t.b. OR NOT t.b. (D)
Lyrik und Poesie aus eigener Feder treffen dramatisiert auf kaum kontrollierbare Elektronikimprovisationen, analoge Tonbandaufnahmen und akustische Klangerzeuger, suchen und finden ihre gemeinsame Mitte und entlassen den verstörten Zuhörer verblüfft mit dem Gefühl der Verwunderung. t.b. or not t.b. ist (oder ist nicht) das erste gemeinsame musikalische Projekt der Offenbacher Künstler Bea Dietz und torstn Kauke.

B°tong (CH)
Chris Sigdell is an experimental electronic musician. He developed a soft spot for early industrial textures and pioneering ambient soundscapes while cutting his teeth in cult industrial band NID (1995-2005). A mysterious and shadowy figure he has ended up assembling sounds of such chilling creepiness that it makes Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works Vol. 2 sound like a collection of sugar-coated lullabies. The sound of b°tong feels a lot like an agonizingly slow crawl through a dark tunnel where the dim light at the other end never gets closer.

Rovar 17 (HU)
The phenomenon of Rovar17 (Insect17 in English) was born 31st august 2002, in the workroom of Kálmán Pongrácz. Levente Bod joined the band three days after, and they worked together until the end of 2004. Together they created the albums Horsehead Nebula, Anything Else The Madness and English Letter with audio collage techniques. The line-up widened with artist Zoltán Fekete joining for the debut concert. Zoltán was responsible for the visuals of our live acts. He played a few times with Rovar17 but soon left to form his own band. Nowadays Rovar17 is Kálmán Pongrácz’s solo project. Different kinds of collaborations with other musicians, visual artists, performers and theatres occur though.
