American electronic music maverick O.S.T. has been releasing and performing since 1992 as O.S.T., rook vallade, Dalglish, and other aliases. After more than 10 albums and numerous singles under his various monikers, Douglas remains well outside the established parameters of electronic music. His work is a malevolent mutation of techno into arrhythmic patterns, interwoven digital textures, and amorphous melodies. He is known, somewhat notoriously, as an artist who is unrelentingly true to what creativity, emotion, and passion are to music. In 2003 O.S.T. was invited by Autechre to play at their curated All Tomorrows Parties. After performing around Europe he decided to settle in Berlin where after a few years of coming down, he uses this project to start again.
Berlin video artist collective Transforma (Baris Hasselbach, Luke Bennett and Simon Krahl) combine the momentum of VJ improvisation with the power of highly composed imagery and narrative. Transforma started producing experimental video art in 2001 and have been taking their imageworld and production processes to higher levels of absurdity ever since. They have worked on promos, concert video and live cinema approaches, in collaboration with Apparat and Funkstörung among others, and have VJed in clubs in Berlin and around Europe.
