WILD EmbeddingS presents ANTI-THERAPY at an all ages / dry venue
Juanjose Rivas (Mexico City) Visual/sound artist specialized in electronic media; he employs different techniques in order to make a speech from the translation, error, obstruction, and the interference inside artistic languages. He tries to define the impossible, to reveal the hidden, to articulate the unspeakable, and to evidence the truth as an instituted lie. These are some of the conceptual approaches he uses in his work. www.juanjoserivas.info
DR KONTRA (Mexico City) Visual/sound artist who integrates various languages (video, audio, installation and performance) to construct his platforms for experimentation. His practice revolves around human conduct as territory where fears, projections and instincts all manifest and occupy, distorting the notion of what is “real”, immediately subverting the signals of anything considered to be socially correct: comfort, excitement, money, consumption, power, order, etc. His interventions seek to generate a metaphysical experience that activates primitive instincts and emotions through expanded performance and sound mutation. http://drkontra.org/
COMPACTOR (NYC) An interconnected set of mostly obsolete machinery that is manipulated by an anonymous worker under orders from the Waste MGT corporation. Fragments of Industrial, Noise, Hardcore Techno, Glitch, and others are crushed into soundtracks to the daily grind and the landscape of waste we live and work in. Each live shift is different from the others, though some sounds may be recycled. http://www.wastemgt.info/
Spreaders (NY) Spreaders is a performance artist and noise musician who experiments with synthesizers and tape cassettes, in addition to playing the drums and guitar. https://youtu.be/wiD5wqVu6kc

ONISM (NYC) A multi-disciplinary art endeavor concepted by Starlight Romero and Victoria Niu. ONISM coalesces noise music with erotic performance art to sporulate oral communication around the subject of sex and relationships. During adolescence – Romero developing in conservative, close-minded suburbia; Niu growing up with traditional Chinese values – sex was commonly experienced, but never explored. Now based in East Village, New York, NY, ONISM has elevated to promote free-flowing, open conversations about how we view and treat sex and relationships, placing emphasis on developing healthy sexual/romantic relationships. www.soundofonism.tumblr.com
