NOHE NOSHE are Petr Step Kisur (founder of the Honey Suckle Company art collective) and Eleni Poulou (The Fall). They make healing music with synthesizers and an Indian harmonium.
Kišur is founder of the collective Honey Suckle Company, with which he has exhibited at PS1 in New York, KW Berlin, and Kunsthalle Basel. Eleni Poulou is a Greek musician, DJ, and poet. She has recorded and toured world wide with groups like The Fall and Shizuo, is currently recording with Slurge/Wolfgang Seidel, Bomb Sniffing Dogs, and as ULR with James »Jeanette« Main. Current projects include collaboration with Andre Vide and Zolt Sores, as well as regular shows on Cashmere Radio and Movement Radio.
As Nohe Noshe, they have performed with Konrad Sprenger in 2019 at the Honey Suckle Company exhibition »Omnibus« at the ICA London, at Kunstverein Braunschweig, and at the Albertinum Museum in Dresden together with Sabina Maria Van der Linden. Other performances include the Holosounds 4 Festival, Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, and an anti-fashion show in Athens on Lycabettus Hill in 2021, in collaboration with the artist run space 3 137 and Goethe-Institut Athens. They composed music and created the trailer for the Dior Cruise Collection 22.
Recently, they have recorded with Zappi Diermaier, Schneider TM, and the Singing Machine created by artist Martin Riches.

ORGANZA RAY are connecting pathways of knowledge through sound, discovering shimmering entrances and underwater arches. 400 years of long notes, open bags and dancing butterfly blues.

Zsolt Sőrés and André Vida have been playing together in different formations since 2013. Their Berlin-based duo Un-garians is a continuation of their more focused collaboration that was born as a result of their work together since 2018.

In addition to traditional concert situations and studio music, their music, based on real-time composition and site-specific improvisation, is also characterised by a materialist approach to sonic ontological actionism. Such as Vida's "breathless saxophone music" project, or new, custom-developed, extended sounding, interactive instruments in electroacoustic environments, or participation in concert installations and sound installation-intermedia art projects.

Through the performance of their works, they primarily question the changing position of musical language in the 21st century: instead of the traditional and less relevant improvisation-composition dichotomy, the sonic practical possibilities for sonic interpretations are sought in the context of music vs. sound object.
