about the artists:
Carl Stone is one of the pioneers of live computer music, and has been hailed by the Village Voice as “the king of sampling” and “one of the best composers living in (the USA) today.” he has used computers in live performance since 1986. Stone was born in Los Angeles and now divides his time between Los Angeles and Japan. he studied composition at the California Institute of the Arts with Morton Subotnick and James Tenney and has composed electro-acoustic music almost exclusively since 1972. his works have been performed in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, South America and the Near East. in addition to his schedule of performance, composition and touring, he is on the faculty of the Department of Media Engineering at Chukyo University in Japan.
Lý Trang is an experimental pop/electronic composer and producer based in Hanoi, Vietnam. she has been producing music as a solo artist for 2 years. Trang creates sounds for her songs by synthesizer, guitar, lyre, vocal, objects and a few traditional instruments from different ethnic groups, especially đàn tính from her ethnicity Nùng. Trang’s work is full of sound exploration and singularity, rich in textures and progress, which opens a door to illusion of images and colors, originated from one imaginary visualization that she finds as a cultural substratum.
Scobi Wan, aka Alec Schachner, ongoing curator of this sound series, is a cross genre multi-instrumental musician and sound artist. recently he has been most interested in deep explorations of sonic textures and rhythms in analog&digital feedback, scrubbing, time-warps thru hybrid harsh-ambient noise improvisation. he has participated in various sound art & music collaborations in Vietnam & abroad, performing both solo and in ensemble. he is chief recording engineer of Ếch Ếch Recording Studio in Ha Noi.
