Eric Leonardson (US)
is a Chicago-based composer, radio artist, sound designer, instrument
inventor, improvisor, visual artist, and teacher. He has devoted a
majority of his professional career to unorthodox approaches to sound
and its instrumentation with a broad understanding of texture,
atmosphere and microtones.

Belma Bešlic-Gál (AT)
Born 1978 in Tuzla (BiH).
Slovenian/Bosnian composer, artist and pianist, living in Vienna and
Salzburg (Austria).

Piano studies at the LISZT SCHOOL of Music Weimar ((1996-2001, a. o.
with Gerlinde Otto and Lazar Berman), studies of composition, music
theory and composition for music theatre at the University of Arts in
Graz (2003- present, a. o. with Bernhard Lang, and Klaus Lang). During
the last years, her artistic concepts revolved around issues such as
cultural challenges of postwar/transitional societies, nihilism,
futurism, space exploration/science, manipulations of temporal
perception in (intermedia) music constellations.

Bernhard Gál (AT)
Owed to his multifaceted and interdisciplinary artistic approach,
Austrian artist, composer and musicologist Bernhard Gal is equally at
home within the domains of contemporary music, installation art and
media art. As of now, Gal has created around 70 sound installations
and intermedia art projects, combining sound, light, objects, spatial
concepts and video projections into multidimensional and prevalently
site-specific art works. He also composes music for acoustic
instruments and electro-acoustic music. As a laptop musician, Gál has
been performing extensively on five continents. Another aspect of his
work are collaborations with fellow artists, including the Japanese
architect Yumi Kori (‘audio-architectural installations’) and
musicians such as Tung Chao-Ming, Kai Fagaschinski, Jennifer Walshe
and Belma Beslic-Gál.
