    With renewed vigor, Extratonal Infrastructure returns with a fresh program for 2024 that continues to stretch musical paradigms. This year we welcome several new extratonal members and sponsors. Hello, Fonds Podiumkunsten, Gemeente Rotterdam, Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie and Popunie Rotterdam! Together we will develop radical extratonal strategies to shake up the musical landscape of Charlois and beyond. During our first event of 2024 we won't reveal all of our plans just yet, but rest assured: we will demonstrate the latest extratonal trends. Whether that happens with clarinet, drums, saxophone or rain, beautiful things await us!

    Vida Vojić aka vida voyage, is a music artist, percussionist, musician, writer, performance artist and curator from Gothenburg, Sweden. Her current performance work focuses on drumming as a means of amplifying input, triggering physical vibration and awakening alternate states. This accompanies her vocal, scenographic and poetic output that draw upon her research into comparative theology, music as magic, alternative conceptions of time and the nature of change.


    Laura Agnusdei is an electroacoustic composer and saxophone player from Bologna (IT). Classically trained, she also holds a Master in electronic music composition from The Institute of Sonology of The Hague (NL). Her compositions feature the saxophone as the main voice within sonic landscapes that shift between melodies and textures, the song form and improvisation, fusing acoustic, digital and analog sound sources.


    Bernat Sanjuan is an interdisciplinary-trained clarinettist based in Rotterdam, with a dedicated focus on exploring extended techniques and new sounds within the bass clarinet, clarinet and other non-conventional instruments. Originally from Valencia, he studied at the University of Arts Codarts obtaining a Bachelor of Music. His latest research engages with the connection between instrumental sound, the human body, the instrument and the movement and the dynamic interplay that these elements have within the phenomenon of instrumental sound production.

    Hollowmist is an ambient/noise self-project, a terrible self-narration. Using ambient as the starting point, it expands into a noise wall with fragmented nonsense samples. Unlike infinite high-temperature harsh noise, Hollowmist strictly adheres to the proportion of ingredients: 45% light matte aluminum alloy frame, 21% rubber conveyor belt, 12% bamboo, 10% sugar, 7% coarse salt, 5% leaves, 0% walnut.


    This event is made possible with the kind support of Popunie Rotterdam, Fonds Podiumkunsten, Gemeente Rotterdam and Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie.
