:::: ANDRE VIDA |  http://www.vidatone.com ::::

Andre Vida (b.1974) is a Hungarian American saxophonist, composer and
lyricist living in Berlin. Vida has been at the forefront of several major
developments in experimental music, including his membership in Anthony
Braxton’s original Ghost Trance Ensemble, his recent world record of 403
half hour performances at the Serpentine Gallery responding to Anri Sala's
film Long Sorrow, performances with The Tower Recordings, and his extensive
collaborations with electronic music visionaries Jamie Lidell, Tim Exile,
Kevin Blechdom, and Rashad Becker.

Vida has developed a series of philosophical approaches to improvisation
using restrictive costumes, animated graphics based score installations,
and self made instruments. His solo saxophone pieces are the culmination of
this focused improvisational thought, combining the theatrical aspects of
his body, instrument, and voice. For his Ohrengala performance Vida will
extend his experiments with physical restriction by integrating a simple
touch composition idea in collaboration with Letizia Monae.

About his music: "a methodical landscape constructed via fieldrecordings
(no input mixer), composed elements and a consequent forms of creating
noise walls with different inner structured fine tones. An own language of
dark and beautiful noise combined also with light and flickering sounds..
the image of constructing a bath of tones/noise to jump in and enjoy, to
find rest in noise."

:::: BENJAMIN L. AMAN | http://www.benjaminlaurentaman.com ::::

 A french sound & visual artist born in Rouen. Through different medias :
drawings, installations, recordings, writings, actions, Aman's work finds
its place in between different levels of perception, combining a physical,
a mental and an emotional approach. As a sound performer Aman uses analog
electronics, tape works, lights, space, actions, and static compositions,
considering the live situation as a blank sheet of paper.

For Ohrengala, Aman will show a new piece called AG 30-320, a work
exploring space by using action and confrontation as a princip of
resistance. AG 30-320 intends to define limits between different states of
consciousness and psychogeographical disorders, using sound as a princip of
