Since late 1990s, Billy Roisz dealt intensively with video and sound. Her work focuses on  the links and gaps between visual and auditive perception. Roisz questions the interaction between sound and image, the interchangeability or unity of the electromagnetic signal in the generating machines which creates image or sound.

The realisation of her experiments takes place in live performances, single screen works and audio-visual installations, solo or in collaboration with musicians of experimental music and noise as well as composed new and old music, dance and theatre.

The berlin-based clarinetist and composer/performer Kai Fagaschinski focuses on a subtle musicality of sound and noise phenomena. As an autodidact he has developed an anomalous language on his instrument.

His music is rooted in abstractness, including increasingly an insidious expressivity and a pre-melodic quality. He works on the borderline of composition and improvisation, with a preference for long-term collaborations.

German trumpeter Axel Dörner is first and foremost a group player. Despite a growing discography and a very busy performance schedule, he is rarely seen leading a session or presenting a solo album.

Yet, he has developed one of the most unique voices in free improvisation. Synchronized with other European horn players like Radu Malfatti, John Butcher, and Franz Hautzinger, he developed a completely different language for the trumpet in the late ‘90s, starting anew by focusing on the sound of his breath.

With enough amplification, the most microscopic gestures sound like electronic flurries.

But what distinguishes Dörner from the aforementioned players is that instead of turning this “new way” into a religion, he integrated it into his arsenal and continued to perform with maximalist free jazz groups.
