Ryoko Akama – Sound Artist
Ryoko Akama is a sound artist/composer/performer, who approaches minimalistic compositions that magnify silence, time and space and offer quiet temporal/spatial experiences. Her works examine delicate and fragile objects such as paper balloons and glass bottles, creating tiny occurrences that embody ‘almost nothing’ aesthetics. Her performance and installation works are comprised of automated mundane objects and simple electronics in order to produce spontaneous vibration activities. She runs melange edition label, amespace and co-edits mumei publishing.
Charlie Collins – Sound Artist
Charlie Collins is a creative percussionist, free polyrhythmic drummer, and sound artist, based in the UK. His work continues to explore the boundaries between pure sound and rhythm, frequently incorporating metal percussion and free improvisation. Early recordings for cult labels Industrial, Fetish, and Doublevision were soon followed by collaborations with many of the pioneers of free improvisation, while his interest in East Asian percussion and rhythm technique is displayed in current work with Ryoko Akama, komungo player Eun-Jung Kim, pianist Yoko Miura, Butoh dancer Tsukasa Kamidate, and visual artist Bongsu Park. He is one of a handful of musicians to have played both Derek Bailey’s Company Week and Top Of The Pops.
