Robert Machiri is a DJ and hoarder of things, inspired by his music collection and interest in sound-related objects. His work exists at the interface of two streams of practice; his curatorial concepts and a multidisciplinary production of artworks that draw on decolonial discourses that are presented through embodied critique, learning and unlearning, interweaving sound, music and image-making.

tracy september is a South African musician, performer and music researcher based in Zürich. She works around themes of memory, spirit and protest, with a particular passion for improvisation. For tracy improvisation is a way to surrender attachment and trust the capacity of one’s intuition. It is an invitation to let go. tracy uses her voice, electronics, texts, archive materials and field recordings, to tell stories that are deeply rooted in ritual, community and communion.
