Patrick Chaney has been deconstructing the boundaries of techno under the alias SOLID STATE ENTITY since 2011. Tinkering with time signature and layered textural soundscape to manipulate time and space, the often rigid format of dance music gives way to cavernous voids and broken grids. Merging the mental and physical, spiritual and synthetic, his auditory meditations are equally suited for closed eyed inner space or the physicality of the dance floor.

A driven, electronic, colored landscape of quirky sounds and buzzing basses, synth leads and singing all wrapped into one world being carried by cutting edge beats and contrasted by colossal moments. Personal heroes include: Bjork; Prokofiev; Masashi Hamauzu; Emerson, Lake and Palmer; and Kraftwerk.

Ernst Karel makes electroacoustic music and experimental nonfiction sound works for multichannel installation and performance. His recent projects are edited/composed using unprocessed location recordings; in performance he sometimes combines these with analog electronics to create pieces which move between the abstract and the documentary. Recent sound projections have been presented at Oboro, Montreal; EMPAC, Troy NY; Arsenal, Berlin; and the 2014 Whitney Biennial. Sound installations in collaboration with Helen Mirra have been exhibited at Culturgest, Lisbon; KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; Audiorama, Stockholm; MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge; and in the 2012 Sao Paulo Bienal. Video with multichannel sound collaborations include Ah humanity! (2015, with Lucien Castaing-Taylor and Véréna Paravel) and Single Stream (2014, with Toby Lee and Pawel Wojtasik). Other projects include the long-running electroacoustic duo EKG, and the location recording/performance collective the New England Phonographers Union.

Composer Katarina Miljkovic investigates interaction between science, music and nature through collaborative musical performance. This interest led her to the mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot's essay The Fractal Geometry of Nature and self-similar complex structures resulting in the cycle, Forest, "a dreamy piece, along the lines of Feldman or Brown, entirely captivating" (Signal to Noise). Her generative music has been described as “a refined, hypnotic dream” (Danas), “a work of musical and visual slow-motion with only a few delicately elaborated musical metaphors" (Radio Belgrade), and "ambient tone poem that moved hypnotically through the sonic frame" (Lucid Culture).

Morgan Evans-Weiler is a Boston based sound artist, composer, performer, curator and educator whose work includes ensemble and solo compositions, improvisations, sound installations, drawings, concert curation, production and ensemble direction. Exploring the realms of contingency and environment, Evans-Weiler's works examine the process of change and the inherent creativity that exists as a precondition of our physical and temporal experience. He uses objects, psychoacoustic phenomena, stasis, stillness and our sense of place as compositional material to explore our environmental experience of space and time. His recent album Violin/Sine was called 'transfixing' by writer Steve Smith and included in the Boston Globe’s list of "Best Local Classical Albums of 2015."

This concert is part of Beyond These Things: A Series for Jed Speare
