Ute Kanngiesser has played cello since early childhood: church and chamber music, theatre and film music. Over the last 10 years, since moving from Berlin to London, she has played unscripted / improvised music almost exclusively, and developed a voice that has few direct / external references. Currently, she works most regularly with Seymour Wright and Paul Abbott and reads and writes for the IIInIII (nommit) language experiment.
Ken Ikeda is a video artist, improvising musician, and composer, born in Tokyo. He has worked with John Russell, Paul G. Smyth and many other improvising musicians, and has exhibited sound art and visual installations around the world. He has collaborated with, amongst others, painter Tadanoori Yokoo, artist Mariko Mori, Hiroshi Sugimoto, and composed and recorded for film maker David Lynch. He featured as part of Sonic Boom, at the Hayward Gallery, London in 2000 and as part of the Royal Academy’s ‘Apocalypse’ exhibition in 2001.
Daniel Kordik is a musician and performer, born in Slovakia and based in London.
Weaving a thread around electronic and improvised music, Kordik works mainly as an improviser, music collaborator, field recordist and a regular member of the duo Jamka. He plays regularly in an improvised duo with the trombonist Edward Lucas.
We welcome back sound artist Tom Wallace after a fascinating field recording presentation at the first Earshots event in 2013.: His work is primarily in the acousmatic & radio mediums. He will present rain forest recordings made during recent trips to the Far East. Working with the London Musician’s Collective Tom helped set up Resonance104.4FM the UK’s first radio art station in 2002. He has contributed various shows seeking to redefine radio and incorporate other wireless technologies with the radio show ‘London Wireless Soundscape Project.’
