Luke Munn is a Berlin based artist with a sound and socially focused practice. His work centres around re-activating, and re-presenting sound as itself: site-specific performances and projects that often use the architecture of a space, objects from the audience, field recordings of the area, or historically or socially derived audio. His work has featured in the Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona, Q-O2 Brussels, Laborsonor Berlin, and others – with performances in Paris, Dublin, Chicago, Berlin, Auckland, and New York.

Miguel Negrão is a sound artist born in 1981 in Lisbon, Portugal. Under the alias ZLB he has been active with Drone and Ambient music projects, having released one album “I Was Vaguely Aware of Something” on Friendly Virus, an independent record label and collective of which he is part and helped create. He has performed or presented pieces for the Wave Field System of the Game of Life foundation, Acousmonium sound diffusion system of the Groupe de Recherches Musicales and for the SoundWalk installation of Miso Music Portugal. He has played in Lisbon, Porto (PT), Den Haag, Utrech, Leiden (NL) and Vigo, A Corunã, Ferrol (ES). With a Bachelor Degree in Applied Mathematics, he has recently finished a Masters at the Sonology Institute in the Den Haag Conservatory on the topic of Strategies in diffuse spatialization, specifically, using the 192 speaker Wave Field Synthesis system of the Game of Life Foundation.

Steindór Kristinsson (a member of the Icelandic electronic duo Einóma) is an electronic sound artist currently situated in Den haag. He has (for the last 6 years) been studying at the Institute of Sonology and performing electronic music in various projects: around Den Haag and other Europien cities. At this point Steindór’s performance focuses on a fusion and interaction between experimental electronic sounds and rhythms.



Insects eyes by DuChamp

We love insects for many reasons. Few that comes up in my mind, one the way Burroughs keep repeating “insect eyes” in “Naked Lunch”, two because they are aesthetically beautiful, and three for this amazing sci-fi novel, called “Consider her ways” by John Wyndham , one of the most intelligent vision on gender fight. It exist also a very nice episode from the series Alfred Hitchcock hour, inspired by that novel.

On fri Mar 4th there will be the launch of this very interesting insect-related book:
