Nora-Louise Müller (Germany)
has collaborated with numerous well-known composers in her intense occupation with contemporary music, including performing in the Composer in Residence program at the contemporary music festival chiffren – Kieler Tage für Neue Musik.
In 2007, she began working with an extraordinary instrument: the Bohlen-Pierce clarinet which uses a (very!) different harmonic tone system. As one of only five clarinetists worldwide who perform on this particular instrument she was invited to enrich the first Bohlen-Pierce conference in Boston, Massachussetts in 2010 with her performances, and will be playing this radical instrument in festival DaNes.

Bernhard Mikuskovics (
"Just as the manifold beauty of light reveals itself in the spectral colours of a rainbow, we experience the manifold beauty of a single tone in the sound colours of its overtones."
Overtone singer and multiinstrumentalist Bernhard Mikuskovics started to research on ethnic instruments after graduating from a school for graphic design & printing processes and has been working since then extensively on various eclectic art projects surrounding music, painting and literature.
