Dinosauruxia is a music project by two young Finnish ladies, lolis if you like, Emilia Lagk; a singing librettist, and Sanna Lehto; a multihanded pianist, creating a picturesque soundworld within multiple universes, one being their bedrooms packed with synthesizers, pianos and love letters never sent, and the others - places and thoughts they are constantly in touch with. myspace.com/dinosauruxiaofficial

VeniVidiVici is Leonardo Gabrielli, born 1986 in Recanati, Italy. Leonardo is an Italian musician and electronic engineer working in the field of sound synthesis. His mission is to find the perfect ingredients to bake sciences and arts together into a tasteful pizza. As a musician he uses to play jazz, funk and progressive rock. Within this solo project he aims to create quiet soundscapes, harsh beats and serial melodies by introducing some of his musical background composition techniques, such as progressive rock loops and tempo changes, to give shape to his own musical noise. His instruments include Electromagnetic noise generators, bugged sound processors, a wavelet mathematical synthesizer, sounding images, and hybrid physical modeling instruments, such as the Singing Clavinet.
