Stephen McEvoy (recording under the name tuuun) is an Irish artist working with sound. His work, which draws upon techno, noise and rave,
is a playful investigation of the potentialities of minimalism and improvisation. He is interested in the social possibilities that music offers, both
in dealing with traumatic past histories, and in presenting new Utopian ways forward.
During his time in Stockholm, he will be working at EMS periodically.
Marja Johansson is a Swedish-Finnish musician and composer based in Turku, Finland. Her main creative output is the solo moniker Tsembla.
Using electronics, modified samples of acoustic instrument,
non-instruments and environmental sounds, she makes music that rides on waves of warped melodies, abstract voices and mutating textures – rough edged compositions, rich in detail,
that come together into instrumental miniatures. She also composes music for dance performances and film.
An AIR-programme grant from Nordic Culture Point
has made it possible to invite Marja to work at EMS.
