Kyoka – the first solo female artist on the raster-noton roster - works as a musician/composer in Berlin and Tokyo and is known for her chaotic and direct musical approach and a heavy-rough sound, resulting in a broken pop-beat with experimental yet danceable rhythms.

Jamie Drouin (Canadian, b.1970) explores the materiality of sensory perception. His minimalist works in audio, sculpture, and drawing use simple, yet formal systems of change within one or two elements to highlight a particular aspect of how the senses process shape and sound.  

During his residency at EMS, Drouin will be delving into the institute’s vintage Buchla 200 modular synthesizer to investigate the sounds which occur at the threshold of low analogue signal.
