This is in via Todd Barton.

Full details via

"This is a 100% modular synthesizer party.
All live sets.

Cables of Love

From subtle minimal and classic Techno, House & Acid, roaring noise and gently massaging subs to laser light shows & live visual projections of sound, Cables Of Love with the Humboldthain bring together a diverse range of local, pan-European and international talent for an extravaganza of ear-pleasing and booty shaking pleasure.

2 Stagess: 1 for Techno / House / Acid Party Dancing, 1 for Experimental, lots of live acts with their various Modular and DIY Synths.

Further additions to the Line Up TBA in due time but for now, here's some of the acts and their bios can be found below:

Laser Bros (AT/CZ)
Laser Bros creates a synesthetic experience of beauty by connecting 2D-laser projections and body shaking electric sound waves generated in real time by an analog modular synthesizer. Changing the visual will modify the audible and vice versa.
Laser Bros is a collaboration of Bernhard Rasinger (a.k.a. BR Laser) and Václav Peloušek (a synthesizer inventor at Bastl Instruments).


What happens if sophisticated modular synthesis meets driving beats? #INSTANTBONER (Johannes Steyer and Matthias Millhoff) are the most ambiguous newcomer to the Berlin club scene. The duo, hailing from Berlin's Kreuzberg, pulls off a unique and live electronic performance far beyond just playing pre-produced tracks. Abstract electrical and extravagant harmonic tones are combined with repetitive rhythms and driving basses. The audience experiences the creative process and is mesmerized by analog sound and the unusual musical setup. Modular synthesizer components and a computer based drum machine pulsate in rhythm and the electronic orchestra is conducted by knob twisting, button pushing and cable patching.


casper electronics (USA)

Casper Electronics is the live act of Peter Edwards, collaborator and designer from Bastl Instruments who is responsible for magical synths like the SoftPop and BitRanger among many others.

His live sets are built on gnarly waves of feedback distorted and pierced by heavy beats. Dirty tribal grooves can easily turn into fat and rusty industrial 4/4 techno and vice versa. Edwards' setup is dominated by a flashing light sphere as a galvanizing faux bonfire of the party ritual. There is no border between artist and audience, the crowd just creates one wild dancing beast.


Goldwiener & Luma //Chroma

Goldwiener is Dr. Wiener and Miss G. aka Luma //Chroma/ on 100% Live Analog Generative Visuals + Vocals.
Representing #ACID, Goldwiener is Berlin's 1st and only 100% live modular-acid full AV dance party experience: Bootylicious funky acid sounds carried out by heavy bass beatz. All analogue, always playing live.
The connected visuals from Luma //Chroma open a window to another cosmos in which myriads of unidentifiable shaped entities communicate with each other.
After working with Modest Mouse in NYC, Wiener returned to Berlin & begun experimenting with Visualist Luma// Chroma.


Cosmic Orbit 3030 (FR)

Cosmic Orbit 3030 is the musical part of the duo _COAST^.
This performence will be their live debut. Designed around a simple musical concept, the machine disappears to let the audience fully experience the cycles of pressure in the air moving around them. Let yourself sink in and follow the sequence, we'll meet down the rabbit hole.


AtoV (FR)

Mad scientist by day and designer by night AtoV will be debuting his live techno project that bring his prototypes to the stage.


Robbertunist feat. D҉ÈAF͘͝E͟T̕H҉̷͢OS (IRE)
Live Modular Synth & Pure Data improvised rhythmic noise jam.

Robin Burke (aka Robbertunist) plays analog synthesizers & performs live improvised pieces ranging from Drone to Rhythmic Noise with either modular or DIY synths.
Adhamh De Búrca (aka D҉ÈAF͘͝E͟T̕H҉̷͢OS) is a highly developed percussionist yet has delved deep into the software based sound production tool Pure Data which he uses to break tonal and rhythmic boundaries once unknown.


Ashley M Puente as Perpetual Ash (USA)

Ashley M Puente is a performer, improviser, and visual artist on eurorack/electronics who is interested in working with the intersection between rhythms and drones to create a landscape of sound with focus on the background and foreground of the whole picture.. Her music and visual artwork are inspired by the 60’s and 70’s light and space movement that emerged in the West Coast. Her sound records and captures the active nature of light and atmosphere, creating a soundscape of noise and rhythmic patterns, while her visuals trace light both to freeze and animate the capabilities of its endless form
