About the Artists

Frank Bretschneider
Frank Bretschneider is a musician, composer and video artist based in Berlin. His work is known for precise sound placement, complex, inter­woven rhythm struc­tures, and its minimal, flowing approach.

An alias of Raster label co‐founder Olaf Bender, Byetone presents minimalist rhythm‐based music with a rock attitude that can do without too much processing and decoration; an archaic, rebel­lious music full of energy.

Mieko Suzuki
Mieko Suzuki is a Japanese DJ and sound artist based in Berlin. Mieko’s sets create a constant tension between the delicate, the raw and the daring. Folding together and finding connec­tions between the subtle textures and qualities of different genres, Mieko’s exper­i­mental approach always gives careful attention to space and to the people.
