I just got a festival pass for this, but I’m curious if folks have opinions of any of the artists showing here, whether sound or visual art.

I’m well familiar with Ben Frost, Holly Herndon, Suzanne Ciani, Pfadfinderei, and Thom Yorke. Digging into the others.

Bretschneider is sort of ‘vintage’ mid/late 90s minimal electronics, when glitch actually meant something with early laptop audio work and wasn’t a goofy hashtag to describe seemingly everything electronic. Nord modular too if I recall. Old Raster-Noton/Mille Plateaux zones.
