Eleanor Cully is an artist from Norwich (UK), currently based in Huddersfield. Her recent work as a composer has explored the interface between surface and skin in works written for
instrumentalists. Eleanor also performs her work, her latest flute work Siren Songs was written and performed with artist Charlotte Cullen at Charlotte’s exhibition Please, Be Gentle. Eleanor co-founded Bacon Jam Collective, an independent production collective for concerts in Huddersfield, and co-directs U N N A W A Y, an artist led organisation establishing a platform for reflexive artistic dialogue in Huddersfield.
Jorge Boehringer's solo project Core of the Coalman (US/CZ), is an open sketchbook, and a
collection of compositions in a state of evolution. This performance is a moment of frozen time, thawed live like a Tyrolean mummy, with the aim of hearing oneself hearing. http://www.jorgeboehringer.tumblr.com
Phill Niblock is a New York-based minimalist composer and multi-media musician and director of Experimental Intermedia, a foundation born in the flames of 1968's barricade-hopping. He has been a maverick presence on the fringes of the avant garde ever since. In the history books Niblock is the forgotten Minimalist. That's as maybe: no one ever said the history books were infallible anyway.
