Diala Brisly

born in Kuwait/Syria, fled Syria in 2013. She now lives in Beirut/Lebanon but she's well known inside Syria for her work on a children's magazine that, amazingly, is still printed and distributed inside the country.

Her artistic work is about animation, film making, illustration, painting, art therapy and art teaching

Diala Brisly is working as a freelance artist since 2005

"I remember when we were still in Syria - a girl came to play the guitar for some kids, and when she went to take the guitar out, one of them started yelling and crying. He thought it was a weapon. It took hours to convince him that it was just an instrument.

There are so many things for them to deal with."




Kathrin Grenzdörffer

On the search for the boundaries of songwriting, Kathrin Grenzdörffer soon tapped into the experimental field. When she discovered the musical potential of everyday sounds, she could not stop exploring the sonic side of the weirdest places. Grenzdörffer graduated in electronic music with a project about the Port of Rotterdam, as she has always been curious about how to extract musical structures from field recordings, while emphasizing their narrative, social, and psychological implications. sonoscoop.com
