Tim Olive
Tim Olive's table top guitar performances can be described as an exploration of the full sonic possibilities of steel strings and magnetic pickups. Extensive touring in North America, Europe and Japan has provided Tim Olive opportunities to play with a wide range of musicians including, most recently, Alfredo Costa Monteiro, Haco, Sharif Sehnaoui, and Martin Tetreault, Jeffrey Allport, Kelly Churko, Bunsho Nisikawa (in the duo Supernatural Hot Rug And Not Used ), Phroq, Mike Shiflet, and Fritz Welch, as well as a duo with dancer Corrie Befort.

Hoffman studied electroacoustic music formally from 2004-2008 with Matthew Smith.  He founded the Scissor Death record label in 2006 which has since branched into two sub-labels: Pilgrim Talk and Ghost & Son.  A frenetic release schedule has found him releasing tapes, zines, and cds under his own name and with other groups such as Back Magic, VEYOU, and Katchmare.

AUJIK (Stefan Larsson)
AUJIK is a new age group that shares Shintos belief that everything of nature is animated, even the things that are considered the most artificial and synthetic.
Just as with other forms of Animism, AUJIK worships everything that comes out of nature and regards it as spiritual beings, the main difference with AUJIK is that science and technology is considered as sacred as stones and trees. (from AUJIK homepage)

ポルタ チウーザ

ビデオ映画の中では、ガラスのドアが使用されます。その透明なガラスのドアに描写を繰り返すことによってジョバンニ デイ ステファノは、見通しの悪さを表現します。しかしそれは、決して成功することはなく、いつもどこかに透けて見える部分が残ってしまうのです。ポルタチウーザはこの不完全に塗られたガラスドアで、今の社会の過剰な安全対策の不可能さを象徴しています。絶対の安全など存在しないのです。

ハイケ フィードラーの文章とジョルジオ アンドレオリの映画は、今日ヨーロッパで問題視されている移民に関する犯罪に焦点をあてます。その問題は、“移民”が犯罪者、危険、反社会的と見なされる原因を作りだしているのです。それに対してポルタ チウーザは、一つの危険信号を送ります。
