Cura Machines
Cura Machines is the new pseudonym of composer, producer and sound designer Daniel Lea, who previously released two albums under the name L A N D on Important Records: Night Within (2012) and ANOXIA (2016). He has collaborated over the years with artists such as Ben Frost, David Sylvian, Yair Elazar Glotman, Leo Abrahams and James Kelly (WIFE), and has contributed sound design and melodic parts to Ben Frost's latest record, The Centre Cannot Hold, and collaborated on a L A N D track with David Sylvian on vocals, entitled "Nothing is Happening Everywhere". Besides from his noteworthy sound design work in many quarters, Lea has built up a musical range that is intensely visual and filmic that gives rise to an aural storytelling firmly pushing contemporary music and new-classical boundaries.

Caterina Barbieri
Caterina Barbieri
Repetition and pattern permutation lie at the core of Caterina Barbieri’s current sonic research. She has composed music for old and new synthesizers as well as for string instruments.Her focus on minimalism in composition arises from a meditation on primary waveforms and exploration of the polyphonic and polyrhythmic potential of sequencers. By means of synthesis, pattern-based operations and additive canons, her music draws severe geometries in time and space.

Her work explores themes of machine intelligence and object-oriented perception in sound through approaching music practice as an integrative cognitive feedback between humans and technology. She has performed major shows at festivals including Berlin Atonal, Berliner Festspiele’s Maerzmusik, and Norbergfestival as well as compositions for theater and multimedia presentations. The Wire magazine has described her music as “a trip deep within the mothership — hypnotic and beautifully disorientating.”
