Lauri Hyvärinen is a guitar player from Helsinki, Finland. For most of his life he has concentrated on experimental and improvised music as well as noise. He works to find a balance between an instrumental impulse and a respect for silence and presence.
Nicola Hein is mainly concerned with the search for new sounds on his instrument, the guitar. He plays electric and acoustic guitar with or without preparations and tries to find new ways of playing the guitar within the context of Free Improvised Music and Jazz. He plays the guitar with his hands and plectrum but also with a lot of different objects: screws, rulers, iron wool, violin bow, abrasive paper, magnets and many other objects which are part of his musical vocabulary. The result is his very own world of sounds.
