EWA JUSTKA is a polish elec­tro­nic acid-tech­noi­se artist, self taught instru­ments buil­der and elec­tro­nics tea­cher based in Lon­don. She is also inte­rested in the noti­on of mate­ria­li­ty of objec­ts, vibrant, onto­lo­gi­cal sys­tems (human bodies, elec­tro­nic cir­cuits, inte­gra­ted cir­cuits: varied ran­ge of micro and macro envi­ron­ments and rela­ti­ons bet­ween them) and an inves­ti­ga­ti­on of modes of qua­si-direct per­cep­ti­on through extre­me light and sound actions, elec­tro­nics, hard­ware hacking, brea­king, decon­struc­ting, wiring – or, to put it blunt­ly – desi­gning syn­ths and play­ing hard tech­no. EWA JUSTKA has per­for­med and led work­shops at fes­ti­vals and venues like Loop Fes­ti­val, Sonic Acts, Super­nor­mal Fes­ti­val, Club Trans­me­dia­le, STEIM, Colour out of Space, Unsound Fes­ti­val, Nor­berg Fes­ti­val, Insom­nia Fes­ti­al, Cafe Oto, and more.

For Linz-based artist YEN TZU CHANG art is a lan­guage for expres­si­on. Sin­ce 2011, she has been working in various fields and com­bi­ning them with art and tech­no­lo­gy, inclu­ding inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry art and expe­ri­men­tal per­for­man­ces based on sound instal­la­ti­ons. Her ear­ly works were audio-visu­al and instal­la­ti­ons mixed with video art. During this time, she gra­dual­ly got inte­rested in making instal­la­ti­ons, which com­bi­ne her expe­ri­ence on sta­ges. She began to deve­lop her own elec­tro­nic instru­ments. In her sound per­for­mance, she attempts to build the rela­ti­ons­hip bet­ween sound, instru­ment and one of her cha­rac­ters. The more expe­ri­ments for con­certs she con­duc­ts, the more pos­si­bi­li­ties for dif­fe­rent cha­rac­ters she can play on the sta­ge.
