The first edition of BSB at Spektrum will feature two different sets of connected short films:
1. “Glitch Is Fucked” (see below for playlist)
… or should that read ‘Glitch Is Fucking Great!’? We’re not sure. Herein we will explore those visions which will either glorify or lay waste to the so-called Glitch Movement. Get ready for epileptic blasts of computer graphics; rainbowing mushrooms of data corruption; analog synaesthesia processes; documents of pseudo-science; propaganda for non-existent conspiracies; classic early-internet viral weirdness; found videos from unknown sources; and maybe the odd cartoon.
2. “Music is Fucked Too”
It’s a lot like the first one, except you can nod your head and talk if you want to.
May your video life contain flashing lights!

ASTEPBACK are an expanded cinema/dance performance group from Naples, Italy, using multiple Super-8 film projectors and a slide projector to interact with the motion of bodies in space. Visually, their projections are a celebration of tactile film manipulation techniques – scratching, patching, piercing, and drawings with ink and wax are then multiplied onto different walls at different speeds. Complimented by self-made photosensitive sound devices, audio is generated from these different light sources and in turn feeds a feedback loop that interacts and changes with the stage movement. ASTEPBACK will present their performance entitled “AMORFIA chapter1” (dedicated to Carlo Cafiero) in their Berlin debut.
ASTEPBACK are Gaëlle Cavalieri and Andrea Saggiomo. In 2007 they founded their own theater company in Naples and many of their productions have since won awards and been showcased in national and international festivals. Aside from his theatrical performance art works, Andrea Saggiomo performs as the expanded cinema project 70fps and in this guise he has improvised and collaborated with musicians and international artists including Andy Guhl and Seppo Renvall.
BOTBORG – http://botborg.com
Botborg is an Australian audio-visual group that fuses and rewires raw electronic signals to create intensely visceral experiences of sound-color synaesthesia. Using their own complex feedback network known as the ‘Photosonicneurokineasthograph’, Botborg create totally live multi-sensory assaults of interdependent color and rhythm, pushing the limits of technology to invoke the maximum possible stimulation of their audience’s mind and body. Botborg work with a level of experimentation and improvisation that places them in a territory outside traditional musical or cinematic formats, where the boundaries between art, science, and philosophy mutate until they are rendered meaningless. Botborg has hosted live demonstrations at many prestigious music, film, and media festivals throughout Europe, Australia, Japan, and North America.
Disclaimer: Botborg demonstrations often include very loud sound played in combination with very fast flashing/strobe light.
Good ‘ol Super8 film/sound manipulation performance. And done how it should be.
