HOBBYDELUXE is a spanking new DDVJ team featuring dj Markiss (FCK), dj Toni Little (quick & brite) and vj Mike.TV (quick & brite). Markiss and Toni spin their dark and dirty records while Mike.TV fights off a dynamic visual mediawar. Expect more than static deejaying, because aside from all this mayhem, the trio occasionally gets tempted to play live acid improvisations.

1. Fear_lab
live cinema

Fear_lab is a project by Xander de Boer, Steven Heather & Siegmar Zacharias Part of Telling Time. They explore in this live-mix of image, sound and text the mechanisms of fear and the potentialities of the audiences imagination.
Trees and houses from train set models as well as cardboard sets create the backdrop for the audience fantasy. Foley becomes the sound-scape of the audiences projection, transmitted for everybody individually via head-phones. And text put together from political speeches, and films lets imagination run wild in search for a story. Everything is live, you have a choice. Watch the fiction or watch how it's been made. Lets play the game virtual reality in the dark. Don't worry you are not alone. Fear_lab is a laboratory. They plan danger through make-belief. How much are you willing to see with your eyes closed? How far can you go to the point of no return?

2. Keir Neuringer
audio-visual performance

Born in New York and based in The Hague, Neuringer's roots are in music, but he uses a variety of media to manifest his opposition to the destructive behavior exhibited and accepted by the dominant culture. His latest audiovisual work examines various territorial designations within the fragile and deteriorating international order in a live choreography of text, documentary and abstract imagery, and lo-/hi-fi electronic music.

3. Interactive Light Wall / Magdatt

ICW reacts to its surroundings. Waves of light and abstract color patterns are moving along with the passing audience. The interaction, size and futuristic design form a pleasant surprise. The Interactive Light Wall is designed by Magdatt aka Matthias Oosterink.

4. Résistance électronique

Résistance électronique is a VJ collective formed in 2004 by three HKU students. They like combining selfmade footage of characters with synthesized colour patterns and abstract forms. The guys perform live using controllers, cameras and audience participation.

5. Live: Ard Bit

Ard Bit is the brainchild of Ard Janssen, and is the moniker for his vision of abstract electronic music. Downtempo beats, atmospheric soundscapes, and a amount of melancholy, moulded in a fresh form, is characteristic for his music. In 1999 he enrolled in the Royal Conservatory of The Hague where he studied electronic composition at the institute of Sonology. He received his degree in June 2003.

6. Live: Tundra

Tundra likes a bit of cinematic drama in his productions, and with his experience on sounddesign, you won't find any corny samples or obvious drumcomputers. With a 1000 influences, and a musical taste as wide as the horizon, his sound keeps evolving everyday. Tundra's sound is best described as a blend of melodic techno and tough glitchy electro. Tundra is studying Sound Design, on the Utrecht School of Music & Technology where he is still going strong in the third year.
