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.
