Mad Kate | the Tide are a post punk conceptual performance project with Jacopo Bertacco (Tide of Sound) on guitar, loops, electronics, Kathryn Fischer aka Mad Kate on vocals, poetry, contact mics and performance and Sara Neidorf on drums.

This performance celebrates the release of their double single “Generate Content / This is the Hand”.

Their 2020 EP This Morning Waking about was about genderbased violence and they are now finishing their LP sexWORKperformanceART about the relationship between labour, art and the body. Their Discography also includes ALIVE:ness (LP/eBook 2014), Combinatorics (EP/eBook 2013), will be ready – the Teufelsberg session – (LP Freudian Slit Records 2013) and Leather Jacket (Single/remix 2012)

Composed in dialogue with conceptual explorations and texts, Mad Kate | the Tide’s dynamic sonicscapes mix punk, acoustic folk, psychedelic rock and spoken word. They form the backbone for honest, sometimes darkly provocative performance art and movement which provokes and stirs its audiences.

In their multimedia work ALIVE:ness they ask: To what extent are we alive in each other’s lives —physically, emotionally, electronically, living or dead — taking into account our contemporary context of virtual interaction, shape-shifting and polyphysical interpretations of our own identities? What does it mean to be present when the terms of our own existence are relative to how we interact physically and virtually with those most close to us? What does it mean to queer our identity in a global context in order to be more effective activists and global citizens?

SPITPLAY are a new Berlin post-wave noise duo, Godzilla meets Eurythmics. Their music features: a relentlessly straight 90’s drum machine, a distorted mantra-monotone bass, synthwave and noise sprinkles and vocal acrobatics oscillating between dreampop sweetness and Diamanda Galas performance. A flowery neologism for a feuilleton drawer would probably be Alien Goth Pop.
