== Andrew Raffo Dewar =====
Andrew Raffo Dewar, Ph.D. (b.1975 Rosario, Argentina) is a composer, soprano saxophonist, synthesist, and ethnomusicologist whose music spans the spectrum of through-composed chamber music, aleatoric and algorithmic composition, electroacoustic music, and open improvisation. He studied with experimentalist composer/performers Steve Lacy, Anthony Braxton, Alvin Lucier, and Bill Dixon, and has performed regularly in Braxton's ensembles since 2005.
Recent work includes original music for his ensembles in San Francisco, New York City, and Hamburg, analog cybernetic feedback-based electronic music for the Serge modular synthesizer, music for film, compositions incorporating ethnographic interviews, biofeedback, and installations and performances utilizing 3D spatial audio. He is also active as an ethnomusicologist, publishing ethnographic writing on 1960s-70s intermedia art in Argentina during a military dictatorship, 1960s electronic music collective the Sonic Arts Union, and philosophical issues of ontology in jazz performance and music technologies.
Recordings of Dewar as a composer and performer are available on over two dozen albums published in the United States and Europe.
Dewar has received grants and awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, Chamber Music America, NewMusicUSA, ASCAP, the Getty Foundation, Arts International, Meet The Composer, The San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Fulbright Scholars Program.
He is Professor of Interdisciplinary Arts in New College and the School of Music at the University of Alabama, USA, and served as the Winter 2022 Fulbright Canada Research Chair at York University in Toronto, Canada.
== Phillip Schulze =====
Phillip Schulze (Düsseldorf, Germany) is a composer, media artist and educator, who explores the disciplines of composition, sound art and performance, including multi-channel real-time computer processing, analog synthesiser systems, interactive sound environments and compositions for voice and instruments. Although his works are predominantly ephemeral, they closely resemble sculptural experiences in space.
With his recent composition series „Intermorphologies" which is based on self developed software, Schulze explores multi-dimensional sound mutations and musical causalities generated electronically in realtime.
Phillip Schulze studied and worked with a number of major figures in contemporary music such as Anthony Braxton, Ron Kuivila and Alvin Lucier. Prior to composition, he studied Media Art and Stage Design at the University of Arts and Design Karlsruhe, followed by a media-art research appointment in Singapore.
His work has been performed or installed in numerous sites in Europe, Asia, Australia and North America. Schulze received the Audi Art Award as well as an Honorary Mentioning in the field of Digital Musics & Sound at the Ars Electronica in Linz, Austria. In 2011 the University of Music Düsseldorf appointed him as Visiting Professor and Head of the Music Informatics Department at the Institute For Music And Media.
In 2021 he was commissioned to realise a composition for the thousand years anniversary of the St. Apostel Basilica Cologne. The work A Contemplation Towards Multitudes for vokal ensemble, organ and electronics was performed with video projections and 24 loudspeakers. Accompanying Schulzes electronics, the Fiat Ars ensemble and Brian Parks on the organ performed for 16 hours and 40 minutes without interruption.
== Hará Alonso =====
Hara Alonso (SE/ES) is a pianist and composer based in Stockholm. Her music blends electronic and instrumental elements generating complex and imaginative sonic universes. Her creative practice questions the hegemonic narratives around music and technologies by resignifing its tools and knowledge. By means of improvisation, somatics, physicality, DIY interfaces and coding, Hara composes new sonic systems and languages.
== Mattias Petersson =====
Mattias Petersson is a composer and performer based in Stockholm. He is part of the vibrant computer music scene with a personal take on live coding and modular synthesis. His music has been performed worldwide and released on labels like Moving Furniture Records, CODEPENDENT, IDEAL Recordings and Fylkingen records. Mattias holds a diploma in electroacoustic composition from the Royal College of Music. As a PhD candidate in composition at the Luleå University of Technology, he is part of the research cluster GEMM))), focusing on Gesture, Embodiment and Machines in Music.
== Marcus Wrangö =====
Composer and musician focusing on electroacoustic music both in studio based form and live electronics, and also audiovisual pieces, where the visuals are equally important as the sound and music. With his background in the IT business and electronic dance music his approach to music often springs from a technological stand point, often with abstract narratives and big contrasts between different sound worlds. He has worked with everything from complex surround techniques, advanced gestural controllers and programming to field recordings, home built electronics and visual projections. Several of Wrangö’s works includes questions about how we deal with technology in every day life as well as in the future – often in a science fiction setting. Wrangö runs the small label/publishing company Mörk Materia Förlag and T-Shirt shop Modulart. He work as Technical Manager, Composer and Tonmeister at Audiorama as well studio engineering and teaching electroacoustic music at Gotlands School for Composers in Visby.
