For the series "CC No. 2 - Craving Coincidence", ausland invited six musicians to curate a 2-day mini festival each. Crossing the lines between the seemingly artificial and what we're used to call the organic, between residuals of worldly sound and cool drafts of thought and contemplation in her own music, Swedish-Finnish composer and sound artist Marja Ahti put together the programme for this very 5th edition. Everybody's invited over for two nights of improvised and composed music, sound art and genre-bending electronic endeavours.
crys cole is a Canadian sound artist working in composition, improvised performance and sound installation. Generating subtle and imperfect sounds through haptic gestures and seemingly mundane materials, she creates texturally nuanced works that continuously retune the ear. Cole has performed worldwide both solo and in an array of collaborations, and has ongoing duo projects with Oren Ambarchi and James Rushford (Ora Clementi). Her work has been published by Black Truffle (AU), Penultimate Press (UK), Ultra Eczema (BE), Boomkat (UK), Bocian (PL), Another Timbre (UK), Students of Decay (US) and Infrequency editions (CA/DE). She has exhibited in Canada, Russia, Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, the UK and Thailand.
Catherine Lamb (b. 1982, Olympia, WA) is an active composer exploring the interaction of tone (rational intonation), summations of shapes and shadows, phenomenological expansions, the architectures of the liminal (states in between outside/inside), and the long introduction form. She studied Experimental Music composition with Michael Pisaro, Extended Just Intonation/psychoacoustics with James Tenney, Dhrupad practices and other artforms with Mani Kaul. She initiated Singing by Numbers with Laura Steenberge, Sacred Realism with Bryan Eubanks and Andrew Lafkas, Viola Torros with Johnny Chang, as well as the Harmonic Space Orchestra with various artists including long-term collaborator Rebecca Lane. She currently composers, teaches, experiments, and makes friends in Berlin.
Lucy Railton is active as both a performer in new music and improvisation, and writes her own music for cello, electronics and field recordings, releasing solo records on the labels Editions Mego/GRM and Modern Love, and in collaboration with Peter Zinovieff on PAN. She has been involved in countless projects over years, most recently on those lead by Rhodri Davies, Kit Downes, Blank Forms, Beatrice Dillon and Kali Malone and recently as a member of the Ever Present Orchestra, focusing specifically on the work of Alvin Lucier, Ensemble Contrechamps in Geneva and the Harmonic Space Orchestra. Originally from London, she established the 10 year long series Kammer Klang at Cafe Oto and co-founded the London Contemporary Music Festival in 2013. Residencies include EMS, Sweden and Dark Ecologies/Sonic Acts Norway and commissions by Somerset House, London and INA GRM, Paris.
