Robert Piotrowicz is one of the most prolific artists in the Polish experimental and improvised music scene. He develops his own solo projects and collaborates with world's leading sound artists and musicians. Piotrowicz has developed his trademark sound of intense dynamics, seized in dramatic and balanced form. Several solo albums have been released, the last one of which "Lasting Clinamen" in 2008, was highly acclaimed by critics around the globe. Robert Piotrowicz as intrumentalist and composer often works with Anna Zaradny, Burkhard Stangl and Valerio Tricoli. Other collaborators in recent years have included Oren Ambarchi, Jerome Noetinger, Xavier Charles, Lasse Marhaug, John Hegre, Tony Buck, Kevin Drumm, and others.
Valerio Tricoli works as a concrete music composer, improviser, sound installation artist, producer, sound engineer, and curator. His compositions bridge musique concrète and conceptual forms of sound (i.e. the radical interest in how reality, virtuality, memory relate to each other during the acoustic event): music, as a recorded or as a synthetically-modeled sound, is always hovering between the “here and now” of the event and the shady domain of memory - distant but at the same time present, akin to a déjà-vu experience.
