Sound art and post-tonal theory come together to embrace alternative notions of musical time

Rhythm is that which articulates time and can broadly be considered as the entire ebb and flow of music.

But beyond the limitations of grid-time, quantised time or divisible time exists another realm of musical time which can be created through complex means, and yet still be heard and felt somewhat intuitively.

For their performance at Roskilde, the Berlin-based sonic duo LABOUR (Farahnaz Hatam and Colin Hacklander) embrace alternative notions of time as embodied in musical structures through algorithmic composition and psychoacoustics that potentially evoke abstract emotive qualities in a set characterised by dynamic extremes.

This LABOUR performance is entirely electronic. 

Trained in molecular biology, Farahnaz Hatam works primarily with SuperCollider, a complex platform for audio synthesis and algorithmic composition that is a language unto itself. Colin Hacklander is a percussionist, drummer and composer, with a background in post-tonal theory and electronic music.
