Derek Holzer [USA 1972] is a sound artist with a background in radio,
webstreaming and environmental recording. His work focuses on capturing
and transforming small, unnoticed sounds from various natural and urban
locations, networked collaboration strategies, experiments in
improvisational sound and the use of free software such as Pure-Data.
He has released tracks under the Nexsound, Sirr, and/OAR and
Gruenrekorder labels, and has co-initiated several internet projects
for field recording and collaborative soundscapes including
John Richards’ (1966) work explores performing with self-made
instruments and the creation of interactive environments. He has worked
with many leading improvisers and musicians in the field of live
electronics, and is a founder member of electro-noise improvisers
kREEPA, the post-punk group Sand (Soul Jazz Records), and the
composers’ collective nerve8: an experimental electroacoustic diffusion
group. Recent concerts have included performances at IRCAM (Paris),
Fylkingen (Sweden), the Bent Festival (Los Angeles), Sonar (Barcelona),
and the Purcell Room, Southbank Centre (London).
In 2002, his work with kREEPA helped initiate the OIK project at STEIM,
Amsterdam, that involved the hacking of commercially available hardware
to create economic musical interfaces. Since 2005, he has directed the
Dirty Electronics Ensemble, giving workshops and performances
internationally that has included collaboration with Japanese noise
artist Merzbow. He performs regularly with Nic Bullen as Black Galaxy
and kREEPA, as well as releasing solo material on Bullen’s label
monium. In 2007, he released a piece on Gabriel Prokofiev’s
nonclassical label for piano and electronics performed by GéNIA with
re-mixes by Vex’d and Max De Wardener amongst others. Recent work
includes collaboration with Tim Wright as sevenlegspider developing
systems for live performance and installations.
He has written numerous articles on hybridity, post-digital theory and
dirty electronics: DIY and bricolage approaches to working with sound.
John Richards completed a doctorate in electroacoustic composition at
the University of York in 2002, and he is currently part of the Music,
Technology and Innovation Research Centre at De Montfort University,
Leicester. Since 1990, he has also taught improvisation at Dartington
International Summer School.

member of apo33, Julien Ottavi is involved in research and creative
work, combining sound art, new technologies and construction of
electronic devices. An activist in the free software movement, he
participated in the production and the diffusion of APODIO free
multimedia software (www.apodio.org). He participates in, and produces,
numerous events such as conventions of researchers, artists and
activists, sound art or multimedia festivals, workshops on free sofware.
Martin Lukanov (Electroacoustic improvisations on no-input mixing boards).
Martin is a young Bulgarian electroacoustic improviser and composer,
free jazz pianist, noise artist and sound engineer born and residing in
Sofia. His main subject is the feedback and instrument - the no-input
mixing boards. His electroacoustic work is full of minimalistic, almost
"static" pieces, created with extremely high frequencies. His main
interest, represented in his works are the micro frequency "fights" and
the "presence" of the sound (some of the pieces are "quiet" for some of
the audience due to the frequencies used, but the feeling of a present
sound is always noticeable). He has performed in many european cities
and between July and September will do his first asian tour in places
like Indonesia, Laos, Macau, Vietnam and more. He has played and done
collaborations with artists like Hiroshi Hasegawa (Japan), Peter
Gossweiler (Brazil), Bernhard Gal (Austria), Belgrade Noise Society
(Serbia), Konstrukt (Turkey) and many more.
John Bowers works with home brew electronics, self-made instruments and
reconstructions of antique image and sound-making devices, alongside
contemporary digital technology. He is concerned with making
performance environments that combine sound, vision and human gesture
at a fundamental physical level. Recent work includes projects to build
a music synthesizer using 19th century techniques (The Victorian
Synthesizer), explorations of random circuitry (Ohm-My-God), a
miniaturisation of Brion Gysin and Ian Sommerville's Dreamachine (My
Little Dreamachine), and a reconstruction of early television
technology (This Nightlife Instrument). He was recently artist in
residence at Fylkingen in Stockholm. He is co-founder of the Onoma
Research label and also plays electric guitar in the fundamentalist
noise rock band Tonesucker. John Bowers is part of the Interaction
Research Studio, Department of Design, Goldsmiths, University of London.
Disinformation is a noise DJ and installation art project which (since
1995) pioneered the use of electromagnetic (radio) noise from sources
such as live mains electricity, lightning, domestic, industrial and IT
hardware, TV sets, laboratory equipment, trains, magnetic storms and
the sun as the raw material of musical and fine-art publications,
exhibits and events. Disinformation has been the subject of twelve UK
solo exhibitions, experienced by well over 100,000 people, and is
described by The Guardian as producing some of the most beautiful
Mick Grierson is an experimental artist specialising in real-time
interactive audiovisual research, with specific focus on cognition and
perception. He works in film, music, and software development, both
inside and outside industry, designing, developing and producing new
approaches to creating audiovisual experience. In addition to working
in traditional roles in film and television, he has designed commercial
audiovisual software for the entertainment industries, which has led to
several high profile commissions, including title design and digital
audiovisual installations for the hit TV show Derren Brown: Trick of
the Mind. In January 2008, he collaborated with the Sonic Arts Network

the Mabuse Audiovisual Composition Software Environment. He is
currently working on a three year fully funded AHRC project on
audiovisual cognition at Goldsmiths Electronic Music Studios.
Ryan Jordan is a UK based artist working with DIY punk electronics,
