“We are drowning in stories,” says Laurie Anderson. And her story? She initially wanted to become a physicist, ended up at art school instead, wrote her first symphony for car horns, then switched to electric violin and produced electronic music, recorded films and collected stories from outer space...
Theo Burt will show a series of videos from his ongoing Remixes project - existing commercial music videos are fed automatically through a mathematical processes, collapsing the structure and time of sound and image.
Mieko Suzuki uses time and space as her canvas, which she colours with rhythms and harmonies. In her highly unconventional DJ sets and performances, during which she works with drones, noise and field recordings, with the crackling of electrical circuits and snippets of vinyl records, the Hiroshima-born sound artist is not afraid of the unexpected.
White Lips Too 2 Glitz Too Glitz Womens Too Some people believe that techno is an excess of clarity, an endlessly repeating, crystal clear, foreseeable loop of booming bass and treble. Rabih Beaini is the living antithesis of this idea. With every tabla beat, every dissonance and every audacious rhythm in his tracks and DJ sets, with every fibre of his being, Beaini is the opposite of predictable.
ALSO are considered with a playful way of non-linear improvisation that not only allows hard cuts, abrupt dynamic and atmospheric breaks, but almost forces them. The Viennese Martin Siewert and Berliner-by-choice Katharina Ernst improvise with contrary material without restrictions...

Science says ‘analyse it’; art says ‘smash it’. At the A L'ARME! Festival, things can certainly get a bit militant when it comes to smashing an entity into its individual components and gluing these shards back together. Massimo Pupillo, Stefano Pilia, and Lillevan...

Here comes a beautiful inside of A L’ARME! Vol. V from director Tumi Valdimarsson from dBs Film Berlin.
Contrary, defiant, disobedient. Bill Laswell likes resistance, but that doesn’t mean he defines his music based on what he is against. Given his openness to an immense variety of influences (and a good portion of stubbornness), he played a constructive role in the electrifying chaos of the New York scene at the end of the 70s and beginning of the 80s.
Philm forges music that bursts forth with unexpected intensity and consequence. Through the band’s insistently sharp, cutting agitation, the music comes more into focus, reaching into the essence, the core, through a process that, with passionate urgency, opens up that core for all to hear.
Too Lips Womens Too 2 Glitz Too Glitz White Listening to Von Hausswolff involves every aspect of the human organism: from the skin to the bowels all the way to the hidden layers of the soul.

Paal Nilssen-Love belongs to the A L’ARME!-core artists since 2012. In the ears of the Norwegian drummer, Brazil stands out as a country that shares his ideals of music being a celebration of life – a celebration that should be loud, rhythmic and intense.
Self-description: “Concerned with family matters and with serving beers in a pub. Not much time for the sound art scene up to now. Technical requirements: two free inputs on a mixer; I bring my own cables.”
Polyphony driven to the edge of collapse. British producer Klein increasingly pushes her songs, which initially played with fragments of contemporary R & B, in the direction of excess. Her sound is one of cacophony and polyvalence, of crashing opposites into one another as an act of sonic resistance.
“Earth, Wind and Fire” is a band name already taken, but still accurate in describing the three members of ROLFSSON/LÉANDRE/HARNIK. Like elements coexisting on stage, music somehow begins and shapes. They all have met in music before, but never as a Trio.
