About Felix Kubin:

FELIX KUBIN, born in a spring roll during a car accident, was a
lovechild of the homerecording era. His activities include futurist
pop, radio plays, electroacoustic, and works for chamber orchestra.
In 1998, he founded Gagarin Records. Kubin's music is saturated by
enthusiasm for disharmonic pop, industrial noise, and 20th-century
avant-garde music. In the last 20 years he has released a large
number of diverse albums and played over 70 electronic music festivals.
One of electronic music's most dynamic performers, he likes to move
between high and low culture, clubs and concert halls, as his main
concern is the shifting of contexts and expectations.

Bevin Kelley (BLEVIN BLECTUM) is an electronic musician and multimedia
composer. Her performances are often loose narratives incorporating
live interactive electronic sound, manipulated field recordings,
film, action and costume. She holds degrees in English, Violin
Performance, Electronic Music and Recording Media, and Veterinary
Nursing. She has released four solo albums, and many more in
collaboration with other musicians and filmmakers. Bevin is one half
of the sonic/stage duo Blectum From Blechdom, recipients of the
2001 Ars Electronica Award of Distinction in Digital Music. She
was one fourth of the audio/visual band Sagan. Her multimedia work
is often text-based, including a series of pieces based on Philip
K. Dick's short story 'The Preserving Machine', in which sheet music
is transformed into creatures and back again.

This concert is presented with the support of the Goethe-Institut Boston
