Lorenzo Senni is a tireless investigator of dance music’s mechanisms and working parts, and head of respected experimental label Presto!? His work explores the idea of the “buildup” found in euphoric dance music as a starting point to make a non-uplifting, more introspective piece that implicitly preserves its emotional tension and drama.

Bjørn Christiansen aka Bjørn Svin (b.1975) is a Danish composer of electronic music. In his early teenage years, Bjørn started out doing naivistic melodic ambient music on synthesizers.
Inspired by the rave culture he got into more rhythmical expressions which led to his first release in 1995 under the alias Bjørn Christansen on Stranger than Paradise Records. The minimalistic techno music that started to occur at that time, as well as the more alternative artists such as Like a Tim, Plaid and Aphex Twin, was the main inspiration for a new output from Bjørn : a minimalistic, playful and very melodic dance music that was both intricate and naivistic at the same time.
Moisés Horta Valenzuela (Tijuana, November 29 1988) is a musician, composer and sound artist. Taking inspiration from the sociocultural border context of Tijuana and being part of a generation exposed to the consumption of information via the Internet, the objective of his work is to express the ways in which the human mind is transformed by the constant movement between the virtual and physical realms. His work is characterized by exploring the juxtaposition of dual concepts such as tradition and hypermodernity, dystopia and utopia, low resolution and high definition using new technologies and electronic musical instruments, both software and hardware. He studied a Bachelor in Science in Audio Production at the Art Institute of San Diego, California (2010). He has participated in a series of workshops that focus on the use of technologies for the creation of multimedia art: Potencial de Acción: Introduction to Neurofeedback (Alumnos 27 Foundation, 2015), Biofeedback workshop (Biblioteca Vasconcelos/Centro de Cultura Digital, 2014), Introduction to physical computing (Protolab, 2010).
