Thomas Ankersmit* (1979, Leiden, Netherlands) is a musician and
installation artist based in Berlin and Amsterdam. His main instruments are
the Serge analogue modular synthesizer, computer and alto saxophone. He
frequently works together with New York minimalist Phill Niblock and
electroacoustic artists Valerio Tricoli and Kevin Drumm. "Ankersmit
constructs a musical world that feels alive and capable of going anywhere,
and yet also manages to give the music a strong sense of structured
purpose, a degree of compositional control unusual in this area of live
performance. It is the fine balance between the sense of chaos that
threatens to pull everything apart and the controlled formation of the
music into clearly defined sections of differing intensities that raises
the work above that of so many of Ankersmit’s contemporaries." Richard
Pinnell, The Wire

Born in Vevey in 1980, *Antoine Chessex* is a composer and sound artist
whose works span compositions for ensembles, solo performances, sound
installations and transdisciplinary collaborations.His compositions and
performances possess a raw energy and are characterized by textural density
as well as a strong focus on the physical dimensions of sounds and spaces.
Daniel Buess* is involved in various groups and Ensembles in the realm of
experimental music, like “Ensemble Phœnix Basel” of which he is a
core-member and solo-percussionist since its foundation in 1998, “CORTEX”
(with the composer and electronic-musician Alex Buess), “16-17”, MIR (with
Papiro and Michael Zaugg) and Buggatronic (with James Hullick). His
collaborations include artists like Zbigniew Karkowski, Kasper T.Toeplitz,
John Duncan, Michael Wertmüller, Phill Niblock, Iancu Dumitrescu and many

Since 1999, *Martin Lorenz* has worked as a freelance percussionist on the
contemporary and experimental music scene and has realized solo and chamber
music projects with assorted partners: with Conrad Steinmann (Ensemble
Diferencias, Ensemble Melpomen), with Teodora Stepancic
(piano/composition), with Canto Battuto (Eva Nievergelt and Christoph
Brunner), the ‘ensemble für neue musik zürich’ and others.
