More details about performances:

"Code, Chains and sCreams"
This is a concert with live coding, live sampling and instrumental wizardry. Music is coded while you watch, air blown and whistled and acoustic sounds sampled and processed while you listen. All in the NOW.

Felipe Ignacio Noriega - live coding
Robert van Heumen - live sampling
Oguz Buyukberber - bass clarinet
A variation of physical musical controllers, both electronic and acoustic. Intricate interplay between the bass clarinet and a laptop-instrument sampling the acoustic sound in split-second interaction. All the while code is being built on-screen to generate beats, tones and effects, interspresed with humor and interaction between the players and the audience.

KANG [aka Ji Youn Kang] a solo performer in 'true hard core experimental abstract ritualistic primitive' music based in Den Haag, The Netherlands. Her act leaves nothing to be desired on the need of the mental void by offering a heavy, empowered, yet detailed noisy environment using a variety of media including handmade analog devices, acoustic instruments, and computer.

Erfan Abdi
Erfan Abdi takes advantage of the possibilities offered by DIY technology, and constructs his instruments from found or re-purposed material, seeking new ways of relating to the world of production and consumption. He researches the concept of active perception in the context of performing arts, investigating the interactions between performer, instrument and audience.

Martijn Barendregt
Martin's main subject is feedback-systems in both the digital and analogue domain. A great deal of his oeuvre consists of improvisations where either digital or analogue forms of feedback are used as the basis of his performances.
