Thomas Meinecke + Move D
Tuesday, 5. November - 2:55 pm

Thomas Meinecke and Move D dismantle text and music with language, constructing a new soundtrack of poetry. DJ culture and discourse combine when these two artists perform their audio works in clubs (often subsequently getting behind the turntables themselves). They will present a modified excerpt from their piece "Freud's Baby".
