Thanos Chrysakis

Thanos Chrysakis' output consists of composition, performance, and installation. He was born in Athens in 1971, residing for the last ten years in the UK. His work has appeared on various independent labels, and events in various countries. He composes for electronics, acoustic instruments and environmental sounds, focusing on the structural and aesthetic capacity of sonic matter. His work "Inscape 5" was amongst the selected works at the International Competition de Musique et d'Art Sonore Electroacoustiques de Bourges 2005, in the category œuvre d'art sonore électroacoustique, while "Nekyomanteion" received an honorary mention at the 7th International Electroacoustic Competition Musica Viva in Lisbon. Recent compositions include: A Scar In The Air (Aural Terrains 2008), "Threadshelters" for prepared piano + harpsichord (for Kate Ryder and Jane Chapman, 2007), and "Passage Dangereux" for prepared and toy piano, soundscape + video (for Kate Ryder, 2008). In addition to his compositional activities he has recorded/performed with Dario Bernal-Villegas, Wade Matthews, Oli Mayne, James O'Sullivan, Jerry Wigens among others.

Wade Matthews

Advanced academic studies in composition helped French-born American musician Wade Matthews realize he was not interested in telling other people what or how to play. In 1989, he moved from New York to Madrid and became part of the international improv community. Drawing on his knowledge of electronic music, he approached the bass clarinet and alto flute as "acoustic synthesizers," rethinking their sonic possibilities, phrasing, and relation to breath in a musical language based on real-time creation. When faster processors made laptop synthesis viable, Matthews returned to his first love, tweaking a virtual synthesizer to allow very rapid control of sound parameters for solo playing and dialog with others. In 2007, he founded INTERMEDIA 28 with photographer Adam Lubroth and guitarist Julio Camarena << www.myspace.com/intermedia28 >>. There, he began to combine field recordings with electronic synthesis in a 2-computer setup that has since become his main instrument.

Dario Bernal-Villegas

Darío Bernal-Villegas is a composer, improviser and drummer from Mexico City. Improvisation has been an essential part in his work as composer and performer. Many of his pieces deal with improvisation, as his aim is to create an intense, creative interaction between the performer and the score; in other words, creating the conditions for a more intense dialogue between the performer and the composer.As an improviser he has worked with musicians like Raúl Tudón, (Tambuco Percussion Group, México), Wade Matthews (USA, Spain) Thanos Chrysakis (Greece), Sebastian Lexer (Germany) Oli Mayne (UK), David Plans Casal (Spain) among others. Nowadays, he is working with the Mexican improvising collective Generación Espontánea and with the composer Tom Corona in his group "The Coming Burguers"-Aural Terrains
