In collaboration with Laurent Güdel and Robert Torche – amongst many other fantastic people – Apian is growing its system for the Musikfestival Bern! The festival will take place this year between the 1st to 5th of September. The theme of the festival:
Schwärme, couldn’t be more connected to Apian’s inbuilt programme. For the occasion, Apian will present a new limb which will take the form of an art installation at the Dampfzentrale in Bern. The component will tackle questions of dreams, cybernetics, bees and therianthropic experiences via tones of positive and negative feedback loops through analogue videos and audio synthesisers!
