Demdike Stare is the occult themed collaboration between Sean Canty and Miles Whittaker. They will be the official opening of the festival at the old cinema Verdensteatret Cinematek. Sit down, relax and go with the music.

Using the stepping stones of vinyl and VHS history as inspiration, and obscure hardware as the means, Demdike Stare create ethereal music that emanates from the unconscious. Fusing starkly different musical backgrounds, Sean hails from the Finder’s Keeper’s stable, and Miles through his numerous techno orientated monikers, they blend the two distinct worlds and genre obfuscation becomes the norm. Crossing from cold analog drones to hints of lush Eastern mysticism without losing focus, Demdike Stare create their own unique atmosphere during their live shows, sampling VHS movies and soundtracking their journey through the visual and aural archive of the last 50 years.
