Attilio Novellino is an Italian sound artist born in 1983. By using analog and digital instruments, field recordings, harsh distortions, samples and white noise, he aims to build a psychoacoustic and chaotic dimension around the subtle perception of the “feel”, that has been called a "dronegaze". Over the last years, Novellino has released solo albums for Valeot (Au) and Small Doses (USA) and he has contributed to many compilation projects focused on drone and ambient music from a range of international labels, such as Basses Frequences (Fr), Consouling Sounds(Be), Futuresequence (USA). His new LP will be released by IDEA Records (USA) during 2016.
Attilio's residency is kindly supported by the Italian Culture Institute in Stockholm.

At EMS, supported by Polska Institutet and Help Musicians UK, Radek Rudnicki is going to work on the new Space F!ght album using both Buchla and Serge modular synthesisers with previously recorded live and studio material. Furthermore, he will investigate the use of data with modular analog synthesis.
Space F!ght is an audio and visual live experience that explores the interaction between 3D projection mapping and improvised music. Drawing upon influences from a wide range of music styles, Space F!ght blends saxophone (James Mainwaring), voice (Anna Edgington) trumpet (Matt Postle) percussion (Enrico Bertelli), guitar (Tom Adams) and electronic hardware (Radek Rudnicki) to create an unique and powerful sound, visualised through with custom made 3D projections (Jakub Hader).

crys cole is a Canadian sound artist working in composition, improvised performance and sound installation. By generating subtle and imperfect sounds through simple gestures, she creates textural works that continuously retune the ear, delicately seeking to both reveal, and obscure the intricacy of seemingly mundane sounds and sources.
Oren Ambarchi's works are hesitant and tense extended songforms located in the cracks between several schools: modern electronics and processing; laminal improvisation and minimalism; hushed, pensive songwriting; the deceptive simplicity and temporal suspensions of composers such as Morton Feldman and Alvin Lucier; and the physicality of rock music, slowed down and stripped back to its bare bones, abstracted and replaced with pure signal.
At EMS they will be working with Leif Elggren.
Seth Cluett is an artist whose work includes installation, concert music, photography, and critical writing. His research investigates auditory memory, architectural acoustics, and the history and documentation of sound in the arts.
