Martin Gasser


Rüdiger Wassibauer


Lulu Schmidt

Trained as a computer scientist and musician/artist, Martin Gasser works on multi-disciplinary projects and focuses on Sound&Music.

Computing and on applications of Artificial Intelligence&Machine Learning technology to music, other media, and the arts

in general. His thinking is strongly human–centric. Machines should assist humans, not replace them.

Martin Gasser is well-versed in several programming languages, frameworks and major desktop operating systems. Furthermore, he is experienced in development for mobile and embedded devices. He is not only in academic as well as industry experience, but is also an avid musician.



Rüdiger has been conquering ever since or at least upholding his privilege. He was gifted with an outrageous opinion about nothing. Rüdiger was an artificial influencer long before ants were discovered. Deep inside he always just knew that Rüdiger was right. Today he cruises out his remaining century, laid back on his laurels, high on dad jokes. In his spare time he lets people know about future. Rüdiger is one of the internet's earliest and obviously most relevant and dedicated bio waste influencers. He trains AIs for fun and writes invoices for a living.

Carola Schmidt is an academic artist who is a master student of Rebecca Horn. Carola's artistic journey has been focused on the topic of transformation and identity, and the transitions from emotional object to emotional state.

Her work is exploring the boundaries of self, identity, and technology in art, always investigating the boundaries between the roles of the artist and the viewer.

With her alter ego Lulu Schmidt, she has taken this exploration to new heights, seamlessly moving between fashion, dance, film, fine art, and music.

On stage, Lulu Schmidt explores the rites of energy canalization.

Channeling the longing for the almost religious moment of surrendering to one's own divinity by connecting to something bigger than ourself to overcome the increasing self-alienation in society.

There's a playfulness and irony at work, and a nod to the religious ecstasy that can be achieved through artistic creation.

Verein zur Erkundung multimedialer Ausdrucksformen 

are Kristina Gorke & Bernd Gutmannsbauer (aka Die Gorkbauers). The association strives to provide a platform for artists of all proveniences by organizing exhibitions, performances, artist talks, concerts, workshops, philosophical reading circles, (musical) theater pieces for children and for adults, film festivals, and cognate activities. The basic idea of the accomplices’ endeavors is to either acquaint an audience with hitherto unfamiliar impressions within accustomed spaces or, vice versa, to lure a well-versed audience into uncharted territories. In both cases, the aim is to distract and relieve from all to disdainful mental grind. accomplices collaborated with numerous artists and institutions like steirischer herbst, Designmonat Graz, [kunstwerk] krastal, Gesellschaft für Kulturpolitik, InTaKT Festival, kunst off-space narrenkastl, Schmiede Hallein, and others.
