Agnes Szelag experiments and designs in the convergent space between composition and improvisation, video and performance, the material and immaterial, producing electro-acoustic works, installations, and textural video pieces. As a composer, Agnes writes for her own performances and releases as well as many collaborations. She performs using cello, voice, and electronics--often incorporating visual media into her solo performances. As an installation artist, Agnes prefers to work with specific, forgotten sites, but has also transformed gallery spaces, buildings, and objects. Her work has been shown at Grace Cathedral, Bunkier Sztuki (Krakow), THE LAB SF, de Young Museum, Project Artaud, Artists Television Access, CCA, The Stone NY, Monkeytown, Streaming Festival, Cologne Online Festival and many more. Currently Agnes is a Creative Director at UC Berkeley managing a media and design team. http://www.agnesszelag.com/
Noise music of Japanese poetry. IMA is the duo of Nava Dunkelman x Amma Ateria, marching forth with fearless percussion, stark electronics, and filmic poetic vocals. Deconstructing and dissolving heavy music through restraint and release, IMA strives for a balance between meticulous detailed precision of instrumentation, and chaos of densities driven to brinks of breakage, situated by beautification in between.
Amma Ateria (HK)is an electro-acoustic composer with gravitation to white noise, construction sites, roaming traffic, inaudible conversations, and airplanes.
Nava Dunkelman (JP) is a percussionist and improviser born in Tokyo, Her sonic palette spans the globe from Japanese taiko to Indonesian gamelan, from classical to contemporary to the avant garde. https://www.imanoise.me/
Ernst Karel (b. 1970, Palo Alto) works with sound, including electroacoustic music, experimental nonfiction sound works for multichannel installation and performance, and postproduction sound for nonfiction vilm [film/video], with an emphasis on observational cinema. His recent solo projects are edited/composed using unprocessed location recordings; in performance, he sometimes combines these with analog electronics to create pieces which move between the abstract and the documentary. Recent sound projections have been presented at Sonic Acts, Amsterdam; Oboro, Montreal; EMPAC, Troy NY; Arsenal, Berlin; and the 2014 Whitney Biennial. Sound installations in collaboration with Helen Mirra have been exhibited at the Gardner Museum, Boston; Culturgest, Lisbon; KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; Audiorama, Stockholm; MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge; and in the 2012 Sao Paulo Bienal. Video with multichannel sound collaborations include Ah humanity! (2015, with Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Véréna Paravel) and Single Stream (2014, with Toby Lee and Pawel Wojtasik). Other projects include the long-running electroacoustic duo EKG, and the location recording/performance collective the New England Phonographers Union. CDs of his often collaborative work have been released on and/OAR, Another Timbre, Cathnor, Gruenrekorder, Locust, Sedimental, and Sshpuma record labels, among others. From 2006 until 2017 he managed the Sensory Ethnography Lab at Harvard University, doing postproduction sound for Vilms including The Iron Ministry, Manakamana, and Leviathan, and whereas Visiting Lecturer on Anthropology, he continues to teach a production class every other year in 'sonic ethnography'. ek.klingt.org
