Stephan Bodzin (Live)

Stephan Bodzin has been a hugely influential figure within the global techno scene for years. The reason the German has endured where many had fallen by the wayside is because of his devotion to authenticity. “Without it, everything would appear to be nothing more than a hollow shell,” says the son of an experimental musician who is now a revered talent in his own right.

After starting out by composing music for several prestigious European theaters, Stephan Bodzin soon fell in love with nocturnal club sounds and began producing his own brand of techno. His productions are driving, & hypnotic with a very real and memorable sense of melody that sticks long in the mind. 

In the club Bodzin is an impressive live specialist who creates mesmerising, high impact soundtracks on the fly. Across all continents, there is barely a club or festival in the world worth its salt that he hasn’t headlined at some point or other.

Line-up: Stephan Bodzin (live), manthrax and more TBA

Bark Bark Disco's main singer songwriter Ian Schranz, also forms part of the indie-rock groups Beangrowers and The Shh.

Tom Van Maldere - Except for Access only

For his solo exhibition, except for access only at Malta Contemporary Art Tom Van Malderen presents a series of objects that due to denominations of scale, materiality and context sit somewhere between sculptural objects and architectural models - at a juncture between the field of architecture and that of art. While many of the reflections that have made their way in the exhibition can be traced back to architecture, they feel equally relevant and stimulating when brought into an art context.

The humorous exhibition title - except for access only - lifted off a DIY sign that was found in the Maltese countryside is a misconstrued phrase made up by someone who, so intent on denying access, merges ‘except for access’ and ‘access only’. The result is humorous, yet we are aware that it masks a graver gesture: territorialising public space. It is this vacillation between levity and gravity that marks Van Malderen’s tone throughout the exhibition.

Isolationism and segregation are further expl…

Jesus Christ Superstar

Jesus Christ Superstar is a 1970 rock opera with music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and lyrics by Tim Rice. The musical started as a rock opera concept album before its Broadway debut in 1971. The musical is sung-through, with no spoken dialogue. The story is loosely based on the Gospels' accounts of the last week of Jesus's life, beginning with the preparation for the arrival of Jesus and his disciples in Jerusalem and ending with the crucifixion. It depicts political and interpersonal struggles between Judas Iscariot and Jesus that are not present in the Bible.

The work's depiction offers a free interpretation of the psychology of Jesus and the other characters. A large part of the plot focuses on the character of Judas, who is depicted as a tragic figure dissatisfied with the direction in which Jesus steers his disciples. Contemporary attitudes and sensibilities, as well as slang, pervade the lyrics, and ironic allusions to modern life are scattered throughout the depiction of…

Mokadelic (it) play Gomorra

Italian post-rock outfit Mokadelic, renowned for their breathtaking soundtracks, besides their albums proper, will play two exclusive nights at the University Campus Theatre (ex MITP) in Valletta on the 23rd and 24th February.

In a rather unique experience for Malta, the five piece Rome-based band, who have scored soundtracks for Oscar-winning director Gabriele Salvatores amongst others, will play their soundtrack to the hit Italian TV series 'Gomorra' in its entirety; in what promises to be a special musical and visual experience.

The soundtrack to “Gomorra” is an emotionally intense musical narrative, including both spacious, melancholic atmospheres and extremely dense climaxes, all inspired by the haunting realism of the TV series.

Gomorra (Season 3 currently being shown on Sky Atlantic) is currently one of Italy's most explosive and successful TV shows to date. The acclaimed Italian television crime drama inspired by Roberto Saviano's 2008 best-selling book Gomorrah, …
