About the artists:
JULIEN OTTAVI is one of the most adventurous and extreme members of a new generation of European sound artists. Ottavi studied sound and photography at the art school of Nantes. He is a founding member of Formanex, an electro-acoustic quartet performing graphic scores from the 20th and 21st centuries, including works by Cardew, Cage, Wolff, Feldman, Brown, and Ralf Wehowsky, as well as the founder of the Nantes-based experimental music organization Apo33 (responsible for running the label Fibrr among other activities). He has releases on Erstwhile, Erratum, Fibrr, Sigma Editions, and Sirr Records.
SETH CLUETT is a composer and visual artist whose work includes photography, drawing, video, sound installation, concert music, and performance. His pieces are an exploration of the role of sound in everyday life, engaging the boundary between the auditory and the other senses as an active field of experience for the audience. His work is documented on Errant Bodies Press, Sedimental, Crank Satori, BoxMedia, and Wavelet Records.
Formerly of Boston, MIKE BULLOCK is a composer and improviser based in Troy, NY. As a solist, in duo with cellist Vic Rawlings, and with electronic duo rise set twilight (with Linda Aubry), Mike has performed across the US and in France and the Czech Republic. He has collaborated with Bhob Rainey and Greg Kelley (of nmperign), Mazen Kerbaj, Christian Wolff, Lê Quan Ninh, Daniel Carter, and Theodore Bikel. His recordings appear on Grob, Intransitive, CIMP, Emanem, Kissy, Fargone, Rounder, Naxos, and his own Chloë imprint.
