Artmospheric comes out from a symbiosis between Art and Atmosphere. Our main objective is to bring contemporary arts closer to the natural environment in order to raise public awareness of actual issues in that field, such as global warming or mass consumption.
Since 2006, Artmospheric and "Open Mind" Foundation have organized various cultural events in the field of contemporary arts, such as the annual Artmospheric Festival, conceptual concerts, exhibitions, multimedia performances and installations, etc.
Our events usually take place in open nature throughout Bulgarian mountains. The musical program consists of a fine selection of live electronic musical projects, fading from atmosphere ambient textures during day to intelligent dance music during night.
During the years, Artmospheric Festival has evolved as a regional leading event for intelligent electronic music and alternative culture. It is also the first Bulgarian open air, which regularly takes care of the separation and recycling of its waste.
The musical program consists of a fine selection of live electronic musical projects, fading from atmosphere ambient textures during day to intelligent dance music during night. Some of our dear friends who have already played at Artmospheric are Aes Dana (Fr), Alan Backdrop (It), Ambient Anarchist (Bg), AodioiboA (De), Brando Lupi (It), Dave Twomey aka Tr nch (UK), Donato Dozzy (It), Gabriel Le Mar (De), Ishq (UK), J-Lab (UK), Kalumet (Hu), Lackluster (Fin), natural/electronic.system. (It), Planet Boelex (Fin), Second Face (Hu), Sensient (Au), Taj Mahal (Fr), Tengui (UK), Vataff Project (Bg), Yvat (Ro) and many more.
Artmospheric events are also supporting non-commercial alternative artists united in their quest for newer forms and perceptions towards better coexistence and respect for nature.
Monolake aka Robert HenkeImbalance Computer Music, Germany
Donato DozzyAquaplano / Further Records, Italy
Robert Henke, born in Munich, Germany, builds and operates machines to produce art.
Amazed and inspired by the constantly expanding possibilities of applied computer science and technology, Henke explores new territories between musical composition, performance and installation. Alongside diving deeply into aesthetic concepts, the creation of his own instruments and tools is an important and integral part of his artistic process.
His works are concerned with volume, power and impact, the tension between silence and noise, darkness and light, and about the exploration and manipulation of real and virtual spaces. They expose carefully shaped details and gradual changes of repeating structures in different time scales.
Henke is a pioneer of multichannel sound, using methods and systems like wave field synthesis and ambisonics to create situations of total immersion, expanding the sonic experience of his performances beyond of what can be reproduced at home.
During the last decade, Henke's artistic explorations more and more expanded from his initial focus on music towards the field of installation, both sound based and audio-visual. His installations, internet based audiovisual performances and concerts have been presented at Tate Modern London, the Centre Pompidou Paris, Le Lieu Unique Nantes, PS-1 New York, MUDAM Luxembourg, MAK Vienna and on countless festivals.
Henke’s interest in the combination of art and technology is also evident in his contributions to the development of the music software 'Ableton Live'. Since Ableton’s founding in 1999, he has been central to the development of Live, which became the standard tool for electronic music production and completely redefined the performance practice of electronic music.
He writes and lectures about sound and the creative use of computers, and holds a professorship in sound design at the Berlin University of Arts.
For 2013 he has been selected as Mohr Visiting Artist at the music department of Stanford University, where he will be teaching a class in computer music composition and performance.

Brando LupiDetune Records / Dewtone, Italy
In recent years Donato Dozzy has emerged as one of the leading contemporary techno DJs. He has developed a strong following for his distinctive tripping, hypnotic take on techno music. Ignoring fads and trends, Dozzy's approach to electronic music – both as a DJ and as a producer – is based on a deep understanding of what has come before him. Being introduced to Disco, Italo, Reggae, Dub and other forms of electronic music at an early age, he first began exploring DJ'ing in 1983 under the mentorship of a DJ from Bari, called Maurizio Laurentaci. By the late 1980s he was discovering techno and acid with his friend Leo (now producing house music under the name Lerosa).
Despite his love for electronic music, he continued his studies, eventually graduating from the University of Rome with a Doctorate in Politics. This education, combined with his encyclopedic knowledge of music, later earned him the nickname of "The Professor". In 1999, he began an ongoing residency at the famous Brancaleone club in Rome, where he further honed his skills as a DJ. In 2001, he was as part of the band, The Kitchen Tools, which were signed to Virgin records and had some commercial success in Italy.
This was not enough to satisfy Dozzy, and in 2004 he moved to Berlin. From 2004 to 2006, Dozzy held a residency at Panorama Bar, where extended sets at the end of long nights of partying allowed him to further develop his slow-burning, hypnotic groove.
A watershed moment in his career came in 2007 when he was invited to play at the Labyrinth festival, an outdoor electronic music festival in Japan. While 2007 went well, its main purpose was laying the foundations for his return in 2008, when Dozzy would play the closing set at Labyrinth. It would prove to be a turning point for Dozzy, as he played one of the most memorable sets of techno that had ever been witnessed at the festival. This set went on to be podcasted by mnml.ssgs and Donato's popularlity grew exponentially.
Since then, Dozzy has quickly developed as a producer and a DJ, since playing at many of the most important clubs around the world, such as Berghain and Fabric. He has become popular not only for his DJing, but also because of his distinctive productions: like his sets, they explore the trippier side of acid, techno and ambient. In 2008, after experimenting with his first label (Dozzy Records), he started Aquaplano, a label that has quickly gained a cult following for its limited pressings and high quality mix of ambient and techno. He has released on a wide range of other labels, including: Mental Groove, Curle, Time to Express, Mule, Further, and Prologue.
In 2010 he completed his debut album, "K", which received high praise. He played live for the first time at the 2011 Labyrinth festival as Voices from the Lake (with Neel). Much like the music he plays and produces, Donato Dozzy is in no rush: developing slowly, moving further and deeper. Having found considerable success as a DJ and producer, Dozzy is not searching for fame or hype, he just continues to look or those special transcendental moments that can be created through electronic music.

NessM_REC / Frames of Thought / The Gods Planet, Italy
Born and bred in Michigan, and currently based in Berlin, Eric Cloutier is one of a new generation of American DJs bridging the gap between dance music's past and its future. His sets have a sprawling depth and sophistication that fuses the brooding intensity of tripping techno with the mechanic funk of contemporary house.
Cloutier started spinning records in 1996, quickly establishing himself in Detroit's competitive local scene, holding down residencies at The Necto and prominent afterhours spot The Works. This led to a job booking Oslo, where he brought the likes of Richie Hawtin, Luciano and Michael Mayer to town, as well as handing out residencies to local legends Three Chairs and Stacey Pullen.
In 2006, Cloutier made the jump to New York and quickly established himself, earning a residency at the premiere monthly techno night The Bunker and mid-week soiree Den of Thieves. He's also begun his own night, Down, in which he often stretches out to play lengthy sets that showcase his range, effortlessly threading together deeper shades of house and dub-infused techno. Word has been spreading too: 2009 saw Cloutier recording two mixes for the mnml ssgs podcast series, beginning to work in the studio for the first time on his own material, making his European DJing debut and getting tapped to play at Japan's renowned Labyrinth Festival. That latter honor may be the most telling of all: Only a select few are asked to spin at Labyrinth. (It's the provenance of studious selectors like Daniel Bell, Donato Dozzy and Peter Van Hoesen.) To not only spin in their company, but to have ably held his own should tell you all you need to know about Eric Cloutier: He's a DJ for whom quality—above all else—is the watchword.

AuroraX seeks to combine wavelengths of perception into a waterfall of energized audible harmony which drifts listeners to one of those scales of worlds, where no rules but the flow of freely instigated minds exist.

Genda liveCrackling Claps
In 2006, EXo becomes the first DJ to pioneer the fresh dubstep genre in Bulgaria - the audience is shocked, yet fascinated by the unexpected beat and bass pressure. That’s enough of a reason for dubstep to become EXo’s primary focus in the years to come. Consequently he proves himself as the leading dubstep DJ in the country – always with up to date selection of uncompromising sound quality.
Up to date EXo has presented dubstep on more than 70 venues, and for the listening pleasure of Bulgarian, Romanian and Greek audiences. He has performed on one stage with artists like MRK1, Foreign Beggars, Bar9, Mary Anne Hobbs, Luke Envoy, et. al. In 2007, on two big venues, HMSU’s Summer Open-air Festival 2007 and at Drum and Jazz 2007, EXo presented his experimental live dubstep project together with popular drummer Victor Alexandrov (known from the Liquid Pension progressive band). At the Aniventure 2010 Festival he presented an on stage act accompanied by the youth talent cello performer Magdalena Petrovitch.
Behind the codename EXo (mind the capital X) we find Gheorghi Penkov - a person known for his numerous activities, both in art and science. Born in 1980, he already has a definite musical experience - as a DJ, producer, promoter, music journalist and beatbox/darbuka performer.
EXo’s interest in music production and mixing dates back to 1995 when he initially got interested in interactive multimedia demos. Together with friend Martin Hristov, Gheorghi starts the demo group Ancient Media, that in consequently released the two demos – Idleness (’96) and Water Illusions (‘97). Demos are highly technological short video productions (10 mins) that render audio and video in real time.
This early interest in multimedia triggers EXo’s passion for electronic music. Between 1998-2001 he produces ambient and downtemp tracks under the SentagriS moniker. Unfortunately most of these never get released, since in 90s there is no label or company interested in such sound in Bulgaria,... net-labels are yet to come. Years later, two of these tracks are included in the digital releases Wamoxyn (2003, Z-dimension) and Acnod Tucmod Tipo (2007, Contone Records).
EXo joins H.M.S.U. by appointment with Dimitar “Targy” Dimitrov, and is with the organization since it’s very first days. By that time he's a junior drum and bass DJ, one that in the course of time gets totally devoted to the classic drum and bass (it's what we nowadays call oldskool). After H.M.S.U’s third openair festival EXo’s focus starts to slowly shift towards jungle, and eventually dub music. During his sporadic 2003-2005 appearances on H.M.S.U. events he selects mostly roots and tech dub. Then suddenly, in 2005, he goes back to dub and eventually reaches dubstep - a new sound that fundamentally changes his view on bass music, and puts his musical roaming to an end.

Genda (Stanislav Genadiev) is a professional artist with an extensive experience in contemporary dance performance and production. Having performed throughout Europe with the dance companies Linga and Alias, he later went on to work independently as a choreographer and a co-founder of the art collective Kinesthetic Project with which he co-produced a number of pieces that were received with acclaim by the regional audience as well as on several international art festivals.
He developed a very distinct style which, through carefully selected and minimalistic movements of the human body, draws analogies to natural and social processes and brings the audience to altered states of consciousness.
This artistic aesthetic is quite apparent in Genda’s work also as a music producer, where he concentrates on evolving a simple idea and taking it through a range of phases of deconstruction. Stylistically, he draws inspiration from UK bass music and broken beat, and also from classic jazz and fusion. In his pieces he combines sampled and electronic instrumentation as well as a range of field recorded sounds.
Since 2013 member of the label "Crackling Claps".
