Aidan Baker
Aidan Baker
Aidan Baker is a classically-trained multi-instrumentalist but uses the electric guitar as his primary instrument. Using prepared and alternate methods of playing the guitar, along with various electronic effects, Baker creates music which generally falls within the ambient/experimental genre but draws on influences from rock, electronic, classical, and jazz. A highly prolific artist, Baker has released numerous recorded works, both solo and with various group projects—most notably his dreamsludge duo project, Nadja—on such independent labels as Gizeh Records, Important Records, Alien8 Recordings, and his own imprint, Broken Spine Productions. Baker is also the author of several books of poetry. A regular live performer, Baker has toured extensively around the world, including appearances at such international festivals as FIMAV, SXSW, Incubate, Unsound, and Mutek, among others. Originally from Toronto, Canada, Baker currently resides in Berlin, Germany.
Bird People
Bird People
Bird People is a solo and collaborative project formed in 2010 by sound artist Uli Rois, who also runs Feathered Coyote Records. Rois uses a variety of acoustic and electronic instruments to create soundscapes centered around the drone but open to all possible ideas that may emanate from the void. The project also serves as a vehicle for Rois' ongoing investigation into the relationship between humankind and the natural world. To that end, Bird People often uses field recordings and acoustic instruments in conjunction with synthesizers and other electronic devices.
CYLS
CYLS
CYLS is a germano-swiss project which consists of Niels Hesse and Cyril Monnard. Combining intense depths and on point percussion, musically, CYLS is the perfect world between something like “electronica” and “ambient-drone”. The auditors are exposed to something deep, powerful, intense and mesmerizing
Ernst Halft
Ernst Halft
Ernst Halft was born in Brionischken, Lithunia, on the 25th October 1923. The Halft family moved to Asia in 1925. Ernst spent the most part of his youth accompanying his father, Hansjörg Halft, an anthropologist and musicologist and his elder brother Johann (born 1922), through different Asian countries. In the thirties, Ernst and his father traveled India to meet interpreters of traditional music. For many years, they carried out a significant number of recordings that Ernst will fastly use in his sound productions. Especially in the recordings of "Querim" (Released on Nova-Tune in 2004). It is during this period that Ernst began to develop a keen interest in recording techniques, audio collages and sound experimentation. After the death of his father in 1947, Ernst continued to travel Asia for recording sessions. It is in 1951, after years of practice and audio research, that Ernst truly started to compose pieces of electro-acoustic music. Throughout his career, Ernst followed the technological and musical evolution, producing pieces influenced by different musical period, but also by the evolution of societies. Ernst spent his life between different Asian countries. He is now living on the Tioman Island in Malaysia and keeps a hold on most of his productions. It is seldom occations like these, that the public is able to witness his early and actual works.
Filipe Felizardo & Margarida Garcia
Filipe Felizardo & Margarida Garcia
Margarida Garcia plays the electric double bass in a vaporously monumental way - she has played & plays with the likes of Loren Connors, Manuel Mota, David Maranha, Marcia Bassett, and has recently released an LP with Thurston Moore. Filipe Felizardo plays electric guitar, mostly focusing on his solo output, a fierce personal approach to the blues tradition - when not playing with Gabriel Ferrandini and Pedro Sousa or, also, as a member of David Maranha's Ensemble. His records have been released by swiss label three:four. This collaboration between Margarida Garcia and Filipe Felizardo is the final result of a year in which the two musicians sporadically worked in duo.
Goodbye Ivan
Goodbye Ivan
A project run by Arnaud Ivan Sponar, French multi-instrumentalist coming from twenty-five years of extended musical experience, involved in researching different musical styles. The music of Goodbye Ivan exposes voids and experiments with space. It is music for wandering into the unknown. Cinematographic and melancholic, a mixture bound to inspire both tears and the smashing of furniture. 
Niels Hesse
Niels Hesse
The Solo-Project of "Elektrohaendler" and "CYLS" member Niels Hesse was his first Concept-Release. Based on very short samples of single instruments like guitars, bass, accordeon, Niels did stretch and merge, mangle and cut-clicked these exerpts and created a new world of sound out of it. The result is a droney, yet clickling and random mash of what used to be a strum of a string or a bang on a drum. Niels Hesse was born in 1975 in the hanseatic town of Bremen and started his musical journey at the age of 20. He is still traveling.
Larkian
Larkian
Behind the Larkian pseudonym, hides Cyril Monnard, a Lausanne based guitarist that uses his instrument as a sound generator to develop, with the help of real-time loop-samplers and diverse effect processors, its musical universe, a world made of deep, powerful and intense soundscapes, which oscillate between the pain and the feverish accent of a not completely extinct madness.
MORRISNERI
MORRISNERI
Jen Morris combines forces with Spanish/Swiss guitarist Stéphane Neri for their duo project MORRISNERI. They recorded "Cathedral Tapes" in the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Lausanne, Switzerland. This release is the result of many months of marrying field recordings, guitar and live sessions using the cathedral as a studio and as an instrument in and of itself.
Sinn/rd
Sinn/rd
In Sinn/rd , there is a bit of everything : a guitar, a trumpet, an electric cello, a drum machine and laptops . With all this, Philippe Simon, Stéphane Babey and Cyril Monnard weave and grind sounds, dig loose and rough atmospheres, embroider marginal melodies and nail the whole with some rhythmics.
The Star Pillow
The Star Pillow
The Star Pillow is the drone-ambient-experimental project of the italian guitar player Paolo Monti born in December 2007 and mainly based on the research of expression and relation between sound, space and human emotions.
Thisquietarmy
Thisquietarmy
Thisquietarmy is the experimental guitar-based project of Eric Quach from Montreal, Quebec, Canada - active since 2005. Revolving around improvised guitar-based drone music, he takes his sonic experimentations further by adding textural and structural elements of post-punk, shoegaze, krautrock, post-rock, black metal and doom metal to them. The results can be described as dark, melodic, expansive and engaging dreamscapes. His live performances are mostly presented as a real-time score to hypnotic ethereal visuals, which he creates himself for each performance.
Yadayn
Yadayn
Yadayn (Arabic for “two hands”) is a solo project by Belgian-based multi-instrumentalist Gowaart (Zura Zaj, Gluem). He has released two albums on Navalorama Records (Vloed, 2014) and Eilean Records (Pendel, 2015), and has played live in Belgium, the Netherlands and Egypt. While his previous albums were focused primarily on composed material for guitar, Naam (Dead Vox, 2015) showcases a different approach, consisting exclusively of one-take improvisation recordings.
