Rehab Hazgui (b.Tunisian) is a trandisciplinary designer, composer and improviser of electronic music. Using the analog synthesizer and handmade audio devices, she explores the endless movement of sound, repetition and the use of silence as a third space on the boundary to navigate between different forms of listening. Through immersive live improvisation, Rehab interacts with her synthesizers, guiding their development and growth into pieces that unfold in the present moment. Much of her work is informed by her deep adoration for sound, and her grounded relationship with the analog synthesizer, a tool she has applied herself to not only as a composer and player but also as a designer and builder.

Mads Kinnerup is a composer and electronic musician writing and producing new instrumental music using self-developed software and hardware tools. With a background in electronic experimental music, he is interested in pushing the boundaries of how electronic music can be performed and produced in new original ways.
At the moment, his work is based around programming new innovative sequencer systems, both in the analog realm and in the computer, capable of performative human interaction. A key word in his current work is 'morphing' and his current aim is to construct sequencer systems that makes the morphing of sounds from one state to another possible. This will also be the center of his artistic work at EMS.
His educational background is a bachelor in Electronic Music and Sound Art from Danish National Academy of Music. Currently, he is a master student at Rhythmic Music Conservatory in Copenhagen.
During his internship at EMS, Mads will continue his work with interactive sequencer systems with a particular interest in exploring the sequencer systems on the Buchla system in relation to his ongoing work with morphing sounds.

Although she started as a traditional musician and has been active in Korean classical music groups, she has continuously tried to find a meeting point between traditional-, modern-, electronic- and world music.
More than just being a performer playing Korean traditional and Western percussion instruments and various special instruments, she is driven to learn about the techniques and methodology of electronic music and sound programming. This wide interest also made her a DJ and sound designer.
Lately, she has been successfuly expanding her musical career as a music director in various dance and theater pieces, making use of her sound range from traditional to electronic.
She has now become a multi-producer working with sound designing, producing, composing, and arranging.

Francesco is a sound lover who graduated in electronic music at Conservatorio G.F. Ghedini Cuneo. His work is based on electroacoustic compositions, live performances and sound design for moving images (documentaries and movies).
In his music, he mostly uses digital and analog elaboration of recorded sounds, with the aim to give sound a meaning, paying attention to perception aspects. He is attracted by musique concrète and from the act of recording sounds, played or from the environment.
Francesco is still working to know his different faces of musical identity better. The work is never ending and lot of fun.
Ryberg’s work embodies her rich production history.
