Japanese artist Shingo Inao (a.k.a. "stra.") performs live with a sonification of body movement using sensor-driven techniques using his self-made instruments with tilt and distance sensors. His performances and objects&installations have been shown in Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Russia, America and Japan. His first album as solo project "stra." will be released in 2013.

These days Xaver Xylophon is making animated short films but in his early years he wanted to become a composer for film music and that's why he convinced his parents to get piano lessons. Even if interests have shifted since then, Xaver still plays the piano and sometimes there comes the opportunity to accompany one of the ongoing projects with some homemade music.

Matthias Fritsch is a Berlin based media artist who works with social
networks and collaborates with artists from all over the world for his silent
videos. He has produced various fictional and poetic short and long films.
Fritsch is one of the founders of Moving Silence.
