ST/NE – aka Stavanger-born, Berlin-based vocalist Stine Janvin – works with experimental music, sound and audiovisual performance, with a special interest in the ambiguous and unrecognisable qualities of the voice. Her recent work is focussed on imitation, acoustics and the physicality of sound. Through a diversity of projects such as Fake Synthetic Music (PAN), the performative installation The Subjective Frequency Transducer, the live radio play In Labour (Pica Disk), alter ego ST/NE (Laura Lies In) and as the second half of field recording adaptations duo Native Instrument (Shelter Press), she explores and challenges the physical features of the voice, the acoustics of her external/internal surroundings, and new performance strategies.
rkss is an alias of Robin Buckley, a London based sound artist. They hold German and UK passports. Their releases on UIQ, Alien Jams, Where To Now? and more have explored the materiality of film sound, YouTube and EDM sample packs through the lens of house, ambient and computer music.
Buckley also runs a radio series for Resonance Extra called Lossless Communication, which explores sound discovery in the internet era. Other recent work includes a live improvised performance with Claire Tolan in Berlin, sound design for the art website www.clubdead.io and Brostep in the Style of Florian Hecker, a multi-channel composition available for download with limited edition lanyards and a game which offers a virtual environment for listening to the composition.
Joe Beedles is an audiovisual artist exploring ideas surrounding club music abstraction and the threshold between the real and the simulated. Joe’s current focus is on generative systems for live performance providing audiences with compelling, highly-detailed compositions, emphasising magnified yet obscured soundscapes. Stroboscopic lights, projected audio-reactive geometry and video footage of the surrounding environment is utilised against the audio component in a pseudo-synesthetic fashion resulting in a hugely engaging live show.
