Epidemics and pandemics are rapidly spread infectious diseases. An epidemic occurs when host immunity to a pathogen or newly emerging pathogen is suddenly reduced below that found in the endemic equilibrium and the transmission threshold is exceeded.
Great number of people. Short period of time. Dramatic mortality results.
Throughout human history, plague - a contagious bacterial disease & creator of religious, social and economic upheavals, was used as biological weapon to reduce the world population and cleanse the society.
Spread the plague. Infect the world. Enter Liber Null.
Liber Null Berlin returns for a second time in Athens few months after the explosive virgin rite in Temple last December, this time curating an event in collaboration with the beloved Pi Electronics Label.

- Phase Fatale
Phase Fatale is the techno project of Berlin-based DJ and producer Hayden Payne. Originally from New York, Payne explored the post-punk/coldwave world through various projects over the course of a decade. Started in 2014, Phase Fatale served as an outlet for his own interpretation of darker and industrial-fused techno. Defined by rigid drum programming, cutting synthesizers and bleak samples, he has created a sound imprint that has transformed into a new electronic identity. This joining of sinister productions and cold atmospherics sculpt the landscape of future war.Phase Fatale has performed heavily throughout the world with his extended DJ sets and cathartic live performances. He released two EPs in 2016 on Jealous God and presented a live collaboration with Silent Servant during the label’s showcase at Berlin Atonal. These events were followed up with an EP on Unterton, the sublabel of Berghain’s imprint Ostgut Ton. Released to coincide with his regular appearances at the Berlin nightclub, the Anubis 12’’ continues to delve into Payne’s penchant for combining post-industrial textures with techno rhythms. In Fall 2017, Hospital Productions will release Phase Fatale’s first full length album, Redeemer, along with an extended mix 12’’ of edits created together with Silent Servant. Redeemer expands upon Payne’s multitude of influences and pushes them further, deeper and harder than ever before, laying the groundwork for new mutations in electronic music.
Without progress, music becomes repetitive and trivial. For this reason, Ontal set aside the cast-iron principles of today’s genres and committed to the world of imagination. In this world, there is no place for the constantly recycled concepts of darkness and destruction that dominate certain genres. Neither is there place for the hedonistic simplicity of other genres. In fact, there is no place for genres at all. Progress and future are the only focus. The sound of Ontal found its home on labels such as HANDS, Mord Records, π electronics, Noiztank and more. The story continues…

Unhuman was founded as a noise project in 2012 in Athens with the release of his first tape, entitled Emperor Black on Species Productions and then a split tape with To The Lovers Farewell on Red Venice Records. Delving deeper into radical noise, experimental and industrial music, a whole new world of possibilities opened up to him when he moved to Berlin in 2012. After founding the Lärm-Alarm-Lärm festival, he combined the idea of underground music and more experiential events going onto organize workshops which encompassed experimental & interactive audio/visual performances in a project space called Shift which led to his current project Liber Null Berlin which unifies the freedom of arts in a conceptual event and a record label.

- Nullam Rem Natam
Originating from the Latin phrase “nullam rem natam”- means no thing born, an emphatic idiom for nothing. Nullam Rem Natam create and destroy. Their actions are reactions. Their reason is absurd and absurd is chaos. Unfolding secrets, revealing fears, abusing the psyche. Hunters of intensity and seekers of purgation. An eternal circle, the serpent devouring its tail. Nullam Rem Natam are a group of actionists, composed in Berlin in 2016. As resident artists of Liber Null Berlin, they commit visual sins and provoke the subconscious. Ignoring the limits and obeying to instincts, they practice and perform their experiments using sacramental and ceremonial methods.
