Tujiko Noriko is a musician, singer, songwriter and filmmaker based in France. Shortly after her demo was discovered by Peter Rehberg and Christian Fennesz in 2000, she released her debut album “Shojo-Toshi” on the renowned Mego label (later Editions Mego). Tujiko has to date released over twenty critically acclaimed albums on the labels Editions Mego, FatCat, Room 40 and PAN. She has performed worldwide, including international festivals Sonar, Benicassim and Mutek.

Her 2002 album ‘Hard Ni Sasete’ received an Honorary Mention at the Prix Ars Electronica. In 2017, she co-wrote and co-directed with Joji Koyama the feature length film ‘Kuro’ which premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival and later streamed on Mubi. Tujiko has also written music for films, dance performances, animations  and art installations – she composed the soundtrack to the 2020 film ‘Surge’, which screened at Sundance and the Berlin Film Festival, and her music was included in the exhibition ‘Audiosphere’ at Museo Reina Sofia – the first exhibition in a major contemporary art museum with no images and no objects at all. Her latest album is Crepuscule I&II, from Editions Mego.

Austrian violinist, vocalist, sound artist and composer Mia Zabelka is at the forefront of international electro-acoustic performance art. She developed her unique musical language in a process she calls “automatic playing”, where the music grows out of her physical movement and finds its expression in her electric violin with electronic devices, alien objects, vocals, and/or the acoustic violin. Using this set-up, she expands her sound range so extensively that the violin itself becomes an interface, an electronic sound generator.

"Gripping, emotional ambient music that emphasizes the passage of time and holding onto what you love"Resident Advisor
"Intimate yet cinematic, the Japanese musician’s new two-part album exchanges her colorful pop patchwork for soft, luminous ambient music of alien beauty and human warmth. "Pitchfork
