Concert

The Autoplacer Festival will be held on Saturday 22 September. The day-long festival is an annual event run by the Autoplacer/Sindicalistas collective to celebrate self-published music with a series of concerts by up-and-coming emerging and/or submerged bands, electronic music sessions and the presentation of projects related with self-publishing of records, fanzines, books, design and a long etcetera.

The festival is free and open to all-comers throughout the whole day: a genuine music festival … but inside a contemporary art museum.

CONCERT PROGRAMME

PABLO PRISMA Y LAS PIRÁMIDES. Cuchillo de Fuego’s musical parameters coincide with hardcore insofar as their punk-based rabid sound and noise/post-hardcore texture (think Melvins, Jesus Lizard…). But this quartet from Pontevedra condenses it all into short blasts of biting, hard songs as dense as silex wrapped up in incendiary, lucid and humorous lyrics written on sanding paper. Cuchillo de Fuego came to attention at Liceo Mutante, Galicia’s true underground temple, in 2014 with Triple España, released on their own label Amawisca. They immediately rose to the peak of the punk scene (understood as any music removed from passing trends and based on doing whatever the hell you want and with whatever you have at hand) in Spain.

TULIP (Winners of the Autoplacer 2018 competition)

Tulip is a band from Vigo formed by Marta Rodríguez (Wild Balbina) and Óscar Raña (Dois). After almost one year rehearsing together, they decided to turn the project up another notch and brought on board Miguel Bianchi (Mvnich) and Daniel Nicolás (Fantasmage). At the end of 2017, they recorded the five tracks on their homonymous first EP using their own means, which they then completed in 2018 with the help of mastering by Xavier Alarcón.

17.55h - HARDCUTE UKELELE

Hardcute Ukelele is a “drum and ukulele” duo from Seville formed by two friends who decided one day to enter a competition of versions in which the first prize was a ham. Once they had the ham and the ovation of the public—thanks to a magical version in Spanish of Lionel Richie’s legendary Hello— Hardcute Ukelele went one step further and decided to record their first live videos for Youtube, full of fantasy and drawings made with Paint. Elena plays the electric ukulele and Rosa the drums. Hardcute Ukelele’s cutesy appearance belies a punk underbelly, with a brand of bedroom pop with a humour and attitude reminiscent of pure Jonathan Richman. After the release of their first album and thanks to the success of their concerts throughout Spain, Hardcute Ukelele played at major festivals like Canela Party, El día de la marmota and Make Noise de Converse, and were the support group for Calvin Johnson at a concert in a church.

Formado durante su tiempo como residentes en la Red Bull Music Academy de Montreal en 2016. El proyecto fusiona los intereses de ambos productores por la música latinoamericana, el pop, el punk, la new wave japonesa y la experimentación sonora.

19.45h - DOBLE PLETINA

Doble Pletina es un quinteto de música pop de Barcelona. Se caracteriza por composiciones que, con los ingredientes justos y precisos, buscan la efectividad y se convierten en himnos de lo cotidiano, saltándose la idea preconcebida de “hit”.

Doble pletina

20.45h - CUCHILLO DE FUEGO

Cuchillo de Fuego se mueven en parámetros musicales cercanos al hardcore en cuanto a su rabiosa base guitarrera de aliento punk y textura noise/post-hardcore (leáse Melvins, Jesus Lizard…). Pero en el caso del cuarteto pontevedrés su propuesta se condensa en temas de menor duración, afilados, duros y densos como el silex y envueltos en unas letras incendiarias, lúcidas y también divertidísimas escritas sobre papel de lija.  Al calor de ese auténtico templo del underground gallego que es el Liceo Mutante, Se dieron a conocer en 2014 con “Triple España” editado bajo su propio sello Amawisca, para situarse desde el primer instante en lo más alto del panorama punk (entendido como toda propuesta musical que, ajena a las modas, se basa en hacer lo que a uno le da la santa gana y con los medios a su alcance) nacional.

21.45h - LAS ODIO

Ágata Ahora (guitar), Ali Holgado (drums), Paula JJ (vocals and synths) and Sonsoles Rodríguez (bass) are Las Odio, a quartet of riot grrrls set up in 2015 in the Madrid underground scene, or infrandergraun as they call it. In summer 2016 they recorded what would be their first album, Futuras Esposas, at the Reno studios in Madrid with the producer Carlos Pereiro “Carlangas” (Novedades Carminha) and the sound engineer Luca Petricca. Just a few months later, when Blackout, the first track from the album, was released, Las Odio lost their mantle as Madrid’s best kept secret as they began to make headlines in the music and cultural press, who marked them as the most promising talent of 2017 with their exciting, gutsy sound that has been variously described as post-punk, pop, garage or rock… with nobody able to make up their mind exactly what it is. One thing though that everybody agrees on is that their lyrics pull no punches: telling feminist but also generational stories with biting humour and irony.

22.45h - PUTOCHINOMARICÓN

Putochinomaricón is an East-Asian queer artist who uses pop music as a tool to defend everyday socio-political issues with absurd humour and irony. Putochinomaricón likes post-internet and making still-lifes in front of his bathroom mirror. He doesn’t like the social, moral and critical precariousness of today’s society. His mother says that he is a vitamix of PCmusic, Charli XCX, Ecce Hommo and Jawbreaker. Putochinomaricón is protest and fight in Comic Sans. Putochinomaricón is pop cynicism. Putochinomaricón is his own troll. Putochinomaricón is what he says he is, a fucking-Chinese-fag.

PISTA DE BAILE. COLECTIVOS INVITADOS

15.00h - LAIKAMORI

“Persona” (2018) es el título del primer álbum largo del dúo peruano de electrónica experimental Laikamorí, que ha sido presentado de manera sorpresiva en sus redes sociales. Es en esta producción que el enigma comulga con lo surreal, y el corazón indómito de Laikamorí se revela y vuelve a liberar un tropel de voces sacras que se extienden y marchan —como en una catedral— por los pasillos del alma. “Persona” es esa búsqueda del cimiento original, del núcleo inmaterial. Dicho por ellos mismos, los 11 temas que componen este LP nacen en los segundos de antesala al sueño de sus creadores, del llamado sopor, donde suele habitar la verdad más desnuda y sugerente.

https://laikamori.bandcamp.com/

Laikamori

16.00h - REAL NO REAL

Real No Real is interested in creating an alternative space for expression and listening. It’s evening-time slot at the Sala 0 - Palacio de la Prensa club in Madrid produces an unique atmosphere customised every time through sound and interventions in the space.

Real no real

19.30h - OJO ÚLTIMO

Ojo Último is a kind of robot poet with crazy ideas. A raging wizard constantly switching between two worlds. Between past and future. Between good and evil. Between strokes of genius and bouts of nonsense. In an intense limbo. His new album, El Núcleo Duro, is a trilogy. An electronic opera. An expedition into the jungle and a mission into space. A journey to the outer limits of reality and of oneself. For the live presentation of the album he has prepared a show that gives shape and body to an unsettling, paradoxical, bizarre, and surprising world.

https://ojoultimo.bandcamp.com/

ojo último

20.30h - CHICO TRÓPICO

Chico Trópico, a switchboard of artistic-sound actions in operation since 2010, will launch onto the Autoplacer 2018 dance floor a histrionic session of loops, synths and stomping tropical, noisy, sugary, corrosive and dancey tracks designed to align feet, hips and minds on the same wavelength.

The Autoplacer/Sindicalistas collective is now presenting the 7th Autoplacer Festival. Scheduled for Saturday 1 October, this free festival is aimed at the whole family and lasts all day long with a programme of live concerts featuring some of the best groups from the Spanish indie and underground scene. Besides the nine concerts taking place on three different stages, the festival also has a dance floor with live and DJ sessions by two indie collectives from Madrid, a space for audiovisual projections and an area set aside for various guest projects related with self-publishing showcasing a whole load of self-published records, cassettes, t-shirts, books, fanzines and comics and all kinds of underground merchandising

PROGRAMME OF CONCERTS

JUVENTUD JUCHÉ. Juventud Juché’s first contact with Autoplacer was three years ago in the Extramuros series of concerts which the collective organised for the exhibition Pop Politics at CA2M. Since then this Madrid-based trio have never stopped giving incredible live performances that have seen them grow and develop on stage. Their first LP,Quemadero, an abrupt exercise in art-punk, was followed this year by Movimientos, acclaimed by many as the album of the year, produced by Ian Crause, leader of the mythical Disco Inferno.

Juventud Juché

ARIES. Alter ego of Isabel Fernández Reviriego, Aries is an electronic excursion into homespun pop that entwines classic and modern musical traditions with a freshness and aplomb hard to find elsewhere. The powerful melodies with a strong sixties undertone, bringing to mind Brian Wilson and West Coast psychedelic sounds, are mixed with smooth electronic sounds. Aries manages to break away from the long shadow of her former group Charades, shifting her songs to more fertile ground, and throwing off the shackles of stylistic branding.

https://aries.bandcamp.com

Aries

PAPAYA is Yanara Espinoza or, in other words, a project that came about in summer 2014 from this Canary-born, Chilean-Spanish artist (also in Violeta Vil). Papaya boasts a varied, no-holds-barred repertoire built on her dark, androgynous voice and her highly personal mise en scene (accompanied by Sebastián Litmanovich and Miguel Aguas). Her album No me quiero enamoraris a multicolour collage that throws up everything from a bolero to disco, new wave, or evocative dark or Caribbean ambiences …

https://jabalinamusica.bandcamp.com/album/no-me-quiero-enamorar

Esmeraldo

ESMERALDO. Esmeraldo came about when Santiago Castillo decided to spend his holidays at the Master Flux recording studio (Paco Loco). The plan was simple: to start recording without knowing what would happen with the songs. That session ultimately gave rise to five cuts from which an EP was released called Campamento Flúxor. Since the release, Esmeraldo became a fully-fledged group with Elisa (keyboards and backing vocals), Luis (bass), Arturo (drums) and Castillo himself on vocals and guitar.

ALARIDO MONGÓLICO. Alarido Mongólico is a multidisciplinary project embracing music, video and love. A love child created by the producer Andrés Agulla and the designer Joel Blanco. After a few years of silence, Alarido Mongólico is back from the wilderness with new singles and videos that introduce a twist towards a more electronic sound, released digitally by Ferror Records (Ferrol) and Ruggle Records (Madrid). They have recently released the new videoAlarido Mongólico (ha llegado a la ciudad)for the first group’s physical release Alarido Mongólico is back, in cassette and digital.

Alarido mongólico

DOPPELTGÄNGER. Doppeltgänger is the one who walks alongside you, by your side. Like the dark underbelly that nobody wants to see. Walking parallel with a wickedness even wickeder than your own. A Madrid-Portugaletetarra duo thrashing away in the cold wave, the no wave, and minimalist, instrumental synth-punk. Over the last year, this project by ex-members of Gone With the Pain, Juanita y Los Feos and Afilador, has gradually defined its style with an intense, in-your-face darkness distilled with the single goal of transporting us to another dimension with its cool atmospheres and textures.

https://doppeltganger.bandcamp.com 

Doppeltganger

ALBERTO ACINAS. Alberto Acinas is viewed by many as nothing less than an underground legend who combines painting with sound. His music is known for tackling head-on the folklore tradition of centre-north Spain sprinkled with a little bit of flamenco but from a contemporary perspective and attitude, with a decidedly experimental slant. The lyrics, largely autobiographical and existentialist, are charged with irony but also sincerity and poetry.

https://albertoacinas.bandcamp.com 

Alberto Acinas

SALFUMÁN. Salfumán is the handcrafted electronic pop project by Sandra Rapulp, vocalist and producer from Valencia. The idea behind Salfumán is to create a hypnotic sexy atmosphere to make you dance, whether at home, at a club or at a festival. The nostalgic melodies weave a dream-like weft, at times dark, from a sound that swings between synth-pop and ambient, with a strong influence from disco, r’n’b and 80s sounds, seasoned with a subtle electronic backbeat that doesn’t settle down in any given bit.

https://salfuman.bandcamp.com 

Salfumán

CAPTAINS. (Winners of the Autoplacer 2016 competition) The producer David Baldo and the German singer Fee Reega met in January 2015 with the idea of recording some of Fee’s songs only to end up creating a completely new project. Shortly afterwards the group was rounded off by Oskar SD on drums and Aaron Dall on bass. Though they wanted to create a new sound all of their own, their songs are also influenced by electronica, postpunk and folk rock, with lyrics that speak of rebellion and catharsis.

AUDIOVISUAL ENCOUNTER 

PROCESADORA is an audiovisual fanzine which has filled the Radio 3 Extra web with videos. Keeping one ear to the ground, it stays abreast of changing trends, creation, philosophy, actions taking place here and there, now. A programme which is a rehearsal, a collage, a moving photo of realities that escape around the edges, paying special attention to projects with girls, with gender, networks, trans, pop culture …every Monday, for a year, one 3-minute video is a page in a mutant fanzine always in the making.

Procesadora is now taking a well-earned break, with the firm belief that the pages will keep on filling up with images and sounds.

Created by Toña Medina and Ángeles Oliva for Radio 3.

Procesadora

RADIO STATION

SILLY EUROPEANS is a collaborative and polymorphic project by Machines Désirantes Buró, a Madrid-based studio for creation and developing ideas. First of all it took the format of sound experimentation, with which it propagated over the radio waves of a podcast, a torrent of compiled images and sounds, a compendium of adventures, interviews and sound documents of all kinds that range from urban recordings to musical performances, assembled in a collage of imperfect beauty. The diversification of the project by these restless souls has led to work with other formats like publications, happenings and parties in which one can see clear lines of flight: alterity, urgency, randomness and nomadism are familiar anchors of style and intention, homemade experimentation, deformation, play and humour.

In the context of the exhibition PUNK. Its Traces in Contemporary Art, we have programmed a day of intensity which will concentrate dialogs, performances, and concerts related to punk. Furthermore, we will introduce the selection of publications made by Sergio Rubira for the library of the Center, and that will remain open until the end of the exhibition.

PROGRAM

18:30 H. OPENING OF LIBRARY SELECTION AND PRESENTATION BY SERGIO RUBIRA: FROM ROCOCO TO ROCKOCÓ: AN INTERMITTENT HISTORY OF SUBCULTURES
LIBRARY

This conference is proposed as a route through the history of some of the fundamental subcultures, starting off with some notions which could be associated with the fanzine Rockocó, published by photographer Miguel Trillo between 1980 and 1984, and with the pioneering essay on punk, Subculture. The Meaning of Style, by Dick Hebdige, which explains this phenomenon premised on conflicts of race and class. This intermittent history of subcultures will start with exaggerated eighteenth-century macaroni; it will continue with nineteenth-century dandies and bohemians, and with the avant-garde Dadá-dandies; and it will end with the punk movement and its crimes against style.

19:30 H. PERFORMANCE: HATE VERSES, DISCOTECA FLAMING STAR
HALL

Discoteca Flaming Star (Consuelo Guijarro Rincón, CGB, WM), “Hate Verses”. As their contribution to the night, DFS will première a performance inspired by the sober drunkenness of Dorothy Parker, and Guy Debord's thoughts on Asger Jorn's "Le Jardin de Albisola", among others. Black lollipops play around in your mouth while you suck on poetry and perfume.

20:00 H. CONVERSATION: SERVANDO ROCHA AND DAVID G. TORRES
AUDITORIUM

21:00 H. PERFORMANCE: BOX SIZED DIE FEATURING AVULSED, 2007-2015
3rd FLOOR

A performance based on the piece Box Sized DIE Featuring..., by artist João Onofre. With the participation of Spanish Death Metal band Avulsed.

21:30 H. CONCERT: AFILADOR
HALL

Three people, two races. Don't be fooled, there's no Lavapiés hippie multicultural aspect to this band. From post-everything to the principles of when there was nothing. Primitive and noisy. From the idea that backing vocals are for melodic hardcore, voice is the point of rupture with anything that might resemble music.

And here they are. They like drinking, and they have a Bandcamp account with some advance tracks of what will eventually be their first LP:
https://afilador.bandcamp.com/

22:00 H. CONCERT: WANDA Y LA MUJER PANTERA
HALL

Wanda y la Mujer Pantera are a punk duet (bass and drums), who belong to the Solar System, and live in Madrid. As they themselves say, "we play short and visceral songs that arise from the things we love/hate in everyday life, and in this disgusting society".
https://wandaylamujerpantera.bandcamp.com/releases

22:40 H. CONCERT: JUVENTUD JUCHÉ
HALL

Juventud Juché was born towards the end of 2012, with no pretense whatsoever. Nevertheless, a few months later, and after more than 70 gigs, in October 2013 they lock themselves up in the studio in order to give form to their first LP, Quemadero. A record made up of 12 songs in which they darken and make more radical their discourse, reminding us of bands such as The Pop Group, Fire Engines, or James Chance & The Contortions, but without ceasing to sound like themselves and like the different influences of their three members.

For the sixth year in a row, the self-publishing music festival organised by the Autoplacer/Sindicalistas collective arrives back to CA2M with a programme of live music throughout the whole day, with some of the best underground and independent Spanish groups.

Starting at twelve noon we will have a chance to catch eight concerts on the ground and first floor of the museum, including the presentation of the winning group in the Autoplacer annual rough-cuts competition and several Dance Floor sessions thanks to the collaboration of the electronic music collectives Paraíso Madrid and Valle Eléctrico. There will also be a chance to check out our screening room in “Sesión Continua” with video playlists by the editor Servando Rocha and the producer Kikol Grau. And, like other years, we also have an area for presenting independent projects where you will find loads of self-published records, cassettes, t-shirts, books, fanzines and comics as well as all kinds of underground merchandising. And to top it all off, we have a vermouth session on the terrace at midday and a few other surprises waiting in store. 

Admission free until capacity is reached.

PROGRAMME OF CONCERTS

Joe Crepúsculo is appearing at the festival to present his latest album, Nuevos Misterios. Music that conjures up beautiful visions: a gigantic, luxurious cruise ship full of curious tourists is majestically crossing a peaceful bay; pine trees swaying in the breeze blowing off the Mediterranean sea; big and little clubs with their dance floors flashing with light and the sound that wafts through the twilight.

Joe Crepúsculo

WILD HONEY. Guillermo Farré is the composer, singer and multi-instrumentalist from Madrid hiding behind the moniker Wild Honey. Guillermo’s debut recording as Wild Honey was a bedroom project in which he did almost everything himself. In 2015 Wild Honey is releasing Medalla de plata singing for the first time in Spanish.

Wild Honey

SIERRA. Sierra is the new project by Hugo Sierra (Margarita and Prisma en Llamas). In his latest guise as Sierra he is paving his own path as an artist creating true gems of passionate crystalline pop back with simple, direct instrumentation. With a range of influences spanning from Colin Newman and Julian Cope to early Depeche Mode and The Cure, the words are like blows of illuminated sincerity..

Sierra

CORTE MODERNO. Corte Moderno is a Barcelona-based group formed by Xabel Ferreiro (Montañas, ¡Pelea!), Jordi González (Kana Kapila, Cotolengo) and El Ortiga (Anticonceptivas, Thelemáticos, ¡Pelea!). On Saturday 26 they are presenting their latest work, Negociudad, a dissonant dystopia in the shape of a conceptual concert with sound design by Guillem G. Peeters and illustrations by Antoni Hervàs.

Corte moderno

RATA NEGRA. Rata Negra combines and plays with expressive styles that, over the passing of time, have led to their own signature sound, assimilating different influences to produce a unique mix. Some people will be able to detect echoes of Bauhaus, Killing Joke, Siouxsie and The Cure; others will be reminded of New Buildings making stripped-down punk.

Rata negra

MACARENA FVO. Macarena FVO is a group founded by the singer Macarena, the archaeologist-cum-saxophonist Santiago Rodrigo, the swagger poet Vicente Monroy, the producer and influencer from Valencia Muerte Horrible and the mezzosoprano and performer Anita Robla. They define their style as post electro fancy witch french touch.

Macarena FVO

JULIÁN MAYORGA. Julián Mayorga is a Colombian musician and artist based in Madrid. His music switches between poetry and machine, with elements from traditional songs, experimental music, electronica and surrealist poetry.

Julián Mayorga

PAN TOTAL. Winner of the Autoplacer rough-cuts competition in 2015, Pan Total came about from a cult non-supergroup from Logroño called La Pantaloneta. Eduardo, Víctor, Miryam and Fernando play a kind of dark guitar pop indebted to the eighties, with reminders of post-punk and new wave. Their influences include such disparate names as Television Personalities, Golpes Bajos and Los Pegamoides.

OTHER EVENTS

DANCE FLOOR

PARAÍSO. Since 2012 the collective Paraíso Madrid has been carrying our public and private playful and aesthetic interventions in the field of clubs, night life and music culture. It has a long-standing collaboration with Autoplacer, and for the festival in 2015 it will be showcasing its own particular way of building up a dance floor.

VALLE ELÉCTRICO. Valle Eléctrico is a cultural platform with a mandate to provide visibility to music groups whose sound is built around a synthesizer. This instrument has been the backbone of electronic music and its derivations in new music genes

SESIÓN CONTINUA – PROYECCIONES

UN POCO DE PELEA, UN POCO DE RUMBLE – Vídeo Playlist by Servando Rocha. Back in 1958 Link Wray released his successful single Rumble, an instrumental song that immediately stirred up great controversy. Every time it was played it was almost as if an outbreak of subcultural violence was feared. Rumble was a slang word for a gang fight among the first black hipsters in Harlem. It proved to be one of the most influential examples of white appropriation of black culture, trying to imitate its streetwise, dangerous and uncontrollable undercurrent. Rumble!

MATERIA PRIMA – Vídeo Playlist by Kikol Grau. This session speaks to us of origins, of rights and of the process of how images are manufactured and also the quality of materials. He will be showing extracts from his own recordings made with film clips, promotional videos, from archives in the public domain and private archives or downloaded from YouTube.

SISTERHOOD. Sisterhood is a self-run community based on feminism, a mutant collective which produces a fanzine of the same name, parties and revolutions. Always in a process of construction, it is still in the making and creating new off-shoots. It takes shape in reverberations of cultural artefacts that echo in our thoracic cavity. sisterhood.es

MONOCROMO. Monocromo is a label producing DIY illustration, fanzines, t-shirts, and music. Negro metal is its first project: over 40 logos of icons of Spanish music reinterpreted in a black metal aesthetic, published in fanzine format, Tumblr, t-shirts and stickers. www.mono-cromo.com

LA INTEGRAL. For many years now, La Integral has brought together in the one space the work of various artists and designers with the purpose of promoting their work and other products which find it difficult to get a commercial release. La Integral are regulars at the Autoplacer and for them this festival means being able to provide a new platform for a few hours for its independent productions like records, books, fanzines, magazines and t-shirts. And also, of course, to have a good time. www.laintegral25.com

MINCHO. Minchō. Illustration & Graphic Arts Magazine is a quarterly publication for lovers of illustration and magazine collectors. Although every day we consume comics, cartoons, newspapers strips, concert posters … we have no in-depth knowledge of the work of the artists who have designed some of the most significant images of our time. The sixth issue of Minchō continues in its endeavour to bring together a good sample of the new trends and experimentation in graphics closely tied in with culture today. http://minchomag.com/

LA NEGRA. La Negra is a new vinyl record shop located in the heart of the Prosperidad district in Madrid. Its goal is to be a refuge for music lovers nostalgic for analogue formats. Its core focus is on classic vinyl and its stands contain everything from original editions by mythical bands all the way to new releases by contemporary groups. Rock, garage, pop, punk, folk, psychedelic, exotica, electronica… All these different ways of understanding music have room in this little neighbourhood record store. New releases and re-editions sit side by side with a second-hand section, one of La Negra’s strong points. https://www.facebook.com/Lanegrashop

... AND MUCH MORE! Vermouth, records, books, comics, merchandising, etc.

Admission free. More information on: http://autoplacer.tumblr.com/

We invite you to bid farewell to 2019 with this exciting audiovisual event based on sound improvisation and projected images. Everything is brought together in an unreal Dada-like retrofuturist atmosphere combined with live experimentation by the multi-instrumentalist Severine Beata and the visual artist Beatriz Sánchez.

Together with Severine and Beatriz we will transform aluminium foil into thunder, pinecones into fire and tin cans into beats. Bring with you whatever you can find at home that we can use collectively to create a soundscape to accompany a series of visual games that arise from all kinds of gadgets: photos, objects, dolls, textures, engines...

Severine Beata is a multi-instrumentalist who experiments with the western concert flute, saxophone, synthesizer, drum machines, vocals... She is currently based in Andalusia, where she combines her work as a teacher with concerts and sound research.

Beatriz Sánchez is a drawing artist, performer, audiovisual creator and digital activist who works on many different levels, analysing the impact that heteronormative discourses and the information society have on us.

Twelve hours of non-stop live music featuring ten groups and five DJ collectives who have taken part in some of the previous nine annual events, and who will be returning to meet up again with the museum, with Móstoles and with the public.

CONCERTS

Alarido Mongólico. Formed in 2009 this group from Galicia is back again with a purpose: to take to another level a career already dotted with viral hits and collaborations with artists like the designer David Delfín or the film director Marçal Forés.

Image removed.

Alberto Acinas. A stalwart of the Spanish underground scene and a standard-bearer of reinterpreted folklore from the north of Spain from a contemporary optic close to punk, Alberto Acinas is presenting his latest album, Puntiagudo, released this September, live.
Image removed.

Caliza. Since being short-listed for the Autoplacer competition in 2014, Caliza has recorded two albums, Medianoche/Mediodía and Mar de cristal, and performed live alongside such disparate groups as Molly Nilsson, Cate Le Bon and Ataque de Caspa.

Image removed.

Doppeltgänger. Duo dedicated to the cold wave, the no-wave and minimalist and instrumental synth-punk.

Image removed.

John Grvy. Retrofuturist crooner on the busy crossroads between R&B, electronica, neo-soul and African roots. This eclecticism is readily evinced in G R I S, his latest mixtape, with stellar collaborations from Javiera Mena, Yung Beef and Brisa Fenoy.

Image removed.

Juanita y Los Feos. After ten years on the go Juanita y Los Feos bid farewell to music in summer 2015 after a tour of USA and Mexico. The band, key players in Spanish new wave punk, have risen from their grave to spend one more night partying.

Image removed.

Lorena Álvarez. Since she won the first edition of the Autoplacer competition back in 2010, until the recent release of her fourth album, Lorena’s career has overstepped the boundaries of traditional music thanks to her boundless creative imagination.

Image removed.

Ojo Último. Electronic bases mixed with elements of philosophy, psychology, politics, science and mythology to unfold a psychedelic universe and open up a door to a fascinating, crazy and incredibly addictive cosmos.

Image removed.

Salfumán. Sandra Rapulp’s handcrafted electronic pop is back with its signature sound, oscillating between synth-pop and ambient, strongly influenced by disco, R&B and 80s sounds. Impossible to pigeonhole in a single bit.

Image removed.

VVV. The winners of the Autoplacer competition in 2017 are back again with their euphoric and pessimist sound, caught between synth-pop and happy hardcore, to present us with their second album.

Image removed.

DANCE FLOOR

Abismal. Slvj (Salvaje) is a music producer, experienced MC and DJ from Madrid, who set up the Abismal project in 2010 with the intention of fusing experimental music with the visual and performing arts.

Image removed.

a_mal_gam_a. Made up by Diskoan and Josephine’s Soundscapes, the group works constantly with creators and music promotors far removed from ruling canons.

Image removed.

Caballito. Caballito is the name under which the DJs and producers Bigote and Grita operate, pioneers in Spain of the new tropical wave. It’s also the name of their label which promotes eclecticism based on good vibes and itchy feet.

Image removed.

Femur. Aitor Arch, a key DJ in Madrid’s underground electronic scene, set up Femur in 2011, as a party night and a record label focused on vintage electronic sounds.

Image removed.

Valle Eléctrico. Valle Eléctrico started off as a platform promoting the synthesizer with an epicentre in synth-pop. His DJ set alternates new urban movements with futurist combinations of glitch-hop, dancehall, alternative R&B and uncompromising pop.

// ADMISSION FREE + DONATION TO RED DE APOYO MUTUO DE MÓSTOLES //
// Book your ticket for 19 September (SOLD OUT) //
// Book your ticket for 26 September (SOLD OUT) //

Autoplacer is back for two days of concerts on the terrace at CA2M Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo. This year’s event will be very special and adapted to the so-called new normality.

This year’s festival will be taking all the safety measures recommended by health authorities for live music events. That’s why this year the festival will be held in the open space of the terrace, which will be decorated by the designers Prieto & Cuervo, and the size of the audience will be limited to ensure social distancing.

Likewise, to make sure that the numbers comply with the current health measures, tickets must be booked beforehand using the form to be found in our website. However, you can only book for one of the two days. Bookings will be accepted until reaching the limit.

Besides, this year Autoplacer is joining forces with Red de Apoyo Mutuo de Móstoles [Mostoles Mutual Support Network], a local independent self-run community organisation that provides mutual support among equals and manages a solidarity food bank. CA2M and the organisers of the festival encourage all the attendants to the concerts and the participating groups and collaborations to make a contribution to the food bank with basic food stuffs at the entrance to Centro de Arte Dos de Mayo on the two days of the event.

With concerts by:

SATURDAY 19
AJUAR | REBE | MORREO | PANTOCRÁTOR

SATURDAY 26
TZETZE | POLSEGUERA | SOMOS LA HERENCIA | TOYS SARASAS

With the collaborations of:

PRIETO & CUERVO (Set Design)

+ AUTOPLACER ROUGH-CUTS COMPETITION 2020
+ AUTOPLACER/CONJETURAR (Working Grup)

CONCERTS

SATURDAY 19 SEPTEMBER
Booking opens on Friday 4 September

Ajuar. Ajuar revives and revamps the music and dance genre of La Jota from Leon and Extremadura from a feminist angle. Ajuar is made up of Ana and Corazón, a tambourine and a mortar.

Image removed.

Rebe. Entering Rebe’s world is more than stepping into their liquid, evanescent, analogical, toy-like, sensual and supersoft bedroom pop. It also means wading into their disturbing aesthetics, lyrics and punctuated writing and into their baffling videos, all those things that make it difficult to boil Rebe down to just their ditties.

Image removed.

Morreo. Morreo is the Madrid-based Andalusian-rooted pop duo of Germán and Joseca. Following last year’s release of Cluedo, their first single, they have prepared a barrage of new melodies with guitar and a play of voices that bring to mind the mythical Los Brincos.

Image removed.

Pantocrator. A combo from Barcelona led by Marta Delmont and Marina Correa and their inexistent emotional control, with Xiri Romaní on drums, Rober Busquets on guitar, and a live sound that fuses powerpop and garage peppered with loutish realism. Maybe you don’t know you belong to the Ministry of the Basics, but they do.

Image removed.

 

SÁBADO 26 DE SEPTIEMBRE
Apertura de inscripciones: viernes 11 de septiembre

Tzetze. With around thirty concerts to their credit, Claire and Raúl are no shrinking violets. This duo focuses mainly on experimenting with rhythms through repetition and on compositional and stylistic disorder, leaving no room to talk about specific genres or exercises in style.

Image removed.

Polseguera. Everything Tomeu Mulet, Polseguera’s frontman, does has to do with loss, undermining any reality we believed to be solid. Their album Vida Grisa is like a still life painting created from an emotional wound, evoking memories which might be beautiful in themselves but are no longer alive: youth is long gone, replaced by an emotionally drained routine. The result is cold but wholly human.

Image removed.

Somos la herencia. Somos la Herencia is one of the best kept open secrets of Spain’s underground scene. The Madrileño band make their debut with Dolo, a sonic prayer book sure to become the soundtrack of a whole era. With a sound somewhere between the urgency of post-punk, experimental contemporary electronics and atmospheric dark-wave, they combine minimalist sound design with maximalist punk abrasion.

Image removed.

Toys Sarasas. After their first incarnation around 2000, Toys Sarasas regrouped in 2009 after seeing Sandra Montiel in action in Torremolinos. Their influences can best be described as Benidorm’s and Torremolinos’s best transvestites meet low-fi crust, hardcore, gothic and extreme metal. From Disrupt to Rocío Jurado, from Cheb Bello to Napalm Death and Niña Pastori’s first two albums.
