Frank Bretschneider is a musician, composer and video artist in Berlin. His work is known for precise sound placement, complex, interwoven rhythm structures and its minimal, flowing approach. Described as »abstract analogue pointilism«, »ambience for spaceports« or »hypnotic echochamber pulsebeat«, Bretschneider’s subtle and detailed music is echoed by his visuals: perfect translated realizations of the qualities found in music within visual phenomena.

Musician, composer, curator and professor, Rogelio Sosa's artistic practice focuses on exploring the intersection of art, technology and music. His work seeks to eliminate rigidity of musical notation and concert halls through the use of experimentation. The result is a form of sound art composed of textures, layers, landscapes and frequencies expressed as liberating gestures. Through compositions, installations and performances he upholds the freedom and individualization of the artist in the midst of a society of oppression.
