UTE WASSERMANN

Ute Wassermann is a composer/performer and interpreter of contemporary music. “Ute Wassermann has developed many special multivoiced vocal techniques, catalogued by register, timbre and articulative sequences which may be deconstructed and/or superimposed and used to explore spatial resonance phenomena. (Freedom of the City)” Since 1984 she developed many special multivoiced vocal techniques.

She has collaborated frequently with composers who have created works especially for her voice, including Henning Christiansen, Richard Barrett, Chaya Czernowin, Hans-Joachim Hespos, Sven Åke Johansson, Ana Maria Rodriguez and has performed with many ensembles and orchestras including ASKO, KNM Berlin, ELISION, and Münchener Kammerorchester.

ROBERTA WJM 
Roberta WJM Andreucci is a percussionist, an experimental producer and DJ, and on air personality. She has more than twenty year of experience organizing and promoting alternative music events. She practices plagiarism and the cutting and mixing of musical and ambiental aural sources. Early in her career she started focusing on the use of voices and on vocal metalinguism, focalizing on her personal practice of “cuttingandslicing” and on rhythm patterns obtained through an improper use of her tools of the trade (cdjs, cd player, md, me mixer). Through the years her percussion set morphed into a hybrid encompassing a dj booth, a radio dj one, a microphone station for electroacustic experiments, and a mnemonic butcher’s slab. She is a founding member of performing music units such as Jealousy Party, Semerssuaq, and Sistemi Audiofobici Burp. She is the director of the music label Burp Publications.

ANAÏS TUERLINCKX 
“I believe in Noise as a richer musical source than tones. I want to reveal the physicality of the piano as a dirty monster. I expect the audience to shiver with me thanks to the vibes from inside the piano. Music as a channel for the exchange of fluids and energies in the most direct way possible. The piano is not an instrument but a partner that helps me express the unspeakable.

I feel I want to get absorbed by and take the audience into the noise (as I feel when I listen to some concerts by others) and a wall of sound where you cannot really distinguish the sources of the sound, where everything is melting into an impossible cry, when you feel like many voices are screaming but there are no voices, when you come into trance and you begin to get sonic hallucinations, when your body shakes from the extreme loudness and power of the basses, when music is liberating destruction. Of course these words are strong and it is probably an utopia to get there but I want to believe in it and work harder to slowly move in this direction.”

AUDREY CHEN (US)
Classically trained and formerly specializing in early and new music Chen currently uses cello, voice and analog electronics to delve deeply into her own version of narrative and non-linear storytelling.

A large component of her music is improvised and her approach to this is extremely personal and visceral. Her playing explores the combination and layering of a homemade analog synthesizer, preparations and traditional and extended techniques in both the voice and cello. She works to join these elements into a singular ecstatic personal language.

JD ZAZIE (IT)
Coming from a DJ and a radiophonic background JD Zazie has explored over the years different approaches of real-time manipulation on fixed recorded sound.

In her work she redefines DJ and electroacoustic activities. The typology of the sound-sources varies from already existing audio publications and sound effects, to self recorded audio files – as live-set and field-recordings -, to selected pre-mixed material. Juxtaposition, decontextualization, fragmentation, repetition, sonic texture, scratch and error are elements of the grammar adopted to relate, organize and rearrange the sound material following her “Äpfelzerstörer’s method”.

ANNA FRIZ (CA)
Anna Friz is a Canadian sound and radio artist currently based in Chicago, where she is a post-doctoral fellow at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her dissertation forher Ph.D. was entitled “The Radio of the Future Redux: Rethinking Transmission Through Experiments in Radio Art.

Since 1998 Anna has predominantly created self-reflexive radio for broadcast, installation or performance, where radio is the source, subject, and medium of the work. She also creates dynamic, atmospheric sound works for theatre, dance, film, and solo performance that are equally able to reflect upon public media culture or to reveal interior landscapes.
