Fernando Laub (aka flaub) is a composer and visual artist mainly orientated to avant-garde, experimental and electroacoustic music. With the aim of compiling sonic substance and creating new devices from old industrial machines and recycled scrap, he spent several years living into an abandoned factory reconditioned as a sound laboratory. Besides those post-industrial quests he use to travel around the world documenting sonic and visual material. Combining all that stuff with the research of new synthesis methods, his music not only describes pictures, it will transport you to a sort of surreal and sci-fi scenarios, images that are quite difficult to describe.
Ondrej Gasek aka Aleff is a Czech producer which creates music oscillating between downtempo, ambient techno and industrial. Recently he also extended his production into the field of scenic music for films.
His album "Selected Punishments" in its own way illustrates the human rudeness and intoxicating astray on the paths of inner human conscience. It continues his industrial electronics concept and closes the circle of one decade of Aleff's work.

The katsa.theo audio-visual project, backed by the audio collagist Jiří Tilgner, grows mostly from the electro-industrial roots naturally spiced with downtempo, musique concrète and even dubstep features. His current record Porto sums up the cooperation with the singer Milli Janatková. The contrast between her dreamy voice singing Portuguese lyrics and the raw musical background moves the project towards the realm of abstract pop.
Sensus is an experimental project of Radek Charvát from Cheb, which describes his music in his words as "sound flows" or "unidentifiable sound objects".
