Ora Clementi

Ora Clementi is the duo of Canadian sound artist crys cole and Australian composer-performer James Rushfordcole is known for her solo work in live performance and sound installations as well as innumerable improvised collaborations with artists that includes Oren Ambarchi, Keith Rowe, Tim Olive,Tetuzi Akiyama, Lance Austin Olsen, Jamie Drouin and Mathieu RuhlmannRushford has an established career as a composer of contemporary classical music, as well as various projects with Joe Talia, Oren Ambarchi, Klaus Lang, Jon Rose, Michael Pisaro, Graham Lambkin and Iancu Dumitrescu.

Ora Clementi is a unique investigation of liminal performance states in an interpersonal context, often focusing on text and speech as preconscious thought processes. Central to cole and Rushford's 
duo are questions surrounding interpretation, the function of memory, semiotics, and the syntactical discipline of sound within both listener and performer. Utilizing various musical approaches in unorthodox and disorienting ways, their work often incorporates organ/piano, field recordings, electronics, contact mics, flutes, ocarinas and percussive tools. Using movement and both amplified and acoustic sound, they play with sonic perception and seek to create a dreamlike context hovering between musical moments and pure abstraction.

Lisa Truttmann and Guido Spannocchi - Elsewhere Lands

Elsewhere Lands is a multi-layered media project about theme parks and their audio-visual abstractions. On a road trip in 2013 Lisa Truttmann and Guido Spannocchi researched and visited many parks, interviewed workers and visitors, took notes and thought about the places, their (hi)stories, tales, myths, memories and futures, accumulating a collection of audio-visual material. What was planned as a film project turned into a far more abstracted media art installation with documentary and essayistic elements. In August 2014 Truttmann and Spannocchi converted an old granary in Austria into an exhibition space to present 13 photo collages, a media installation, and a video projection of the interviews. The wulf. has now given the artists the opportunity present their project, give insight into their audio-visual archive, and screen excerpts of the interviews.

Doron Sadja and Byron Westbrook

Sadja will be presenting selections from "In Slow Motions", a new work for live electronics composed while in residence at EMS in Stockholm. Westbrook's performance will present new work that explores the construction of synthetic spaces built from documentation of choreographed listening activities and performed field recordings.

Doron Sadja is an American artist and composer whose work explores modes of perception and the experience of sound, light, and space.  Working primarily with multichannel spatialized sound – combining pristine electronics with lush romantic synthesizers, dense noise, and computer-enhanced acoustic instruments, Sadja creates post-human, hyper-emotive sonic architecture.

Byron Westbrook is an artist and musician based in Brooklyn NY. He works with listening, space, perception and awareness, often pursuing routes with social engagement. His electronic sound interventions play with dynamics of perception of space, sometimes as multi-channel sound performances or as installation work using video or lighting. He has presented work at ICA London, Clocktower Gallery, ISSUE Project Room, Roulette, Diapason Gallery, Eyebeam (NYC), Human Resources (Los Angeles), The LAB (San Francisco), International House (Philadelphia), VIVO (Vancouver), Instants Chavirés (Paris), O’ (Milan) among others. He has an MFA from Bard College, where he studied with David Berhman, Marcus Schmickler, Laetitia Sonami and Marina Rosenfeld. He has also worked closely with Phill Niblock at Experimental Intermedia Foundation in NYC since 2005. He has been an artist in residence at Clocktower Gallery, Wassaic Project, Diapason Gallery and is a 2014 Civitella Ranieri Fellow. He has releases with Sedimental, Los Discos Enfantasmes, Three:Four Records and will have an LP release in Spring 2015 with Root Strata.
