FRANK BRETSCHNEIDER is a musician, composer and video artist based in Berlin. His work is known for precise sound placement, complex, interwoven rhythm structures and its minimal, flowing approach. Described as »abstract analogue pointilism«, »ambience for spaceports« or »hypnotic echochamber pulsebeat«, Bretschneider’s subtle and detailed music is echoed by his visuals: perfect translated realizations of the qualities found in music within visual phenomena. He is one of the founders of the influential raster-noton imprint.

ISOLDE TOUCH is the project of Asha Sheshadri, a multimedia artist working out of Southern California and New England. Her live performance hinges on the relationship between sonic and visual, through experimentation with computer, voice and video synthesis; harsh rhythmic elements enshrouded in layers of lush counterpoint. Like lulling a ghost out of a machine, her work illuminates the intersections between the soft and abrasive, the naturally-occurring and machine-generated.
