Ulrich Krieger is well known as a saxophone player in contemporary composed and free improvised music as well as a composer of chamber music and electronic music. Since 2007 he is associate professor for the composition faculty at the California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles. He studied saxophone, composition and electronic music at the UdK Berlin (University of the Arts) and the Manhattan School of Music New York. He collaborates with: Lou Reed, LaMonte Young, Phill Niblock, Lee Ranaldo, Merzbow, Berliner Philharmoniker, zeitkratzer, just to name a few. His recent focus lies in the experimental fields and fringes of contemporary Pop culture: somewhere in the limbo between Noise and Heavy Metal, Ambient and Silence.
Kerstin Hovland is a video-artist with a background in computer engineering.
She is teaching programming, circuits and animation to artists, musicians and high school students through the CalArts Community Arts Partnership. She writes custom software, designs projection systems, creates algorithms for generative animations, composes music, and builds interfaces that coalesce into installations, performances, and games representing mathematical and scientific concepts as expressive forms. Hovland’s pieces stem from analysis of the way technology is used and viewed and how its presence impacts our daily lives.
