Faust and Tony Conrad to perform at Atonal

1973 album Outside The Dream Syndicate to be performed in Berlin this August

Collaborating live for the first time in 20 years Tony Conrad and Faust will perform their 1973 album Outside The Dream Syndicate at Berlin Atonal. The festival takes over the entire Kraftwerk building from 19–23 August for a programme of world premiere performances, audiovisual shows, installations and more.

Also scheduled is a collaboration between Raster-Noton artist Kangding Ray and Mogwai’s Barry Burns entitled SUMS; Alessandro Cortini (Nine Inch Nails) debuting his live audiovisual project Sonno; a rare live appearance from Ugandan Methods (Regis and Ancient Methods); the first ever live audiovisual show by Mike Parker; and David Borden and his Mother Mallard Ensemble, who, the festival organisers claim, will “fill the cavernous cathedral with synthesizer soundscapes”.

Tickets are available now.
