Rehab Hazgui (b.Tunisian) is a trandisciplinary designer, composer and improviser of electronic music. Using the analog synthesizer and handmade audio devices, she explores the endless movement of sound, repetition and the use of silence as a third space on the boundary to navigate between different forms of listening. Through immersive live improvisation, Rehab interacts with her synthesizers, guiding their development and growth into pieces that unfold in the present moment. Much of her work is informed by her deep adoration for sound, and her grounded relationship with the analog synthesizer, a tool she has applied herself to not only as a composer and player but also as a designer and builder. Rehab Hazgui's residency is kindly made possible byMophradat.

He is working on creating an ideal structure as a sound, exploring various works and techniques between macro and micro, changing present and past.

Hyewon Choi has been a percussionist in the most active Korean classical music groups such as ‘Kinetic Korean classical music group YIEN’, ‘Korean musical group Taru’, ‘Jeong Ga Ak Hoe’, and ‘Kwon Song Hee Pansori epic chant Lab’ for the past 10 years.

Although she started as a traditional musician and has been active in Korean classical music groups, she has continuously tried to find a meeting point between traditional-, modern-, electronic- and world music.

More than just being a performer playing Korean traditional and Western percussion instruments and various special instruments, she is driven to learn about the techniques and methodology of electronic music and sound programming. This wide interest also made her a DJ and sound designer.

Lately, she has been successfuly expanding her musical career as a music director in various dance and theater pieces, making use of her sound range from traditional to electronic.

She has now become a multi-producer working with sound designing, producing, composing, and arranging.

We welcome Francesco Torelli for a nine month internship @ EMS!

Francesco is a sound lover who graduated in electronic music at Conservatorio G.F. Ghedini Cuneo. His work is based on electroacoustic compositions, live performances and sound design for moving images (documentaries and movies).

In his music, he mostly uses digital and analog elaboration of recorded sounds, with the aim to give sound a meaning, paying attention to perception aspects. He is attracted by musique concrète and from the act of recording sounds, played or from the environment.

Francesco is still working to know his different faces of musical identity better. The work is never ending and lot of fun.

SØS Gunver Ryberg is a Danish artist, composer and acoustic fanatic who thrives in the uncompromising extremities of electronic music. A stuntwoman in a past life, she now wields an arsenal of insistent industrial rhythms, raw techno and expressive sound art that challenges your state of consciousness.

Ryberg’s work embodies her rich production history. Her 2016 debut AFTRYK, released on Contort Records, for which she processed her own field recordings made inside a mountain on Svalbard, is a meticulous exploration of textures and timbres that has an undeniable live quality. With a broad background in performance and production, her works encompasses multichannel installations, live concerts, performance art, video games, and much more. For video games, Ryberg has created music and sound design for two acclaimed indie productions: the multiple award-winning ‘INSIDE’, which she worked on with Martin Stig Andersen; and, as part of SGR^CAV, a collaboration with Cristian Vogel, for twin-stick shooter game ‘THOTH’.

Olli Aarni (born 1988) is an experimental musician working in Vantaa, Finland. His music reflects the weather conditions and creates artificial views of the nature.

Aarni's sounds are based on dense timbres and static harmony, and the soundscapes yield rhythmic repetition and create worlds to get lost in: like reality condensed into magic or a hidden valley between new age and noise. 

Aarni's discography spans over 20 tapes, vinyls and CDs released on four continents, and he has performed in Japan, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, Estonia, Russia and Finland.
