About the Performers:

Tim Blechmann (AT)
Tim Blechmann is an improviser and composer, using computer and loudspeakers as main instrument. His music is focused on static noise textures that are digitally generated and spatially projected in real-time. For live performances his preferred lineup is the duo with other improvising musician. Regular collaborators include Klaus Filip, Manuel Knapp, Seijiro Murayama and Conny Zenk among others.

Soviet Pop (CN)
A Sound-based Oscillator-Duo (Li Qing and Li Weisi), using analog synth and lo-fi equipments to make old sound in their first album The Dialogue. Now they`ve abandoned the keyboards, using only oscillators and patch cords, to play dirty oscillator punk songs. Sometimes they also play experimental compositions, pure noise or other nice shit.

The Language Lab (HK)
"The Language Lab" is a project led by visual designer Koo Park-kin and sound engineer Tse Kam-po. They believe that music is an inborn language and try to realize this by recording sonic experiments in varied environments. They would communicate in impromptu pieces with the unconventional use of musical instruments and audio equipment. They are convinced that a concert will come naturally in the process. Results from the current experiments show that this kind of music possesses features of such genres as movie soundtracks, avant-garde, dance, ethnic, rock and noise.
