BIOS

Gabriel Brncic (b. 1942 Santiago de Chile) is a composer, pedagogue and specialist in electroacoustic music and musical technology, based in Barcelona after his exile from Buenos Aires in 1974. Artistic director of Phonos electroacoustic music laboratory of Barcelona since its foundation in 1974 as well as associated lecturer of the Cuenca’s Electroacoustic Music Cabinet since 1989. Brncic’s work—fostering the creation of several studies in electronic music and as tutor for a number of generations of composers—presents a capital importance in the history of Spanish electroacoustic music. “Quodlibet” is a series of works in progress since 1967 on the structure, form and problems of notation and reading in instrumental and electroacoustic music.

Mercè Capdevila (b. 1946 Barcelona) is an artist educated in l’escola Massana Barcelona and Kunsthandwerk Schule Pforzheim, and electroacoustic musician educated in Phonos Laboratory of Barcelona and worked in the study of Aaron Copland from the University of New York at Queens College as a guest composer (1993-1994). She is one of the founders of AMEE (Spanish Association for Electroacoustic Music and Sound Art) in 1987. Since 1985, she is interested in, and working on, multidisciplinary montages: murals of light and sound, electroacoustic and laser performances, or electronic and light projections.

Bryan Eubanks (b. 1977) is a musician composing electronic and acoustic works for small ensembles, solo instruments, and custom generative software; improvising in collaboration; and working with acoustic holography, a stereophonic recording and diffusion technique. Since 2001 he has been developing electronic systems and instruments, participated in many collaborative projects, and has presented his work internationally. Primarily an autodidact, he received an MFA in 2012 from the Milton Avery School of the Arts at Bard College.

Lucio Capece is an Argentinian musician based in Europe since 2002, specifically in Berlin since 2004. After 12 years focused in Electro Acoustic Improvisation he dedicates in the last years, to works focused in the Perception experience, that he performs in solo and in the context of collaborations based in the same interest. He uses tools like Flying Speakers hanging from Helium Balloons, Speakers as Pendulums, Analog synthesiser, Sine Waves and Noise Generators, Drum Machine, Ultra-Violet Lights as much as the instruments that he has played for 25 years: Bass Clarinet and Soprano Saxophone. He has also written compositions for small Ensembles working the same aspects in the context of traditional Instrumentations. Beyond instrumentation and tools, the main intention is to focus in the physical-social-spatial human experience.

Merche Blasco is an interdisciplinary artist and composer based in New York—is currently a Ph.D. Candidate at NYU. Her practice revolves around building new instruments for electronic music performance, orchestrating participatory sound performances in public spaces, and electroacoustic improvisation. In this piece—part of a sound installation for 8-channel speaker system premiered in CCCB (Barcelona) and then in Fridman Gallery (NYC)—, the footsteps of passers-by in different transitional contexts overlap with the sounds of public instructions¬—Unconsciously, the chaos of individual footsteps resolves gradually into one unified cadence.

Miguel A. García, from the Basque country, works focuses mainly on composition and electro-acoustic improvisation. He uses sounds taken from electronic devices residues, often interrelated with field recordings or acoustic instruments, in the search of an intimate, intense and immersive experience, questioning the borders between electroacoustic academic music and noise experimental music.

Reyes Oteo (b. 1982) is a violinist, performer and composer. Her compositions usually combine contemporary symphonic music with experimental electronic techniques. She has invented, developed and composed for interactive electronic instruments such as Fructophone, Interactive Skirt, Phoenix Stone, Stone with Nails, or Light Glove.

Kaffe Matthews is a pioneering music maker who works live with space, data, things, and place to make new electroacoustic compositions. The physical experience of music for the maker and listener has always been central to her approach and to this end she has also invented some unique interfaces, the sonic armchair, the sonic bed and the sonic bike that not only enable new approaches to composition for makers but give immediate ways in to unfamiliar sound and music for wide ranging audience.

Burkhard Beins (b. 1964, lives in Berlin since 1995) is as a composer/performer working in the fields of experimental music and sound art. He is known for his definitive use of percussion in combination with selected sound objects. Furthermore, he works with live-electronics/analog synthesizers and has conceived several sound installations.

*Premiere in Berlin.
