Progress Bar on 21 January

Wednesday 7 December 14:20

Progress Bar offers insight into the artistic practice of the most exciting contemporary artists with interviews and lectures as well as a club programme. Before Sonic Acts Festival 2017 begins, the next edition of Progress Bar will be on Saturday 21 January at Paradiso Noord, Tolhuistuin. LINE UP AKWUGO EMEJULU (talk) BONAVENTURE (DJ) EMBACI (live) J. G. BIBERKOPF (live) JUHA (DJ) S A R A S A R A (live) SEADA NOURHUSSEN (talk) TRAXMAN (DJ) AKWUGO EMEJULU (talk) Akwugo Emejulu is Senior Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh. As a political sociologist, she has research interests in two areas: investigating racial and gender social and economic inequalities in a comparative perspective and exploring the grassroots organising of women of colour for social welfare and social citizenship. BONAVENTURE (DJ) NTS Radio affiliate and citizen of NON, Bonaventure (Soraya Lutangu) uses music as an identity research tool along with practical and speculative initiatives to connect her African and European roots and investigate human boundaries. Tracks like ‘White Policy’, ‘Cauz Cauz Cauz’ and ‘Complexion’ get at the crux of human motivation. EMBACI Embaci is an 18-year-old singer-songwriter and producer from Brooklyn who interweaves her lilting voice’s commentary on body and feminist politics with shattered, metallic off-rhythms. Her recent “digital tape” release featured collaborations with the likes of ANGEL-HO, Chino Amobi, Mhysa, Nkisi, LAO, ZutZut, IMAABS and Elysia Crampton. J. G. BIBERKOPF (live) J. G. Biberkopf works within the paradoxical relationship between club music and art music. His recent first EP, titled ‘Ecologies’, launched the Knives label created by Kuedo and Joe Shakespeare. Biberkopf’s music is intended as a field trip into the representations of nature that emerge from the (social) mediascape. JUHA (DJ) Progress Bar founder Juha plays new internet dance music. Since 2014, Juha has been artistic director of Lighthouse in Brighton, uniting the worlds of culture and technology. As of 2016, Juha presents Viral Radio on ResonanceEXTRA, a monthly two-hour programme following new developments deep down the rabbit hole of internet music culture. S A R A S A R A (live) Hailing from Lille, France, singer, musician and producer s a r a s a r a recently released her debut album ‘Amor Fati' via One Little Indian, co-produced by Matthew Herbert. Already a boundary pushing artist, s a r a s a r a’s music is as experimental as it is versatile, taking in elements of industrial electronica, trip-hop, r’n’b, breaks and more. SEADA NOURHUSSEN (talk) Seada Nourhussen is Africa-editor at Trouw. She has previously worked for, amongst others, Elsevier and De Volkskrant. Nourhussen also wrote the book 'Bloedmobieltjes'. TRAXMAN (DJ) Cornelius Ferguson a.k.a. Traxman is from the West Side of Chicago and one of the longest serving producers working in footwork with releases stretching back to the glory days of ghetto house on Dance Mania records in the nineties. His unique brand of footwork is very strongly rooted in Chicago's history of soul, funk, house and ghetto trax.
