Alberto De Campo (AT) Berlin - Computer Improvisation
Alberto de Campo has studied classical composition, jazz guitar, and  
electronic music in Austria and the US. After working at UC Santa  
Barbara, designing experimental software instruments with Curtis  
Roads, he taught at Media Arts Academy Cologne, the Institute for  
Electronic Music in Graz, and at TU Berlin. He held a professorship  
for Music Informatics at Music University Duesseldorf, and currently  
is Professor for Generative Art at Arts Univ. Berlin.
He plays with powerbooks_unplugged (just in time programming on mostly  
unamplified laptops); improvisation groups with acoustic instruments  
such as Quiet Noise Quartet, Syntopia Ensemble, and ad hoc  
constellations; electronic music with BlippooHazard (four musicians  
playing the Blippoo Box, a hardware synth by Rob Hordijk).
Recent projects include creating software instruments and sound  
installations with Florian Hecker, e.g. 'No Night No Day' at Biennale  
Venice, and AuditoryObjects (Bordeaux), and collaborating with Marcus  
Schmickler and Carsten Goertz on "Bonner Durchmusterung", a project  
involving sonification und visualisation of atronomical data.

DJ Sniff (JP) from steim/Amsterdam - Experimental Turntablist
believes in the instrumental autonomy of the turntable and the  
musicianship of the DJ. He is a turntable musician working in the  
field of improvised and experimental music. His music focuses on the  
live reconstruction and narratization of the phonographically  
amplified - the music, the sound, the technology and the past. To  
achieve this, he uses a unique setup consisting of hand-made hardware  
interfaces and a custom Max/MSP software along with one turntable and  
DJ mixer. He is also a concert/event curator for electronic music and  
a researcher of music technology. Since 2005 he has been involved with  
STEIM's (Studio for Electro-Instrumental Music, Amsterdam) R&D lab.  
 From 2007 on, he is STEIM's Artistic Director, curating public events  
and representing the institution through performances and lectures.
dj sniff regularly performs with computer musician Yutaka Makino as  
Audile and with saxophonist Keir Neuringer and Bassist Raed Yassin.

EVOL (ES) from Barcelona - Extreme Computer Music Cell
EVOL is a computer music cell started in Barcelona in 1996. Their work  
has been released on internationally acclaimed record labels such as  
Mego, Entr'acte, Lucky Kitchen, Diskono, Scarcelight, Antifrost,  
fals.ch or their own ALKU.
In 2003 the group started a series of electroacoustic pieces entitled  
'Punani' which addresses some of the main aspects of their work,  
namely: algorithmic composition, noise, psychedelia, system  
trajectories and the musical application of fractal geometry and other  
mathematical phenomena, somewhere in between Denis Smalley's concept  
of "spectromorphology", black magic and what Agostino Di Scipio called  
"functional iteration synthesis". Recently they have released 'Punani  
Xerrameca', a 10" on ALKU, and 'Fart Synthesis' a cassette on Presto!?

Kaffe Matthews (UK) from London - 8 Multichannel Performance
Kaffe Matthews was born in Essex, England, and lives and works in  
London. Since 1996 she has been making new electro-acoustic music  
through a system of self designed software matrices through which she  
pulls and pushes different sounds live. The variety of sounds, things  
and places she has worked with have ranged from self played violin and  
theremin, sounds of spaces, kite strings on an uninhabited Scottish  
Island, flight data from NASA scientists, Scottish and Irish pipers,  
melting ice in Quebec, the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, vibrating  
wires in the West Australian outback and recently a Vietnamese  
monochord and seaside sounds processed with 11 year olds to be  
dispersed by visitor pedalled bicycles. She has just returned from a  
month of working with sharks and conservation scientists on the  
Galapagos Islands.

Suk-Jun Kim (KR) Berlin - Imaginary Electroacoustic Music
A Korean Composer whose main output is electroacoustic music, Suk-Jun  
Kim’s music focuses mainly on the sense of places that are fantastic,  
imaginary, magical, and realistic, where listeners can visit, stop by,  
and dwell on. His music has received a number of international awards:  
Métamorphoses (2000 & 2008), Regional Composition Prize at 2008 ICMC  
in Belfast, CIMESP (2007), Bourges (2001), ASCAP/SEAMUS Student  
Commission Competition (2001) as well as mentions and finalists in  
MUSICA VIVA (2005) and MUSICA NOVA (2002 & 2005).
He now lives in Berlin as an Aritist-in-Residence composer at DAAD.
His research concentrates on listening and imagining in  
electroacoustic music and a framework based on ‘acousmatic reasoning,’  
a listening process using both spectromorphological and semiotic  
listening modes, which listeners of electroacoustic music employ to  
‘make sense’ out of the acousmatic experiences.

AUSREIHE is an independent organization dedicated to experimental  
electronic/computer music, founded in Berlin, Germany 2009.

NK is dedicated to Sound Art practices, situated at Elsenstr 52 in the
