Alister Flint Bought his first "synth" in the mid-90s, a Yamaha PSR500, which was more an arranger rather than really a synthetiser, Alister stepped into the world of eletronic music after having been heavily influenced by key albums such as Tangerine Dream's Stratosfear or Rubycon , as well as having performed as a techno DJ in free parties in southern France. Late 90s, he bought his first computer equiped with a 16bit soundcard and started to track his first electronic tunes on Fast Tracker, which is more like programming rather than any real play, using all kinds of codes to iunput notes, effects and such. But most of his production at time was techno / trance oriented. Shortly after 2000, the release of a revolutionary daw, Reason, opened a much wider scope of genres and styles, and he started to produce more downtempo, chilled out, groove-based pieces. And it was also the birth of his very humble home studio, with a Yamaha P-80 piano, and a semi-pro Creamware soundcard. With the additions of congas, derbekehh, and more recently, Korg nanoSeries as portable studio, he started to produce and performe live some experimental and ambient pieces. He has done a few collaborations with musicians such as C. Vaisvil in various genres, and opened to all kinds of genres, and artforms, with an expanding interest for microtonal music.

[Esc.] Laboratory / Art Factory Worms The independent motor-music-monster-machine of Alexander Seewald a.k.a. ”Doc.AtmosfearCrush” (research + manipulation), Tobias Kramer a.k.a. “Tomahawk” (guitar + healing), Marco Muller a.k.a. “theMachete” (electro + punk) and the artfatale.com designer Harry Seifert a.k.a. “theHarlequin” (design + fury) - form the pulsating heart of [Esc.]Laboratory / Art Factory Worms. The Project-Studio is hosted in the cellar of the Art Factory / Worms, an old industrial building of concrete and steel. Since 1979 it has been a place for alternative art and living. Every piece of music is a recorded inspiration, moments reflected by the location`s very own social environment of converted architecture and heretic structure. The characteristic sound of [Esc.]Laboratory / Art Factory Worms is generated by the use of strange instruments made of alien insect bodies and strongly recomended digital manipulations and de-synthesis. An amount of excessive rituals gives birth to the music that had whispered all the time - from the grains of noise – upon our ears. Now, reconfigured in a very sonic way. Further live-jams evolve the bits until they`ve reached the destination of the data storage. The drifting act between the conceptional live-performances and the creative chaos of the studio-sessions brings the dynamic colour and the driving force. At legendary sessions celebrated in the the studio, [Esc.]Laboratory / Art Factory Worms got re-enforced by Steffen K. a.k.a. “DD-380” (bass + armageddon). Constantly, our skeleton androids drive all our uninvited guests to get involved, too. After the ghost dance, Doc.AtmosfearCrush touches the tapes with his sophisticated hands and manipulates their magnetic structure by the use of archaic occult methods – not further mentioned. The massive output is representing the different split-personalities, hosted by [Esc.]Laboratory / Art Factory Worms. Beside the continuety of live performances at exhibitions, composing music for theatre and film - also the recording, sound design and the production of other artists got realised. A pantheon of project-based albums, compilations and remixes got released by the support of many extravagant netlabels and hostaged artists, as well as some exclusive releases on Vinyl, CD and strictly limited authentic art-collector`s CDs. Get connected to the phantastic sound of [Esc.]Laboratory / Art Factory Worms.

Ethidium Imply Ethidium Imply is the culmination of many years of collaboration in a world of sound, with himself and above all with the outside world.The first songs composed on sheet of paper at 1995. The remainder only one man project of Jaroslaw Jakub Tarasiuk directed to avantgarde musical creation, which hardly would like to assign to specific genres. Many years spent in a shadow, hidden in the underground scene trying many different styles to develop a solid compositional manufactory. His an extreme individualist, not seeking "to like him"; seeks to include in their productions fundamental basis, which is traced in vain in the currents contemporary. Creates a variety of marks under the influences of perception, most importantly to make up the harmonious integrity of the emotional. The part of Eth-I project are imaginary fancies of himself creator’s and therefore we can observe the extreme variety of arrangements, sections harmonic tones per se or in itself. He loves a multilevel design structures to encourage a deep thoughts. Sometimes from his production feel an experimental type of schizophrenia but what more we can expect from a guy who for many, many years made almost everything… Over the world of sounds he’s a simply citizen, lawyer and philosopher

jmdkm jmdkm has been active in the arts since 1994, particularly in painting, photography and sound. He has been in a self-centered experimenting mode which has possibly gone into a naive approach. This is related not only in lacking an academic context, but especially with the presence of ‘a hysterical purpose’ of creating and re-arranging. The emphasis always lies on collage, the material is being fragmented and re-arranged. jmdkm is trying to find a line of purely structural forms in a grotesque but systematic artistic perception. jmdkm is trying to create lyrical archetypes.

It's 100000 times more interesting than all this electronic with all super programming, software, that is making you stupid and dsp processing. No, we are not against the development of the engineering, contrary, we are for it ...but....we have our personal vision of the world around us, that's it." Some unexpected things are appearing all the time, just to audio parody them in some way - yes, this duo is original parody to the world, that is around all of us, the audio-visual world, that you can't touch, you can only see or hear it. It's the cheerful parody on you and us, of course ... you see - the real art is when you can recognize something related to you in it, yourself - and you are trying to change yourself to the best, isn't it..."

Matthew VandenBrook Matthew VandenBrook was born in metropolitan Detroit in 1972, just in time to witness the environment around him begin to rust away. Gone was the magic of Motown. Factories closed, people moved. Such was life. As a child of the seventies he listened closely to his parents record collection but found very little that connected spiritually with him until the day he discovered his parents soundtracks to the films 2001: A Space Odyssey and Solaris by Andrey Tarkovsky. The drones that washed over those albums spoke directly to his soul and stirred a lifelong obsession for music that was electronic in nature. Then when Matthew discovered post punk mtv in the early 80’s there was absolutely no doubt that music would play a central role in his life. In 1991 Matthew purchased his first sampler / synthesizer (a Casio FZ1 which he still owns) and immediately set to work programming industrial and noise works. After a short time in a local Goth band Matthew returned to the world of electronic music and began producing industrial and electronica works. By the early 2000’s electronica has lost much of its luster and Matthew began sliding to the periphery once again, furthering his musical exploration within the worlds of noise, drone, ambient, and experimental

Urban Bosque Urban Bosque was conceived on three poetic points: 1. Organicity: understood as the extension of the body’s own gesture through sound discourse 2. Spontaneity: taken as the matrix of artistic composition, generating stories that unite the pieces 3. Urban Environment: it is the influence of the contemporary city in an immersive sound context. The chosen instruments consist of a wide range of analog synthetizers, voices, electric guitar, zither and a variety of native wind instruments.

Wavespan & Andjru Werderitsch Wavespan (Phil Garrison) and Andjru Werderitsch began their sonic explorations in November of 2013. Andjru has performed on percussion and Didjeridu for television, theatre and numerous international artists including Suzanne Teng and Mystic Journey, Craig Kohland and Shamans Dream, Yuval Ron, and The Open Door Orchestra. Wavespan has been an active part of the Netlabel music scene since early 2006, and has released a steady stream of albums, singles, collaborations and remixes. Phil's ambient electronic soundscapes, explorative bass and processed field-recordings provide an ideal backdrop for Andjru's tribal percussion grooves and rhythmic Didjeridu phrasing, creating immersive environments of sound.

Whispering Souls "I had been writing music for many years, when I discovered electronic music. I found a whole new world for my ideas and the sounds within my head, I wanted to combine as many influences and genres of music, all together in one pot of musical wealth. I am influenced by film music, electronica and everything around me. I have been making music under different guises for the past 10 years, my other acts are The Calm Project and Subject B."
