The sound creators, vocal manipulators and music composers of HekLab, which has its home in GT22, have played and performed at many festivals in Slovenia in the last two years. The selection from the 2019/2020 archive offers us a pleasant conclusion to the 26th MFRU and heralds a peaceful leap into 2021.
