For CTM and Transmediale Vorspiel 2017, XenoEntities Network (XEN) invites producer Born in Flamez and the Thalamus Collective to contribute towards the ever pertinent topic of gender and sexuality within the electronic music scene.
Born in Flamez is a transhuman experiment that came to life in 2013. Shirking notions of identity, s/he subverts gender and genre with a panoply of influences somewhere in the nether regions between grime, industrial pop, and future electronics.
Questioning the way we are conditioned to perceive experiences, THALAMUS rejects definitive conclusions, concentrating instead on the infinite possibilities a single formula enables. They orchestrate site-specific events, engaging artists from different fields in collaborative sound experiments, with a focus on finding ways to include the audience as an integral part of the experience. THALAMUS Collective is politically engaged as postgender. Their statement of intent elucidates how they hope to create safer and unbiased spaces for (gender) expression of any kind.
