About the Artists:

The SIGNAL QUINTET brings together five of Switzerland’s finest improvisers. Under the leadership of innovative American-born percussionist and composer, Jason Kahn, the quintet includes guitarist and electronic musician, Tomas Korber, cracked everyday electronics master Norbert Möslang, percussionist and electronic musician Günter Müller, and innovative contrabassist Christian Weber.

EKG is the duo of Kyle Bruckmann and Ernst Karel. Their music is situated between acoustic and electronic, improvised and premeditated, disruptive and meditative; it crackles and hums with precariously restrained potential energy. Combining traditional and extended wind techniques with anachronistic (non-digital) electronic processing, they carefully sculpt a bizarre yet organic soundworld of shifting tones, sudden and creeping textures, elusive suggestions of possible melody, and microscopic noise. For this performance, EKG will present a realization of Morton Feldman’s 1976 composition, Oboe and Orchestra, for oboe and analog electronics.
