Ismail Negm's approach to composition and improvisation centres around three points: creating familiarity through coherence over repetition; capturing the listener with sound objects on the uncanny border between the natural and the synthetic; and insisting on narrative as the purpose of form. The instrument that best expresses his musical intention is the modular synthesizer. He is co-founder of EasternBloc's weekly modular synthesis performance series ModularMondays. He is particularly interested in audio spatialization (ambisonics, VBAP, wave-field synthesis). His academic background is in behavioral neuroscience and pure mathematics with a particular interest in logic, and is a programmer by profession.
Born in Chicoutimi (Canada), Philippe-Aubert Gauthier lives and works in Sherbrooke (Canada). He is a sound and digital artist, musician, junior mechanical engineer, M.Sc, Ph.D. in acoustics and researcher. The heart of his artist's statement is based on the interactions of arts, cultures, sciences, and technologies in an integrated research agenda. His work in sound art ranges from performances to installations where custom systems and sound in space are central. P.-A. Gauthier created more than 40 art pieces and published more than 50 scientific communications. He received grants from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, Canada Council for the Arts, Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada and Fond de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologie.
