Akiko Nakayama is a Japanese visual artist who works in the fields of installation, photography and performance with a special focus on the subject of “live painting”. In what is a cross between performance art and installation, Nakayama uses a multitude of kitchen basters loaded with paint and water to add, mix, tilt, blow and add all sorts of extraneous effects to her paints, recording and projecting it all onto a large screen. The result is a mesmerizing show of organic movements the resembles life itself viewed under a magnifying glass.
In recent years she’s also added sound as another dimension to her work, as has collaborated with different musicians in live performances.
Nakayama has performed and exhibited to great success in Europe and the Far East, participating in events like the Ars Electronica Festival in Austria, the TEDxHaneda in Japan , DLECTRICITY ART FESTIVAL in the USA, performing with the Boston Symphony Orchestra at KLASSIK Underground in Tokyo, winning numerous awards as well as working as a lecturer at Tokyo Zokei University.

uproot is an electroacoustic music group that is based in Berlin consisting of Ganesh Anandan on shruti stick and microtonal metallophones, Marcello Lussana on live electronics and Kriton Beyer on harmonium and objects. The trio works with the use of both the natural sounds of the acoustic instruments as well as with preparation of these instruments, the use of objects and extended techniques. The interplay of the two acoustic musicians is linked and fused with the use of live electronics, creating a sonic hall of mirrors where the beginning and the end of any sound merge and the sound source begins gradually to disappear. Faint harmonic shapes shine through dense clusters of sound, complex rhythms are subtly woven into organic soundscapes, elusive microtonal structures fade gently in and out, sounds fade to noise and back to sound again and create a world of surreal sonic phantom images.

Ganesh Anandan is an Indian percussionist active in musical fields ranging from traditional Carnatic to contemporary improvised music. He studied the kural (bamboo flute) and the mridangam (trad. percussion instrument) in his native city of Bangalore, India, before moving 1976 to Canada, where he studied piano and western percussion and began his prolific musical career. As an experimental luthier Ganesh started building Percussion Shruti Instruments in 1995 based on the Indian 22 interval octave. He built the electric 6 and 12 string shruti stick, which he usually prepares to obtain a wider sonic palette of tonal and percussive sounds and developed unique personal playing techniques including transposed Carnatic finger drumming style on these instruments.
Ganesh has worked with a variety of international artists and ensembles including: Ensemble Modern (for which he wrote a piece in 2005), Conny Bauer, Hans Reichel, Omar Sosa, Malcolm Goldstein, Glen Velez, Bob Brozman, Glen Moore, Kazuhisa Uchihashi, Ramachandra Borcar, Ramesh Shotham, Karnataka College of Percussion, Debashish Bhattacharya, sculptor Pascal Dufaux and in the field of theater & dance: Nouveau Théâtre Expérimental, Robert Lepage, Margie Gillis and many others. He has recorded numerous CDs and has been commissioned to compose music for various Film, Theatre and Contemporary Dance projects.

Marcello Lussana produces computer music for audiovisual performances, dance, and theater and established himself as an improviser in the Berlin ‘Echtzeitmusik’ scene as a live electronics musician.

Kriton Beyer is a Greek-German musician and composer, who – as a performer and improviser – mainly works with the harmonium and the daxophone. He studied musicology in Greece where he played with a variety of local music groups. In 2004 he moved to Berlin, where he got heavily involved in the improvised music scene of the city.
Since then he has worked with many musicians like Axel Dörner, Tristan Honsinger, Tomomi Adachi, Kresten Osgood, Richard Scott, Floros Floridis, Matthias Bauer, Olaf Rupp, Antonis Anissegos, Nicola Hein, Els Vandeweyer, Liz Allbee and Harri Sjöström. Kriton Beyer is also a member of the electroacoustic trio “uproot“, the ensembles “id“, “Crosstalk Jitter” and the “Berlin Soundpainting Orchestra“. As an improvising musician, he has performed throughout Europe.
His compositions are usually characterized by conceptualism, while some of his more recent work focuses on pattern formation of sonic events in time continua. Kriton Beyer has also conceived and commissioned the music software CinePrompt®, which was specially developed for the use for live musical performance and live recording to films.

The music of 3εll is characterized by his enthusiasm and desire for interaction. His compositions create an organic connection between improvisation and composition, showing particular interest in rhythmic experiments. Elements such as polytempo, isorhythmics, polymetric shifts and the gray areas of rhythmic phrasing are his particular interests as a composer. 3εll references beat changes and grooving particles of Stravinsky, the "extended rhythm" of Messiaen as well as the polyphonic rhythmic layers of Ligeti and Nancarrow. Last but not least, he accomplishes to show the proximity to the roots of jazz in West African rhythms in his work. The latter needs, moreover, a dramaturgical idea that is historically alien to European composition: that of the obsessive, the static and the ecstatic, which results from the form of dense polyphonic rhythms, which are constantly repeated and thereby unfold their musical intensity – and emphasize the vertical. This contrasts with the European principle of composition of the process of catharsis, the narrative of musical "history" – that emphasizes the horizontal. Both of these opposites find their place in the music of 3εll. 3εll does not consider this a contradiction, but thinks of it as a question, an incentive, a possibility. All this is picked up by the ensemble in an interpretive and improvisational way: sometimes continuing, sometimes subversively counteracting these elements. This creates structures that 3εll, as a composer, neither controls nor wished for in any case. – This gives his music the special charm and the beauty of the interaction. The joy of playing, which is discovered every time anew.

CD: Obsessions (2016) - WismART

Press:

Obsessions build upon passion. The music of Bell does not come across as composed music but rather it grows organically. And it seems as if every instrument tries to cross the border between melodic and percussive part, dances between solo and dialogic parts. In Bells music, repetitive motifs and motif fragments become a beat, and even if sound surfaces are set against sound lines (loops), they are always set in relation to the groove.
(Friederike Wißmann)

Stunningly beautiful: Silke Eberhard, Nikolaus Neuser, Antonis Anissegos and Boris Bell create a sounding, fourteen-part masterpiece of contemporary music. It is a music of movement - out of motifs they develop melody chains that burn up, disappear and seep into new motives. It is a music of encounter. Rock riffs meet jazzy melodic ideas. It is a music of contrasts. Lightning-like, silvery solos are suddenly stopped by a single note or they flow into rhythmically strongly accentuated, tight melody chains. Each of the four instrumentalists shines with musical ideas and virtussity, and the pieces by Boris Bell (...) create the ideal setting for that. Highly recommended!
(Matthias Bäumel)
