  Agnes Szelag  experiments and designs in the convergent space between composition and improvisation, video and performance, the material and immaterial, producing electro-acoustic works, installations, and textural video pieces. As a composer, Agnes writes for her own performances and releases as well as many collaborations. She performs using cello, voice, and electronics--often incorporating visual media into her solo performances. As an installation artist, Agnes prefers to work with specific, forgotten sites, but has also transformed gallery spaces, buildings, and objects. Her work has been shown at Grace Cathedral, Bunkier Sztuki (Krakow), THE LAB SF, de Young Museum, Project Artaud, Artists Television Access, CCA, The Stone NY, Monkeytown, Streaming Festival, Cologne Online Festival and many more. Currently, Agnes is a Creative Director at UC Berkeley managing a media and design team.

 Noise music of Japanese poetry.   IMA  is the duo of Nava Dunkelman x Amma Ateria, marching forth with fearless percussion, stark electronics, and filmic poetic vocals. Deconstructing and dissolving heavy music through restraint and release, IMA strives for a balance between meticulousl detailed precision of instrumentation, and chaos of densities driven to brinks of breakage, situated by beautification in between. IMA has been presented at residency at The Stone, New York City (2016) and San Francisco Electronic Music Festival, San Francisco (2016).  Amma Ateria (HK) is a sound artist, electroacoustic composer, and improviser born in Hong Kong, based in California. Her practice in sound examines the boundaries of the sonic spectrum and the physicality in the human experience. Her work has been presented in SoART, Austria (2013), Titanik Gallery, Finland (2014), The Stone, New York (2016), SFEMF, San Francisco (2016), BAMPFA, Berkeley (2017), Exploratorium, San Francisco (2018), and Marfa Sounding, Marfa (2018).  Nava Dunkelman (JP) is a percussionist and improviser born in Tokyo, Her sonic palette spans the globe from Japanese taiko to Indonesian gamelan, from classical to contemporary to the avant¬ garde. She has performed and collaborated with William Winant, Fred Frith, John Zorn, Ikue Mori, George Lewis and many others as well as performed classical and contemporary pieces with the William Winant Percussion Group, Joan Jeanrenaud, San Francisco Girls Chorus, San Francisco Contemporary Music Players and others.

  Ernst Karel (b. 1970, Palo Alto) works with sound, including electroacoustic music and experimental nonfiction sound for multichannel installation and performance. His recent solo 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 include Sonic Acts, Amsterdam; Oboro, Montreal; EMPAC, Troy NY; Arsenal, Berlin; and the 2014 Whitney Biennial. Sound installations in collaboration with Helen Mirra have been exhibited at the Gardner Museum, Boston; 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). CDs of his often collaborative work have been released on and/OAR, Another Timbre, Cathnor, Gruenrekorder, Locust, Sedimental, and Sshpuma record labels, among others.   http://ek.klingt.org
