• This winter, French contemporary artist and composer Céleste Boursier-Mougenot will present his monumental installation “from here to ear”. A 600-m2 industrial exhibition hall will be transformed into a giant walk-through aviary where 88 living zebra finches will live. Boursier-Mougenot has won worldwide recognition with his vast, acoustic installations that take their starting point in nature and the rhythms of everyday life – two aspects that are also evident in the work now about to be shown at CC.

• DJ Sundae. From Paris we are excited to present Laurent Richard aka Dj Sundae. Laurent, as well as being the best unknown DJ he also runs a little label called Hollie Records. To this date they`ve released music from Chilean Psyche folk artist Ocelote Rojo, Disco Rock Japanese band Phnom Penh and unearthed material from Arthur Russell and Steven Hall. But more than a crate digger, he is a digger, a certifiable gold digger which anyone who’s listened to his ‘No Weapon Is Absolute’ show on Rinse France which he co-hosts with Cosmo Vitelli can attest to. Recently Laurent put together the beautiful compilation ‘Sky Girl’, which contains rather unheard folk-pop and new wave songs from the period between 1961 to 1991. This should serve as the perfect musical appetizer.

• Mikkel Oliver Brask. is a sound designer and DJ with a great ear for musical detail. He has thrown an impressive record of parties by the name ‘Boogie At The Opera’ at Christiania’s famed venue, The Opera. The notorious dance parties have presented Copenhagen with the likes of Orpheu the Wizard, Steele Bonus and Vladimir Ivkovic. In his DJ-sets Mikkel strive to challenge the norms of club music and to present the audience with unexpected tunes.
