LET'S DANCE | atonal 16

for the past five days, i spent most of my waking time in a dimension called Berlin Atonal, a festival for sonic and visual art. taking place at Kraftwerk, an old power plant and a couple of clubs next door (Ohm, Tresor, and Globus), it feels like an eery b&w virtual reality, with an occasional hint of bright red, purple or electric blue strobe lights shining through the heavy fog. even though i have to admit i liked last year's visuals a bit more, it was still pretty surreal and oh-so-mindblowing.

to be honest, i'm not a big fan of the generic techno played at mainstream parties, but luckily Atonal is about the experimental side of it. throw in a lot of alt, industrial acts, projects specially made for the festival/building, insane visual art, amazing sound system; and you can kinda get why i am so sad that it's over. on the other hand, 5 days of great performances starting at 8 PM and finishing at 8 AM is fucking crazy, and will leave your body and mind destroyed; especially if you go really ~wild~ like me on the last night. time to recover now, uh huh.

my top 3 shows:
Marshstepper w/ Varg, Drew McDowall, Silent Servant, and Loke Rahbek (such a killer combo!)
UF (Samuel Kerridge + Oake)
Silent Servant + Phase Fatale
