Alongside Walker sit prominent international artists of the ilk of US improvisational legend John Zorn, Austrian visual and multimedia artist Hermann Nitsch, Japanese noise guitarist Keiji Haino, and avant-garde turntablists Christian Marclay US and Philip Jeck UK . Also in the collection are works from US doom metal ensemble Sunn O, electronic composers such as Ryoji Ikeda Japan and Fennesz Austria , French musique concrete artist Jerome Noetinger, German producer Florian Hecker, Jim O Rourke and Sonic Youth.
