Cerith Wyn Evans (b. 1958, Wales) began his career as a video and filmmaker, initially assisting Derek Jarman, and then making short, experimental films during the 1980s. Since the 1990s, his work could be characterised by its focus on language and perception, as well as its precise, conceptual clarity that is often developed out of the context of the exhibition site or its history. For Wyn Evans, installations should work like a catalyst: a reservoir of possible meanings that can unravel many discursive journeys. Moreover, his work has a highly refined aesthetic that is often informed by the his deep interest in film history and literature. He has participated in numerous exhibitions: Venice Biennale (1995, 2003, 2009), 9th International Istanbul Biennial (2005) and Documenta 11 (2002) 

Florian Hecker (b. 1975, Germany) Hecker has been working with computer music, independently and in collaboration with other artists such as Angela Bulloch, Russell Haswell, Carsten Höller, Florian Pumhösl, Peter Rehberg, Marcus Schmickler, Yasunao Tone since 1996. Hecker’s works emphasize the connection of most recent as well as historic developments in computer music, hard- and software. Often working closely together with software engineers and scientists, his recent productions incorporate psycho-acoustic effects disorientating the listener’s spatial perception in live presentations and studio works. His full length solo recording, Sun Pandämonium, received the Award of Distinction at the Prix Ars Electronica 2003. 

In the biennial Cerith Wyn Evans and Florian Hecker are performing their opera No Night No Day For The Singer.
