The electro-acoustic duo Ercklentz Neumann (Sabine Ercklentz and Andrea Neumann) has since the late 90s researched the poetry in sound and noise. Experimental instrumental sounds in conjunction with analogue electronics meet everyday noises under the microscope in extreme electronic amplification. The momentum of sounds and machines is thereby consciously used to generate new structures.

We are happy to have Yan Jun at EMS for a couple of days in September! Yan is a musician born in Lanzhou in 1973, based in Beijing. He plays improvised music and makes field recordings. His works involve electronics, feedback, site-specific performance/installation, noise and organizing. His feedback improvisation set is always following the unstable relationship between microphones, speakers, the space and his own body movement.  Yan Yun orig3
