Kazuyuki Kishino AKA KK NULL
Kazuyuki KISHINO (aka K.K. NULL) was born in Tokyo, Japan 1961. Composer, guitarist, singer, mastermind of progressive hardcore band ZENI GEVA.
In 1981 Kazuyuki KISHINO studied at Butoh dancer, Min Tanaka’s “Mai-Juku” workshop and started his career by performing guitar improvisation at clubs in Tokyo. He continued by collaborating with MERZBOW for two years, and joining the band YBO2 (with Masashi Kitamura, the chief editer of “Fool’s Mate” magazine and Tatsuya Yoshida, the drummer of RUINS) and starting the improvised noise/rock trio ABSOLUT NULL PUNKT (with Seijiro Murayama, the original drummer of Keiji Haino’s FUSHITSUSHA).
In 1985 he established his own label NUX ORGANIZATION to produce & release his own works and subsequently the bands such as MELT-BANANA. He also produced the series of “Dead Tech” (compilation albums by Japanese bands) which heralded Japanese alternative music boom internationally from the early 90’s to date.
In the early 90’s he gained world-wide recognition as the mastermind, guitarist and singer of the progressive hardcore band ZENI GEVA, releasing five albums produced by STEVE ALBINI (two on Jello Biafra’s Alternative Tentacles label) and a few more on other labels such as NEUROSIS’s Neurot Recordings. Also ZENI GEVA recorded twice for JOHN PEEL SESSION on BBC, and immensely toured throughout Europe, USA, Australia, New Zealand and Japan, playing hundreds of concerts.
All the while, Kazuyuki KISHINO has been working on his solo career and collaborating with other musical innovators such as Z’EV, CHRIS WATSON, KEIJI HAINO, JON ROSE, MATMOS, FRED FRITH to name a few, and has been invited to perform at international festivals such as “Presences Électronique” in Paris (France), “Sonar” in Barcelona (Spain), “All Tomorrow’s Parties UK”, “Radar” in Mexico City (Mexico), “International Sound Art Festival” in Mexico City (Mexico), “Sergey Kuryokhin International Festival (SKIF-6 & 8)” in St.Petersburg & Moscow (Russia), “Elevate” in Graz (Austria), “X-peripheria” in Budapest (Hungary), “Liquid Architecture” in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane (Australia), “Totally Huge New Music Festival” in Perth (Australia), “Avanto Helsinki Media Art Festival” in Helsinki (Finland), “Roadburn” in Tilburg (Holland), “International Festival Musique Actuelle” in Victoriaville (Canada), “Electron” in Geneve (Switzerland), and many more.
After playing the guitar as his main instrument for nearly thirty years, Kazuyuki KISHINO has gradually moved towards a more electronic approach. Since the late 90’s he has been concentrating his efforts on his solo & collaborative recordings, exploring the outer territories of electronica, creating intense clashing wave of noise, structured electro-acoustic ambience, broken down rhythmics, scattered pitch sculptures, droning isolationist material which could be described “cosmic noise maximal/minimalism”.
Selected commissioned works : – “Cryptozoon” surround composition for Festival Presences Électronique 2013 by Ina GRM (Paris) – “Edging” music for dance theatre by Tazcorp (Paris) – “Visiting Tarab” live performance piece by Sharjah Art Foundation (U.A.E) – “Aria, acqua, fuoco, terra” sound for exhibition “Andar Par Stelle” by Cesare Berlingeri (Padova, Italy)

visual artist | Ligths – video
is a visual artist who works with imagery, light and space. He has been directing and producing audiovisual performances, stage designs, video works and installations since 2001. Weber’s performances are concerned with memory and perception, identity formation and dissolution – particularly in the context of possible futures and their underlying mythologies.
Marcel Weber is a resident visual artist for several event series focused on the exploration of experimental music and art in Berlin and internationally. He is is part of Berlin’s Atonal festival team as director for lights and visuals and a long time collaborator of Unsound festival. His performances and installations have been commissioned and featured by many highly regarded festivals, such as CTM and Transmediale (Berlin), Mutek (Montreal) and Unsound (Krakow, Adelaide, Toronto) and have been shown at renown venues like the British Film Institute, Barbican, Centre Pompidou and CERN as well as numerous institutions and events across Europe, USA and Australia.
His work is marked by a well-defined and distinctive aesthetic that both resonates with and forms a relationship to sound. Applying to the visual the musical language, with its ability to shape emotional worlds, an ethereal quality emerges, brought to life by his passion for experimental narratives.
Recent projects of note include collaborations with film composers such as Kyle Dixon & Michael Stein and Jed Kurzel, sound artists like Tim Hecker, Ben Frost and Liz Harris (Grouper) and musicians like Kara-Lis Coverdale and Roly Porter. In the past Weber had also contributed video design to houses of high culture, having worked at the Opera national de Paris, the Academy of Arts Berlin, at Sophiensaele Berlin and the brut theatre in Vienna on a variety of theatre plays and opera productions.
