Live performance by Nikka (Barcelona/Spain)
The most natural thing for Nikka is being among machines: she plays and experiments with them with such familiarity and confidence that she seems to have been born to do it. She is reflected in them like a mirror, and gives her audience a complex melange of sounds, rhythms and feelings that are apparently melancholy, but which have a strong personality. In her live show, she will be collaborating with Alba G. Corral on visuals.

New work by composer, sound-artist and saxophonist Dror Feiler.
Dror Elimelech Feiler (Hebrew: דרור אלימלך פיילר; born 31 August 1951, Tel Aviv, Israel) is a Swedish–Israeli musician and artist. He has been living in Stockholm, Sweden since 1973. He is married to the artist Gunilla Sköld-Feiler.
Feiler studied new music and its interpretation at the Fylkingen Institut for New Music from 1975 to 1977, musicology at Stockholm University from 1977 to 1978 and composition at the Music Academy of Stockholm from 1978 to 1983.
Feiler’s father worked on a kibbutz and met a group of Palestinians in Bucharest in 1986 while it was still illegal and he was also sentenced to prison for it. His 80-year-old mother works with mobile health centrals in Palestinian villages in the West Bank that have no other access to health-care and other services.
He is active as a composer of modern music, which includes composition music for symphonic orchestras, opera, chamber music and electro-acoustic music. In April 2008, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra dropped the world premiere of his composition Halat Hisar (State of Siege), after musicians complained that the music, which includes machine gun sounds, was so loud that it gave them ear problems and headaches.
