Gareth Davis – is an artist, composer and musician living in Amsterdam. He plays (mostly) bass clarinet, the result of a somewhat impulsive purchase whilst window shopping in Covent Garden, London, around ten years before the turn of the century. The serendipitous location of a rather wonderful (and equally important, rather cheap) second hand record shop less than 10m from the bus stop required for seven years of schooling, combined with delivering newspapers on a daily basis, lead to a somewhat eclectic, dusty and generally unclassified taste in music. Regular (ie too much) coffee, in particular ristretto, consumption has resulted in a high tolerance to caffeine but low tolerance espresso that is not espresso. So it goes.
Dario Calderone – has been an advocate of new music for more than 20 years, having performed hundreds of new compositions for solo instrument, chamber music and ensemble in the major festivals of the world. His most interesting solo projects involve a rendering of the famous Voyage that never ends of Stefano Scodanibbio, a strict collaboration with Giorgio Netti on UR, 2 rites for solo double bass, and a specific research in micro-amplification for the live realization of his own compositions for double bass. He quite likes to cook, and makes a particularly good torta di castagne.
Roland Dahinden – was born in Zug, Switzerland just a short walk from the lake and not much further from the mountains. He studied the trombone and composition at Musikhochschule Graz, at Scuola di Musica di Fiesole Florence ( with Vinko Globokar), at Weseyan University Connecticut (with Alvin Lucier and Anthony Braxton, M.A.) and at Birmingham University England (with Vic Hoyland, PhD). As a trombonist he specializes in the performance of contemporary music and improvisation/jazz. He has given concerts throughout Europe, America and Asia. He has worked with performers including Anthony Braxton, Miles Davis and Quincy Jones and composers such as Peter Ablinger, John Cage, Alvin Lucier and Christian Wolff. He also plays the alphorn, which always needs an extra seat when travelling and prefers the window.
Tomas Järmyr – lives in Trondheim, Norway, 560km south of the Arctic Circle. Since 2017 he has been a member of Motorpsycho, an internationally acclaimed, award winning band that has been since 1989, and still is, a driving force in Norwegian and European alternative rock music. Before Motorpsycho he was drummer for the Italian jazz/metal band Zu. With one foot in rock/metal and the other in jazz/improv, Järmyr’s drumming combines wild creativity with extreme energy and presence. He has a plethora of projects that defy categorising; but operate within a vast range of genres from free jazz through death metal and progressive metal, to hardcore and electronica.
Barbora Jágrová – actually found her way to the light and work with it by accident: at JAMU, where she commenced her sound engineer studies. However, already in the first year, she started an internship as a lighting engineer at Divadlo Husa and never returned to work with sound. After graduating with a bachelor’s degree, she began studying lighting design in the studio of Pavla Beranová and Vladimír Burian, thanks to which she had the opportunity to participate in projects and learn from many personalities of contemporary art from the Czech Republic and abroad. Barbora currently works primarily in the Czech Republic, where she focuses on both the commercial scene (primarily concert and festival lighting) and independent art. She mostly collaborates on lighting design for performances, classical dance and opera.
Vinny Jones – is a scenographer who uses light as her primary material to shape the experience of space. Her practice is a hybrid one that brings together work as a researcher, a light designer, and maker of immersive sensory installations. Her current practise of Sensory Scenography evolved from research exploring light as a sensory medium that is experienced by the body as well as seen with the eyes. Rather than using light to describe or illustrate a situation, she seeks to create the experience of that situation. Her work bases itself on the recognition that it is through the whole sensing body that we perceive, experience and are connected to the world, and aims to create space for attention and reconnecting to the profound, embodied understanding employed in sensory perception.
Agathe Max – is a French musician and occasional jeweller based in London. Mostly she plays violin combined, enhanced and generally messed around with electronics and analogue stomp boxes. Her collaborators have included Rhys Chatham, Carla Bozulich, Tony Conrad, Alexander Tucker, Lucio Capece, Farewell Poetry and Animal Hospital while she has also worked in dance projects including the Carolyn Carlson Company and Joha Marsalo along with making music for film, theatre and installations.
Robin Rimbaud | Scanner – is an artist traversing the experimental terrain between sound and space connecting a bewilderingly diverse array of genres. He borrowed his stage name from the device he used in his early recordings, picking up indeterminate radio and mobile phone signals in the airwaves and using them as an instrument in his compositions concerts, installations and recordings. Committed to working with cutting edge practitioners he collaborated with Bryan Ferry, Wayne MacGregor, The Royal Ballet, Merce Cunningham, Mike Kelley, Torres, Michael Nyman, Steve McQueen, Laurie Anderson, and Hussein Chalayan, amongst many others.
Markéta Schaffartzik – is a student of the University of Ostrava (CZ) and also studies at the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice (PL). She also works as a voice therapist in the phoniatric outpatient department of the University Hospital Ostrava, where she is involved in research activities in the field of vocology, glotography and voice acoustics. In her interpretive activities she focuses on baroque and contemporary music. She regularly performs at festivals such as Ostrava Days, NODO (New Opera Days Ostrava), Hudební současnost and others. She cooperates externally with the National Moravian-Silesian Theatre and the Silesian Theatre in Opava. Since September 2019 he has also been teaching at the Department of Music Education at the University of Ostrava as part of his doctoral studies.
