Gabber Modus Operandi originated in the experimental punk scene of Denpasar, Bali’s capital city. Their hard, fast, abrasive electronic music combine high-speed Western club sounds with gamelan, a traditional percussion-based music that isa central part of Indonesian culture. Their music highlights the influence of the internet on millennial Indonesians as theyadapt old traditions to digital technologies and new ways of living. Performing in homemade costumes, the duo combinesimpossibly fast tracks with a barrage of throat-shredding vocals. They recently contributed to Björk’s new album ‘Fossora’ and perform regularly at major European electronic music festivals.

Rani Jambak is a composer, producer and vocalist based in Medan, North Sumatra. She began her performance career by working on the Goethe Institute’s Sound of X project and launching Medan Soundspectives, a festival celebrating the acoustic diversity of her home city. Jambak is a dedicated environmentalist who produces music to raise awareness on environmental issues through a music-ecological campaign entitled #FORMYNATURE. Her new project #FUTUREANCESTOR is inspired by her Minangkabau ethnic identity and uses sound to explore connections between traditional knowledge and nature.
