• Thursday 6th July at the Rossi Bar: Új Bála / Sonaura / A New Question

    Új Bála: noise, psychedelia & the fringes of techno
    Sonaura: Dreamy drones, crunchy tape loops and found sounds.
    A New Question: Twisted sounds; absurdist poetry

    Gábor Kovács is a Budapest/Brussels-based musician and visual artist, also an alumni artist of the Shape platform. Active in a number of projects, he works with a wide range of genres and sounds, although his main output is Új Bála. Új Bála merges noise, psychedelia and fringes of techno and summons the rhythmic skeletons of dance music to bring order to his backdrop of mangled synth noises. In the past couple of years Új Bála released on labels such as Plaque, Baba Vanga, Altered States Tapes, Czaszka Rec.,Lost Dogs Entertainment or Dalmata Daniel, performed at festivals like Schiev(Bruxelles), Les Siestes Électroniques(Toulouse), Novas Frequencias(Rio de Janeiro), Rokolectiv(Bucharest), Tauron Nowa Muzyka (Katowice), Pohoda(Trencin), Next Festival(Bratislava), Uh Fest(Budapest) and played in clubs and DIY spaces all across Europe with his live act.

    Sonaura – dreamy drones, crunchy tape loops and found sounds from Kent.

    A New Question is a solo project that takes organic sounds and twists them electronically, interwoven with absurdist poetry and cut-up monologue to create moments that attempt to communicate something that neither sound design or poetry can quite capture alone

    Hosted by our very own DJ Cheesemaster

    Chris [Symmetrical Forces] creates live visuals for each performance using his own lo-fi footage, dusty VHS tapes and obscure videos from the internet to create futuristic images from the past overlayed with out-of-reach memories and vague fragments of lost visions.

    The Rossi Bar is a small grade II building, and they are restricted with how they can improve access for anyone with mobility issues. The live music venue is located in the basement, which can only be accessed by a short spiral staircase. More accessibility information and images of the venue are in this document:
