The enigmatic name of SHXCXCHCXSH is synonymous to a dynamic and highly reviewed catalogue of haunting and abstract experimental techno. The duo met in Stockholm, with both members having a solid background in music production from various genres. Based in Norrköping, their first release on the label Semantica gained a notorious reputation for their steady stream of highly qualitative releases. With a sonic palette consisting of rich sound textures, piercing synths and droning melodies, woven together into a unique and clear narrative, they’ve found a home in the label Avian as well as their own Rösten.
Balancing between light and dark as well as the realms of drone, noise and conventional techno, the group must be described as versatile and broad in their productional endeavour. Relying on rich textural sounds ingenious even alone, they create an end product with qualities both contemplatively thought-seeking, co-aligning with prodigious and astounding when heard in a club context.
Seeking to enhance the musical impression further, the music of SHXCXCHCXSH will be paired with one of the most spectacular venues that Stockholm has to offer, the old nuclear reactor of KTH. For this set, VJ Annie Tådne accompanies with an interdisciplinary approach to visual expression, augmenting the soundscapes with rhythm, light and texture as elements. Tådne is an audiovisual artist working with various forms of visual media for theater, concerts, clubs, and art installations. Her performances and creations form a context for the music giving the audience an immersive and spatial experience.
