On the occasion of their 21st birthday, Mouse on Mars celebrate with the lavish two-day 21AGAIN Festival at Berlin's HAU - Hebbel am Ufer theatre on 31 October and 1 November 2014. With CTM leading the project's funding, finances, and PR, Mouse on Mars have curated a festival lineup that features many of their peers and artist friends. The event also highlights the Mouse on Mars 21AGAIN double CD and box set, released on the same date on Modeselektor's Monkeytown Records.
The 21AGAIN festival aims to present Mouse on Mars not as a band in the traditional sense, but rather as a discursive project fed by a nexus of people, collaborations, and feedback loops. Featuring contributions by fellow artists, musicians, theorists, and cultural mediators presenting both old and new projects, the Mouse on Mars 21AGAIN festival thus avoids the shape of a traditional retrospective, instead manifesting itself as a collaborative work of restless mutability.
Joining Mouse on Mars are fellow artists and collaborators: Tyondai Braxton, Ensemble Musikfabrik, Cavern of Anti-Matter, Oval, Laetitia Sadier, Siriusselektor (Gernot Bronsert + Siriusmo), Solistensemble Kaleidoskop, Candie Hank, Kathy Alberici, André de Ridder, DJ Elephant Power, Schlammpeitziger, DJ Scotch Egg, Mikodo, Mr. Maloke (Puppetmastaz), Vert, The Allophons, Pavan aka Limonious, Mesak & Claws Costeau, Stiletti Ana & Ya Tosiba A.k.a.
