Xico Ribas is a classical trained pianist and a music creator with a strong focus on electronics, experimentation and improvisation. When he graduated in classical piano at ESMUC in Barcelona, he decided to change his artistic direction. In 2020, he finished his first masters in improvisation (also in ESMUC) and in 2022, Xico graduated from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam in Live Electronics. During his last master, he researched ways to make electronics with a degree of noise in order to make music on which chaos and rules interact and dance between each other, always giving birth to a new creation.
Agota Tamelytė is a young musician with interest spanning from classical music to improvisation and electronics. She hails from Lithuania with a strong classical upbringing at the National M.K.Ciurlionis school of Art. Seeking to freshen her artistic direction, Agota moved to Rotterdam and enrolled at Codarts University where she majored in jazz piano. Subsequently, she completed Master's degree in Live Electronics at Conservatorium van Amsterdam in 2022. Her artistic goal is to present her perception of past, present and future by applying musical techniques and technologies.
