Solo Album glühen wurde 2021 im Bereich Grenzgänge für den Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik nominiert. Tom Greenland vom NEW YORK CITY JAZZ RECORD schreibt darüber: …Der dramatische Bogen vieler seiner Tracks wird größtenteils von Kontrasten in Klangfarbe und Textur getragen, die so abgemischt sind, dass jeder markante Klang auf die gegenüberliegenden Seiten der Stereomischung verschoben wird, wodurch ein einnehmender „Dialog“ entsteht.“

timodufner
…is a musician, media artist and computer scientist. His work focuses on testing the limits of hardware and software. Glitches are an inevitable part of this process, which he consciously uses to his advantage. Another characteristic feature of his work is the direct interaction between sound and image as well as a two-way exchange between the audience and the piece. All of his work is created in real time – in the moment – making each performance unique. Real-time audio processing, machine learning and AI, live coding and numerous experimental devices are used to create an immersive viewing and listening experience.

GEARGRIND
Geargrind extemporises electronic music, live, with only little preparation before each show, which makes every performance unique. No software is involved in any of his shows. Instead, he uses digital and analog instruments to create a sound that oscillates between spheric-synthetic ambient sounds and hard acid trance.
