DORAVIDEO / JP
DoraVideo is the brain child of Yoshimitsu Ichiraku (drums and computer), who appeared in the 2005 summer grand bazaar commercial for the department store Laforet Harajuku, won an honorary mention in the Digital Music division of Europe's largest media art festival, ARS Electronica, and has been active as the drummer in the band Yamaguchi, which has stirred up quite a storm of prizes and awards world wide. The DVD released in July of this year, 'DoraVideo Volume 1', managed to violate every imaginable law, committing copyright infringement, slander, indecent exposure, has been awarded a spot in the Guiness Book of World Records for offensiveness, and went out of print just before release. At Auxxx he will reveal his brand new instrument Doranome.

DJ SNIFF / NL
dj sniff ”plays the playback” through scratching, cutting and stuttering various records that reflect his influences from free improvisation to hip-hop. Utilizing custom built samplers, he can capture and playback sounds at lighting speed or sculpt heavy drones. In any case, nothing is subtle.
ALESSANDRO BOSETTI / IT
Alessandro Bosetti is a sound artist, composer and performer currently based in Berlin. His main focus is in the fringe area between spoken language and music. He has created a series of highly compelling sound works where relational aesthetics meets innovative composition. Field research and interviews often build the basis for his abstract compositions along with electro-acoustic and acoustic collages, relational strategies, trained and untrained instrumental practices, vocal explorations and digital manipulations. Between 2008 and 2010 he develoed mask mirror, a speaking machine based on a max/msp patch, which he will perform with at Auxxx.
