Reykjavik (Iceland). Obsessive music-maverick Elvar Mar Kjartansson aka
Auxpan - this young sound-crafter with knack for creating selfdeveloped
original apparatures, is not so interested in the music itself but much more
in what kind of sounds it is possible to make using his machines. He uses a
few oscillators, old amplifiers and the trashiest imaginabel lo-fi
appliances, parts of his toneproducers and generators he built into the
oddest containers, such as cigarette boxes, pastille or metal biscuit tins,
fitted with dials and switches, combining them with contact microphones or
reprogrammed sound chips from birthday cards. Even his name is a derivative
of his tinkering talent - it is program: Aux(iliary) Pan(el). Techno-savy
Auxpan has created music where sound bytes, rhythmic patterns, field
recordings and words come together to form an experimental DIY sound. The
self-taught tinkerer's groundbreaking sound is part crunching electronica,
part soothing ambient. And he has been building quite a reputation for
himself in diving stages on the international festival scene.


Schaulei/Moscow (Lithuania/Central Russia), Lithuanian experimental
electronic musician and psychologist Richardas Norvila aka Benzo has started
to fiddle around with electronic since the age of 14, finally 1998 he
started the audio-ethnographic project Benzo. He loves the noise of Moscow,
the city where he lives, a combination and influences that hums like a
merciles meat grinder mixing together everything russian, tartar, armenian
and azerbaijani. This all forms the basic for his music which loner Norvila
produces in his studio. He is known as the king collector of original old
synthesizers and electronic instruments from the soviet times as well as
user of handcrafted electronic instruments made by technical specialists.
This combination generates the essence of his highly recommended definition.

 The Closing,

Vienna (Austria) The Closing are the most burning newcomers that strike out
from the Austrian scene at the moment and beside they are one of the most
favourite groups of Anticon's own sole. This shy young trio was set up
around one and a half year ago by the musical heads Lukas Lehner and
Alexander Hengl together with Daniela Auer, responsible for vocals. Their
intention from the beginning was to make music without any borders and
limitations in direction of sound, style and production-techniques under use
of both analogue and digital ways. Based on very free organised soundscapes
and heavily processed tone manipulations hold together by the mostly
dominating beats and precarious rhythms compensed with a variety on vocal
transformations and cascades visceral melodies. Not just in the studio also
on stage The Closing appear as a variable growing bandformat that include
often guests on live drums and guitars, their shows are aided by outlandish
projections. Watch out soon for their their debut releases on new Anticon
sublabel Sixmonth and Laton.

 Alois Huber,

a multiplex workaholic in various parallel genres as an organizer, producer
and social engineer. Ex-member of Sabotage Communications und Craft records.
Austria?s Grand-Master of deep minimal ambient electronica simplicity as
well as creator of mad driven disco turban breaks for the inner- and outer
space has released 6 full length solo albums and did a hand full of
compilation contribution over the last decade on such labels like React,
K7!, Craft, Subetage beside Laton, which he initially founded together with
Pomassl. He played various spectaculare live shows and did several
club-tours all over the globe.

 Infra Red Army

is a project by Dmitry Soroka - Ukrainian musician. He was born in
Mariupol�, a large industrial city on the shore the smallest and warmest sea
in Europe � the Azov Sea. Dmitry finished music school, where he majored in
classical guitar. Then he completed a course in psychology at Kharkiv
National University. For the past 30 years, Dmitry has tried many jobs,
raging from a school psychiatrist, a builder, an interviewer working for
sociological and marketing research centres, to a system engineer with a
large software company. Presently, he lives and works in Kharkiv and has 2
children. Dmitry started to compose music in 1994. From the very beginning,
he did not follow the mainstream. Instead, he was into in �strange� music.
Initially, he tended to stay within acoustic guitar sound, but later his
interests broadened to computer-based electro-acoustics. In spring 2003,
Dmitry met Andrey Kiritchenko, the founder of Nexsound net label. This soon
resulted in the first release of his Infra Red Army project � Black Body
(ns15, 2003). Subsequently, the Infra Red Army tracks were included into
compilations released by Nexsound (Polivox Populy 2 - ns14, 2003) and
Autoplate (The Many Things Worth Living For - apl020, 2004). If you try to
interpret the name of the project as a concept, you may well find all
corresponding connotations in Infra Red Army music: an interest in Infra �
the Inner; the present of the Warmth, as the animal, or better still, live
part of the spectrum; the onward march of what is yet to come from the
outside. At the same time, it is an inner revolution movement, and the Army
of Warmth. The Infra Red Army music is not extreme in its form, but dramatic
and capable of creating almost tangible emotional effects.

is one of the dazzling figureheads of the cutting edge electronic music
scene. The Austrian based psycho-physio musician, sound and recording
artist, label frontman, and turntablist, counts to the early protagonists
and today�s exploring pioneers of new electronica and future experimental
play. From 1996 up till now, the founding member of Laton has released seven
full-length solo-albums, three vinyl ep�s, did numerous contributions on
labels such as Laton, Raster-Noton, Craft, Mille Plateaux, Ash
International, Nexsound. Uniquely realized thanks to prototypes and
electronic instruments that he developed himself, Pomassl�s current work is
the quintessence of power and astonishment among all the musical genres that
he is explored as an artist up to this point � but reduced to their simplest
parameters. Pomassl is one of the emblematic figures of a sonic pursuit
pushed to the extreme. Fuelled by a reputation for being an unparalleled

 Philipp Quehenberger

was born in the olympic city of Innsbruck, grew up in Tyrol, Seattle and
Newcastle. He discovered his love for electronic music in his father�s
studio and started playing the piano and fooling around with synthesizers.
Played in local bands of various styles, ranging from Death-Metal to Rock.
In 1994 he started performing alone and moved to Vienna, where he kept his
head above water with piano lessons. His old-fashioned equipment didn�t keep
him away from recording two great EPs to date. He often collaborates with
other artists like Ilpo V?is?nen (Pan Sonic), Alexei Borisov (F.R.U.I.T.S.)
or Pomassl. Appeared as a Studiomusican for DJ Hell. Played one of his
powerful unbeatable live-acts of rocking electronica at mostly all big
international festivals of our time like Sonar (Barcelona), Avanto
(Helsinki), Mutek (Montreal), Club Transmediale (Berlin), Dom (Moscow).


Kemerovo (South West Sibiria, Russia) Radius was established in summer 2004
by Sergei Malkin. He was born in Kemerovo in South West Siberia where he
started his career as a professional film-cutter in his hometown. In the
early 90ies, he began to realize various successful musical projects.
Between 1991 and 2002 he released five solo albums under his FIZALIS
imprint. In 1995, the album �Polja tischiny� by NERO was released, a
collaboration with Mikhail Semjonov. Fractal Heads, a formation operated
together with Dmitrij Kravtschuk from Novokuznezk, is Sergei Malkin�s most
well known musical manifestation to date. Beside, as DJ Mutant he is
spinning records in several clubs all over Russia and releasing highly
popular mix-CD�s on his own dancefloor label Mediatone. He consequently and
conceptually uses latest soundgenerating technologies versus old and mostly
primitive free- and self-programmed software, as well as computers of Soviet
fabrics for his ends. Strange micro electronica and melodies with elements
of toy music. Seemingly compositorial infantilism in combination with
musical helplessness and genial dilettantism stays hidden behind serious
titles and highly professional production. Tracks are configured as short
pop songs � musical parts that are intensely influenced by children�s play
patterns. Radius� tonework style is unmistakable, original, excellently
made, experimental, powerful, funky fresh and even Siberian soulful.

 Carl Michael von Hausswolff,

Stockholm (Sweden), Swedish frequency war-loard, CM von Hausswolff has
nearly worked over 20 years in this border situations that occur in daily
life and music experience. He blurs the boundaries between traditional
classifications using radios, movement detectors, telephones, surveillance
cameras, sonartechnology and other appliances from the arsenal of equipment
that can be procured by certain (vetted) persons. Interferences,
interruptions and interdependences are various ways of altering conditions.

produced and set up.


Kiev (Ukraine). Katia Zavoloka is a young vital energic musician and graphic
designer from Kiev, where she started making electronic music in 2000. Her
music is very unusual and challenging from the structural point of view and
sometimes combines electronic sounds with rough unprocessed voices, sung by
common Ukrainian people. The sound of Zavoloka is very impulsive mixture of
rich, dense and often unexpected soundscapes, but at the same time it goes
into warm and nice atmosphere. The way she turned to later sounds like her
compositions shifted towards more abstract and unpredictable kind of music.
The aim is to reach interplay between the electronic context and rough
unprocessed voices that common people sing with. This produces a very
'human' outcome (owing to the spirit that unaffected voices bring), yet
staying electronically saturated, post-sounding and edgy. Zavoloka got an
honorary mention of Ars Electronica 2005 for her debut cd album �Plavyna�, a
split-release by Ukraine Nexsound label of Andrey Kiritchenko and Kotra and
