Kazehito Seki 
Voiz (Non-FX Voice Noise) performer who seeks for the sharpest sound by running about between Noise (Abstract / Nerves) and Hardcore (Concrete / Muscle). His voice with a couple of microphones with NO electronic FX shows a wide spectrum, not only emotional screams but as an instrument, oscillating between subtle sinewaves and brutal harsh noise in a microsecond.

For more than a decade in Tokyo's sonic ghetto culture, Kazehito has been blasting his voice in a hardcore band called Omawarisan. After several years of fusing voice with electronic noises, in 2012 started his solo activity without electronics, besides joining in a Voiz group called Tokyo Voiz Choir organaized by William Tokuhisa. In the same year, toured in Korea with his two bands. In 2015 toured in EU, had 40 live shows, several WSs recordings, sessions, at LUFF (CH), Radio Panik (BE), MultiMadeira (PT), etc. In 2016, he has several releases such as, a full length: “LASTDOMAINWORLDVOICEOFF” by his experimental noise rock band: Ameri B.C, a split work as his new feedback project: Self Toxication with BEEATSZ v2.0x (TR). He also teaches training and keeping the voice safe, because after all -- the voice is and was (always) the primordial instrument.

無 (MU)
London based avant-garde band formed by Sergio Calderon & Céli Lee, visual artists and musicians. The band incorporates diverse styles, instruments and undiscovered approaches.

Since 2015, they have been exploring live improvisation of guitar sound, volume, weight and texture. Their live shows are a blend of noise, drone, metal and power-ambient with minimalist compositions and improvisations. But they don’t want to be attached to any genre or expectation, 無 compositions are free. Their sound pieces have been originally included in exhibitions, films and installations.

無’s work includes the film soundtracks of STRANGELOVE, EVENT No. 3, EVENT No. 4, LUCILE and Impossible Yes. On 15th April 2016, they premiered CHIMERAS at fRUITYSPACE, Beijing, a performance of live music and film by Sergio Calderón & Céli Lee. In fall 2016 they did their first tour in Japan, presenting their latest composition, L'Impossible.

Lola de la Mata

She studied weaving and printmaking before developing an interest in dance and music notation, and currently studies a Masters in experimental music with Christopher Fox and Jennifer Walshe at Brunel University.

While her solo work saw her perform in a series associated with St John Sessions in London last year, Lola is involved in numerous collaborations as an improvising violinist and composer.

Earlier this year, Lola had two pieces in a group show, “Sound Artists from Morley” at Morley Gallery, London.
