Selected Truths Present

John McCowen is a New York based composer and performer whose work focuses on extending the possibilities of the clarinet family. John embraces long-form drones, difference tones, and beating harmonics as a means to extrude the dimensionality within - treating the clarinet as an acoustic synthesizer.

>> Lu Wang's Silent in whisper is a sound reactive light installation composed by two objects which transfer different sound behavior into light source.

Berglind Tómasdóttir is a flutist and interdisciplinary artist living in Reykjavík, Iceland. In her work she frequently explores identity and archetypes, as well as music as a social phenomenon.
