The Pololániks & Dimitris Papageorgiou

Being a regular five-piece band, then, makes The Pololáníks something of an oddity, along with the fact that the quintet meets for regular garage rehearsals, just like an aspiring indie band would – except, of course, there is no repertoire per se, just an infinitely developing interplay of five distinct musical personalities. The Pololáníks' core instruments are trombone, double bass, recorders, guitar/saxophone/ clarinet and laptop, but other, more peculiar DIY instruments and found objects (e.g. bowed CPU heatsinks) make frequent appearance.

Carl Bergstrøm-Nielsen

Hearn Gadbois

Carl Lindh
His main field of interest is listening, site-time specificity, improvisation and methods of documenting ephemeral sonic events . In his live set he primary works with hearing-aid devices, radio, record player and feedback. With this set-up he creates very fragile sonic situations where the space, the people and every single sound become a possible part of the performance. It sometimes move from the very subtle to the chaotic.

Michael Delia
Michael Delia is an artist whose work spans a wide range of disciplines and media. His work has encompassed paintings, sculpture, installations, and sound art as well as music performances.

Currently he is involved in theatrical-musical performances of Divadlo Vizita (Jaroslav Dušek) and also plays drums in the Široko-daleko [Near and far] musical ensemble.
