Rees Archibald is a sound based artist from Australia who just moved to Lithuania and is currently based in Germany. Originally a saxophone player, he spent several years in Japan, studying traditional Zen music. Later, working with composers Alvin Lucier, Ron Kuivila and David Behrman, he studied electronic music composition.
Phillip Schulze (*1979, Germany) is a media artist and composer, working in the field of time-based and site-specific art. His work is oscillating between different artistic forms of expressions. On one hand, he focuses on compositions for classical instruments, algorithmic compositions, electroacoustic music via synthesizers and self constructes software instruments.
Kota Yamauchi, born in Kyoto, Japan in 1986. Improvised performance by using the electric guitar frequently as prepared guitar and sound source to make experimental soundscape and creating the sounds of audible scenery. He released his 1st cassette called „In the Sento“ on the independent cassette label „hoge tapes“ from Kyoto. The recording is a live performance from a Japanese traditional bath house.
Riona Inoue, born in 1993 and living in Kyoto. VJ performance to capture images produced from self-made devices such as turntable remodeling and project them in to cameras, and installations and video works made by unique methods are characterized by strange textures between digital and analog.
Janneke van der Putten (Amsterdam, 1985) is a visual artist and performer based in Rotterdam. Her practice involves experiences of listening, performances, sound and video, documentations in image/text/textile, workshops, music projects, and creating platforms for cultural exchange. Her voice is her main tool, guiding her through physical and sonic explorations in different landscapes. Engaging with specific sites and local contexts, and through her personal experiences, she investigates (human) responses to her surroundings, and their relation to natural phenomena and transitions, such as the sunrise.
The artist Anna Schimkat, born in Darmstadt in 1974, understands art, in the sense of the notion of exhibitions by Lucy Lippard or Szeemanns, as science, as experimental layout for questioning all different aspects, such as science itself. After finishing her studies at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, she stayed for some time as a guest at a research institute for neuroscience, where she was specially interested in visibility of perception and brain processes, due to modern technology of the magnetic resonance tomograph (MRT). She implements her investigations in human cognition primarily with her sound installations, that are always meant participative, too. In her works Anna Schimkat not only asks herself, but also the viewer how we are gathering experiences and how we achieve consciousness about the formation of experiences.
Chrs Galarreta (Lima, PE) is a musician, composer and installation artist living between France, The Netherlands and Peru. In his sound-based works he uses broken electrical appliances, hand-made audiovisual instruments, field streamings and -recordings, feedback systems, the induction of errors in the software-hardware, and musical instruments. He researches and highlights the acoustic qualities of bodies and spaces, and transduces them imperceptible physical phenomena to an audible dimension – as electromagnetic fields, subaquatic sounds or otoacoustic emissions, among others.
