___ABOUT MARVIN'S DREAM
MONOM's second event of the AUTUMN SERIES welcomes Marvin's Dream. You are invited to dive into an immersive 4-dimensional fable that takes place in a future universe brimming with robots, aliens, and other inanimate objects. We follow the story of the robot Marvin, as they reflect their own existence and dreams of surprising adventure.
Marvin dreams of a world in which humans are not superior but just one of many possible forms of existence. This removal of hierarchy between humans and machines is mirrored in the story’s creation process. The script itself is entirely written by an open-source neural network that has learned to write from massive amounts of raw text from fairy tales, fables, and science fiction.
The story is narrated by Margaret, Thomash’s grandmother of 95 years, who is the most experienced of the group, having read stories to 3 generations of children and grandchildren. Her voice lends the story a warm, gentle and reassuring touch. The 4D soundtrack is created by the artists to match the universe dreamt by the artificial mind.
During and after the performance, the Voodoohop collective invites everyone for drinks and a party at MONOM Bar. After the main performances it will also be possible to listen to the Voodoohop artists Sound Spatialisation in the 4DSOUND Engine over a 48.9 multichannel omnidirectional sound system.

Alexandre Silveira aka Exz is a Brazilian musician who fuses electronic based rhythms with psychedelic tone colours and melodies.
Born and raised in São Paulo Alexandre started to perform as Exz in 2015 where he found a vibrant and growing music scene, at first with Voodoohop collective where he could explore lower tempos and later on with Mamba Negra where Exz started to experiment with different synthesizers and faster Bpms. Since then he has presented his live set in different festivals and clubs around the world such as Fusion Festival/ DE, Garbicz Festival/PL, Bahidora/MX, Dekmantel Festival/BR, Kater Blau and Sisyphos in Berlin, Public Works in San Francisco among others.
Currently living in Berlin Alexandre has taken the time during lockdown to further explore different electronic music patterns combined with psychedelic and delayed atmospheres.
As one of the founders of the multidisciplinary art collective Voodoohop, Thomash became deeply involved with the art and music scene of São Paulo, Brazil and over the years, all over the world. South american elements mixed with contemporary electronica are the essence of his work creating the feeling of being in a comfortable psychedelic dream.
Born in Germany, he lived in Brazil for 10 years which allowed him to absorb the exotic multicultural latin roots and combine them with the precision and minimalism of german electronic music.
Curiously, he also has a degree in artificial intelligence, which allows Thomash to create a unique style full of oddly spaced percussion and detuned synthesizers working within their own logic, as if in a machine-learning universe.
Die Wilde Jagd is the music project of producer and songwriter Sebastian Lee Philipp. Channeling minimalist, tenebrous intensity, Die Wilde Jagd’s music weaves a dense and atmospheric web of drama, romance, ecstasy and melancholy. The band has released three studio albums and several EPs, followed by numerous international tours and concerts.
Earning noticeable success with the eponymous 2015 debut album, Die Wilde Jagd’s breakthrough came with the release of 2018’s “Uhrwald Orange”. Its mix of psychedelic minimalism and German lyrics enthralled audiences and critics alike – the single “2000 Elefanten” receiving widespread radio and DJ support.
After two years of extensive touring in over 20 countries, the third album “Haut” was released in 2020, its single “Himmelfahrten” becoming another radio favorite. Philipp soon after composed the commission piece “Atem” for Roadburn Festival, which premiered in Tilburg on April 16th 2021.
4DSOUND is a studio exploring spatial sound as a medium. Since 2007, 4DSOUND has developed integrated hardware and software systems that provide a fully omnidirectional sound environment. These environments enable vivid sonic experiences that blur the boundaries between the real and the imagined: the world of sound we know, and a world beyond. Learn more about 4DSOUND technology.
