ABOUT THE MUSICIANS:
Paolo Gaiba (or PGR): Frequencies explorer from Italy. Both electric and acoustic. Sometimes super loud, others not. Dedicated recordist in the nature. Researching the clash, the dynamics and the static states of the sounds which please and sorround me.
Rastko Lazić is a composer and improviser of electronic music based out of Copenhagen, Denmark. He has been composing music for contemporary dance, theatre, and television since 1996 including performances throughout Europe and Southeast Asia. He is mostly interested in experimenting with sound through free improvisation on any devices capable of producing sound. These are mostly electronic instruments and gadgets. He likes to call it Free Electronics. Although his main instrument is a modular synthesizer, in recent years he began playing Southeast Asian percussions and computer software. The computer software is mostly used for creating custom instruments and sound for installation pieces. He enjoys creating unheard instruments that sing unheard sounds and plays them on various tactile interfaces. The sound he creates ranges from minimal to noisy analog feedback.
NRYY is harsh noise, digital hard core project, weird guitar and a mix of guitar industrial sounds, and more. Originally from Japan and now based in Kuala Lumpur. Sometimes he involves in collaboration with another genre musician and visual. He has a number of releases from music labels all over the world.
