ТЕПЛОТА is the London-based duo of Grundik Kasyansky & Tom Wheatley. Their work interrogates the haptic, social and liberating relationships with technologies old & new; using feedback synthesizer and computational double bass, they fuse a spontaneous interplay orthogonally over cyclical structures, with techno as perpetual fulcrum. For their debut at IKLECTIK, Ute Kanngiesser will open the evening with solo music for cello.
Their debut record HEAT/WORK was released on Cafe OTO’s digital label TakuRoku in late 2020. Realised though a palimpsestic (over)dub process, its two cuts document explorations that orbit 130bpm. Throughout 2021 they are releasing the ЭС series: monthly singles where they further investigate notions of heat, work, cycles and time.
Ute Kanngiesser is a London based cellist from Germany.
Over the years, she has worked on carefully deconstructing her classical roots, playing only unscripted music based on the alive material of her instrument, its limitless resonance and pulse, its potential for an elemental music that dissolves conventional notions of rhythm and pitch and what it means to be lyrical. Along this journey, she has collaborated with some of the most influential musicians in free music and experimental composition in the UK and beyond. However, much of her musical voice has developed in the context of other art forms – dance, film, poetry, literature.
Dragos is a Romanian DJ and Radio Host based in London. Exploring the emotional bond between records from a wide array of genres and times. With the aim to further deepen the point of contact between experimental sound and the primordial need for rhythm. His journey includes local radio shows from NTS, Balami and Netil Radio to international shows on The Lot in New York, Red Light Radio in Amsterdam and Radio Relativa in Madrid. Currently he is running a monthly show on Netil Radio called JAS where he has hosted the likes of Khidja,ТЕПЛОТА and Jaye Ward to name a few. In addition, Dragos has been playing regularly and sparsely for the past 10 years in local venues such as Brilliant Corners, Spiritland, Earth Hackney, Southbank Centre and The Glove That Fits to name a few.
