Peter Kutin works with sound across various genres. His compositions have been showcased, commissioned, performed, screened, or critically examined at numerous distinguished events and locations worldwide. His fascination with the intersection of auditory perception and visual stimuli extends beyond the realm of music. He has also conceived and supervised a range of experimental films, multimedia scenarios, and dynamic sound-light installations. In 2019, he was awarded the Prix Ars-Electronica for his kinetic sound sculpture, Torso#1.

Patrik Lechner is an artist creating experimental audio/video content since the mid 2000s. Developing custom software for these purposes, original content in abstract sound works and real-time 3D graphics arose through the exploration of technology without losing focus on artistic expression. He held audio/visual performances in Austria, Belgium, Italy, Bulgaria, Germany, Canada, Dubai, MUTEK Montréal, and MUTEK Mexico and regularly played at the Austrian Pavilion at the world exhibition in Shanghai 2010. Lechner is teaching at Music Univerity Vienna, UAS Salzburg and UAS St.Poelten.

Video artist Patrik Lechner utilises specifically trained neural networks to generate continuously evolving, uncanny, yet organic visual layers that bear an eerie resemblance to bodily tissues. These layers respond dynamically in real-time, engaging with Peter Kutin's brutalist yet alluring compositions and sonic gestures, which are frequently initiated or intentionally disrupted by custom-made light-audio-feedback mechanisms. Raw structures and eruptions are meticulously molded until a trance-like state emerges. The duo made their debut at MUTEK Montreal in 2022, receiving critical acclaim. They are currently in the process of developing and premiering a new iteration of their performance titled "ACHRONIC" for MUTEK TOKYO.
