ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Sonoscopia: Phobos
Dysfunctional Robotic Orchestra (Portugal)

Performed by Gustavo Costa and Tiago Angelo
Phobos is a set of small robots and automatic music generation devices that form a Disfunctional Robotic Orchestra, an orchestra with strange instruments with defects, genetic mutations and erratic behaviors.
Phobos represents a critique of the technological overlapping over human thought, the function of labour and modern forms of slavery, as well as an historical retrospective of the various attempts of human liberation through machines, its technological utopias, the advances and retreats of freedoms. Its name comes from greek mythology, where Phobos is the incarnation of fear, and is also the name of the largest moon of Mars, doomed to disappear due to the proximity of its orbit to the planet.

Hermit Thrushes (Philadelphia):

“Philadelphia’s Hermit Thrushes are happy to confound and challenge. Their latest album, Potsherd Gold Meadow, is part noise collage, part field recording, part deconstructed folk music, part experimental-jazz-weird rock potpourri. If you hear a little bit of unconventional, hard-to-categorize groups like God Is My Co-Pilot, Marmoset and U.S. Maple in what they do, you are not alone. (Album) Potsherd Gold Meadow is forever falling apart, strange sketches, ideas expanding, but it doesn’t feel unfinished. Its refusal of polish, refusal to capitulate, is its ethos.” – Jes Skolnik/Impose
