Introducing Cristian Espinoza

His research deals with issues of globalized Latin American territories decoding and jamming their signal flows.
He is operating in dense urban media spaces and likewise rual environments. Currently he is part of the artistic research project Corredor electromagnetico paulista, in Sao Paulo, and  just published an extensive field report.

Introducing Franziska Windisch

Operating in both sound art and visual art, her work moves between the areas of performance, text, composition and installation. She develops scores for performances and actions, that often address the notion of the trace, the medium, the finite and the unknown. Creating situations in which transformatory processes become tangible or setups with unpredictable or irreversible results are essential aspects of her artistic practice.

“There is a space, that is becoming, accidently or deliberatly, that is a creation of walks, of speech, of someone who listens.”

“Sonata For 4 Cardinal Points”, conceived for one performer and four megaphones attached to trees, draws attention to a zone that is never static. The 20-minute performance paces along the thresholds of a sensitive sphere and interacts with its changing dimensions: the public.

Introducing Bárbara González Barrera

Bárbara González Barrera audio-visual works are based on an extensive process of experimentation that is characterized by constant reconstruction, using multiple connected objects to address relations of space and time.
She performs actions as choreographic scores, open to improvisation, where the body functions just as one additional component to the signal chain .

Introducing Nicolas Spencer

His artistic works include concerts-performance and installations with emphasis in the sound. His exploration in this area ranges from the study of nature as a motor and inspiring source, the interpretation of low frequency sounds to the over imposition of concrete sounds.
For his project 969 ( anemOSC ) he traveled far south to Puerto Williams to work with the forces of wind.

Introducing Florian Tuercke and Rene Rissland

rare_spaces – a collaboration between Florian Tuercke and René Rissland – is a series of artistic investigations of the acoustic potential of spaces that are normally not accessible for the public.
The tools for this research are loudspeakers and microphones, while the experiments focus on the natural resonance frequencies and the reverberation-time of the individual space.
The investigation methodes are controlled acoustic feedback and impulse-responce experiments.
Each investigation results in a 10-15 minutes audio-piece that is an acoustic portrait of the individual space
