Rishin Singh

Rishin Singh (b.1985, Kuala Lumpur) uses different media to create minimal, sensual and meditative work that invites the audience to concentrate on the simple rhythms of everyday life. He collaborates regularly with Johnny Chang, Konzert Minimal, Eva-Maria Houben and his ensemble 'songs' (lucio capece, rishin singh, derek shirley, stine sterne). He lives in Berlin.


Tim Parkinson

Tim Parkinson has consistently pursued an independent path, seeking to engage with whatever it means today to be a functioning composer in the world. His music is mostly written for a dedicated community of friends and musicians (amongst others Philip Thomas, Anton Lukoszevieze, Julia Eckhardt). He has organised many public concerts to promote the presence, wealth and variety of present day music exploration, one thread of which is the annual concert series, Music We'd Like to Hear co-curated with John Lely and Markus Trunk. As a soloist he has performed with Object Collection, Skögen, Apartment House, Set Ensemble, Incidental Music, Q-02, J.G. Thirlwell, Phill Niblock, Matteo Fargion, James Saunders, Lee Patterson, Angharad Davies, Rhodri Davies, Jürg Frey, Michael Pisaro, Michael Parsons, Gavin Bryars, Joshua Rifkin, and Christian Wolff, amongst others.

His music has been labelled as experimental, "reconstructing music from the ground up", and "sounding like nothing else", the work invariably returning to fundamental questions around the meaning of sound.

He currently holds a Creative Fellowship at the Samuel Beckett Research Centre, and 2019 sees the 8th production of the complete “Time With People” at the Kallio New Music Days, Helsinki, and two new album releases of recent music on all that dust and Slip.
