The electronic duo of Agatha & Molyneaux present their first album, “Intimacy without obsession”: self-referential and spontaneous, the album stems from personal experiences, in a form of narrative, and finds expression through different genres of electronic/dance music. With spoken word and performativity, their music straddles the line between the club and alternative scene, in the genre of electro with lo-fi characteristics and big room energy.

Special guest: Pepper Levain / Opening set: Degear0001

Agatha & Molyneaux began collaborating in 2020 through ongoing jam sessions. Recognising common elements in their sound, they created their first tracks and the duo went on to perform a series of live shows. With a first hybrid performance (live-dj set) at Qreclaim 2021 at Communitism, Agatha & Molyneaux continued to create tracks while evolving the performative element of the live show. During 2022 and 2023, the duo performed at Fade radio, Power dance pride and Fauna sauna.

Agatha is a sound designer and music producer based in Athens. Through different activities in the broader creative sector, they have shaped their practice and research on sound.

Degear0001 is an electronic music composer from Athens. His music is produced with improvised electronic musical instruments, often built and moded by himself, that along with synths and modules, create an experimental mix of electronic “bleeps” and “bloops”, and a uniquely playful delirium of lo-fi, ambient melodies. All of the above, are topped with high pitched, distorted/chipmunk vocals wrapped in a dark humorous theatrical mood. Visuals By: Eva Bolou, Alex Kokx
