Hiro Kone is a New York based musician and producer: she uses a combination of hardware, synths, and modular to cultivate her sound – a visceral meditation on rhythm, noise, and melody that has seen her release on leading experimental labels including DAIS Records and BANK Records. No stranger to manipulating macabre disorientations into enchanting new shapes, her music exposes the unsettling and sublime. Taking a deconstructive approach she is known to draw upon a combination of modular synthesis, noise and field recordings. 

Ross Alexander is a multi-disciplinary artist and music producer based in Berlin working regularly in the field of experimental sound scape, field recording and sound installation in conjunction with his work as curator and event-producer. Ross’ live performances have seen him present his work in a number of different formats and constellations throughout the world. His work has been developed for presentation as installation in traditional gallery format and also in more experimental undertakings such as surround-sound or site specific sound sculpture. 

Dirar Kalash is a musician and sound artist whose work spans a wide range of musical and sonic practices within a variety of instrumental, compositional and improvisational contexts. Kalash also extends his practice into inter-disciplinary theoretical research. He has produced several solo and collaborative musical albums and is active as touring musician, in addition to that he also created several sound installations, live audio-visual performances, and photography projects.
