Stine Janvin Joh – aka Stavanger-born, Berlin-based vocalist Stine Motland – 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 artist working with audio, video and lights. Primarily an electronic musician, Joe also creates gallery installations that often see him removing himself allowing autonomous systems to generate content from algorithms or pre-set rules; where audio elements trigger lighting and projections simultaneously.
Drawing from and abstracting elements associated with different electronic music subcultures: skewed modular dubs and electroacoustic computer music techniques are synchronised with rapid projections and strobe lighting in real-time.
Joe explores the threshold between the real and the simulated in a pseudo-synesthetic fashion; hyperreal CGI avatars and warped footage of the surrounding environment are coupled with uncannily synthesised acoustic spaces and real world recordings.
His work has been featured in both club and gallery contexts in Canada, China and across the UK. His hypnotic AV live show has been featured at Future Everything festival at The Whitworth, Manchester, No Bounds festival in Sheffield and Cafe OTO in London. Joe has held residencies at The Banff Centre, Canada (2016) and CFCCA’s AiR exchange to Chongqing, China (2017).
