Haco is a composer, vocalist, electroacoustic performer, sound artist, and a founding member of After Dinner (1981-1991) and Hoahio. She has created numerous recordings both as a producer and engineer based in Kobe. In her live performances, she uses voice and self- programmed electronics as an organic method. With her "howling pot" performances, which make creative use of feedback, and "Stereo Bugscope," which captured oscillating sounds emitted by the circuitry of an electronic device, she had developed a new genre of art.

Haco will be bringing new songs from her seventh album Qoosui (Someone Good/Room 40). She uses voice and self-programmed electronics as an ‘organic method’ in her performance, accompanied by video images shot and edited with Mariko Tajiri. Qoosui has won critical acclaim from music and art magazines and has been played on numerous radio programs in Europe, North and South America, Oceania, and Japan.

“My view is ‘no borders’ when it comes to sounds for creating new music. I want to open my ears and find the rhythm and tone for all ofthe sounds in my life.” – Haco




Hailed as a key figure in Czech experimental-electro music, Tarnovski is a musician, composer and producer, one of the founding members of experimental pop band Miou Miou and the Czech post-everything quartet Gurun Gurun.

Named after a fictional planet from the old school Slovak sci-fi TV series ‘She Came Out of the Blue Sky‘, Gurun Gurun’s musical work combines analogue synthesizers, manipulated field recordings, piezo-amplified objects, DIY instruments and effects to span musical spaces ranging from hypno-minimalist atmospheres to warm tones of slow moving, repetitive melodic stanzas.

His performances commonly include a mixture of glitch electronica, musique concrète, drones, computer deconstruction, quirky sonorities and field recordings. He also runs Jipangu, a small label focused on experimental music and sound art.
