::::: ARTIST INFO :::::
Hortense is half of Cherche Encore.
Hortense tries to use live coding as a way to talk about how struggling with one's mental health affects artistic practice. Hopefully it'll also sound good.
Rachael Melanson (a.k.a Rosen) is a transmedia artist from the UK who makes use of sound environments and possible play spaces to explore the fissure between author/ reader and online/offline environments.
Rosen is part of the Quantum Natives collective, and also presents an occasional radio show called HYPHEN.

Algorave Stockholm, in collaboration with Sound of Stockholm, with generous support from Stockholm Stad, proudly presents an evening with Hara Alonso (ES) and Kindohm (US).
Kindohm is a programmer and sound artist from Minneapolis, USA.
Kindohm, or Mike Hodnick, composes and performs exclusively with the TidalCycles live-coding environment, using conditional patterning logic to create off-kilter, bass-heavy dancefloor interruptions.
Hara Alonso will perform an androgynous duet for piano and electronics in which the boundary between the two realms melts away to reveal a hybrid form. The resultant hyperinstrument exists as an exploration of inherited sonorities as well as new contaminated forms of acting and being.
Coming from a classical background as a pianist she is currently working at the intersection of new technologies and composition most recently incorporating live coding into her ongoing exploration of performative practice.
"I want to explore the piano as a new instrument, free of tradition and romanticism."
Algorave Stockholm, in collaboration with Under Bron, with generous support from Stockholm Stad, proudly presents an evening with Maria w Horn (SE) and Calum Gunn (UK).
Calum Gunn is a Computer Musician.
Born 1986 in scotland, lives in london, runs conditional, a record label and radio show on resonance extra.
Keywords: Antagonistic synthesis, indeterminism, SuperCollider, rave, apophenia, morphed, gunpla, anxiety, multidimensionality, irritating
Maria w Horn is interested in the manipulation of time and space through sonic extremes, and overload/loss of perceptual stimuli. Her works examines aspects of human perception, how audio and visual stimuli can conspire to transcend everyday life and invoke alternate frames of mind. Her musical output oscillates between extended drone textures and high-density gestural music with intense strobe lights and visual material, often based on analog video equipment.
She is a part of Sthlm Drone Society, an association working to promote slow and gradually evolving timbral music, and has released music on Holodisc, Ambitious tapes and her own label XKatedral.

Sissel Wincent is part of the collective Drömfakulteten. Her unique strand of techno offshoot is immensely hypnotic and mesmerising. Highly atuned to the subtlest of details present within her work the listener is rewarded with a profound awareness and deep involvement.
