Three music names
Skuta and Piacek have been collaborating for fifteen years on improvised and composition projects. The Acoustic Breakcore number is an exclusively acoustic performance in which the two musicians make use of the composition and interpretation experiences from various musical genres (classical, contemporary, free improvisation, jazz, noise, electronic, minimalist, serial music, electro-acoustic, pop, minimal, computer games music, etc).
Nisiru, member of the multi-genre collective www.afera.sk from the city of Martin is fresh blood to the Slovak electronic music scene, mostly performing minimal techno and electro compositions. As one of few DJs he nevertheless manages to do a multitude of stylistically varied set and connect generically incompatible tracks. The audience could have heard him at many clubs and at a number of festivals in Slovakia. He has gradually come to feel at home in neighbouring Czech Republic as well and as producer and re-mixer too. He has performed his sets at several radio stations, the most important of which may be Rádio_FM. Together with Funkatron he has formed a shock band called FunkyShitMafia, making music by using three turntables. If you have not yet heard his music, imagine a ping-pong performance of Richie Hawtin with Diplom and Modelselektor.
