Klaus Filip is a performer/composer/programmer and is maybe the first viennese musician, who used the laptop on stage at around 1993. The main focus of his current work is sinewaves, whose subtle and adducent sounds are used in a wide dynamic range depending on the project; that could be a noisy set with Chulki Hong or playing at the odor detection threshold with Radu Malfatti. Klaus Filip runs a software project called ppooll (formerly known as lloopp) that is a networking collection of a variety of modules. This freeware is widely used by improvising musicians all over the world.teaching position at the university of applied arts, vienna.steady dispute with the computer as a musical instrument.

noid /aka Arnold Haberl - musician, composer, sound artist living and working in Vienna. His music interprets the reality of sound we live in - this reality consists of imaginations, wishes, dreams and acoustical hallucinations as well as of the sound of the fan of a laptop or the wolf-tone of a cello. his sensual approach to sound, assisted by structural concepts, addresses a wide range of contradictory outcome. since the self-understanding of his work can be described as fundamental research the results are mostly understandable as a concentrate (essence), leaving out irrelevant points. consequently his musical works span from solo-works and installations to compositions for ensembles, using electronics as well as acoustic instruments. often denying the borderline between music and sound-art.
this lead him to collaborations with several choreographers, like joão fiadeiro, colette sadler, akemi takeya, philipp gehmacher, etc... and visual artists as for instance alexander schellow, heike kaltenbrunner, erik hable or god's entertainment. As an improvisor he performs in various constellations, among others with: klaus filip, taku unami, o.blaat, axel doerner, christian weber, kai fagaschinski, dieb13, kazuhisa uchihashi, etc...also he is programming for the "ppooll" project: an open source / copyleft / freeware, designed for live - improvisation, composition.
