DISK Welcomes mobilegirl

We're excited to have mobilegirl join DISK Agency. mobilegirl first caught the scene's attention with her leftfield r&b edits of iconic divas J.Lo and TLC. Like many of her friends at Staycore, she joined the Stockholm label casually. Following several European dates including a much-hyped performance during this year's Unsound Festival, the Berlin-based artist continues playing all around the continent, and has a December Asia tour lined-up.

New Special Project: Andrey Smirnov Performance & Lecture

We're honoured to be representing Russian researcher and musician Andrey Smirnov, for his special project "Polyrhythmoform #1". This piece was specially-composed for the Rhythmicon instrument, which is regarded as the world's first electronic rhythm machine. It was created by famed Russian thinker and musical experimenter Leon Theremin in 1931. Complementing this performance, Smirnov has developed a lecture about Theremin and the history of the Rhythmicon in the context of the artistic avant-gardes of post-revolutionary Russia.

MusicMakers Hacklab Goes on the Road

A collaborative, improvisatory, experimental environment, the MusicMakers Hacklab invites artists, technologists and researchers in the fields of sound, image and related arts to imagine and realise new musical ideas. Conceived by Peter Kirn (CDM) and CTM Festival Berlin, the initiative is now represented by DISK Agency and has begun to travel. First stop: a weeklong event at MUTEK.MX Festival in October 2016. The project is available for interested festivals, events and initiatives worldwide, and can be adjusted to a variety of themes, formats and durations.

Special Project Available: Still Be Here with Hatsune Miku

A giant video triptych sets the stage for virtual pop idol Hatsune Miku, who appears center stage as a 3D hologram projected onto an Dilat-film screen. The stunning meld of hyperreal animation, subtle dance performance, documentary-like interludes, and original score and live sound processing by critically-acclaimed producer Laurel Halo is topped by Miku’s ethereal, unfaltering voice. This unique performance / installation is now available for shows worldwide.
