Joao Orecchia

VJ

is an artist and self taught non-musician who has been making music for many years. His fascination is in squeezing sounds out of anything and layering them on top of other sounds squeezed out of other things; from guitars to manipulated circuits and banjos to field recordings.
He has been exploring ideas of randomness and perceived meaning and composition using found sound and field recordings and creating graphic scores. Through experimentation and improvisation Orecchia investigates the physicality of sound, seeking a balance between computer technology, hand made electronics and real world sounds such as the human voice and traditional musical instruments.

WiiJ Timski

became bored with the standard DJ setup. By using technology developed in the game industry, it is now possible to control a complex DJ setup with just your own body. Using the stage, completely freed from any hardwired equipment, Timski is able to make sounds and control his equipment. This makes the electronic DJ performance not only interesting to watch – it is also a more interesting and fun experience for the Dutch artist himself. Expect breakbeats, drum’n’bass and dubstep all mixed together by his body movement.
