Agnes Hvizdalek

Agnes Hvizdalek originates from Vienna’s experimental music scene and has been based in Oslo since 2008. From an early age, she has dedicated her life to new music and her fascination with the human voice. She celebrates this in her abstract vocal music, for which she has received international acclaim.

Always exploring new horizons, Hvizdalek has engaged in numerous cross-disciplinary collaborations merging voice and visual and performance art, dance, theatre, film and writing. Her musical collaborations range from underground noise music and Jazz to classical contemporary music and experimental electronic and pop music.

Daichi Yoshikawa / Jean-Luc Guionnet

Daichi Yoshikawa is an improvising musician from Japan who has spent considerable time in London and Berlin working with a self-devised feedback setup of portable speakers and contact microphones that generates a constant vibration which he controls with resonate objects. He is also a member of lll人 (with Seymour Wright and Paul Abbott) and Nakasanye/наказание (with Antonin Gerbal and Joel Grip)

Jean-Luc Guionnet‘s practice is subdivided into as many parts as occasions arise for him to think and act in sound and image. A Parisian artist active in several fields (music, visual arts, cinema), he has worked mostly in electro-acoustics but also has a career in free improvisation and field recording, playing alto saxophone, soprano saxophone, church organ, and electric organs. He studied musique concrète under Iannis Xenakis and tends to extract the tiniest details from sound, appreciating slowness and the obsessive exploration of simple processes. Music, for him, is a way to test reality.

The duos first record 'Intervivos' will be released by Empty Editions.

Tyshawn Sorey Trio

Composer/drummer Tyshawn Sorey is widely considered to be among the most important young artists at the intersection between composed and improvised music. The Wall Street Journal has called him “a composer of radical and seemingly boundless ideas” and Stereogum called his latest release, The Inner Spectrum of Variables “a genuine masterwork, something entirely new.” He is one of the most in-demand drummers on the modern jazz scene -- known for his impossibly virtuosic technique and his mind-boggling ability to effortlessly master even the most difficult written scores -- but is also one of a rare breed of jazz musicians who is pursuing composition as seriously as their playing. He received his Doctorate in Musical Arts in Composition from Columbia University in May, 2017 and has recently been appointed as professor at Wesleyan University.
