In a circular arrangement made up of the audience and the artists, the interplay of sound and space will be newly explored, turning it into a holistic experience.
JASMINE GUFFOND is a musician, artist and composer working at the interface of social, political and technical infrastructures. Focused on electronic composition across music and art contexts, her practice spans live performance, recording, sound installation and custom-made browser plug-ins. She has exhibited and performed live internationally, and has recorded music for the Staubgold, Monika Enterprise, Sonic Pieces and Karlrecords labels. Her work draws upon influences from experimental electronic, drone, techno and avant-garde music. Working with abstract sound as much as traditional musical forms, she translates data into deeply engaging compositions.
JAN JELINEK is a musician, producer and remixer. His works deal with the transformation of sounds, translating source materials from popular music into abstract, reduced textures. Bypassing traditional musical instruments, he constructs collages using tiny sound fragments from a wide variety of recording devices including tape recorders, digital samplers and media players. The recordings are processed into repetitive loops that boil the original sound down to its essential components. Jelinek has collaborated with, amongst others, the artist Sarah Morris, the writer Thomas Meineke and the Japanese ensemble Computer Soup.
