Farmers Manual are a radical electronic and visual arts group formed in Vienna in the early 1990s. The group are renowned for their ‘chaos-particle-accelerating’ computer music, released on electronic music labels such as Mego, TRAY and OR. The group’s live events are often described as ‘anti-performances’ – long drawn-out domestic happenings, featuring members of the group playing and improving on various software programmes.
After a 10 year hiatus, Russell Haswell brought the group back in 2016 to perform outstanding shows at Cafe Oto and at Atonal Festival Berlin. This will be a rare chance to catch the group live.
“the farmers manual collective represents media art at its most anarchistic”. Anton Nikkilä
