// Helge S. Hammerbrook (HH)
Helge Siehl has been playing dark ambient and industrial music since 1987. He has mainly been active as
1000SCHOEN and as a part of Maeror Tri. He works as a musician and as a painter.
// ??????? (Berlin)
The berlin based experimental project Osscile works in the tension field of deconstructive electronic
music, minimalism and ritual noise.
??????? is the solo project of the sound researcher and experimentalist Melvin Neumann. Inspired by the avant-garde sounds of minimal music and drone, harsh neo industrial as well as the improvised power of noise music, Osscile´s sound textures condenses into layering that oscillates between unpredictability and compositions.
// Halber Ball (Berlin)
Dub and techno deconstructions at a constant 160 bpm.
// TAKKIDUDA (JP)
The meaning of “Takkiduda” is the power of the universe’s love, which evolves and leads everything to happiness.
We can just look forward and recognize that every single thing happening to us is happiness. We aim the coexistence with nature, civilization and machinery in a better balance.
Our performance is absolute improvisation such as most primitive style. We make our sounds based on the animal instinct of the natural human beings.
“Quruku” and “Ico” are imaginary performers, who are created by our programming. They record and reproduce sounds freely away from human intention. By joining them our music becomes more accidental and full of uncertainties.
Not only the music, we display digital images also impromptu besides the sounds to make our performance more impressive.
We try to create a work with the viewpoint of “experience of space”. We try to express with our performance the peaceful world filled of love with coexisting nature, civilization and machinery.

// B°TONG (CH)
Hostile soundscapes, noisy tectonics, drones and tones
Swiss/Swedish soundscape artist Chris Sigdell (formerly of German industrial group Ni?) melts the boundaries between ambient electronics and musique concréte. Since the 2005 inception of his solo project B°TONG, he has toured in 24 countries, performed at such diverse and renown festivals as Audio Art Festival (PL), Bruitisme (F), Kildemose Festivalen (DK), Lab30 (D), Les Digitales (CH), Norberg Festivalen (S), PNEM Sound Art Festival (NL), Shift (CH), Støy På Landet (N), Temple Of Silence (PL), all the while releasing acclaimed albums on genre-specific labels like Auf Abwegen, Drone Records, Reverse Alignment, Silken Tofu or Zoharum.
Besides performing with B°TONG, Chris composed and plays live the soundtrack to Vertikal – a contemporary performance piece by circus-artist Finn Jagd Andersen (Zirkus Gonzo), directed by Delia Dahinden. In a more conventional musical field he is also known as the bassist and singer in psyche-doom band the Leaden Fumes (ex-Phased). Chris is also to be seen in the well-known Swiss television series Der Bestatter – the episode: Spiel mit dem Feuer features him as the guitarist in a live band playing one of his own real songs…
