| ENRIQUE MENDOZA:|
Enrique Mendoza from Mexico City is an electro-acoustic music artist, focused on live electronics. He has been developing his electro-acoustic composition and performance using DIY analog oscillators, lo-fi mini-synths, custom software, and production music technology; he also works closely with performers to break new ground and gain specific insights into the instruments and the performer’s personal expression.
In 2014 Mendoza released the CD “Below Sea Level”, edited by Future Music Records in London. His piece Cassiopeia for alto sax and live electronics was nominated as Best Instrumental Song at the Independent Music Awards in New York. He represented Mexico in the 51st International Rostrum of Composers held at Unesco in Paris. In 2012, he was selected by the Mexican Music Council to represent Mexico in the 59th TIC, organized by the International Music Council in Stockholm.
He has received commissions, awards, and grants from Institutions and Ensembles all around Europe, USA, and Mexico. Enrique has a Master’s degree from the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.
Matthias Kranebitter was born 1980 in Vienna, Austria. He studied electro-acoustic composition with Dieter Kaufmann and German Toro-Perez, film and media composition with Klaus-Peter Sattler and piano with Christiane Karajeva at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. He continued his studies with a postgraduate course at the Conservatory van Amsterdam as well as at the University of Graz with Alexander Stankovski and Beat Furrer.
His music is characterized by aspects of our media society, a dense accumulation and mash-up from everyday life’s sounds to a flittering-colourful and hyper-heterogenic sound flood, a comic-like, grotesque distortion of clichéd musical gestures with an ironic ambivalence, aiming for a culture-liberated Art brut in music.
His works received awards such as 1st Prize Gustav Mahler Composition Competition 2006, the 1st Prize Project Young Composers Gaudeamus Music Week Amsterdam 2009 or the Impuls Composition Competition Graz 2013, Publicity Prize of the SKE Austro Mechana 2013 and the Förderungspreis of the City of Vienna 2014. Collaborations with Ensemble such as Nadar Ensemble Belgium, Decoder Ensemble Hamburg, Klangforum Wien, Ensemble Phace, RSO Vienna, Ensemble Mosaik Berlin or Talea Ensemble New York.
For 2015 he was awarded a scholarship from the Junge Akademie and invited to Berlin by the Akademie der Künste.
He is founder of the ensemble Black Page Orchestra as well as one of the initiators of UNSAFE+SOUNDS FESTIVAL – antidisciplinary Festival / Media Arts Music in Vienna.
Clemens Hausch is a Vienna-based sound & media artist, graphic designer, curator and head of the Moozak label. In his work he challenges the notion of artificial space from the perspective of sound. His sound performances utilize realtime signal processing in order to create shifting tectonic structures that envelop and absorb the listeners and transform the spatial reality that surrounds them.
