Jeyong Jung (South Korea, 1981) is a computer/electronic music composer who develops probabilistic algorithms and explores dynamic systems built upon them. Being non-standard has been his stance on music composition since studying at the Institute of Sonology, and he has been attempting to create a mapping between things usually not associated with each other, and use it in composition processes.
KTONIOS’ (Italy, 1989) music is based on the deconstruction and reconstruction of the traditional dance “tammurriata” from Campania, Italy and mixing it with minimal techno. They use a combination of modular synthesiser and DIY software instruments to reinterpret this musical tradition, with a particular focus on improvisation.
antiselector (US, 1989) will close the event with a DJ-set that features an energetic mix of electro, ghettotech, footwork and breakbeats.
