The transit lounge is the archetypal transit space, the point where the hyper-global + hyper-local coincide; a location which blurs traditional conceptions of geo-political boundaries, creating pockets of international space within the borders of individual nation-states. An in-between space, it exists relative to a fixed departure and arrival point, not to the area that surrounds it.

The Transit Lounge is a series of overlapping residencies for Australian and German artists and architects in Berlin. It is also a blog where themes relating to the project will develop, collaborations will be initiated and sustained, and observations on the city collected. The Transit Lounge invites you to participate in these transnational conversations by commenting on the blog.

The transit lounge is supported by Culturia and the DAZ

Govinda Lange is a composer, producer, DJ and audiovisual artist based in Canberra, Australia, who works under the pseudonym of Defunkt. His projects have included soundtracks for short films, animations, contemporary dance pieces, and live audiovisual performances. He is frequently found carting AV equipment into unusual spaces at odd times.

Govinda incorporates a mixture of organic rhythms, coupled with snatches of live field recordings, creating evolving soundscapes that conspire to bring listeners into a nostalgic and evocative headspace.

He has performed at many festivals and events in Australia, including Loud Is Boring, Canberra in 2006; Electrofringe, Newcastle in 2005; Canberra Fringe Festival in 2004; eXXentricity, Canberra in 2003; St Kilda Festival, Melbourne in 2002; going as far back as the Panopticon Conspiracy, Canberra in 1995. As an event supervisor, he has assisted in the coordination of the Collabrador space at Electrofringe in 2005; and the Melbourne Big Day Out, since 2002.

Recent work includes Gnostalgia, a collaborative improvised AV performance with the RTFM visual artists, presented at The Front Gallery in Canberra, as part of Loud Is Boring; field recordings of, and synthesis of, insect sounds for an animation work by Neville Black;
and the development of a networked audiovisual piece with Tim O'Loghlin, incorporating live video feeds from around the globe.
