6th SEPTEMBER 2018
We're thrilled to introduce our new work in collaboration with Kat Day of The KVB which we are going to present for the first time tomorrow at A E N - Ars Electronica Nightline in Linz, Austria.

6 years ago my obsession for modernist architecture lead me to start studying photography, just about the same time when group A started to throw paints on stage in small punk venues and galleries. In the 3 years of my college life, i enthusiastically kept on visiting those in danger of being demolished and took thousands of photos some of which i exhibited and made a book for my graduation. Since then i have been looking for a way to integrate these works into my musical and performance expression as group A.

Based on our shared love of architecture, we attempt to reinterpret modernist architecture by integrating my photography works with Kat Day's 3D digital renders, which will be processed via analogue video machines to create living fragmentations of concrete constructions. The video will be manipulated live in response to group A's music, who will in turn respond with sound - a feedback loop of architectural distortions.

Kat Day - Since studying Fine Art at Goldsmiths, architecture has been a constant subject of her investigations into the haptic perception of digital and analogue media. For her degree show, she created a playable video game version of a derelict dollhouse she found on the street in South London and throughout her time as one half of The KVB, architectural structures have appeared frequently in both Kat's live visuals and album artworks.

26th JUNE 2018
group A x Dead Slow Ahead present "PLANET A" at KlubRナ at Roskilde Festival 2018 on 4th and 5th July.

"This year KlubRナ presents a reinterpreted version of an universe that merges art and music. Inspired by the Science Fiction-trilogy 銑ilith痴 Brood by Octavia E. Butler, KlubRナ will be moving into a space of cyborgs, aliens and hybrid beings, questioning what it means to be human in a time, in which it is too late to regress.
KlubRナ wishes to examine how human痴 destructive behaviour changes the world, but intends also to highlight how the changing conditions have a potential of introducing new ways of being in the world, which questions hierarchical structures and opens to alternate perceptions of gender constructions."

Our recent focus and conversation about environmental concerns lead us to think about the human evolution in much larger scale. When we met up with our fellow visual artist, Dead slow ahead (CHE/DE), the question naturally directed him to experiment with and on own appearances, using photo montage technique in a 3D animation software, in order to create avant-garde human forms of the future. As a result, we have created our own imaginary post-apocalyptic world "PLANET A".
