Analogue synthesis shapeshifters Matt and Mark Thibideau experiment in turning machine capabilities into enveloping, beat-driven emotional vectors of sound, while Markus Heckmann's detailed geometric abstractions carry atmospheres of their own in symbiosis with the music.

Minimal techno producer and MUTEK regular Matt Thibideau has been making music alongside his twin brother Mark since 1989, beginning with industrial-pop electronics as Waxbean Orchard and later as experimental, infectiously rhythmic techno duo Repair since 2001 – a project inspired by the broken, vintage synthesizers in their studio. Both solo artists under several monikers for the past 20 years, Matt and Mark have played clubs and festivals the world over, exploring their vintage machine fixations in a true merging of past, present and future sounds of hypnotic dub, deep house and unclassifiable multilayered ambient artistry. A Technical Director with Derivative, the makers of TouchDesigner, Heckman works on major commercial and artistic projects, including installations for artist Carsten Nikolai, visuals for Plastikman and control applications for WhiteVoid's KineticLights. In parallel, he creates experimental installation work and non-narrative video signal analyzing experiments under the name Wüstenarchitekten, exploring the spatial quality of music by artists such as Carsten Nicolai, Vladislav Delay and Kangding Ray.

In a deep-diving live audio and visual set, Heckmann and the Thibideau brothers elaborate on their ongoing collaboration as they open for Max Cooper's galactic audiovisual journey Emergence.
