    The question of extronality concerns not only 'how', but also 'where'. With both eyes open, this extratonal event will focus on acoustic tools to locate sonic oddities and performative gestures, from endoscope cameras to satellite receivers.

    Christof Migone is an artist, teacher, curator, and writer, who works with language, voice, bodies, performance, intimacy, complicity, and endurance. He co-edited the anthologies Writing Aloud: The Sonics of Language (Errant Bodies Press, 2001) and Volumes (Blackwood Gallery, 2015) and obtained an MFA from NSCAD in 1996 and a PhD from the Department of Performance Studies at the Tisch School of the Arts of New York University in 2007. At Varia he will perform a new version of his piece 'The Release In Motion', using a video synth, an endoscope camera, and various audio devices, as well as doing some performative gestures with frozen tomatoes.


    Matthias Hurtl (MTHS) will showcase Drowning in Æther, a project focusing on the audibility of satellite signals, electromagnetism, and telecommunication networks through a practice-based approach. It aims to delve into the narratives of the invisible signals around us, highlighting the expansive, systemic, and geological attributes of the Technosphere. It is an archive, a collection of sounds and recordings, images, as well as found footage, debris, and artifacts. For Extratonal Infrastructure Matthias will drown with a 'signal hunting' performance.


    The Postpeople are a band born in Rotterdam in 2016. They work primarily with writing, reading, and communication. Through various sonic and performance strategies they distribute a single deconstructed creative process across two bodies and a range of technologies.
