Musician and visual artist CARSTEN NICOLAI (aka ALVA NOTO) works
in the transitional area between art and science. In his intensely
dynamic work, Nicolai plays with the rules of physicality. Clicks
and glitches are not used as ornamental additions, but make up the
essential elements of the work, which is often structured around
the rhythmic grooves of hip-hop and R&B. Nicolai has performed in
many of the world's most prestigious spaces including The Guggenheim,
MOMA SF, MOMA Oxford, NTT Tokyo, Tate Modern, and Venice Biennial.

OLAF BENDER (aka BYETONE) is a founding member of the Raster-Noton
label, as well as its lead designer. Bender creates his music digitally,
assembling sine tones into complex sound fabrics of deep sub-bass
and rhythmic clicks and crackles. He creates abstract animations
to support his abstract music, transforming the rhythm of the music
into a graphic equivalent, which he controls in real time.
