Through infec­tious har­mo­ny and melo­dy, Rus­si­an artist Kate Shi­lono­so­va makes joy­ful and adven­tur­ous pop music. It is also pati­ent, play­ful decep­tively simp­le but mas­ter­ful­ly con­struc­ted, at times char­ming and bit­ters­weet. Some points of influ­ence inclu­de a pink-to-blue gra­di­ent Japa­ne­se 80s mal­let-pop fee­ling and syn­th-wave tones, which Kate absorbs per­fect­ly into her own bold musi­cal iden­ti­ty.

Moni­ca Vlad designs and deve­lo­ps new media instal­la­ti­ons and spaces. She uses new tech­no­lo­gy as an artis­tic medi­um of expres­si­on and as a medi­um for the inter­ac­ti­ve and audio visu­al com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on. The sound of her per­for­man­ces is main­ly based on noi­se, ambi­ent, expe­ri­men­tal music, ran­ging from low to very high fre­quen­ces that one can bare­ly hear, from mini­mal to glitch, from ana­log to digi­tal.
