About this Event

Boundary Condition engulfs the collective mass longing for a past that never was, through studies in its sonic materialization stretching across the hyper-romantic limbo of post-Lynchian Darkjazz, the flickering scenarios and found sounds of Musique Concrète, and inert cyclicality of hauntological loops, projecting the residue of all that which could have been, as prosthetic sentiments. Via post instrument instrumentals, permutated compositions, site responsivity, missing fundamentals, severe interdependence, and retrograding structures

Carlos Casas

Carlos Casas (b. 1974, Barcelona, Spain) is a filmmaker and artist whose practice encompasses film, sound and the visual arts. His films have been screened and awarded in festivals around the world, like the Venice Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Buenos Aires International Film Festival, Mexico International Film Festival, FID Marseille, etc... his work has been exhibited and performed in international art institutions and galleries, such as Tate Modern, London, Fondation Cartier, Palais de Tokyo, Centre Pompidou, Paris, Hangar Bicocca, Milan, CCCB Barcelona, GAM Torino, Bozar Bruxelles, among others. Cemetery his latest project on production is a take on the myth of the elephant cemetery. He was creative director of Colors Music and Films from 2005-2008 where he developed audiovisual projects and music research in various regions around the world.

Cameron Naylor

Cameron Naylor is a sound artist creating on the boundary of electroacoustic composition and audiovisual art. From synthesising sound worlds with data sonification to creating procedural graphics and geo-locative augmented reality dramas, to utilising generative composition, Cameron’s innovative viewpoint has allowed him to work consistently for both local and international organisations. -


Howlround is a quintet (four slightly battered machines machines, one slightly battered operator in the shape of sound artist Robin The Fog) that create recordings and performances entirely from manipulating natural acoustic sounds on vintage reel-to-reel tape machines, with all additional effects or artificial reverb strictly forbidden. Howlround’s live events are always a spectacle in which haunting and uncanny soundscapes are created – part sound design, part chaotic performance art. Their records have been compared to William Basinski (who I toured with in 2015), Burial and Selected Ambient Works-era Aphex Twin. Robin produces sound designs for several BBC Radio 4 dramas, broadcast packages for Radio 4 and BBC World Service, as well as contributions to Radio 3’s Between The Ears, ABC Australia, NTS, and many more.

Fung Neo & Laborante - Tiananmen Cyclists act

Interlocking in loops of a broken mechanism crashed bicycles are fighting a futurist war of broken spines, choked chains, twisted limbs and corroded mesh. lunatic ride of the performers is composed of crashed insects’ failed repetition or gestures of futile frictionless violence

~ ‘Cyclists’ is a choreography of futurist installation of objects animated by human performers who become dehumanised by passive violence of things. Damaged and corroded metal frames of bicycles are pulled by ropes and chains across the rough concrete space, projecting different vectors across the audience what disturbs the position of spectator and shifts the attention within the space. textures and materials create noise and ambience. Performers attempt to ride on the bicycle in different stages of its destruction by collapsing on it, sliding flat on the floor, pressing themselves onto the floor by it as well as marking lunatic gestures of failed machine operation. Choreography consists of imaginings of post-mortem animal locomotion of crashed insects.

Infinite Monkeys

Infinite Monkeys Theorem states that monkeys with projectors, synthesizers and an infinite amount of time could produce an AV version of "Selected Music From Washing Machines 85-92“. This theorem was tried in real life, but only for a month. The seven monkeys involved produced 9 minutes of cow sounds, slammed projectors and synthesizers with a stone and ate 21kg of bananas. Infinite Monkeys will try the theorem again live at IKLECTIK. The Monkeys performing on the show will be available for adoption, please adopt a Monkey, and bring one to your home after the show.


Cerpintxt is an electroacoustic and darkjazz post-ape progress report from the cosmic madhouse, through the medium of voice, auto-destruction, wind-guided experiments in protoconversation. Her work is concerned with generating an invented language of a particular strain of softness through phonetic entropy and augmented instrumentation. The textural counterparts of her sound rely on broken turntablism, prepared zither, & seismic microphones, processed through tape recorders.

Ruben Sonnoli

Ruben is an Italian key and synth performer, trained as a jazz pianist but fascinated by electronic music, he combines harmonic and melodic material with electronic processing and samples

Fung Neo

Fung Neo is philosopher of biomedia and body performer animating Chronic Illness event at its squatted sewage in North London since 2015.


Laboranta is a core member of Judgement Hall, Boundary Condition, Chronic Illness squat and GATE collective - where she contributes sound & performances. She has previously hosted the collectives at her underground venue A12 Lab in East London. Her sonic project, Marina, is deeply rooted in explorations of various subcultures animating London's plurimedial habitats. The curation of her sets is infused with heavy experimental flavours encouraging the deepening of inner dialogues by transporting the listener onto a symbolically symbiotic journey via the intermitent reinforcement train.
