Phill Niblock is an intermedia artist using music, film, photography, video and computers. He was born in Indiana in 1933. Since the mid-60’s he has been making music and intermedia performances which have been shown at numerous venues around the world. Since 1985, he has been the director of the Experimental Intermedia Foundation in New York – – where he has been an artist/member since 1968. He is the producer of Music and Intermedia presentations at EI since 1973 and the curator of EI’s XI Records label. Phill Niblock’s music is available on the XI, Moikai, Mode and Touch labels.

In 2014, he is the recipient of the John Cage Award from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts.

Barbara Held flautista y compositora, vive en Barcelona. Su práctica como músico con formación clásica da prioridad a toda una vida de colaboración, de trabajo interdisciplinario en relación con otros artistas. Ha creado un conjunto muy personal de nuevo repertorio para flauta por compositores españoles y estadounidenses, incluido el “Autorretrato” de Alvin Lucier para flauta y anemómetro de viento, y trabajos de cine y performance con Carles Santos y el poeta Joan Brossa. Sus composiciones colaborativas de video y música se han presentado en entornos muy diversos, desde el “Z to A Festival” organizado por el Storefront for Art and Architecture en las calles de New York hasta el Festival LOOP de videoarte en Barcelona. Conocida por su sutil exploración del material sonoro, crea un trabajo de sonido sensible y enfocado que expone el detalle del espacio físico de la escucha.

Katherine Liberovskaya is a Canadian intermedia artist based in New York City. Involved in experimental video since the 80’s, she has produced numerous single-channel video art pieces, video installations and video performances, as well as works in other media, that have shown around the world. Since 2001 her work predominantly focuses on the intersection of moving image with sound/music in various both ephemeral and fixed forms (projections, installations, performance), notably through collaborations with many composers and sound artists in improvised live video+sound concert situations where her live visuals seek to create improvisatory “music” for the eyes. In 2014 she completed a PhD in art practice entitled “Improvisatory Live Visuals: Playing Images Like a Musical Instrument” at the Universite du Quebec in Montreal (UQAM).
