Leo Bettinelli, basándose en la improvisación y utilización de objetos e instrumentos no convencionales, se sumergió en un mundo sonoro de infinitas posibilidades, de
acercamiento al inconsciente musical y lo incorporó a su vida, tanto en el campo de la
interpretación como así también en la organización de diversos ciclos de música
experimental en diferentes salas de Buenos Aires y Barcelona, contando con la
participación de reconocidas figuras del ambiente tanto local como internacional.
Editó por sus propios medios 9 discos de música experimental además de incorporar esta modalidad dentro de la música popular, editando dos discos más de reggae (cien volando) y electropunk (karmanoise) como productor e instrumentista y presentando en varias oportunidades estos y otros trabajos en directo.

Una vez llegado a Europa desarrolló también su faceta como fotógrafo y performer,
participando de varios festivales de arte y exhibiciones de fotografía, mostrando su
trabajo en los 3 campos: el musical, el fotográfico y la performance.
Actualmente dirige también la organización del festival artístico de carácter experimental e interdisciplinario “Niños Consentidos Barcelona”.



Sam Nacht:

Having studied several instruments both formally and self-taught, in ’99 Sam narrowed it down to the tenor saxophone, taking private lessons with Juan Ignacio Caino, Luis Nacht (no relation) and eventually Evan Parker. His interest in music lead him to study Electroacoustic Composition at the University of Quilmes (2000-06). A few years later he started teaching privately and then between 2006-09 at St. George’s College, Quilmes. By now he also plays a little clarinet, flute and trombone, regularly combining these acoustic wind instruments with the digital and analogical sound processes granted by the present music scene. He has developed these resources here in Argentina, as well as in Chile, Brazil and Europe, in stylistic contexts that range from jazz to noise, flirting with classical music, performing in intimate duets and riotous ensembles and even in sober and streamlined orchestras. The underlying motif throughout all of this music, however, has always been an inevitable component of improvisation and experimentation. Today, he improvises regularly in the underground scene in Buenos Aires.
His musical experience, nonetheless, has always been complemented by his theatrical beginnings. In 1998 he graduated in the Honours School of Drama from Manchester University, having participated as an actor, director and author in festivals in Edinburgh, London and Sao Paulo. He then worked as a technician in the Teatro del Sur in Buenos Aires (1999-2000). At the beginning of the millennium, his work in the music theatre company Mute turned out to be one of the most rewarding niches in which to make the most of all the accumulated musical and theatrical interests and experiences.
In addition to his artistic facet, Sam also works backstage with the Buenos Aires International Independent Film Festival (since 2006), the Buenos Aires International Festival, and as cofounder he also runs the eclectic nocturnal events of Niños Consentidos (Enfants Terribles/Spoilt Brats –both in Buenos Aires and Barcelona) and the weekly special Lunes/Martes sin Sentido (Nonsense Mondays/Tuesdays).
Due to his English nationality and bilingual nature, Sam also works as a freelance translator and interpreter, with special emphasis on collaborating with Argentine production companies.
