The Hum is metaphoric. Vibrating, ongoing, resonance. For The Hum a live performance is not disconnected from the participating bodies on the floor. So a DJ set is bound to the sound experiencing moving bodies on the dancefloor of a club. The Hum as an artistic research investigates dimensions of a shared sound and dance experience through electronic music, movement art and beyond. The audience is a crucial part of an artistic happening and yet we don't share the idea of a crowd that needs to be pleased. We celebrate the opposite of historically functionalised settings and considering more experiments on the floor – experiments by all its participating actors.

March 3, 2016 The Hum 303 DJ and dance session
Don't DJ (Berceuse Heroique) is interested in what he calls "musique acéphale" - a metric which has no distinct starting point and thus encourages the listener to constantly switch his metric focus to discover different "points of listen" within the same arrangement. Don't DJ seeks to inspire consciousness to wander beyond culturally suggested boundaries of the perception of reality.
Vladimir Ivkovic (Offen Music / Salon des Amateurs) is resident of the seminal Salon des Amateurs in Düsseldorf. Since playing a pivotal role in Belgrade’s first “house” parties in the earliest 90s and soundtracking surreal gatherings at the sea, Vladimir’s knowledge has expanded at an alarming rate, documented by cult recordings that are frustratingly hard to find.

The Hum stays anti with Tolouse Low Trax
The Hum with Tolouse Low Trax, Dunkeltier and Eleganter Elephanter. After a heartening journey to the conditional realm of 1980s-based four to the floor modifications, interpretations and synthetic beyonds with June and Phuong Dan and the bleeby, breaky Nr. 73 with KilleKill's Fist Van Odor. We proceeded to a rather vibrating and metallic quality of exploratory music and dance with Italic label's Harmonius Thelonius and Willis Anne. Saturday Octobre 3rd with performances by Karaoke Kalk's Tolouse Low Trax, Dunkeltier and Eleganter Elephanter. More info (click)
