ARK (Arkestrated Rhythmachine Complexities) is a collective for post-representative sound formats. The collective consists of Johannes Ismaiel-Wendt, Malte Pelleter, Sebastian Kunas and others. ARK works on topics such as sound, beats and instruments, questioning cultural attributions and intertwining. It is about the drum pattern as a vehicle, rhythmic itineraries criss-crossing the Yellow Pacific and Black Atlantic, the invention of the Bossa Nova and the impossibility of a single-track story narrative.

ARK consists of more than 10 rhythm machines, 3 samplers, headphones and multi-channel audio and was produced by Sebastian Kunas (Production Audio Tracks) and Sarah-Indriyati Hardjowirogo (Spokeswoman).

From 1–16 March, a "mechanical" drum choir will perform at ifa-Galerie Berlin. Johannes Ismael-Wendt will give an introduction.
