    La Manta (FR)

    Clara de Asis/ prepared guitar
    Golem Mecanique / Voice, drone box, alto violin

    The experimentation of drone landscape, infinite shapes and vanishing voice.

    Clara de Asís is an electroacoustic music composer and experimental guitarist, born
    in 1988 in Spain and based in France, where she’s fully involved in the experimental
    and contemporary music scene. Her musical practice is held away from any formal
    academicism, aiming to transcend conventional instrumental approaches. She works
    mainly on prepared electric guitar, focuses on exploring the specificities of her
    instrument, and develops them both in live situations and throughout electroacoustic
    compositional processes within sounds from several sources. She often builds her
    music from minimalist frameworks, which allows her to explore a certain idea or
    parameter to reach its full development.
    Her works have been promoted on many international platforms and scenes and she
    collaborates regularly with sound artists and contemporary musicians (among
    others: Noël Akchoté, Christophe Modica, Laura Vazquez, Jean-Marc Montera,
    D’Incise, Golem Mécanique, Emmanuel Lalande, Nicolas Dick).
    Golem Mecanique works with vocal experimentation. An experimentation forged by
    the first practice of writing and the sound accumulation , field recording , looking
    around the voice recorded on magnetic tape and processed by multiple ways.
    Her work is oriented through intimate and minimalist frame ,building a mystical
    world .
    Her recent works aims to reach a sound confusion between drone and voice through
    a musical polymorphism created by drones , drone box, vocals , sound manipulation
    of objects, lo-fi device looking for an organic radicality through an ecclectic and
    deep instrumentatium.
    She is an active member of Nantes-based experimental label Drone sweet Drone and
    she is part of duet Outrenoir (with Alexis Degrenier) ,experiemental band Quadrille
    abd recently formed duet Querelle with Alice Dourlen (Chicaloyoh) .

Over the course of the last decade, Baker has released numerous recorded works, both solo, with his duo Nadja, and various other group projects on such labels as Gizeh Recordings, Alien8 Recordings, Drone Records, and his own label, Broken Spine Productions. He is also the author of several books of poetry.
    Baker has collaborated in-studio and live with such artists as Tim Hecker, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, Peter Broderick, Carla Bozulich, Jessica Baillif, and members of The Jesus Lizard and Swans. He has also composed for and performed with such contemporary classical ensembles as The Penderecki Quartet and The Riga Sifonietta. Baker has toured extensively around the world, including appearances at such international festivals as FIMAV, SXSW, Incubate, Unsound, and Mutek, among others.

    N (DE)

    N arbeitet mit dem Moment, mit dem Eindruck des Ortes, mit dem, was die Inspiration bewirkt. Unabhängig vorhergehender Planungen und Überlegungen entsteht so eine Musik, die sehr persönlich, sehr „innen“ und sehr Ausdruck ist.
    N-Veröffentlichungen beziehen sich auf reale Orte, die sich im Namen der (durchnummerierten) Tonträger wieder finden.
    N arbeitet seit 1997, dem Gründungsjahr des seitdem existierenden Projekts [MULTER] (mit Mal Hoeschen und Thomas Geiter) auf dem Gebiet experimentelle Gitarrenmusik. Im Gegensatz zu der Arbeit mit [MULTER], die analoge und digitale Arbeit und Verarbeitung verbindet und seit der Gründung in bisher 14 Tonträgern veröffentlicht hat, vermeidet N alle Formen von cut + paste und veröffentlicht ausschließlich Aufnahmen, die vollständig live entstanden sind. Ziel ist es, die Frische und Tiefe der Musik einzufangen, wie sie nur im Moment der Inspiration entstehen kann.
    N verwendet dafür ein Gitarre-zwei-Verstärker-Setup mit einer Kette von Effektgeräten als verbindendes Element und lässt so eine Musik basiert auf warmer Tiefe entstehen; mal loopartig zurückhaltend und zerbrechlich, mal wie ein Unwetter die Hörer überrennend.
    Seit 2001 sind bisher 28 N Tonträger auf verschiedenen europäischen Labels erschienen, die meisten davon auf dem von N bevorzugten Tonträgerformat Vinyl mit einem konzeptuellen aufeinander aufbauenden Artwork, das die Stimmung des musikalischen Inhalts illustriert.
    Im Rahmen von Live Auftritten verwendet N ausschließlich das oben genannte Setup. Backingtapes, Rechner oder vorgefertigte Loops werden nicht benutzt.
