This combination of artists is sometimes dubbed the electronic music super group, it embodies a classical elegance with a free form jazz feel that's all filtered through their masterful and precise production capabilities. Theirs truly is a fantastic performance, coming from three prominent-if-not-legendary producers.
Carl Craig is one of the biggest names in Techno, often credited as spearheading the second wave of Detroit Techno. For this set his rig consisted of his laptop, a large keyboard/MIDI controller and a few other large pieces of hardware (samplers, drum machines and a loop station).
Moritz Von Oswald is a Berlin-based producer who co-founded the label Basic Channel and the production group Rhythm & Sound, both of which are influential names in the world of minimal techno and ground breakers in the fusion dub music and techno. Oswald had his own laptop, a large mixing board interface and a few controllers. He seemed to have control over the total output, mastering and global effects in addition to any production contributions.
Oswald and Craig produced an LP "Recomposed" together that was released in 2008, that was a neo-classical techno work of art that shows influence from Philip Glass, Steve Reich and others. Craig has also been sitting in on certain dates of the Moritz Von Oswald Trios last tour, including their performance at Detroit Electronic Music Festival last year.
Francesco Tristano is a graduate of Julliard who now resides in Barcelona. Tristano is a modern classical and jazz pianist who has composed albums in both fields. After releasing a collection of classic electronic covers from artists such as Autechre, Jeff Mills and Derrick May, he quickly caught the attention of electronic music community. Coupling his formal training and education with his dance music sensibilities has made him a top name in the experimental electronic music scene. Tristano played behind a large rig of different electric keyboards that were all mixed in his own laptop which then runs into Oswald's rig.
