Works by Rudi Punzo, Yannick Franck and Sandeep Bhagwati
Sandeep Bhagwati is a composer, researcher, poet, theatre maker, installation artist and conductor. In his work, he likes to ask himself questions that he cannot answer, and set himself tasks that stymie him. To further foster his ignorance, he founded a research-creation lab, the matralab, where he and his team work on computer-improvisation, interactive scores, bodysuit scores and new inter-traditional music and theater forms, but also on comprovisational technique, inter-x aesthetics and world-conscious practices e.g political or environmental sound art.
Yannick Franck is Belgium based sound artist, performer and curator. He is the Artistic Director of the art center Les Brasseurs in Liège, Belgium and owns the record label Idiosyncratics. Additionally he is part of the industrial-noise duo Orphan Swords and Founder of electroacoustic improvisation combo Y.E.R.M.O., which, among others, provided the sound for Pavilion of Luxembourg at the Venice Biennial in 2009.
Rudi Punzo creates artworks that combine sculpture, sound, video projections and performance into multi-sensory experiences. Animating recycled and discarded materials with renewable energy sources – most notably, solar energy - the sculptural elements in his works are transformed through his interactions with them, their own kinetic movements and the amplification and sampling of the sounds these elements create.
