Gabriele Agrimonti was born in Parma (Italy) in 1995 and in 2016 he was admitted to the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse in Paris. He studied improvisation and composition with Thierry Escaich, László Fassang, Thomas Ospital, Thomas Lacôte, Yves Henri, Olivier Trachier and others. In 2021 he won the Haarlem Improvisation Competition with unanimous jury evaluation, and he also won prizes in St Albans, Strasbourg, Paris and Toulouse.

Franz Danksagmüller studied organ, composition and electronic music in Vienna, Linz, Saarbrücken and Paris. From 1999 to 2005 he was organist and composer of the cathedral of Sankt Pölten (Austria).
In his music Franz Danksagmüller likes to combine acoustic sounds with live electronics. Franz Danksagmüller repeatedly collaborated with scientists, for example from CERN in Geneva, looking for ways to use data as the starting point for a musical journey.
Together with saxophonist Bernd Ruf, he recently presented buxtehude_21, in which the two musicians bridged the gap between Baroque music and live electronics. Since 2005 Franz Danksagmüller has been associated with the Musikhochschule Lübeck.
