Kadet Kuhne is a visual and sound artist who generates synthetic stimuli as an investigation of subjectivity through systems of control and technological mediation. With a preoccupation of what constitutes consciousness, Kadet aims to prompt visceral, even pre-verbal emotional and physical responses to the invisible forces of particles and vibration that construct all matter. Taking form in video, installation, album releases, performance, interactivity, 3D printing and 2D print, Kadet’s works have been presented nationally and internationally at select venues such as the Museum of Art Lucerne, de Young Museum, Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles, Contemporary Art Center Villa Arson, Antimatter Film Festival, San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery, Krowswork, LACE Gallery, Crossroads Film Festival and Highways Performance Space and Gallery. Kadet received a Masters in Integrated Media and Music Composition in Experimental Practices from the California institute of the Arts in 2004. Based in Oakland, CA, Kadet has collaborated with Bay Area artists Mary Franck, Allison Leigh Holt, Suki O’Kane, Paul Clipson and Gregory Dawson, and has remotely developed projects with Alba G. Corral, mem1 and Krystof Pesek. She works as an Adjunct Professor in Media Arts alongside owning a post-production sound studio, Audible Shift, and is the President of San Francisco Cinematheque’s Board of Directors.
John Davis is a Northern California musician and filmmaker building on the relationship between moving image and sound through live performance and studio-based works. Encouraging sensory response through familiar and unexpected uses of traditional media, John employs chance and collaborative exchange as regular means for creative expression.
With collaboration and live performance work, John alternates as both musician and filmmaker. Improvisation generally defines these partnerships, giving priority to spontaneity over formal rehearsal. John's recent collaborators have included Lawrence Jordan, Craig Baldwin, Paul Clipson, Kerry Laitala, Mary Helena Clark, Joshua Churchill, Suki O'kane and Chris Duncan among others. Utilizing both original and found-footage, John's films and videos incorporate personal, nostalgic, cultural and ecstatic themes that foster unique single-channel artworks. His work has exhibited widely, most notably at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The San Francisco Cinematheque, The Berkeley Art Museum/Pacific Film Archive, The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, South By Southwest in Austin, The Antimatter Media Art Festival in Vancouver, Festival Images Contre Nature in France, The Optica Festival in Spain, Instants Vidéo Numériques et Poétiques in Marseilles, The Milan Film Festival, The Swedenborg Film Festival in London, The Alchemy Film And Moving Image Festival in Scotland, Transmediale in Berlin, Impakt in the Netherlands and Videoex in Zurich.
As a musician, John incorporates prepared instruments, phonography, magnetic tape manipulations, short-wave radio and electronic musical circuits as a means for encapsulating listeners within deeply crafted sonic environments. He has released music on the Root Strata, Digitalis, Students of Decay, Bimodal Press and Peasant Magik labels in the US. John also collaborates with Collin McKelvey as one half of the multimedia project IN/S. John has an MFA in photography from the San Francisco Art Institute and a Bachelor of Science in anthropology from Loyola University in Chicago.
Jeremiah Moore works with sound solo and with collaborators, across the disciplines of film, theater, radio, interactive work, mobile experiences, haptic augmentation, field recording, and site-specific installation. His solo work deals with interfaces between humans, nature, and technology, cultural observation, experiences of time, and transformation of commercial culture into meaningless bliss. His work blends field recording, processed materials, and synthetic sources.
Recent collaborative projects include a live mix of The Residents' seminal experimental album Eskimo on the 100+ speaker-channel Meyer Constellation system at The Exploratorium, a 5.1+video+haptic installation on Chinese shrimping history in the San Francisco Bay, and designing sound for short documentary film "Last Day of Freedom" which has won numerous festival awards. With colleagues momentaudio.com, he designed and implemented sound for artist Ai WeiWei's "@LARGE" exhibition on Alcatraz island.
He serves on the board of American Society for Acoustic Ecology, and co-chairs Bay Area Sound Ecology, which creates and curates real-world social experiences around listening. He is also a core-team member of The TANK, a fledgling place-based sonic arts center in Rangely, Colorado. He lives in San Francisco with his partner and two sons who, like him, never sleep.
Daniel Bloomquist's work is processed based, beginning with samples gathered and manipulated digitally, then dubbed down to analog tape; eroding away music, field recordings and other found media. Effectively reconstituting the quality and predictability of the digital source material. The combinations used in this approach examine the nature of the chosen media, how it is stored, distributed and ultimately how it evolves over time. One sound’s initial intention begets an all-together new purpose by setting points of failure and degradation. His final compositions are warm, textured environments.
Daniel lives and works in San Francisco, Ca. He received his MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. He has been a part of various bay area based experimental groups and collaborations for the last 16 years. His current work looks at processed media, the act of transformation, and nature of analog and digital technology.
