"Properly mental beat and sound science lying somewhere between IDM and escape-velocity electro.” Restless introverted moon-child Katatonic Silentio is a music deconstructionist who finds expression through wasted sounds and psychedelic atmospheres. Droning scenarios are combined with rhythmic noise and schizophrenic digital impulses into complex structures, mentally resonating in syncopated rhythms. Driven by ARTivism, sound art, cyberfeminism & queer culture she is an open end of the possibilities of techno. Mariachiara is also a boss of her label Cyberspeak Music, built around multidisciplinary collective in Milan, Italy. Her releases can be found on Biodiversità Records or label One Instrument.
Antje Meichsner aka Shannon Soundquist is a sound artist, experimental music producer and DJ based in Dresden, recently she is a Media Art student under Carsten Nicolai/Alva Noto (Raster Noton).

She presented her work at Cynet Art Festival, ECAS Festival, DAVE-Festival or at Hörspielfestival Berlin. As active feminist she is a part of DJ-collective Prozecco (Dresden), Soundsystem Femtek (Berlin, Leipzig, Dresden) and one of organizers of political street rave Tolerade.
