***Arnau Sala Saez is a musician and visual artist. His work transits different formats that feed off each other. Sound translates visual structures, and the form is condensed into sound compositions. Through this habitat Arnau is building a system in which its elements are related around the same consciousness.

His work is also conditioned by the Attention Deficit Disorder he suffers and for which he bases his methodology on the limitation of his tools and his forms of organization to few elements. A good
example is the “Multiplesofeleven project” where sound and visual compositions are constructed from multiple elements of the eleventh number or other research which explores the reduction of visual abundance through the use of a single color scale.

His work under the name Ex Continent is usually presented through live shows in which he proposes installations where sound, light and image coexist formally and conceptually. His latest projects under this alias are inspired by some trends that study the current social context and its influence on human consciousness. His imaginary develops through the narratives that global chaos, excess and confusion provide.

This interest in the consequences of systemic powers and their assimilation in the world of art and music have motivated a series of meetings where, through the platform he manages since 2012,
anomia.info, different people are invited (musicians, philosophers, therapists, etc.) to contribute diverse sorts of tools to manage these consequences.


***guest (Jabu/YoungEcho/Noods) builds chance-based compositions using mainly analogue machines. Fragments of sound, movement and material are trapped and amplified, creating sets that waver between transfixion and collapse. Her debut project heart is a system of loops, which often break or falter. Using 16mm film and a foetal heart monitor, she builds up a bloody and trance-like display of her insides.


***DSC + friends (Domestic Sound Cupboard) hosting band collective + special guests, playing improvised music based around electronics, brass, vocals, percussion...etc.
