A valve releases pressure when being opened.

VENTIL is the german word for valve. It is also the name of the collaboration of five artists working in the overlapping fields of sound, vision and movement, pushing the concept of a live band into a new territory. Founding members Peter Kutin (guitar, electronics) and Flo Kindlinger (guitar, bass synthesizer) joined forces with Katharina Ernst on drums, Michael Lahner on synthesizers and visual artist Conny Zenk in 2014. They released their debut album in May 2015 on VENTIL RECORDS and immediately toured venues and festivals such as Donaufestival (Krems), Control Club (Bucharest), Festival Météo (Mulhouse), Unlimited (Wels), Konfrontationen (Nickelsdorf), A-Synth (St Gallen) and many more. 
VENTILs live shows evoke an immersive maelstrom with a sonic and visual intensity reaching zones not comparable to common club aesthetics, merging inspiration from Techno, Industrial and Avantgarde - a powerful A/V live act that impressively bridges the gap between acoustic and electronic music.
