The artists

Ana Dall’Ara-Majek is a composer, sound artist and researcher living in Montreal. Her works have been presented at various international festivals. She performs regularly with her groups Jane/KIN, ILEA and blablaTrains; and she has also collaborated on theatre, dance and film projects. Recently she released two albums: Air (Kohlenstoff records) and Nano-Cosmos (Empreintes DIGITALes).

These two pieces are part of the Nano-Cosmos cycle. It is a cycle of acousmatic works dedicated to insects, small arthropods and micro-organisms. Originally composed for domes (format Klangdom 16 tracks), the Nano-Cosmos was released in its disk version (stereo) in 2018 under the label empreintes DIGITALes.

Martin Rodriguez
Tune In / Tune Out

Using unconventional performance techniques, Martín Rodríguez explores resonance in combination with transducers and his electric guitar to expose the rhythms, harmonies, and melodies that are found in the cracks of the radio spectrum, creating emotive soundscapes which are living, listening, and engaging in the present.

Inspired by autobiographical experiences, his work seeks to explore a narrative through the juxtaposition of sound with physical objects to create meaningful statements that resonate around identity, race, diversity and exclusion. He has performed in Berlin, New York, Detroit, Boston, New Brunswick, Calgary, Toronto, Saskatoon, and Montreal.
