Berlin

aaron spectre (moonbunny / struktur / berlin )

aaron spectre makes digital sounds with a distorted soul, fragile melodies sprinkled with urban grit, grime layered over dense harmonies. grown in boston, hardened in the nyc pressure cooker, and engineered in berlin, aaron works in a number of different styles from ambient to glitchy melodic electronica to breakcore to ragga jungle. aaron's live sets reveal his hardcore + punk roots, in aesthetic if not in sound. refusing to sit motionless behind a laptop, he tweaks and re-works tracks on the fly with varoius midi controllers, hammered dulcimer, plus a bundle of energy and diy enthusiasm. aaron has played throughout europe and north america, with artists such as mixmaster morris, richard devine, dj vadim, hrvatski, /rupture, datach'i, soundmurderer, and kim cascone.

[sic] [http://www.squirrelgirl.com/]

[sic]: Sound artist and producer Jen Morris prefers avoiding the beaten tracks. She brings an earned legitimacy to her introspective compositions, which are constructed from fleeting sonic contrasts, dissonances, and impositions. Using sources as diverse as the Japanese koto and assorted field recordings, [sic] remains aloof and bemused. Deep in the analog cabin, she records and processes the sounds through a variety of ornery effects mechanisms. The final product provides a refreshingly soothing atmosphere in which one can either bathe, exercise, or make love. When [sic] hits the road, her eerie soundscapes are accompanied by equally arresting visuals, comprised of digital imprints from her sordid life. The [sic] roadshow has travelled extensively in Europe, from tiny Ilirska Bistrica to bustling Berlin, where she performed at the 2004 Transmediale.

Sylvain AubŽ [http://www.monochrome.ca/]

A discrete but long time scenester of the underground local scene, Le Monochrome's newest project is based on digital deconstruction. Inspired by creative artists as Stereolab, Kraftwerk & Mouse on Mars, the breed of electronic music he creates distinguish itself from the most typical forms of dancefloor-oriented techno. In a live setting, Le Monochrome uses his own found samples filtered through softwares such as MaxMSP and Plogue Bidule. His general aesthetics stands between raw experimentation and an hedonism often inspired by kitsch.

Ben Bogart (www.ekran.org/ben)

Ben is an installation artist and programmer. He works in an open-source context and makes all the software he develops, that is of general use, available under the GPL. His installations create content live and on the fly in response to the work's sensed environment. These works may involve interaction from the audience as a part of the environment, or the work may simply respond to the context in which it exists. Ben is a structural thinker and imagines his work as the production of media architectures. Physical modelling, chaos, feedback systems and evolutionary algorithms have been used to inform and and engage in his creative process.

Ben has just completed the first development phase of the Open Territories project pixelTANGO. pixelTANGO is a pd/Gem powered live-visual tool to mix 3D graphics, video and network streams. Ben has been collaborating with the Open Territories team at the SAT for the past year in developing this project.



Jeremy Rotsztain (www.mantissa.ca)

Jeremy creates automated and interactive contexts for collaborative creative expression. His recent projects include experimental systems for semi-automated sound synthesis and a real-time painting simulator. Jeremy also developed the Bix Simulator application - a 3D simulation of the Bix Media Facade in Graz, Austria.

Los Osos, CA

Isabelle Jenniches http://www.9nerds.com/isabelle/

Dedicated to a nomadic existence, a connection to the internet is her single most important constant. Recent bases have included Amsterdam, New York and Los Osos, California. In her work, which often evolves out of close collaborations with others, she exploits the social and emotional impact of new forms of mediated communication in theatrical situations, using, for example, telepresent characters. In performances and photographic series that seek out the intersections between physical and virtual space, she often draws upon such "low tech" sources as the public or private webcam, and her ongoing compulsive collections of found footage from the Internet. Real-time collaborative creation plays an important role in connected performance events and she is a devoted if mostly remote participant at Share.

New York City

JODI SHAPIRO (jodi@lexiconoclast.com)

Remember lying in your bed at night, in the middle of the summer? Windows wide open, listening to street noises and, if you were lucky, the rumble of an elevated train in the distance? Jodi Shapiro does. Armed with a laptop and her memories, Jodi performs music under the name burun (most of the time.) Often beatless but not rhythmless, undulating uneasily, a sort of "environmental memory music" that is strangely familiar but slightly out of context. Each performance is composed in real-time with sounds collected from near and far.

burun has made the circuit of NYC laptop-oriented events (UnityGain, Opiate, Undercity, F:T:H, Share), was a resident artist at all three HellLabs, participated in last year's PsyGeoConflux festival, and played a set of remixed videogame dialogue at the New York Video Festival's Game Engine night (at Lincoln Center - finally, a gig her parents could brag about!) More recently, she collaborated with Hong Kong video art collective Videotage for STAR CITY, where she provided audio accompaniment using only audio collected in Hong Kong's streets, markets, and transit systems.

http://www.lexiconoclast.com/burun has more details about All Things Jodi, should you care to take a look.



ERIC REDLINGER

I'm interested in developing cool systems for data exchange - to blur the lines between performance and everyday emotional expression - to help computers become creative tools instead of hurdles. a dry bio is at http://ecumedesjours.com/eric


Michael Liegl
