A few words about a few artists:
Canadian-based musician and sound artist, born in Vancouver. Since 1996, he has produced a range of audio works for Kranky, Alien8, Mille Plateaux, Room40, Force Inc, Staalplaat, and Fat Cat. His works have been described as "structured ambient", "tectonic color plates" and "cathedral electronic music". More to the point, he has focused on exploring the intersection of noise, dissonance and melody, fostering an approach to songcraft which is both physical and emotive. The New York Times has described his work as "foreboding, abstract pieces in which static and sub-bass rumbles open up around slow moving notes and chords, like fissures in the earth waiting to swallow them whole". His Harmony in Ultraviolet received critical acclaim, including being recognized by Pitchfork as a top recording of 2006. Radio Amor was also recognized as a key recording of 2003 by Wire magazine. His work has also included commissions for contemporary dance, sound-art installations, as well as various writings
Multidisciplinary artist based in Sheffield (UK). Mark is at the forefront of modern computer sound. Working in the realm of minmal techno and installtion he has released critically music for flagship labels like Raser-Noton, Mille Plateaux, Line, and Editions Mego . Although working in electronic and techno music traditions, Mark's practice has become increasingly informed by non-European musics. This is evident in two recent linked works "Multistablity" and "UL8" which explore a number of unfamiliar timing and tuning systems. Uncut magazine called these "completely mind-blowing" and the Wire said these were "amazing". As well as recorded works Mark also produces installation pieces often using multispatial speaker technologies. Mark has performed at events around the world including Sonar, Mutek, Offf and many more. He is also a member of SND & Blir.
Known in the electronic music world for throwing many successful parties, playing adventurous DJ sets, launching an influential newsletter, and starting Beyond Booking, his own booking agency. Although Spinoza has been playing tons of techno and house lately, he loves all music, and has a past that cannot be pinned down to just one genre. He started DJing in 1996, playing psychedelic soundscapes in chillout rooms and on college radio shows (Carnegie Mellon, Rutgers, and New York University). Slowly but surely, he became more obsessed with all forms of dance music, and at this point plays dance music in New York City at least twice a month, mainly at his own Bunker parties. He also helped curate Bass Mutations for the Unsound Festival.
