“Totally immersive, spectral gamelan minimalism operating at the limits of perception. Imagine the intro to Photek’s Ni – Ten – Ichi – Ryu frozen and zoomed in x 100. We recommend you dive in deep…” — Boomkat on Ichinen(LINE, 2017)
Fabio Perletta’s research concerns matter and immateriality, and focuses on duality, revealing a network of hidden connections to transcend the limit of media. Investigating notions such as weight and lightness, visible and invisible, presence and intangibility, his work encourages different levels of experience, engagement and contemplation. Perletta’s practice reveals an inner discipline which goes beyond the scope of rational coordinates, whilst addressing reality and small things.
His work encompasses recorded compositions, performances, site-specific interventions and installations, appearing worldwide at festivals, art spaces and artistic residencies in Japan, Italy, Spain, UK, Germany, France, Colombia, Sweden, USA and Tunisia.His latest solo album ’Ichinen’ was released in 2017 by American LINE imprint. Recent works also include a collaborative album with German electronic music pioneer Asmus Tietchens titled ‘Deflections’ (aufabwegen) and the installation ‘In Between’ curated by Arnau Horta and exhibited at Arts Santa Mònica in Barcelona as part of Eufònic Urbà 2018.He runs his own 901 Editions.—
Lucia H Chung is a Taiwanese electronic sound artist based in London. She performs and releases music under the alias ‘en creux’ whose sound creation springs from her view on the medium of sound as preposition. Sound as preposition, expresses a relation between two elements. Without preposition, a clause will not form and a relation will not take place. Yet, at the same time, the role of preposition is also affected and determined by the two elements that it connects.
‘…similar to Ryoji Ikeda’s formidable, stonewall electronics: ruthlessly precise and undeniably physical. Cleansing blasts of sub and clipping static are oddly calming despite their force.’ – Stray Landings
Roberto Crippa is a London based sound artist, musician and designer. Blending elements of music concrète, electronic composition, noise and drone music, Crippa’s sonic practice functions as a self-contained universe that unnervingly transform the physical surroundings of the listener into visceral and immersive aural landscapes.Using an ever evolving array of custom analogue oscillators, samplers and electroacoustic instruments, Crippa’s performances both brutally and delicately sweep across the entire audible frequency range: from the lowest sub tones to the highest pitches, his work is rich in contrast as walls of sound awash with opaque noise and subterranean thrums collide with shimmering organic tones and sequenced sine wave constructions.
He released his debut album “Reverse” on We Can Elude Control, a label run by Emptyset’s Paul Purgas and audiovisual experiments on Wasted Capital Since 2013. He performed live at Leipzig’s Institut fuer Zukunf, Cave12, Pickle Factory, Bold Tendencies, audiovisual festival Flussi and famed experimental hub Cafe OTO among others. New studio work is scheduled to be released this year.
