DAINA DIEVA (Kleipèda, Lithuania)
DD is a sound constructor / video maker. A graduate in philology and audio & video technologies, she is interested in various ways to apply the language and in various languages - from programming, to the language of signs, individual languages and the language as a way to transcend the "me" defined by the origin, place of birth, race or other mostly externally definable features. The perseverance to understand and to redefine one's inner language and express it in means available to her, is traced throughout all of Daina's creative works - live shows, music & soundscapes, videos, writings. Daina Dieva music has been defined as "post-folk", "poetic", "dark", "hypnotizing", "cold". Usually during live show she performs one composition of a duration of half an hour, during which the listener is "guided" over a story told in long drones, live vocal sampling and wrapped up in series of echoes.

OORCHACH (Vilnus, Lithuania)
Oorchach – this word means an iron ring, in Siberian Khakas region used to be ringed through bull-calf's nose to prevent sucking mother's milk. This domestic artifact represents an archaic, tribal attitude towards existence. A form of ring, circle gives possibility to interpret it more widely. This shows the aesthetic direction of Oorchach's music, but doesn't restricts it too much – it inspires, but not dogmatizes. By sound, Oorchach could be described as ambient-ritual driven postindustrial music. But again, this is only guidelines, tenting not to tie ourself with stylistic restrictions.
