Antoine Beuger : dedekind duos
Julius Wilhelm Richard Dedekind (1831 - 1916):  Mathematician. He developed the idea of cutting into the continuum in order to define the irrational numbers and to comprehend the essence of continuity (Stetigkeit und Irrationale Zahlen, 1872). He was also the first to formulate a clear definition of infinite sets (Was sind und was sollen die Zahlen?, 1887). By taking the infinite set as the fundamental concept, from which the concept of a finite set is to be derived, he very calmly, with clarity and precision, carried out a Copernican revolution in thinking about the world. He thus gave strong support to his friend Georg Cantor's project of a mathematical description of the world in termsof pure multiplicity (set theory). Dedekind had a lasting influence on both the substance and the style of modern mathematics.)

Duo Contour
Since their formation in 1998 at the Darmstadt Summer Courses for New Music, duo Contour have commissioned and performed over 40 new pieces by composers from Asia, Europe, New Zealand, Switzerland and the United States. Their collaborative work has combined the acoustic world of trumpet and percussion with dance, electronics, improvisation, origami, story-telling, theatre and video, as well as and with other musicians in their 'duo Contour plus….' programmes.  The duo has been resident at the Banff Centre for the Arts (Canada), were featured in the Bangor New Music Festival (Wales), the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival (UK), the Percussive Arts Society International Conference (Texas), the SINKRO Electroacoustic Music Festival, (Vittoria, Spain), the Slowind Festival (Ljubljana, Slovenia) and UK Microfest.
