L_KW and Soydivision announced +62 Tour 2020 with line up : Morgan Sully (Messyfingers), Ariel Orah (Ravenative), and Juan Arminandi

Building on our tour through Indonesia last year, L_KW and Soydivision are planning on coalescing audiences of Indonesian artists we have met here in Berlin during the CTM & Transmediale Festival Hacklab+Vorspiel 2020.

As southeast Asian artists working  and developing musical/theatrical works, sound installations, sonic and culinary performances here in Berlin, it is important for us to deepen the knowledge of our heritage in both local and international scenes.

Our tour is a practice-led research trip, focusing on building up dialogue between artists and expanding shared audiences between Indonesia and Berlin.  We will activate this by inviting local artists in Indonesia to perform and workshop with us, co-creating knowledge exchange of techniques, histories and heritage.

We want to meet like-minded artists, curators and labels that share our love for adventurous and experimental music that blends contemporary and traditional, improvised and fixed, analog and electronic.

  • 04.03.2020 : Bali (Studio Eksotika)
  • 10.03.2020 : Jakarta (Rubanah Underground Hub)

(Previously Luftmenschen Klangwerk)

is a collective effort of sound and performing art, based in Berlin, formed in 2016 as a part of the Luftmenschen constellation. It´s main activities range from being a collaborative platform, organizing showcases and events, documenting it´s activities in physical format such as cassette, vinyl, and book. Short story is it's a hybrid entity of art collective, record label, and booking/promo agentur, working in the area of sound and performing art. 



Soydivision Berlin is an art collective consisting of Berlin-based Indonesians with the goal of provoking a discussion about the exploration and expression of identity through art and food. The experiences they went through both as foreigners and as long time residents in a land that doesn’t necessarily share the same characteristics with the one they hail from forces them to reevaluate their standing in a new society while retaining the aspects that consolidated their pre-formed identity. One of the most significant parts of this particular struggle comes from the different eating habits on one hand and the scarcity of familiar food on the other. Exposure to, and interaction with, different people, mediums, environments and design, lead to experimentations that Soydivision Berlin chose to tackle from an artistic and culinary perspective. Every output features a collaboration with a guest artist to reflect a process that demands symbiotic interactions, prone to unforeseen interventions and, ultimately, never-ending. Soydivision Berlin aims to explore all possible permutations, mixing, matching, amplifying, reducing in a performative as well as culinary context, ultimately translating their events into an interface for experimentations in the hope that it will help make sense of the environment we live in.


Audial Plane

A contemporary platform for projects initiated by musicians, composers, and sound artist, producing and disseminating recordings and releases, performances, to exhibitions closely related to the Triadic notion of Sound, Space, and Place. Considering the ubiquitous nature of sound phenomenon, Audial Plane aims to facilitate the development and exploration of sound in a much wider array than what categorises as ‘music’ where rather-generalised terms such as experimental music are now commonly replaced by sound art, be it sound performance or installation.

Initiated by Bandung-based writer and curator Bob Edrian, Audial Plane is a division of Orange Cliff Records founded in 2019 to accommodate realms beyond the reach of the 2012-founded label’s current focus, cooperating also with Berlin-based, as coined by their bio, sonic-syndicate, L_Klangkunst Werk / L_KW.


Morgan Sully (messyfingers)

Morgan is a Berlin-based American-Indonesian artist who performs as Memeshift, coaxing danceable musical forms from common grooveboxes, old laptops, drum machines, Ableton Live and off-the-shelf synthesizers.  Morgan’s other projects include .obat. which emits resonant drones for attentive listening and messyfingers which complexifies and performs site-specific electroacoustic music inspired by gamelan percussions. Morgan’s musicological interests also include ballads, spirituals and other roots Americana as well as FM synthesis, gamelan and live sound composition for theater and ritual.


Ravenative (Ariel Orah)

Ariel William Orah is a Berlin-based Indonesian artist who explores themes related to identity, memory, and scarcity. He fancies the durability of homo sapiens and the fragility of the machines. He is working with variety of media, ranging from audio and sound sculptures, physical and interactive installations, and moving and/or still images.  He co-founded an empathy driven artist collective “Formerly Known as Luftmenschen” in 2015 and Bandung-based progressive rock band “Vincent Vega”. Selected works included commissioned installation for Tanz im August Festival Berlin (2016), film-music scoring for “Deeper High”- Germany (2018), solo album “Scarcity” (2017)  and “WIM”  (2018) under alias ravenative.
