Freqs of Nature Festival 2016

Freqs of Nature Festival 2016

7-12 July 2016 - Germany - 14913 Niedergörsdorf

FreqsOfNature2016WebFlyerAs in the past years we want to thank all our amazing guests, crew, artists & the local community of Niedergörsdorf. Only with all of you we are able to keep developing the festival and follow our vision of how our festival should be.

The build up, the festival itself and everything around has been extremely harmonic and a pleasure for us! We could not wish for a better crowd & crew than the one from this year! Thank you, we love you all!
We are aware that the attempt of pushing boundaries with art has it risks and we know that not everybody likes where we are heading, but we deeply believe in our path and we are following and evolving it. We are in need of constant change and evolution of our concept and we don´t want to recycle our proven ideas over and over again. We are looking for art that is beautiful and thought provoking and not for art forms that are just pleasing to the mass so we are happy about extreme reactions and we are ready to process them.
We are very pleased with the content and infrastructure of this year, but of-course we are also aware of many things to improve and we are already working on doing it better next time. Our heads and hearts are even as we are tired now full of new ideas and visions for the years to come, to redefine and progress Freqs of Nature as an peculiar Art, Music and Engineering Festival.

Music

Forest Floor

Concept

The Forest-Floor is our melting pot for the deeply psychedelic and experimental music. Multi-layered sound arrangements and driving grooves are selected to let you dive deep in to your own imagination and let go of your daily routine by reaching a trance-state through constant movement and complex sound experiments.

A carefully chosen selection of some of the finest “psychedelic, efficient dance music” with a tendency to twist your reality and change your perspective of the already known.

Relaxperimental

Concept

Our Rela(x)pedimental Floor is maturing in it´s style. Going more experimental we managed to invite a fine selection of IDM and avant-garde artists who will present relaxed, yet tasteful weird electronica. We are not trying to create your typical “chill-out” but an environment for styles that are not purely for dancing purposes and boldly explore the boarders of to us known electronic music.

Featured Artists

Robert Steven Connett

Robert Steven Connett is a California artist who takes his current inspiration from biological forms — both flora and fauna, micro and macro, land and ocean dwelling — from which he generates new variations, as though he were painting with recombinant DNA. He is a masterful painter of other-worldly creatures harmoniously swimming along in complex dreamscapes. Intricate geometric patterns make up each new species, meticulously painted with illuminated detail.

CT Nelson

CT Nelsonʼs paintings do not fit into one artistic movement. His approach draws from many and has developed into a unique style that is completely his own. A captivating contrast of urban linear illustrative street aesthetics within fragmented Americana and Neoclassical narratives encourages further investigation of complex, emotional contemplation. Employing an exceptional awareness of light and color, Ct creates an opportunity to delve deeper into phantasmagorical landscapes where the initial discomforts and distortions of the grotesque transform into genuine intellectual curiosities

Luminokaya

Art-project Luminokaya lab. appeared as a result of a huge amount of data coming from the great field of energy and information in forms of light and energy waves, visions, images, dream-state objects, trans personal visions and visions beyond personality, and also symbols, signs and channeling. The vast amount of information offered by The Space didn’t allow to ignore this exciting and rich experience. My input was minimized to pressing the keyboard keys, and the awareness of infinity and abundance of the info-energy continuum can let me speak only about being a channel, or a medium. So, there can’t be any question of authorship.Let this art-information be a little contribution to the process of uniting people of light and realizing ourlight-carrying potential!

For the benefit of all beings.

Manú Menéndez

The Art of Manú Menéndez is inspired by the ancient cultures of the world. Shamanism, Eastern mysticism, sacred art, daydreams, Universal love, the Course in Miracles and the knowledge of native groups and their cosmogonies, are some of the pillars of great inspiration of his work which has been applied magically in the art of illustration, design and visual arts.

Alexander Rodin (Ales Rodzin)

Alexander Rodin (Ales Rodzin) is one of the renowned contemporary Belarusian artists.

He is both a representative of neo-avant-garde and figurative painting school. Rodin’s works amaze by the immense volume of the laborious manual process – literally every inch of canvas is scrupulously refined. Taking into account the sizes of Alexander Rodin’s paintings, which sometimes reach three or even four meters, this meticulous technique can be truly considered as an astonishing feat. Although it is in some ways surprising, since neo-avant-garde movement historically holds the certain distrust of anything that is connected with the craftsmanship of artist.

Patrice Pit Hubert – Kinetic Sculptures

Self-taught sculptor born in Rennes (1966) France

Resembling dangerously unsettling organic shapes such as elongated insects or birds, French self-taught artist patrice Hubert creates stunning kinetic sculptures, bent on containing the cosmos with his formed metal work.

All of the pieces contain rotating or moving parts and light, adding an interesting dimension to the elegant pieces.

As testaments to the ever -evolving marriage of nature and machine, the work also speaks to the fantastical fiction of future science, and its seemingly limitless possibilities.

In Freqs of Nature, Patrice with his creations, will be one of the main fundaments of the art and deco concept. His work will be featured on all dance-floors, in the art-gallery and around the venue.

Tenia

Alex Tenia (tapeworm) was born in 1983. Attracted by visual arts since his childhood . Tenia early writing works used refined fonts seeking harmony between colors and shapes. Later on he began to add figurative in his compositions, searching his own way for expressing and channeling more concepts and ideas, still maintaining the expressive and disruptive power of the aerosolart. His personal artistic format has been enriched by meeting other artists during his tireless travel wherever there was a possibility to express himself: Social Centre, Institutional events or Commissioned works.

In 2006 together with other artists he founded the Disegni Matti group, publishing a fanzine with the same name and organizing exhibitions around Italy and Switzerland.

Tenia expressive techniques include the use of sprays and brushes, batique , bogolon, bodyart, bodypainting and tattoo.. He also realised scenography and costumes in various events from the Venice Carnival to underground events such as rave concerts.

From 2010 Tenia began his collaboration with the Milano based “Volks Writerz” crew that put social issues at the core of their artistic project.

Awer Art

The works of Awer, that some have described as hypnotic graffiti, introduce us to new possible worlds, various animals of land and sea, mythological characters and mesmerizing creatures that result from white or vibrantly colored spirals and fluid lines. Aiming to distract people from the boredom of their lifestyle and everyday activities, he offers an oneiric escape of the mind from all its troubles and obstacles, as an artistic remedy and alternative to the known reality. There are a lot of optical illusions in the murals and artworks of AweR, who currently lives and works between Italy and Berlin, and we also notice a strong connection with a higher universal power that every viewer is invited to interpret in a personal way, according to his own vision and understanding.
