The compositions to be realised are lo wie's "CLOUD SCISSORS_trans", Stefan Thut's "four, four" and Akama's "proposal - six".

Ryoko Akama is a UK-based composer and performer whose work, ranging from text compositions to sound installations, pursues minimal, reductive, cumulative, and contemplative experiences. She directs the melange edition label and is co-editor of the independent publisher mumei.
Will Montgomery teaches contemporary poetry at Royal Holloway, University of London and makes electronic music, sound art and field recordings. He has released work on the Entr’acte, nonvisualobjects, Cathnor, Winds Measure, Organised Music from Thessaloniki and suppedaneum labels.
Stefan Thut is interested in processes and scores inviting both the performers and the audience to delve into a world. As well as conventional instrumentation, phonography as well as everyday materials serve as components of his work. His work has been performed at the Kunstraum Düsseldorf, Kid Ailack Concert Hall Tokyo, Gez-21 Saint Petersburg, University of the Basque Country Bilbao, and at Säulenhalle Landhaus Solothurn, among other locations.
