This year’s theme is aimed to initiated a new sense of consciousness about the environment we live in.

Free spirit Molécule’s latest meta-sonic adventure led him north to Greenland. Upon his return, he produced a concept album — -22.7°C — named after the lowest temperature recorded during his trip to the confines of the Arctic Circle. -22.7°C is an audio sound album and transmedia project with an accompanying book of photographs and letters, a documentary film, and a virtual reality experience.

He was born in 1981 in Kanagawa, Japan and is living in Kyoto, Japan. His aesthetics create organic and complexity by emphasizing its characteristics while using technically minimal elements such as sine waves, pulses, dots, lines, and some calculated noise functions.

Galcid is Lena’s solo project. Lena’s electrifying live performances utilizing eurorack modular synths in addition to vintage and modern machines follow three simple 3 rules: NO PCs, NO Presets, NO Preparation! In December 2019, galcid released ambient works from Detroit Underground in digital and cassette tape format. The cassette tapes were sold out in one day in Japan and a week in the US!
