Artist Bio's below.

Ross Bencina (Melb.)

Ross Bencina is a freelance composer, performer and software developer who
works at the leading edge of electroacoustic music practice. He holds a
B.A.(hons) in electroacoustic composition from La Trobe University.

Ross's music draws from traditions of studio electroacoustics and live
improvisation. His performances involve dynamic manipulation of synthetic
and real sound, using software he has developed for this purpose. Ross'
performance activities have included collaborations with acoustic
performers, and solo performances in Australia and abroad. He is a member of
the Simulus improvising electroacoustic ensemble.

Ross is the creator of AudioMulch Interactive Music Studio - software for
music composition and performance, and the founding developer of PortAudio,
an internationally recognised platform for developing audio software. Ross
is the sole proprietor of Sonic Fritter Pty. Ltd., a company providing
software and hardware solutions for audio related applications.

Scott Sinclair (Bris.)

Scott Sinclair improvises with prepared guitar and electronics. He creates
sound at purely acoustic (found objects and junk) and electronic (feedback
networks and digital noise) extremes; often layering these elements into
sustained tones and singular scrapes - repeated forever or only heard once.
The result is something akin to dissonant layers of metallic 'thunk'. Scott
is currently a coordinator of Small Black Box, Brisbane's performance and
listening space dedicated to experimental music. This is his first guitar
performance since What Is Music? in Brisbane in February!

Hydatid (Bris.)

Hydatid's (David Loose) music has evolved somewhere around the peripheries
of electronica and sound art, producing a fusion of ambient sound scapes,
prosaic beats and abstract melodies and skilfully composing these elements
to create an aesthetic of contemplation. David has been composing electronic
music through an exploration of digital media, focusing on attributes
uniquely digital - these being its non-linear nature, its format (ie. sample
rate and bit depth) and the algorithms used to manipulate it. This
performance is part of an ongoing work entitled "Studies in Particle Motion"
whereby the artefacts of sound processed through MAX/MSP begins to
organically take on a new context.
