Melissa Cruz Garcia is a multidisciplinary artscientist. She builds installations, optical machines and objects; she uses resources such as light and optical principles, analog mechanisms and environments that intend to put her audience in a situation in which it actively becomes part of her work. "I aim to question different notions of reality. The link between art and science lead me to produce makeshift projections, thus creating an optical link between our concepts and perceptions of the world around us."
Aleksander Kolkowski is a composer, violinist, sound artist and researcher. His career as a professional musician has spanned over 30 years and, over the past 15 years, Kolkowski has explored the potential of historical sound recording and reproduction technology; combining his unique collection of horned string instruments with gramophones and wax cylinder phonographs, to make contemporary mechanical-acoustic music. Kolkowski is the first Sound Artist-in-residence at the Science Museum, London, where he creates work based on the collections.
Matteo Marangoni invents machines to stage theatrical sound performances and environments. He focuses on the potential of listening to establish new connections between people, places and objects. Matteo Marangoni's performances and installations employ field recordings, sound archives, computer programming and DIY electronics. Finding unconventional uses for audio technologies and other media, he probes the relationship between sound, space and the body, approaching the body of the listener through physical experiences that collapse and reshape the space between subject and object.
Anne Wellmerhttp://nonlinear.demon.nl/ is a composer and performer of electronic and experimental music. She uses field recordings, live computer processes and analog synthesizers to create interactive compositions, peformances, site specific work, installations, audio-walks and live music for dance and theater. She tells stories and explores sonic spaces. Finding ways to reveal otherwise imperceivable phenomena and making them audible have become one important aspect of her practice.
