About the performers

Klaus Filip and Noid

Klaus Filip is a performer, composer and programmer, and a pioneer in the use of laptop computers for musical composition and performance in Austria.
He leads the software development project known as ppooll (formerly “lloopp”), a freeware which is widely used by improvising musicians all over the world.
The main focus of his current work is sinewaves, whose subtle and adducent sounds are used in a wide dynamic range.
As a sound artist, he attempts to cross the borders between sound and light.
Teaching position at the University of Applied Arts, vienna. Steady dispute with the computer as a musical instrument.

noid understands his work as fundamental research leading to a wide range of contradictory outcomes,
spanning from cello-solo and tape-pieces to compositions for ensembles, improvisation scores or performances with electronic or hybrid instruments, from sound-installations to videos and imaginary music.
He curates for the monthly series “Der Blöde Dritte Mittwoch” and an annual Sound-Art exhibition in Nickelsdorf.
He teaches at the Multimedia-Art department of the University for Applied Science in Salzburg.



The comeback of the optosonic synthesiser
A live performance by noid and Klaus Filip.

Most traditional synthesisers put a strong emphasis on reproducibility and the stability of pitch. Therefor they need big and complex mechanisms usually realised inside a black box.
For Sonic Luz the priority is a maximum of flexibility and the possibility for haptic interaction on all the parts of the tone production.
By moving the lamps or the toneweels on the table, or changing the discs, the composition of the sounds can simply be manipulated, quick and intuitively. The machine has no interior that could possibly hidden, everything is laid open for the audience and generates a performative aspect of great beauty.


Meng Qi

Meng Qi has multiple identities. He is not only a electronic musician, but also a synth designer, a programmer and a teacher. Meng Qi has released various albums, such as Landscape in Love / Landscape on Live and others, and has published a series of modular synthesis tutorials on midifan and ZiHua. Apart from college teaching, he has also conducted building workshops and lectures in various places.

Meng Qi is a pioneer of Chinese contemporary digital art, and is famous for his music and distinctive devices and instruments, which have been using by electronic music artists all over the world.
