Since the early 1980s Thomas Lehn has been working as an author and performer of contemporary music. Parallel to his work as a pianist, since the early 1990s his most widely renowned work has been performing and producing live-electronic music. Rooted in the experience of a wide spectrum of musical fields based on his background as an interpreting and improvising pianist in classical, contemporary and jazz music, and having been involved in numerous other projects like music theatre, dance, multimedia etc, he has been developing an individual language of electronic music. The electronic equipment he uses consists of analogue synthesizers from the late 1960s, and since 1994 in particular the EMS Synthi A. Besides the substantial sound qualities of its analogue synthesis, the ability of this modular instrument to modify electronic sounds directly, as well as to combine and to control several parameters of the sound synthesis at the same time, allow him to spontaneously act in close contact with the various structural levels of the musical process.

In 2000 his solo album Feldstärken was released on German label Random Acoustics. Today his discography totals around 80 CD publications. Long term collaborations include ensembles KONK PACK, TOOT, THERMAL, FUTCH, MIMEO, SPEAK EASY, 6IX, VARIO-34, as well as duos with Marcus Schmickler, Tiziana Bertoncini, Gerry Hemingway, Paul Lovens, Frédéric Blondy Urs Leimgruber and John Butcher.

Ute Wassermann is known as a vocal soloist and composer/performer and for her extraordinary, many-voiced and extreme vocal sound-language, which she has brought into contemporary music in diverse ways. She defamiliarises the sound of her voice using bird call whistles, palate whistles, speaker objects or field recordings. A particular interest is the development of compositions for spaces with unusual acoustic qualities. She has performed as a vocal soloist in the area of contemporary and experimental music in festivals in Europe, Australia and Asia. She is an integral part of the Berlin and London experimental music scenes, performing regularly with ongoing collaborators like Speak Easy (with Phil Minton, Martin Blume and Thomas Lehn), John Russell, Alexander Kolkowski, Els Vandeweyer, Michael Vorfeld (percussion and lights), Birgit Ulher and others, and is a member of the Berlin-based composer/performer ensemble Les Femmes Savantes. She has given premieres of works composed specially for her voice, for example by Richard Barrett, Chaya Czernowin, Henning Christiansen, Hans-Joachim Hespos, Matthias Kaul, Michael Maierhof, Michael Finnissy, Cathy van Eck, Simon Steen-Andersen and Andrew Noble, as well as performances of works by Salvatore Sciarrino, John Cage and others.

Richard Scott is a composer of electronic music residing in Berlin recently working with Axel Dörner, Jon Rose, Thomas Lehn, Audrey Chen, Clive Bell, Richard Barrett, Kazuhisa Uchihashi, Michael Vorfeld, Frank Gratkowki and the Lightning Ensemble. He has worked with a variety of obscure digital technologies, such as the Buchla Lightning and Thunder and his self-designed WiGi system for the last years he has been mostly focussed on the possibilties of analogue modular synthesis.

Initially inspired to play electronic music by teenage experiences of Cabaret Voltaire he was introduced to free improvisation in the 1980s by John Stevens, studied saxophone with Elton Dean and Steve Lacy, and electroacoustic composition with David Berezan and Ricardo Climent. He has released many albums, for example with Grutronic and Evan Parker for PSI records, his solo double LP, Several Circles, and an album with Twinkle3 and Sidsel Endreson. In recent years he co-founded several concert series in Berlin: Basic Electricity, AUXXX, Klangkeller and Sound Anatomy and has his own Sound Anatomy weblabel imprint.
