Incompetence Label Night
«Incompetence» is a label and creative community that brings together like-minded musicians who practice a multidisciplinary approach. For each artist, visual and ideological components are equal to music and songs.
So concerts are often transformed into performances, and performances and music/live videos are often artistic statements. «Incompetence» supports a creative method based on improvisation and absurdity, this can be heard in almost any release by artists and friends of the label.
Inturist is an alter ego of Evgeny Shmukler (Gorbunov). He explores post-Soviet trauma and transfers memories of it to contemporary context and now to the context of other countries. The approach of Inturist is based on improvisation. Stylistically the project’s music is close to the Soviet underground (Soviet new wave, post-punk, free jazz, etc.). The project’s lineup is constantly changing, from a solo act or duet to a four-piece band. In addition to his musical work, Inturist is a theatrical project; his latest album is a radio play called “Stranger,” a full-fledged absurdist piece where voices and narrative are intertwined with abstract musical ornament.
Dima Midborn is an avant-rock project of Tel-Aviv-based musician who takes a minimalist approach to music: he recorded his first album using only three instruments – a bass, voice and a drum machine. His concerts are based equally on songs and improvisation, whether it is a three-piece band or a solo performance with a bass and a drum machine. The music draws inspiration from New York No-Wave bands of the 80s.
Alien Delon is the solo electro/new-wave project of Moscow/Tel-Aviv based Ilya Dmitriev. He produced and participated in various projects over the years, such as POEXXXALI, LAVA, CELEBRINE, JEWRHYTHMICS to name a few. His solo live set highly inspired by his favourite dutch scene of the early 2000’s, such as Legowelt, Orgue Electronique and Dopplereffekt.
