In offer will be a concert of the young electronical group MIDI LIDI from Brno, a projection of DVD Antenna UK showing the latest trends of British audivisual creations and a presentation/workshop of/about musical software. The programme is completed by a projection of blocs of videoclips prepared by the curator and an eclectic dj set.

 

 

 

Sperm Soiree is a series of non-commercial action, whose aim is to stimulate the local sorrounding of  the experimantal-eletronical music and audiovisual scene. It ties in with the Sperm Festival, with takes place each year in Frebruary and generates a platform for unbroken presentation of new national and, as far as circumstances permitting, also international artists.

With presentations and workshops the project faces up to the challenge of demonstrating and gaining hands-on experience of  the opportunities of state-of-the-art musical and visual software and other technologies.

The role of explaining matters pertaining to existence, genesis and nature of the world could be fullfilled by myths, symbols and rituals.
