The Sons of God (Leif Elggren and Kent Tankred) work in the borderland between performance, installation, and music. Sound objects, pre-recorded compositions, physically demanding movements, the voice: all of this constitutes the foundation for an attempt to gain access to those rare moments when daily life merges with the heroic nature of the inner self.
The Sons of God | “Table Talk” live at the Lausanne Underground Film and Music Festival
The Cut Hands project was founded by William Bennett in 2007, heavily inspired by his fascination for Haitian voodoo, deploying Central African percussion in radical new ways, generating an intense sound unrivalled in its physical and emotional intensity. A classically trained musician, in 1980 at age 18 William Bennett became the founding member of the group Whitehouse and the original pioneer of extreme electronic music.

Pointillistic trance trailblazer, Lorenzo Senni, has been tirelessly exploring the less obvious possibilities of electronic composition and performance, ranging from the best use of lasers to the application of algorithmic methods in composition. As the visionary founder of Presto!? he released works from some of the most acclaimed contemporary artists, such as Florian Hecker, Marcus Schmickler, CM von Hausswolff, among others.
