is a German countertenor and artist from Berlin. He studied opera at the UdK-Berlin and works in a nexus of different artistic disciplines. His work encompasses a syncretism of musical, performative and experimental elements that strives to dissolve the boundaries between genres.
As an opera singer, he debuted in the main role for Jamie Man’s opera “Zelle: Wenn es dunkel wird”, at performances in Antwerp, Valencia, Lisbon and Zug. He appeared in Pan Daijing’s experimental music theater “Tissues” at London’s Tate Modern, as well as on the recorded version of the piece which was released by Pan Records in 2020. The past couple of years has seen Katona hold roles in several more performances across Europe, as well as making his debut as a composer at the “Musik Installationen Nürnberg Festival” with his composition and performance "Strings".
is hollowed out club music for the post-anthropocene. The debut album Scree (High Heal, 2018), inspired by ancient history and the vestiges of our own time, explores evolving polyrhythmic melodies and composition within a pre-defined tonal structure. Its follow-up Exhumed & Forgiven will arrive in the summer of 2023. The live performances consist of his own renditions of Norwegian folk songs, and improvisations on drums and modular synthesizer.
Live performer and composer Jon Eirik Boska has put his hands to a host of electronic music projects for over a decade, including his own releases and improvised live performances as Boska, commissioned pieces for Tromsø International Film Festival and Bergen’s EKKO Festival, as well as working with award-winning Czech dark-pop outfit Fiordmoss.

In 2021 she participated at the Amplify Berlin residency under the mentorship of Yair Elazar Glotman under the moniker Hildegarda. Since then she’s been working in different music constellations and has played concerts for disparate venues and institutions such as CTM Vorspiel, BPA//, KINDL, Lucy Railton’s Shadow Sequences, and silent green Kulturquartier, among others. In 2023 Agnese will undertake a residency at EMS in Stockholm to finalize her first solo record, as well as working on a joint project with FRANKIE.
Philipp Hülsenbeck is a Berlin-based musician, working in the field of experimental electronic music. Together with long-time collaborator Sin Maldita, he founded the exploratory record label and art platform Unguarded and curated events such as the six label nights as part of Berliner Festspiele at ICC Berlin, events at Silent Green Kulturquartier and Trauma Bar und Kino Berlin. Philipp’s music is a push and pull between discordance and tranquillity, between delicate compositions and heavy club atmospheres.
His first record “Garden Of Stone” and the following collaborative album “Reaping From The Conflux” with organist Michael Schönheit, commissioned by Gewandhaus Leipzig, are teetering between acoustic instrumentation and digital manipulation. He was part of the orchestra for Black Cracker’s reinterpreation of Wagners Ring der Nibelungen score for Schauspielhaus Zürich, and recently created a 4-Channel sound piece as part of the exhibition on the Australian Karrabing Collective at Haus Der Kunst München.
At the moment Philipp is preparing the release of his club oriented debut under the Uxile moniker via Unguarded early August, as well as a new commissioned collaborative work with organist Michael Schönheit that will be premiered at Nikolaikirche Leipzig. He recently picked up the soprano saxophone again to be part of upcoming performances and sonic experimentations.
