LAWRENCE CASSERLEY (UK)
He (born Essex, England, 1941) has devoted his career since the late 1960s to the creation
and promotion of live performance electronic music. In 1967 he became one of the first students
of electronic music on the new course at the Royal College of Music, London, taught by Tristram Cary. Subsequently he became Cary’s assistant, and then Professor-in-Charge of Studios and Advisor for Electroacoustic Music at the RCM until his early retirement in 1995. Since then he has focused on live computer processing in improvised music, working with many of the leading improvisers, most especially Evan Parker and his Electracoustic Ensemble.
While his primary focus is on the real-time transformation of other musicians’ sounds, he also uses voice, percussion, home-made instruments and found objects as sources for his Signal Processing Instrument. His work is documented on more than twenty CDs, and he has performed and given workshops throughout Europe and in North and South America, Asia and Japan. Another important interest has been collaboration with different media, starting with his intermedia group ‘Hydra’ and work with sound poet Bob Cobbing in the 1970s, the Electroacoustic Cabaret in the 1980s and his continuing work with Colourscape,
including sound and light installations. He is a Director of Eye Music Trust, who present Colourscape Music Festivals and other projects in GB and other countries.
“Lawrence has also been doing all this wonderful work with Evan [Parker] as well, and I’ve been listening to it for a long time. One thing that’s important about this kind of work is that it doesn’t obscure who the individual is, like a lot of work around right now. Lawrence likes the idea of these virtual personalities that emerge and get placed in conflict and contestation. I think it’s very exciting.” George E Lewis - Interviewed in The Wire - Issue 288.
“ ...o certo é que Lawrence Casserley consegue ser mais inovador e criativo do que muitos dos chefes de fila da jovem geração de ‘laptopers’.” - “...the certainty is that Lawrence Casserley can be more innovative and creative than many of the ringleaders of the young generation of ‘laptoppers’.” Rui Eduardo Paes
“With Casserley’s arrival, the internal dynamics of the band changed completely. Lawrence redesigned the electronic rig for the Parker band, and on ‘Drawn Inward’, it was possible for any of the processing musicians - up to four of them at a given moment - to take sound from any other player at any time. The whole ‘machine of the group’, as Wachsmann called it, accelerated. Everything was more manoeuverable, and also more complicated. And no one was faster than Casserley, drumming on the pads of his Signal Processing Workstation like a scientific congalero, on his way to becoming a bona fide soloist inside the ensemble.”. Steve Lake discussing the Evan Parker Electro-Acoustic Ensemble
Equipment: Lawrence Casserley’s Signal Processing Instrument (SPI) is a continuing development since the mid 1990s. The original version was created in MaxFST on the IRCAM Signal Processing Workstation, and was completed during a residency at STEIM Amsterdam in 1997. A paper on the original version can be seen at http://www.lcasserley.co.uk // Two iPads running the TouchOSC App // A Novation “Launchpad” // A Keith MacMillen “SoftStep” Foot Controller

YIANNIS TSIRIKOGLOU (EL)
He is a composer / performer / sound artist born in 1981 in Larissa, Greece. In 2000 he moved to Thessaloniki (Greece) where he studied Civil Engineering. In 2009 he attended the Sonology course at the Royal Conservatory in Den Haag, Netherlands and he has recently finished the Sonology Master studies at the same school with teachers like Kees Tazelaar, Paul Berg,
Richard Barrett, Joel Ryan and Johan van Kreij, dealing with subjects including algorithmic synthesis, sound sculpting using mathematical models and spatial composition / synthesis techniques.
As a member of the Thessaloniki based trio Eventless Plot, he has released several tracks and
albums like the critically acclaimed Ikon cd on Granny records (2009) and the new album Recon
which is released from Thanos Chrysakis’ label Aural Terrains in July 2012. E. plot shared the
stage with artists like Giuseppe Ielasi, Angel, Vladislav Delay [Synch festival 2008, Knot gallery
2011 (Athens) and many more]. He is also participating in the digital sound duo Duel Protocol with Auris Bavarskis, making sound installations and performances using new technologies and unconventional ways (light feedback systems, typing processes) presented in venues and festivals like Worm(Rotterdam), FIBER Festival(Amsterdam) and Jauna Muzika Festival(Vilnius-Lithuania).
Yiannis is working also as a composer / sound designer on !lm, dance and art installations. In 2011 he made the soundtrack for the animation .::. .::. .::. [DUST], a collaboration with visual artist Mariska de Groot originally made for 360 panoramic cinema and 6 loudspeakers presented at Oddstream Festival 2011(Nijmegen,Netherlands), nominated for punto y raya festival (Reina Sofía ,Madrid) competition and presented in the international Fest of Contemporary animation & media-art LINOLEUM (Moscow). .::. .::. .::. [DUST] soundtrack was released from More Mars label in a special 3’’ cd edition. Recently he created music and sound for the dance piece Mirage with the choreographer Loreta Juodkaite for the Korzo theater in Den Haag.
Active in the free impro scene, he lately attended workshops by Peter Evans, Evan Parker and Sarah Nicolls between others, collaborated with many musicians and participated in the Sonology Electroacoustic Ensemble, organized by Richard Barrett. For his multichannel compositions as well as his live performances he is building his own Max/Msp programs where mathematical models (as trajectories) and trackpad information are used (together with special mapping systems) to control several sound parameters and spatial position of sounds at the same time. His goal is to create immersive new forms of sound with “natural” or complex development in time and space while preserving an intuitive real - time control.
Equipment: Mac book pro 13. A Korg Microcontrol 2. All the instruments are made by me in Max/Msp for control of sound parameters and spatial position of separate sounds. I build special mapping systems that translate information from the computer’s trackpad (several combination of fingers) to synthesis parameters in complex ways for a “tactile” intuitive control as well as I use several mathematical models to control sound and space. My sound interface is a M Audio Audiophile.

CHRISTOPHER HAWORTH (UK)
Christopher is a sound artist and writer from North-West England (UK). Much of his recent work focusing on the use of psychoacoustic phenomena as a compositional material. Works such as ‘Correlation Number One’ (2010) and ‘Vertizontal Hearing (Up & Down, I then II)’ (2012) are designed in such a way as to exaggerate aspects of everyday perception, encouraging ‘perceptual creativity’ and engaging voluntary and involuntary mechanisms of audition.
He also writes about music, emotion and subjectivity, the aesthetics of the present moment, and the mediumship of the listener in post-war experimental, electronic, popular music and sound art practices. His publications include: “Xenakisian Sound Synthesis: Its Aesthetics and Influence on ‘Computer Noise’” (in Resonances: Noise and Musics, Continuum Publishing House, 2013); “Ear as Instrument: Sound at the Limits of Audition” (in Leonardo Music Journal, Volume 22, 2013); “Composing with Absent Sound”, (in Proceedings of the ICMC, ICMA, 2011)

MICHAEL AMMANN (DE)

Acoustic Improviser >> Phonetik // UKO // Spatial // Filter
1998 Hochschule für Kunst und Design Hannover. Klangkunst bei Prof. Eller 1999-2004 Akademie der Bildenden Künste bei Prof. Hölzinger / Prof. Georg Winter. Kunst und Öffentlicher Raum. Seit 2002 Meisterschüler bei Ottmar Hörl.
“Ich begreife Improvisation als die Möglichkeit zum gegenwärtigen schöpferischen Akt und die zeitgleiche/zeitnahe Veräußerung und Rezeption meines situativen Selbst. Als Impulsquelle dient alles was situativ auf mich wirkt und was ich ‘im Jetzt’ in mir und im Außen erlebe. Ich kann es mir bewusst machen, es aufgreifen und treffe Entscheidungen der Veräußerung. Improvisation folgt meinem Bedürfnis nahe bei mir zu sein und ist konzentrierte Forschung im Augenblick.”
Ich benutze live 3 Settings, die ich je nach Umgebung (Solo, Zusammenspiel, Raum, Kontex) und Befindlichkeit einsetze.
1. Direkt Phonetik: Phonetische Improvisation nur mit Mikrofonen, Panning über rechts/links Mikrofonie, keine Filter.
2. Laptop Phonetik: Direkte Manipulation der phonetischen Signale mit virtuellen Filtern, Räumen, 4.0 Pannings. (Q4 Basic_Setting)
3. Filter Phonetik: Direkte Manipulation der phonetischen Signale mit Hilfe von diversen analogen Effekten.
