Motoko Honda is a concert pianist, composer, and sound artist who has created a distinctive sound through her holistic approach to music, and her exceptional sensitivity in relating to other art forms and technologies. Employing a "virtuoso technique paired with her intensely imaginative mind" (Susan Dirende, L.A. Splash Magazine), and with stylistic influences ranging from jazz to Indonesian music to contemporary prepared piano with electronics, Motoko's compositions and structured improvisations are intended to affect the skin, organs and minds of the listener rather than simple recitations of rhythmic and harmonic themes. Called both a "keyboard alchemist" (Chris Barton, L.A. Times), and the "embodiment of a muse" (Greg Burk, Metaljazz), Motoko's performances transport audiences on sonic adventures that transcend the boundaries and conventions of contemporary music.

xname aka Eleonora Oreggia
London based conceptual electronic artist from Milan, she makes performances and interactive installations. Her live compositions transform light and other electromagnetic frequencies in sound waves through self built synthetizers and complex semi chaotic machines.
She is currently associated with the Augmented Instruments Laboratory at Queen Mary University where she is developing electronic musical instruments within the Antennas & Electromagnetics Group. She is also the founder of Nebularosa, a record label promoting experimental electronic music that challenges the established modes of music production.

Anna Lord is a choreographer, movement improviser and performance artist on the quest to find utopian ways of coexisting on the planet and beyond. Deconstructing gender identities and roles. Striving to getting rid of stifling behaviours around furniture and in human interaction. Dancing without cartilage and functioning ligaments they intend to besmirch the art of dancing to make it inclusive for the fat, elderly, differently abled and weak of mind and heart.

SMULLOTRON is an improvising live electronics trio which originates in the creative environment at Fylkingen, the organization for radical and experimental art in Stockholm. They consist of:
Johannes Bergmark, amplified objects, constructions, saw, moog, Skarpnäck
Lise-Lotte Norelius, electronics, objects, motors, Bredäng
Sören Runolf, electronics, cello, el. guitar, Södermalm
All three are among the most active and creative live electronics improvisers in this universe (well at least the southern half of Stockholm), and all have a wide and open musical background and experience. Together they are concentrating on the use of amplified objects, recorded sounds and virtual modular synthesizers with digital patches of their own design, among other things that fill up a table each. The sounds merge into an exciting mix where it's difficult to say who makes what, drawing from the long history and techniques of electronic music and sound art. One time they performed in a boat club, inspired by sea life. At the time, the band shared a small sailing boat together in Stockholm, called Agda.
