Calum Gunn is a Scottish musician, living in London, UK. His work explores the possibilities of rhythm and timbre within rave, IDM and happy hardcore, bending and pushing at the outer limits of what can be considered dance music.



Zuriñe F Gerenabarrena is a basque composer working in acoustic and electronic music. Member of the team of artists and composers, SINKRO.
She is a versatile composer, who has many works for soloists, symphony orchestra, theater, dance, animation, electroacoustic and
multidisciplinary projects.
She treats the evolution of sound in a very free way, so her music is presented with gestures and notes that break in a labyrinth discourse,
renewed in the time to be based on the timbre like structural element.
Bjarke Rasmussen (b. 1985) is an electronic musician, currently based in Copenhagen. Performing live under “Grøn” and “Human Trails”.

The project’s idea is based on a collaboration work between Francesco Fabris and Sandro Mussida whom will join forces after many collaborative projects with the goal of releasing an EP/LP out of this resideny's work. Having worked with classical and electronic music for more than ten years the main focus of the work is to achieve the best fusion between cello and the EMS electronic instrumentation such as the Buchla and Serge modular systems.
The aim of the collaboration is an investigation around the performer's gestural approach to sound, a figurative and physical embodiment related to specific classical music rhythm patterns and phrase recurrences transferred to the machine. A two way collaboration involving digital programming, gestural mapping and analog forces.

Asha Tamirisa is a sound and media artist currently based in Providence RI, USA.
