Occulto Fest 2015 features the German premiere of Z’EV’s CINEmotion – an 
evolution of his previous project Cine-Cussion that presents audiovisual 
pieces accompanied by live electronic music. On the occasion, film 
footage of a metalmorphic performance of his produced in NYC in 1983 
will be used as the source material whose audio and video has been time 

The American poet, audiovisual artist, musician and percussionist active 
under the name Z’EV studied at CalArts with Concrete poet Emmett 
Williams. In the late 70s he started to build his own concussive and 
percussive instruments, mostly out of metal and other industrial 
materials, and to perform with them. His 1988 LP “BUST THIS!” was chosen 
by The Wire as one of the fifty best percussion-based records of all 
time. In his own words, his “aesthetic interests focus on the 
manipulation of time and duration and the production of acoustic and 
cymatic phenomena”, and his “work with text and sound has been 
influenced by primarily – but not only, middle eastern mystical systems, 
as well as African, Afro-Caribbean and Indonesian music and culture.”

Works of his has been released over the course of more then 35 years by 
labels such as Subterranean, Avant, Die Stadt, Important Records. He had 
collaborations with (among others) Konrad Becker, Alkistis Dimech, Lydia 
Lunch, Merzbow, Stephen O’Malley, Chris Watson and John Zorn.



Born in Vienna and based in Berlin, PURE has been making uncompromising 
electronic music since 1992. On stage he sculpts abstract sonic stories 
from evolving textures, pulsating repetitions and dynamic breaks using 
both hard- and software that equally affect the listener’s brains and 
bodies. While being one of the driving forces bringing techno culture to 
Vienna in the early 90s – as DJ, producer and organizer, he departed 
from that style soon after and moved on to less explored, harsher fields 
of electronic dance. His turn towards experimental electronic music in 
the second half of the 90s went hand in hand with getting into 
programming his own music software. He uses this knowledge since then 
for computer based live performances and teaching at various 
universities and education facilities. Since 2003 he’s developed the 
HEART CHAMBER ORCHESTRA together with Erich Berger; an award-winning 
audio-visual composition for 12 musicians in which the heartbeats of the 
musicians create a score in real time. He recently started to 
reintegrate beat-oriented compositions into his live performances 
creating a dynamic collage of abstract soundscapes and heavy, bodily music.

He has over 30 physical and digital releases on labels such as Editions 
Mego as BOLDER (with Martin Maischein), PURE and ILSA GOLD, on 
Hinterzimmer with his electronic percussion duo PRSZR (with Rafal 
Iwanski), on Crónica, Praxis, Staalplaat, Drop Bass Network and many more.



*Everest Magma*is the latest incarnation of the hyperprofilic Italian 
musician behind Rella the Woodcutter, a project that has already a 
number of releases on Boring Machines and one on La Délirante. In recent 
years, he put aside his psych-folk attitude and got his hands on a bunch 
of machines, tape recorders and pedal effects. The results, released 
once again by Boring Machines, confirm his desire and ability to push 
towards the extreme borders of any genre and instrument he confronts 
himself with.

Recorded in the Summer of 2014 while all the neighborhood was on 
vacation, Everest Magma’s debut album Modern / Antique exemplifies the 
multifaceted spectrum of sounds he’s currently willing to study. Raw 
loops of almost broken circuitry, semi-danceable beats are sometimes 
interrupted by more meditative and spacey moments or disturbed by 
stretched and unintelligible vocals.
