Belia Winnewisser effortlessly meanders between banging club, harsh noisescapes and catchy songwriting, making use of high-strung breakbeats, electronic artefacts, eery synths, mesmerizing arpeggi and warm melodic parts. Bringing together club and pop and sound art, likewise thrilling physically and intellectually. The live a/v show focuses on ultra-modern 3D-Objects, that still retain a momentum of light hearted playfulness. The music video for Dancing Patterns was released by »Die Orakel« in 2022.

Red On operates in a complex electronic sound cosmos: Lofi-pop sketches emerge from sprawling post-rock jams. Live techno, a loud krautrock posse, a jazz ensemble, or very focused noise music. Recently, the project was a lot about interdisciplinary collaborations and live band performances. 
The heart of the visual cosmos is formed by shapes and patterns, generated by a video synthesizer. To reflect the collective working approach of the sound, contributions from other artists, such as Meike Männel or Karin Kolb, add to building a manifold visual world that interweaves with the music. Image and sound as a shared moment.

Function Level Marker is 100% live act. In dark and glossy pictorial worlds and contemporary breakbeats the project thinks picture and sound at the same time - overproduced and a little bit off. Gloomy electronic music between downbeat and industrial and videos with roots in contemporary graphic design. Sometimes somewhat more abstract, sometimes with an eye on the club. Casually drums, images and synths go along here; now. At the dancefloor or on stage – wherever.

Sabrina Zeltner aka Subrihanna

Sabrina Zeltner aka Subrihanna is a visual artist focusing on a/v live performances, video works and graphic design. 
Her artistic practice is situated in the interplay between video, installation, audio-visual live performances, graphic design as well as subculture and club culture. She nearly always works in collaboration, making the mutual exchange and cooperation with musicians, artists, and graphic designers into an important aspect of the overall dynamic of her artistic practice. As she says herself, shared moments provide a direction for impulses.
The multi-layered, largely interdisciplinary projects are manifested in music videos, live visuals, and live video performances, in which visual worlds and aesthetic form are mutually influential—the live moment is always already anticipated in the videos or inspires them.
For example, the music videos she created for Red On (a project by label owner, DJ, and producer Philipp Dittmar) or that she conceived as part of the audiovisual duo Function Level Marker (together with musician and producer Florian von Ameln), which were developed out of a direct engagement with the compositions. Here, sound worlds are juxtaposed to visual worlds. The visuals form a part of the aesthetic whole and are inextricably linked to these projects. In addition to the videos, Sabrina Zeltner often creates consistent artwork including record design and posters. 
Under the name Subrihanna she also stages live video performances that incorporate the visual worlds of the music videos and extend them into the dimensions of space and time. Through mapping, the visual elements enter into an expanded field, becoming performance, projection, display, and installation all at once. In this way, the experience of the concert is transformed, introducing a new level.
As part of the VJ team Prizesin Haralt (together with graphic designer Karin Kolb and artist Lilly Urbat), Sabrina Zeltner also creates live visuals and content for clubs, among other places.
Rooted in the aesthetics of contemporary graphic design, Sabrina Zeltner’s works are notable for their fascination with movement and form, dynamics and rhythm. She thus employs graphic elements and organic 3D animations or photographic imagery, while at times working exclusively with typography and text. Sometimes she uses cuts and effects such as crossfading and overlapping in order to convey an abstract narrative with the music, while other times she does without any cuts at all. Image and sound, however, always come together in an interwoven synthesis.
