Situated in Reykjavik amid the buzzing Icelandic music scene, GENKI Instruments focuses on fusing music and technology in a natural and intuitive way. The Wavefront BLOCK coupled with their innovative WAVE ring allows for unprecedented sound control, effects shaping and manipulation via physical hand movements for unique control of BLOCKS and REAKTOR.
Holon.ist incorporates real world data into sound for immersive, physical experiences. The Holon.ist BLOCK pairs with Holon.ist iPhone app to control subtle accents and rhythmical modulations from leaned postures. Trigger sounds or effects naturally and use external sensors to enhance existing instruments or turn your surrounding and objects into musical instruments.
ACL is Berlin based duo Martin Schoenauer and Stefan Lewin. Based on their own extensive experience with modular synthesis, Eternal Space is an innovative dual delay / stereo delay for sustained, pad-like and spatial effects utilizing 5 delay lines and a clever system of internal delay and diffusion structures to transform even a short signal into an ocean of eternally floating sounds.
