MimiCof / MIDORI HIRANO (PROGRESSIVE FOrM, Kyoto)
A native to Kyoto, Japan but making the creative pilgrimage to Berlin in 2008, Midori Hirano’s productions are based around the use of traditional instrumentation – piano, strings, voice – and augmented with often subtle electronic processing and digital samples creating a rich, rolling sound that is at once warm and melodic while tracing unexpected musical trajectories. Under her MimiCof moniker she focuses more on electronic textures and beat-oriented music.
Festplatten-Recycling: re-spule (aka Thomas Mahmoud)
Composer / Improviser / SoundDesigner. He is known for deconstructing and recycling beats and sounds in such projects as Krieg der Töne, X-Blox Exit!, 8steps, Khan & Mahmoud, Mahmoud & Boombastik, Grandmaster Softgott, Tannhäuser Sterben & das Tod.. He lives in Berlin and works on his new album: re-spule. ‘M.A.D’ (Mensch Am Draht)
