OTO Emissions by Thomas Ankersmit
In these live spatial-sound performances Ankersmit explores the phenomenon of “otoacoustic emissions”. These are sounds that are created inside the ears of the listener, by the ears themselves, in response to certain stimulus sounds that he creates. These “sonic hallucinations" offer an intimate and highly disorienting acoustic experience, where a slight movement of the listener’s head can completely change what he or she hears.

FIBER presents: Recursions by Cyspe & DEFRAME 
Recursions is a new audiovisual performance by musician/composer Robin Koek and audiovisual artist collective DEFRAME. In this layered show the audience experiences a dialogue between image, sound and space. Epicentre of the performance is a kinetic sculpture - based on the work of cybernetics pioneer Nicolas Schöffer - which merges live video, software-generated visuals and electronic music. By linking the sculpture to algorithmic softwareRecursions is a play between self-organization, control and losing control. The result: a unique live set based on an unexpected collection of frequencies and patterns.

Synaesthesia by Michele Abolaffio 
‘Live body exploration of sound and light’
This project aims to explore the musical and corporeal performance practice built upon the active stimulation of the senses of sight, hearing and the perception of the muscles. The performance is based on a synesthetic system composed of wearable sensors that respond both to bio-signals and dynamically controlled lighting. This live performance consists of a solo live set in which Michele is the sole presence on stage and manipulates the creation of sound and light based on his own corporeal stimulations and his intuition.

For ADE16 he sets up an engaging studio laboratory where he presents two machines and where he also performs with one of these: Sonoscope. Sonoscope projects oscillating waves in water. He joins forces with producer and artist Albert van Abbe (NL) to create a multi sensory wavescape experience.
