Nina Pixel, the artist behind the mysteriously-titled project Black Acid, tells stories that go beyond a mere amalgam of ritual rhythms looped in endless sonic soundscapes and dirty dark techno. Often drawing on her own experience, emotions, feelings mixed with recordings, trashed instruments she cannot play, other instruments she cannot play correctly or in a traditional way, her work aims to demonstrate the organic beauty of an imperfect life. Her performances balance between live acts and DJing, sampling, looping and feeling, and are often based on different topics as the main leitmotif for each set.
Her new work for the Pentacle 15.3 Surround Sound System was commissioned by the Sonic Acts festival in collaboration with A4, as part of the international collaborative project Re-Imagine Europe, co-financed by the EU’s Creative Europe Programme.
