The Volker Winck Quartett shows improvisations that pave the way for his fellow musicians to interact. Florian Weber disperses an adventurous web of sequences. Jens Heisterhagen and Christian Schoenefeldt give a straight ahead or more of an openly pulsating direction and the bandleader creates highly expressive and occasionally also melancholic/overcast sounds on his saxophone. Innovative modern jazz par excellence.
Volker Winck: Tenor/soprano saxophone, Florian Weber: Grand Piano, Jens Heisterhagen: Double Bass, Christian Schoenefeldt: Drums

In Stefan Demmings “Videoloopmachine” clips from well-known cine films are sampled in loops so as to compose image and sound rhythms out of them. The starting and end points of the short loops are rearranged in several steps so that a film excerpt is temporally diagonally scanned. The aim of the work is to generate audiovisual compositions on the basis of found footage with their original sound.

Synchronator is an audiovisual project by Bas van Koolwijk and Gert-Jan Prins, for which the artists have developed their own electronics. The project is a continuation on medium specific experiments between image and sound from the early years of video art. The dual screen live performance, in which both both artists produce audio and video signals, is entirely based on improvisation. All signals will be generated live and routed through the custom build hardware.

Thursday night, DJ Dom Thomas of the label Finders Keepers will dive deep into the pool of vinyl-heavy music history for well-known sounds from jazz, folk and funk from 11 p.m. in "Glanz und Gloria". He’ll create brilliant retro sound patterns in which oriental sounds also feel at home. With his own club night in Manchester and on internationals tours, Dom Thomas throws his material at the feet of dance-crazy crowds.

The EMAF after-work party continues with Mikro Machine and DJ Stylwarz, from Hamburg, from 11 p.m. Friday night in "Five Elements", beneath the dome light of the imposing, twelve-metre high roundhouse. They belong to the first generation of German hip hop DJs. Oldschool, Nuschool, Mash Up, Funk, Rock and, to boot, a heart of soul will be turned inside out till the crowd goes crazy.

From 11 p.m. Saturday night, the party continues into the early hours with "The Smack" in "Glanz und Gloria". Driving, energetic minimal techno, with everything you expect and more, is created by drums, bass and synthesizer. For a dance band, playing hand-made techno means surviving a discerning, dance-crazy audience, which The Smack excel at.
