Chris Corsano (US)
is an drummer who has been operating at the intersections of free improvisation, avant-rock, and noise music since the late '90s. He's worked with saxophonists like Joe McPhee, Paul Flaherty and Evan Parker; guitarists such as Jim O'Rourke, Sir Richard Bishop and Nels Cline; and also one-of-a-kind artists Björk and Jandek. His style incorporates high energy free improvising, more textural work, and augmenting the drum kit with everything from cello strings stretched across the skins to disassembled saxophone parts.

“Corsano, despite being arguably the most riotosly energetic and creative drummer in contemporary free jazz, does far more than merely bash his kit into submission. Playing loud does not mean abandoning subtlety, and Corsano’s sudden shifts of texture and dynamics are a wonder to behold” - The Wire

Mette Rasmussen (DEN)
is a Danish saxophone player living in Trondheim, Norway. As an improviser, she explores the natural rawness of the horn and dives into experimenting with the instrument's sonic and expressive capabilities, with and without preperations. She has collaborated with musicians such as Rudi Mahall, Alan Silva, Tobias Delius, Wilbert de Jode and Axel Dörner in addition to working with her own projects Saft and Trio Riot

Eric Arn (US)
American guitarist Eric Arn and his Primordial Undermind have tirelessly mined the nether regions of avant-rock for more than 20 years. His trajectory has grown and evolved from distorted, psychedelic rock overload to full-blown free drone music, and everything in between. Since settling in Vienna, Austria in 2005, Eric has continued to perform with the Undermind, as well as playing solo, in duos with Cam Deas, Stefan Kushima (Cruise Family), and Vanessa Arn, as a member of the Vienna Improvisers Orchestra, Tempel Solaire/Tempel Lunaire, in the Viennese backing band for Jandek, and as a regular featured player in Marco Eneidi's Nenuvi sessions at Celeste. His first solo album, 'Points of Fissure' was released in April 2013 on Feathered Coyote.

Bernadette Zeilinger (A)
Bernadette Zeilinger fällt durch die – sanfte, aber bestimmte - Radikalität ihrer musikalischen Ausdrucksmittel und ihren besonderen Spürsinn für das Spezifische einer bestimmten musikalischen Situation, dafür, im richtigen Moment das Richtige zu tun, auf.
(..) Ihre ausgeprägte und persönlich entwickelte Klangsprache zeugt von der Auseinandersetzung mit aktuellen kompositorischen Produktionen sowie mit verschiedensten improvisatorischen Tendenzen. Gediegenes Handwerk verbindet sie mit einer phantasievollen Klangvorstellung. In ihrem Spiel zeigt sich einmal mehr, dass der Reichtum und die Vielfalt akustischer Instrumente noch lange nicht ausgelotet sind. (Gunter Schneider)
