*Lionel Marchetti* is an electroacoustic improviser and musique concrète
composer. Initially self-taught, Marchetti studied with Xavier Garcia in
Grenoble. A scholar, he later worked at the CFMI (Lyon) and INA-GRM studios
(Paris), and published a book on composer Michel Chion. In the mid-1990s
Marchetti was one of a handful of artists who took electroacoustic music
out of the academic studio and into the realm of free improvisation, using
a live set-up with microphones, small speakers, tape recorders and radio.
As an improviser he performs in his long-standing duo with Jérôme
Noetinger, in the audio-visual project Le Cube, with influential collective
Archipel, and with dancer Yôko Higashi. In his studio work he incorporates
sound collage and electroacoustic composition, although the level of poetry
and refusal of genre boundaries in his music puts him closer to Kristoff K.

*Gert-Jan Prins* has been known for twenty years as one of the most
challenging sound artists in the Netherlands and established himself as one
of the central electronic performers in improvised music. His unique
self-developed live-electronics make use of radio and transmitter
technology, and create sounds with great physical energy. Prins focuses on
percussive and environmental noise creating a music that’s characterized by
pure rawness in volume and sound, but also utilizing subtlety in color
through specific use of scraping, rasping and other noise sounds. Prins is
a member of MIMEO and collaborates with, Thomas Lehn, Thomas Ankersmit, Cor
Fuhler (The Flirts), Peter Rehberg and Fennesz. He has performed throughout
Europe and the Americas. gjp.info

area which is constantly stretching the borders of what is supposed to be
DJ mixing, free improvisation and composed
