Hieroglyphic Being
The Bunker bunch teams up with the Polish festival for the third year running, with 2012 boasting its strongest lineup yet. Robert "Monolake" Henke will be doling out space-time-continuum–rupturing sounds and rhythms culled from his latest release, Ghosts, in a surround-sound performance; Demdike Stare's Sean Canty and Miles Whittaker make music that's been described as "pagan digi-dub," which pretty much nails it; and Chicago's Hieroglyphic Being works the avant-garde edges of Chicago house. And there's lots more too, with electronic-music rebels Laurel Halo, Ital (fresh off the release of his fine Hive Mind LP) and Zemi17 all playing as well. Do not miss this.
