Technic Crew

Zazie Bullowich. Sound Engineer
is an italian DJ, avant-turntablist, sound artist and curator. Over the years she has explored different approaches of real-time manipulation on fixed recorded sound sources.
 As a performer she moves in an area which is constantly stretching the borders of what is supposed to be DJ mixing, free improvisation and composed music. 
Juxtaposition, decontextualization, fragmentation, repetition, sonic texture, scratch and error are elements of the grammar adopted to relate, organize and rearrange the sound material.

Matt Burnett. Sound Engineer
is interested in sound creation via self-oscillating systems, and the development of a vocabulary of motion within a quadraphonic listening environment. He created and curated a quadraphonic multimedia performance event titled „Immersion[]“. Recently he has completed the development of The QuadTool, a software system that provides the basis for synthesis, composition and performance within the quad space.
