Crew

Martux_m Crew was born in 2010 as a stable working group formed by: Martux_m, Kocleo & Lanvideosource. They built up their studio in Brancaleone Club creating a dynamic factory with all the creative activities of this multifunctional structure that is known worldwide as one of the most innovative italian organization, since 1990.

Martux_m Crew present a thrilling live across Techno, Jazz and IDM.

“In Beat-Ween Zone” live set can be recognized also for the refined cure dedicated to the visuals by Lanvideosource. Martux_m and Kocleo wisely play their rousing tracks with a hot and sensual sound, inspired by the black music.

Martux_m Crew was sharing the stage with some of the most popular artists of the international club culture as: Trentemoller, Ellen Allien, Apparat, Andy Cato, Carl Craig, The Hacker, Arto Lindsay.

Martux defines “In Beat-ween Zone” as ”an attempt to accept the fact that the body has an e-motive intelligence of its own. The sound connected to the body produces a complex soundscape, in which the body absorbs the sound in the process.” Martux says that the matter is “to act into the flow”.

Kocleo

Kocleo

Kocleo began to deal with decks, needles and mixers when he was just 13, learning the tricks of djing by his brother on vinyls of Kraftwerk, Afrika Bambaataa, Public Enemy, Run DMC, Juan Atkins, Jeff Mills, Depeche Mode, Soft Cell. He kept on mixing and scratching at beach parties and events until 2000, when he was awarded as Best DJ in the Nottalba contest by Francesco Zappalà (2nd place in DMC World 1990) and Krisma (ex New Dada). He moved to Rome in 2001 in order to expand and explore his passion, and he started to create his own tracks. His dj-sets are extremely wavy and multicoloured: a mix of electronica, funk and techno.

Kocleo attended the Italian Institute of Technologies applied to Music, obtaining the degree of Sound Engineer. He works for many communications agencies, creating music for TV commercials, like the one he made for the Italian Cultural Heritage Ministry during the European Days of Heritage.

Currently he is part of Martux_M CREW, a project conceived and created by Maurizio Martusciello, one of the most important artists of electronic music experimentation in Italy.As a member of Martux_M crew he worked on the audio post-production of “The Suspended Gesture”, a multimedia installation inspired by details of Roberto Capucci’s “dress-sculpture”; he played with Arto Lindsay, Raiz and ONJ orchestra at “Pomigliano Jazz festival 2010”; he opened the soirée of International Rome Film Festival with Dj Krush and the pianist Chihiro Yamanaka; he is currently playing at Brancaleone, Rome, for Martux-M CREW project "In-Beat-Ween-Zone" with international artists as Andy Cato (Groove Armada), The Field, Trentemoller, Apparat, Ellen Allien.

Lanvideosource

Lanvideosource

Enzo Varriale aka Lanvideosource is a videoartist and musician.

His work consists of audiovisual performances, VJ sets and  works of visual design that cross the margins of fusion between acoustic and visual domain. Starting from the raw information extracted from complex and chaotic domains (human brain activity, the World Wide Web, the daily television flow) he applies a shift of the intrinsic structure of data through digital manipulation, creating audio-visual representations of it.
By choice, his work is not associated with a particular technique, he rather prefer the Hybrid and the fusion of forms of expression: from the classic video-making and video-mixing techniques, to the recent generative aesthetics. In this way He creates a cross-media mixture featuring a strong synaesthetic impact on the Audience.Born from a careful selection of colors, shapes and sounds, his works offer to the viewer a window on a "other" reality which talks in depth with the visual and acoustic imagery of the audience. Abstract shapes and sounds produced by digital manipulation penetrate the senses of the viewer, reaching in it the synthesis, where abstract shape becomes sign and symbol.
During the past years he has collaborated with many artists and he has been invited to show in several national and international events with audiovisual performances, installations and VJing shows.
In 2005, in Rome, he conceived and founded the collective Lanvideosource with Gianluca Lisco (www.lanvideosource.net).
He worked with Mattia Casalegno and collective Kinotek (www.kinotek.org) for the production of audiovisual performances and installations based on new media.He has taught courses and workshops on generative visual softwares and on the techniques of video art.
He actually collaborate with Maurizio Martusciello (aka Martux_M) and Gianpasquale Rina (aka Kocleo) for the creation of audiovisual works, cross-media performances and the production of electronic music.
