Cameron Deas improvises on 12-string guitar and modular synthesizer: a live processing of acoustic sounds, providing what he calls a 'wooden frame to an electronic music'.

Setherian is a Brazilian sound artist who says he converses with the alien creatures residing in his electronic devices to create 'eclectic and unpredictable sounding ecosystems'.
