- Joanna BailieJoanna Bailie’s recent work includes chamber music and installation, and is characterized by the use of manipulated field recordings and other sound media together with acoustic instruments. She is also interested in the interplay between the audio and visual as evidenced by her works incorporating camera obscura, and film.
- Malin BångMalin Bång’s music is an exploration of movement and energy. She defines her musical material according to their amount of friction to create a spectrum of unpredictable and contrasting actions, ranging from the intimate and barely audible to the harsh and obstinate. In her work she often incorporates acoustic objects to explore a rich sound world and to suggest that a musical content can be shaped by anything valuable to the artistic purpose.
- Michael Beil
© Pedro AnguilaMichael Beil’s work focuses on the combination of electronic music, instrumental music and video. His compositions are based on concepts concerning the situation on stage in a concert in connection with the development process of musical works. Therefore the instrumentalists are mostly involved in the compositional process and their participation is documented to be part of a composition.
- Alexander ChernyshkovAlexander Chernyshkov experiments actively in building unique new instruments of strictly acoustical and mechanical origin using long tubes to transform the wind instruments or using motors, relays and electromagnets as vibrating sources.
- Christine CornwellChristine Cornwell (UK/US) is a composer, performer and producer based in Rotterdam with strong links to free improvisation, collective practice, and facilitation of interactive, multi-disciplinary work. Christine has a Masters in Classical Composition from Codarts University of the Arts, and a Bachelor in Music Performance (violin) from Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. She is currently studying an MA Arts and Cultural Entrerprise at Central St Martins, University of London.
- Louis d’Heudières
© Nina KuttlerLouis works across the mediums of writing, live performance and installation, seeking to speculatively (re)imagine pasts, presents and futures of musical production and reception. His work is characterised by stream-of-consciousness descriptions of recorded sound; pseudo-intellectual ramblings underpinned by hobbling instrumental pulses; speakers talking to floors; transcendental climaxes squeezed through MIDI timbres; paranoid associations between musical details and religious hegemonies; decadent rituals pairing Wagnerian harmony with fine cheese.
- Natacha Diels
© Alfonso SalgueiroNatacha Diels’ work combines choreographed movement, improvisation, video, instrumental practice, and cynical play to create worlds of curiosity and unease.
- Vladimir GorlinskyVladimir Gorlinsky is a composer, an improviser, an author of spatial compositions and sound installations.
- Rama Gottfried
© Melanie ChalleRama Gottfried's recent works aim to increase our sensitivity to the web of relations that connect humans and the other animate and inanimate entities that surround us. His pieces are conceived as scenographic worlds — bodies with voices that move and interact in physical and immaterial environments, constructed from the medias of acoustic and electronic instrumental performance, puppet-, object-, material-theater, live-cinema, and the site-specific performance context. Brought to life through the collaborative actions of human and nonhuman performers, the works attempt to absorb the audience and physical space, subtly expanding our awareness of detail.

- Pierre JodlowskiPierre JODLOWSKI is a composer, performer and multimedia artist. His music, often marked by a high density, is at the crossroads of acoustic and electric sound and is characterized by dramatic and political anchor. His work as a composer led him to perform in France and abroad in most places dedicated to contemporary music aswell as others artistic fields, dance, theater, visual arts, electronic music. His work unfolds today in many areas : films, interactive installations, staging. He is defining his music as an (active process' on the physicall level [musical gestures, energy and space] and on the psychological level [relation to memory and visual dimension of sound]. He also performs on various scenes (experimental, jazz, electronic), solo or with other artists. He is co-artistic director of the éOle studio in Toulouse and Artistic Director of Musica Electronica Nova Festival in Wroclaw, Poland. He is currently associated composer for the Composition Cursus at IRCAM

Exploring longitudinal wave phenomens on nylon strings, undertones on string instruments, friction on different structured surfaces, activation of instruments and objects by mechanical and sonic motors, the plastic materials for constructing new resonance spaces and developing analog vocoder for wind instruments and the voice.
- Jessie MarinoJessie Marino's work explores the repetition inside common activities, ritualistic absurdities, and uncovering nostalgic technologies. Jessie’s pieces score out sound, video, physical movements, lighting, and staging, which are then placed within organized temporal structures, fractured narratives and musical frameworks. Much of Marino’s interdisciplinary compositional work eschews conventional instrumentation, with scores that ask performers to use their bodies—using precisely articulated gestures, facial expressions, and quotidian physical movements—both as an alternative and a complement to musical sounds.
- Adriana MinuAdriana Minu (UK/RO) is an intense vocal performer, a sound performance maker, a fierce collaborator. For the past four years she’s been working full time on her practice based PhD in experimental composition, investigating how to increase trust and safety around processes of making that allow fuller participation and expression. She sometimes teaches at University of Glasgow and runs relational sounding workshops for musicians and somatic practitioners. For the past year she’s been a visiting researcher at Concordia University in Montreal.

- Marina Poleukhina
© Jennifer TorrenceMarina Poleukhina’s musical focus lies in composition and improvisation on various objects and the instability of sound; silence and silence as the sound; real life and real life as sound. amongst others she is inspired by ligeti, nono, feldman, waits, yoshihide, and hosseini.
- Stefan Prins"In his compositional work Prins seeks to critique received convention, to break the framework of the usual, and dispose of aesthetic axioms. He envisions a musical art form beyond the safe confines of the »scene«, wherein the connection to the larger cultural discourse has gotten lost. A central pre-condition for the making of a new music with a future is the role of the aware, critical observer, one who is prepared to exploit the technologies and mechanisms of the prefabricated media with a view to their possibilities for new music. – Stefan Prins lives up to this calling." (Michael Rebhahn, 2012) Besides his activities as a composer, improviser (live-electronics) and teacher (Professor of composition & director of the Hybrid Music Lab at the Hochschule für Musik Dresden), Stefan Prins is also one of Nadar’s two artistic directors.

- Alexander SchubertSchubert’s interest explores cross-genre interfaces between acoustic and electronic music. The most characteristic feature of his work is the combination of different musical styles (like hardcore, free jazz, popular electronic music, techno) with contemporary classical concepts. He incorporates these influences based on his personal experience rather than theoretically approaching the topic. Schubert has participated in his youth and early career in all above-mentioned genres both in groups and as a solo artist.No data was found
- Martin Schüttler
© Seth Mooner AbdelatiSchüttler's aesthetic focus is on the recontextualization of social, mediatic, performative, spatial, biographical, political and physical conditions of music. In his compositional practice, he deliberately relies on disparate sonorities, structural imbalances and sonic diversity – often interspersed with pop culture references.

- Simon Steen-Andersen
© Clars SvankjaerSteen-Andersen’s works live in the passages between the simple and the complex – in a field in which orchestral music, video art, choreography, performance, music theatre and installation are mixed with sampling, pop-culture references and game-aesthetics in surprising and thought provoking ways. His works therefore present a pronounced expansion of music, where no material is too fine or too simple to be given careful attention, taken apart, and assembled anew.
- Lisa StreichLisa likes to work with motorised instruments of her own creation in her music. She is fascinated by the de-subjectivization of sound, which for her becomes universal, speaking of and for everyone. She is also interested in the incongruent contrasts that can arise on both visual and auditory levels at the same time.
- Cathy Van EckCathy van Eck (1979 Belgium/Netherlands) is a composer, sound artist, and researcher in the arts. She focuses on composing relationships between everyday objects, human performers, and sound. Her artistic work includes performances with live-electronics and installations with everyday objects. She is interested in setting her movements, actions and gestures into relationships with a rich palette of different sounds, exploring peculiar sonic sceneries. The result could be called “performative sound art”, since it combines elements from performance art, electronic music, and visual arts.

- Jennifer Walshe
© derVisagist.com"The Irish composer Jennifer Walshe nails down, better than any artist I know, the antic, raucous, confessional, sordid, semi-sublime texture of modern digitized life. At the age of forty-six, she has established herself not only as a composer but also as an electrifying vocalist, a sly comedian and storyteller, a fertile maker of videos and visual art. Yet she comes across less as an all-knowing mastermind than as a free-spirited instigator of happenings that threaten to spiral out of control." Alex Ross (The New Yorker)
