Eskmo
Eskmo, aka Brendan Angelides, is a Los Angeles-based electronic music producer and innovative live performer whose multi-genre compositions have been featured on influential labels like Warp Records and Planet Mu. Although club and radio DJs readily spin his music, Angelides always performs his work live. His innovative, emotive on-stage performances utilize Ableton Live software with various MIDI controllers to manipulate keyboard work, effects, warping and cueing.



Zoë Keating
Zoë Keating is a one-woman orchestra. She uses a cello and a foot-controlled laptop to record layer upon layer of cello, creating intricate, haunting and compelling music. Zoë is known for both her use of technology - which she uses to sample her cello onstage - and for her DIY approach, releasing her music online without the help of a record label.



Moldover
Hailed by over 1,000,000 YouTube viewers as "The Godfather of Controllerism", Moldover is a new breed of music icon. Combining the charisma of a rock star, the mad genius of a basement inventor, and the radical inclusiveness of the DIY internet generation, Moldover is "literally throwing away the rule book and reinventing the wheel" (Remix Magazine).



Nonagon and Colin Evoy Sebestyen
Having collaborated on numerous occasions over the last four years, Nonagon and Colin have prepared an all-new audiovisual experience for REBOOT:music. As a performer, Nonagon (aka John Brian Kirby) brings the skill and technique of a traditional instrumentalist to the cutting-edge of live electronic music. His live sets are heavily improvised through hands-on manipulation of a carefully-curated combination of commercial and hand-built hardware and software. Academy of Art University professor Colin Sebestyen creates cinema-quality live concert visuals from an all-original palette of 3D rendered imagery, motion graphics, and manipulated photography. Colin combines the immediacy of live performance with the multidisciplinary study of design, animation, and code.



Rich DDT
Rich DDT is an interactive installation designer, live electronic music producer/performer, and event organizer who is passionately repurposing the latest technology to create an awe-inspiring, open and supportive environment for human connection. Rich Detonates Dance Tracks in live electronic music performance with his ControlliTAR. His music is live looped and electrifying for a future-dub glitch fest of fiercely contagious bass blasted world flavors.
