    The 13th edition of Extratonal Infrastructure will focus on the concept of exaltation. In our understanding music can be a means to elevate spirits to a higher level. In May, the platform for extratonality invites a number of artists to varia who have dedicated themself to this cause through dynamic rhythms, decontextualized juxtapositions, spontaious improvisation and unified chaos.

    Meet Nene Moné (CL), a non-binary and multi-instrumentalist artist from Valparaíso, Chile! Experience a fusion of traditional and contemporary sounds rooted in Latin American rhythms. 🎶 Beyond music, Nene Moné is a force for social and environmental justice, using their live set for powerful storytelling and sonic landscape 🌍✊ Together with VJ Varvara, they will create an unforgettable atmosphere. Come for a unique blend of cultural influences and dynamic rhythms! 🎤🌈


    Manu Louis (BE) is a Belgium born/Berlin based singer and knob agitator that studied composition with legendary composer Fréderic Rzewski. In his music style doesn’t exist as he creates new adventures of provocative and decontextualized juxtapositions; from dissident chanson française, genial dilettante, avant-garde composers, new beat, old hits to art-pop & hard bop.


    Yannis Patoukas (GR) and Nicolás Kliwadenko (CL) are active as composers and improvisers. Both artists emphasise spontaneity and improvisation in their work, utilising technology and creative compositional processes in and out of the recording studio. They perform regularly with the Sonology Electroacoustic Ensemble (SEE).


    Brandnetel (RTD) started in 2021 following an encounter at the DHZ fietswerkplaats. In their improvisations, which include mouth harp and a healthy dose of screamo, philosophy and music meld together. Noise and melody unite in a chaotic, mysterious and emotional whole.


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