JD Zazie & Billy Roisz
The duo Billy Roisz & JD Zazie was started in 2014 thanx to the great festival “Depopulate #04” that took place at NK in Berlin.
Having a different background, both artists developed in the years personal ways to express themselves in the field of noise music.
Billy Roisz works mostly in the field of audio-video focussing on the links and gaps between visual and auditive perception, she questions the interaction between sound and image, the interchangeability or unity of the electromagnetic signal in the generating machines which creates image or sound. JD Zazie has explored over the years different approaches of real-time manipulation on fixed recorded sound; in her work she redefines DJ and electroacoustic activities and moves in an area which is constantly stretching the borders of what is supposed to be DJ mixing, free improvisation and composed music.
Listening to the duo Billy Roisz & JD Zazie makes it possible to dive into an unexpected mixture of soft and harsh noise, something between caress and ear spanking that matches perfectly together.
Angelica Castello and Urkuma (Stefano de Santis) / recorders, electronics, trash, mixing desks, noise.
Sonic alchemists, Angelica Castello and Urkuma, are archaic melodies that dance with the erratic pulses of electricity, leaving a trail of sweet noise and trash, echoing through the surreal landscape of their shared musical chaos.
Composer, Sound Artist
Using field recordings, radio and cassette devices together with the extravagant sounds of the paetzold recorder, composer and sound artist Angelica Castelló journeys through the enigmatic land of lost memories, death and traumatic encounters, fragility, dreamworld and the subconscious. Born in Mexico City, Castelló studied classical recorder and composition in Mexico, Canada, Holland and Austria where she currently lives and works.
She Performs continuously solo or in cooperations everywhere between Mexico City and Vienna. Numerous compositions for orchestra, ensembles, fixed media, radio works as well as installations that operate at the interface of music, performance and visual arts. Several releases on labels like Interstellar records, Mikroton recordings, Monotype records, Mosz a.o. http://castello.klingt.org
Stefano “Urkuma” De Santis, born in the South-east part of Italy, began his artistic career as a playwright, and later developed a musical approach to translate his theatre concepts into sound. The word Urkuma is specific to the FinisTerrae part of Italy and expresses a state of mind, that is possible to compare with the opposite to the Buddhist concept of nirvana.
Proceeding from free improvisation and noise, the music pairs together harshness and delicateness to piece together carefully spatialized sonic mosaics. Murmured drones, liquid growls, electrical discharges and acoustic touches: dissembling pieces are assembled into a unified whole.
He did releases, performances, symposiums and installations in Italy, Poland, Usa, Austria,UK, Spain, Portugal, Swiss, Slovack Rep., Japan and has collaborated with a wide range of musicians and sound composers.
