Die B-Seite schlägt ab 2018 neue Wege ein und geht biennal. Weil die Festivalmacher dem Publikum aber auch in den Zwischenjahren eine ordentliche Portion internationaler Top-A/V-Performances auf Augen und Ohren geben wollen, organisieren sie im Gegenrhythmus kleine Feste für die Sinne im Zeichen optischer Reize und scharfer Tempokurven: die microB. Auf keinen Fall verpassen! Denn es wird unvergesslich werden. B-lieve it.

AudeRrose is multi-disciplinary artist living Berlin, working with performance, photography, sound and live video. She regularly presents her video performances in international festivals.
Her imagery plays with narrative structures, developing dreamy and intimate universes, exploring various forms of interplay between body, images in motion, deconstructive narrations and self-mythology. Her performances articulate live scenography protocols integrating video as an environment medium, often using real-time camera feedback, considering the black box as a possible oneiric space, where sounds and images communicate in a poetic and narrative journey.
Her work oscillates between digital and analogue medium, combining original cross-border techniques between real-time video feedback and digital and acoustic sounds. She often uses overhead projectors, dia projectors, typewriters, clocks, that are amplified via micro-contact microphones, combined with acoustic and digital sounds.
She uses live cameras and pre-recorded video samples, sometimes combined with programing language such as pure data, seeking to develop a closer interaction between video and sound events. Fascinated by archaic imagery and mechanical objects, she also creates costumes and scenography, seeking to immerse the audience in a dream box, using her figure as a “persona” reenacting a forgotten memories inside a poetic journey.

Myriam Bleau, Soft Revolvers is an audiovisual performance for 4 spinning tops built with clear acrylic by the artist. Each top is associated with an ‘instrument’ in an electronic music composition and the motion data collected by sensors – placed inside the tops – informs musical algorithms. With their large circular spinning bodies and their role as music playing devices, the interfaces strongly evoke turntables and DJ culture, hip hop and dance music. LEDs placed inside the tops illuminate the body of the objects in a precise counterpoint to the music, creating stunning spinning halos.

Describing Orson Hentschel only as a composer of contemporary music does not do him justice. In his self-conception as an audio-visual artist he creates his own live show, combining lights, visuals and fog to a stunning atmosphere, which cannot be eluded. Supported by live-drummer Lukas Baumgart, Hentschel delivers a sound, whose energy is physically palpable and electrifies the audience. A live-show generating an intense experience, going to the limit and erasing any sense of time. Orson Hentschel moves perceptions not merely through sheer volume, but with driving repetitions and extensive tension.
