20:00 | SOUND ANTICANON
A live electronic deconstruction of selected works of Czech music from the last century. Loosely inspired by the Kánon100 survey made by Czech Radio Vltava. A collage of samples, melodies, moments. The electronic goulash was cooked up by Jan Faix (Skrytý půvab barokracie, Stratocluster) and Cyril Kaplan (Vložte kočku).
