DENIS KOLOKOL (Krakow, Poland)
Denis Kolokol is a Ukrainian sound artist, composer and performer living in Krakow, Poland. His performative career began at the Replica Festival in Almaty, Kazakhstan.
“Acute sensitivity causes extreme unpredictability. Music can be organized this way. Chaotic maps that include algorithmic attractors can produce streams of numbers that resemble organic growth or formation of a cyclone. These same numbers can be mapped to parameters of sound: pitch, duration, density, attacks and decays, spectral characteristics, etc. In this way I build small audio models of much broader systems full of collisions, storms, cyclones, and furiously moving masses of matter.”
ID M Theftable (Portland, ME)
Well off the path, near Portland, Maine, ID M Theftable resides. From here he sends his ears to find him sounds, hands to sweep up matter, and with his mind whisks them into chimerae of sound, substance, gesture, and silent laughter.
“ All in all, it's a comprehensive clusterfuck of all levels of culture and weirdness” - Vice
Christina Stanley is a bay area based violinist, composer and vocalist who holds an MFA in Music Performance and Literature from Mills College. Her original painted graphic scores were featured this year at the Outsound New Music Summit in San Francisco. She performed recently in the world premiere of Roscoe Mitchell’s “Would You Wear My Eyes” for chamber orchestra.
GLOCHIDS (Tempe, AZ)
Glochids is James Roemer, desert field researcher, gamelan experimentalist, cross-country cyclist, and bricoleur extraordinaire. Roemer plays various instruments and objects, including homemade found-wood Sonoran dulcimer, a language learning computer with punch-card interface, cactus quills (glochids), street sweeper kalimba, and electronics. Roemer’s sounds tend to blur with their backgrounds until the focal point becomes the self-same ear of the beholder.
