Andreas Voccia is a musician and video artist based in Berlin. Originally a trained jazz guitar player, he now works with a modular synthesizer to implement compositional practices from contemporary classical music in an improvisational and responsive environment. Besides his solo work, he is currently involved in several projects with musicians from the experimental and free jazz scenes. In his music he looks into abstract principles like movement, pattern, space, time, and how everything is interwoven with each other through resonance processes, in order to approach the fundamental question of the nature/essence of Reality. His main interest is to find in all the complex systems a poetic view which aims to draw out the tension betweeen the inside and the outside.

Her work is diverse and expressed through several different experimental music projects based on improvisation : live performances, sound installations, electroacoustic compositions, music scores for dance, performance, films, visual artists and photo documentaries.
Passionate phonographer and noise lover, she is always looking for new sonic sources in her worldwide travels, exploring the possibilities of sound capturing in specifically chosen contexts, working with different recording devices. She oscillates between the purity of the recordings and a special attraction for archaic, lo-fi machines. She uses that sonic collection – in an experimental process – as her raw material, an infinite source of rhythms and colors which she shapes with a real time sound treatment software – real time being the essential element of her spontaneous and chaotic approach. She digs in the sound – intruding in the detail – exploring in search of new textures of raw sounds.

Marco Donnarumma (DE) is an artist, performer, stage director and scholar weaving together contemporary performance, new media art and interactive computer music since the early 2000s. He manipulates bodies, creates choreographies, engineers machines and composes sounds, thus combining disciplines, media and technology into an oneiric, sensual, uncompromising aesthetics. He is internationally acknowledged for solo performances, stage productions and installations that defy genres, and where the body becomes a morphing language to speak critically of ritual, power and technology.
