this reminds me of a group called skot i saw at the fuse98 *typography*
conference last spring in san francisco; two or three people at high-end
workstations producing not only amazing sampled/looped soundscapes but 
video projections; their brief as follows:

tina frank works in vienna as a graphic designer (inwirements) and runs an
internet agency (u.r.l.), mathias gmachi is a member of farmers manual, 
latest recordings, "explorers_we" have just been released by the or label 
london. as skot, frank and gmachi have directed several music videos for 
the mego
label; they have performed at the 1997 ars electronica festival, the 1997
viennale, and will create live projections for this year's sonar music 
in barcelona.

interesting work in a very dada/cut-up (although i'm sure they wouldn't 
it that way) vein.
