Artist Biographies:

"Pauline Oliveros was a senior figure in contemporary American music. Her career spans fifty years of boundary dissolving music making. In the '50s she was part of a circle of iconoclastic composers, artists, poets gathered together in San Francisco. Recently awarded the John Cage award for 2012 from the Foundation of Contemporary Arts, Oliveros was Distinguished Research Professor of Music at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, and Darius Milhaud Artist-in-Residence at Mills College. Oliveros has been as interested in finding new sounds as in finding new uses for old ones --her primary instrument was the accordion, an unexpected visitor perhaps to musical cutting edge, but one which she approaches in much the same way that a Zen musician might approach the Japanese shakuhachi. Pauline Oliveros' life as a composer, performer and humanitarian was about opening her own and others' sensibilities to the universe and facets of sounds. Since the 1960's she has influenced American music profoundly through her work with improvisation, meditation, electronic music, myth and ritual. Pauline Oliveros was the founder of "Deep Listening," which comes from her childhood fascination with sounds and from her works in concert music with composition, improvisation and electro-acoustics. Pauline Oliveros describes Deep Listening as a way of listening in every possible way to everything possible to hear no matter what you are doing. Such intense listening includes the sounds of daily life, of nature, of one's own thoughts as well as musical sounds. Deep Listening was my life practice," she explains, simply. Oliveros was founder of Deep Listening Institute, formerly Pauline Oliveros Foundation, now the Center For Deep Listening at Rensselaer."

"Melaine Dalibert is a French pianist and composer born in 1979. After studying piano in Rennes and Paris conservatories (with Joël CAPBERT and Pierre REACH), he dedicates himself to contemporary art creation as a performer (première pieces from Gérard Pesson, Giuliano D'Angiolini, Tom Johnson, Ahmed Essyad among others) while initiating a persona composition work based on rigorous generative systems. Melaine shares preoccupations with visual artists such as François Morellet, Véra Molnar or Marcel Dinahet, whom he has collaborated with, and his music is deliberately emancipated from any narrative purpose in order to highlight combinatorial games vacillating between order and chaos. His creations have been radio transmitted (France Musique) and played in many French and foreign museums and contemporary art centers."

"The saxophonist, clarinettist and composer Julien Pontvianne feeds on many musical traditions - from the renaissance messes or the indonesian gamelan to the music of sonic youth, paul motian or morton feldman - to offer his vision. Here, no ignition, or rather a single and single, at the beginning of the sound, which runs the long lock of time to its silent end. Agglomerations of sounds, tempered or not, of the resonant, of the continuous, sometimes taking the shape of songs, silhouettes which cut far away on the horizon, and will approach to you, then disappear behind, outside your field of view. Songs related to silence. If music should tell stories, julien invites news, and if it should go somewhere, that it is going to its end and that we enjoy the trip first of all. We live fully in the time and the sound that is offered, miraculous assemblies of heights, of ketological rhythms, in a territory sometimes close to the concept of ecology of sound loved by gérard grisey or the ecology of listening to salvatore sciarror.

Within groups such as the watt clarinet quartet, aum grand ensemble, kepler or abhra, against the current, it offers a kind of hedonist ascesis, a shaking meditation. In addition to his explorations as a leader, julien is one of the founding members of the collective and label onze hours onze, one of the most active in the young french scene. He plays in bands ranging from the 20's swing to experimental rock and the most contemporary repertoire. Winning many prizes and played among others in new-york, new-orleans, los angeles, montreal, china, japan, winning many prizes, in india, colombia and throughout europe."

"After its reading of Julius Eastman's Feminine, released in 2021 the Ensemble 0 revisit the repertoires of Pauline Oliveros and Gyorgy Ligeti from another angle. From the works of Oliveros, they exhumed a deeply meditative piece for accordion and voice, giving it a new life in the form of vaporous, cloud-riding chamber music. With Ligeti, the piano radicalism of the Musica Ricercata miniatures crop up again in a new and as yet unreleased orchestration."-Sub Rosa
