The main focus of his current work is sinewaves, whose subtle and adducent sounds are used in a wide dynamic range. As a sound artist he searches to cross sound and light. Klaus Filip runs a software project called ppooll (formerly known as lloopp) that is a networking collection of a variety of modules. This freeware is widely used by improvising musicians all over the world. Teaching position at the university of applied arts, vienna. Steady dispute with the computer as a musical instrument.

"Dafne Vicente-Sandoval, born in Paris in 1979, is a bassoon player who explores sound through improvisation, contemporary music performance and sound installations. Her instrumental approach is centred on the fragility of sound and its emergence and development within a given space. In a concert situation she seeks to create a parodoxical presence of vulnerability and strength by testing the limits of control and instability. A key aspect in her work is the deconstruction of her instrument. She amplifies fragments through miniature microphones mounted inside the instrument. This exploded version of her sound sometimes meets more conventional bassoon playing to generate aural discontinuities between the exterior and the interior, the whole and the parts, wood and electricity - a "reverse-engineered emergence". Dafne Vicente-Sandoval currently lives in Paris and works mainly everywhere else. She favours long-term face-to-face collaborations within which her work keeps an integrity while engaging in a dialogue with that of others. Current projects with Klaus Filip, Bonnie Jones, Pascal Battus, Jakob Ullmann, Éliane Radigue and Klaus Lang. Her work has been presented at contemporary music festivals (Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, England; Blurred Edges, Hamburg; Visiones Sonoras, Mexico), festivals of improvised music (Konfrontationen, Austria; No Idea, Texas) and sound art fetsivals (Tsonami, Chile)."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"This duo started performing live in 2012 by giving concerts in Austria, Germany and France.Vicente-Sandoval's bassoon approach fits in pretty well with Filip's work on sinewaves. The deconstructed usage of her instrument is a central aspect of her practice. She also amplifies its sections through miniature microphones distributed within the instrument. Focusing on the fragility of sound and its emergence within a given space, she considers music more as the punctuating of a preexisting sonorous environment, rather than an out of context, autonomous discourse. Silence and barely perceptible sounds (as well as their amplification) are central to her work.The main focus of Filip's work is sinewaves, whose subtle sounds are used in a wide dynamic range. While he used to play on the edge of a computers abilities in the past years, he is now reducing the processes to mere sinus-waves, overlapping with themselves and the ever sounding surroundment of a place; searching for the individual limits of perception, in loudness and movement. In this recording, both musicians achieve an evocative playing, oscillating between approach and remoteness."-Potlatch
