VENTIL is an energetic audiovisual band combining delicate, shimmering and harsh sonic-particles with powerful and yet complex rhythmic-structures that are visually framed by live generated video- / light-architecture. Overlapping the fields of sound & vision in their very unique & aesthetic manner, VENTIL left an impact on audiences in various contexts – ranging from Jazz to Club and SoundArt Festivals.
Their live-show evokes an immersive maelstrom of sonic and visual intensities, manifesting into a music-monolith based on influences drawn from Industrial, Soundart, Techno, Tribal and Shamanism.
The Band was founded by the acclaimed sound-art duo and producers kutin|kindlinger who teamed up with the charismatic drummer Katharina Ernst, Michael Lahner on synthesizers and the virtuos visual artist Conny Zenk.
VENTIL performed at venues and festivals such as Donaufestival (Krems), Control Club (Bucharest), Festival Météo (Mulhouse), Saint Ghetto Festival (Bern), Unlimited (Wels), Real Deal (Vienna), Konfrontationen (Nickelsdorf), A-Synth (St Gallen), Festival du nouveau cinéma (Montreal) and many more.
