In these difficult COVID-19 times, independant artists like me, are struggling.

Everything got cancelled (shows, tours, exhibitions, residencies, studio work...).
With no help from the institutions and no way to perform at public events, we won't last long...

Massolit Books & Café is a fusion of a café and bookstore on Nagy Diófa Street, in the heart of the Jewish Quarter. The name of the culture café is not borrowed from a type of rock: it is a pun from the English translation of The Master and Margarita (“literature for the masses”). The foreign-language bookstore sells new and used books in subjects that are difficult to find in Eastern Europe, plus literature, albums, and reference books. 1072 Budapest, Nagy Diófa utca 30.

Ernő Zoltán Rubik is a pianist, improviser and composer. In his music he explores the division between audience and performer, improvisation and composition, live and recorded material. He works in theater and dance projects (Krétakör, The Symptoms, Research Into the Unknown grant) which challenge him both as a musician and as a physical performer. He has performed as a dancer (Collective Comipoq) and is also a versatile beat boxer and vocalist. He plays improvised music and free jazz with his groups rubik.erno.quintet and trio:beeper. Since 2011 he curates the weekly improvised music series called JAZZAJ. He has studied composition at Liszt Ferenc Music Academy, Budapest.

Áron Porteleki grew up in the hungarian „Táncház” (dance-house) movement in Budapest. . As a child he learned the three-stringed viola from Transylvanian and Hungarian musicians and took jazz lessons on drums. In the past 8-10 years he took part in several music groups, from improvised jazz to pop-rock and became a professional recording and performing artist mostly on his drums, but being part of the folk music era as well. Now his main interests focused on connecting the different types of improvisations found in folk music and jazz, and to transform the experiences on his viola into new rhythmic structures on drums. – soundcloud.com/portelekiaron

Cello player. Cellist. Cello is the diminutive suffix of the word violoncello. Violone means double bass, what belongs to the family of the Viola de gambas; the cello though, is descendant of the Violin family. Endre Kertész is a musician. A classical one. His partner in crime is an Austrian instrument from 1828. They can be seen at concert halls, theatres, clubs and on the streets or on the internet as well. They’re silent most of the time, but sometimes they make sounds – both of them in their own way. “Sometimes it works. Other times it doesn’t.”

Bálint Bolcsó (born 1979) studied instrumental and electroacoustic composition in Budapest and Vienna. He was a regular participant of the International Bartók Seminar in Szombathely, Hungary. His compositions were performed at Bartók Festival, Budapest Autumn Festival, Making New Waves, Wien Modern, mise-en music festival (New York) and CAFe Budapest, among others. He writes vocal, instrumental and electroacoustic pieces, radio plays, sound installations as well as applied music for film, dance and theatre. He is involved with electroacoustic music and live electronics as composer, improviser and university lecturer. Recent improvised music settings include rubik.erno.quintet, trio:beeper and duos with Christian Kobi, Jonas Kocher, Zsolt Sőrés, Gergely Kovács and Gergő Kováts. – bolcso.net/en/news

Groups: duo with Jean-Hervé Péron Art-Errorist (from the legendary krautrock band Faust), Ahad & ChrS (with Christian Skjødt), collaborations with Franz Hautzinger, Julo Fujak and Isabelle Duthoit, I Belong to the Band (with Adam Bohman, Oli Mayne and Jean-Michel Van Schouwburg), trio with Richard Barrett and Milana Zarić, duo with Christian Kobi etc. His field of interest and activity – beside music – includes the borderline and the margin of different art forms, too. Sőrés is also collaborate with artists from different fields of art (choreographers, stage directors, fine artists, videomakers, phonic poets). In 2012 he was the Hungarian curator of the international ”Sound Exchange – Experimental Music Cultures in Central and Eastern Europe” project. In 2014 Sőrés curated the first collective international sound installation exhibition in Hungary called ”On the Edge of Perceptibility – Sound Art” at Kunsthalle, Budapest. In 2008 he edited a book and wrote a preface study about ”New Chances of Autonomy” with the texts by Hakim Bey aka Peter Lamborn Wilson among other onthological anarchists. He is currently working with Inconsolable Ghost on the soundtrack to the new version of Andrey Iskanov’s hallucinogenic horror classic ”Visions of Suffering”. – www.mixcloud.com/ahad/inaplo.hu/ahadahadmaster.blogspot.com/www.youtube.com/user/MrAhad69soundcloud.com/ahad

TRAFÓ ELECTRIFY SERIES Vol. 7. // Modeo feat. J3ZZ
Opening act for BEN FROST (IS), VESSEL (UK)
18 April 2015, Trafó Budapest

MODEO Dreaming of apocalyptic sci-fi dystopia, Modeo’s hypnotic vision is an abstract space journey across distorted dimensions of the asymmetric techno universe. Incorporating murky audio collages and tribal polyrhythms, his textured, cinematic sound is in pursuit of balance and contrast at the same time. His experimental musical voyage led him to collaborate with artists of various related creative fields as well as the art community Technologie und das Unheimliche. His special live show will be a one-off collaborative effort with Jérôme Li-Thiao-Té (J3ZZ) on violin and Erika Tankó's (Maladype Színház) performance. Visuals by Tamás Herczeg (Bios).

Presented by Trafó, ELECTRIFY is a contemporary electronic music series with a focus on adventurous sound and stimulus for memorable sonic experience. Featuring established and emerging artists the diverse line-up aims to push boundaries for challenging exploration of new musical dimensions.
