Mikael Szafirowski, born in Helsinki is currently trying to influence the tri-nation area of Alsace. His tools and thus subjects of interest are psychoacoustics, non-gesturality and reflection. Using sound sources from a simple oscillator to the complexity of a laminate guitar M.S. evades the traps of idioms in lieu of things incertain – and sometimes failed. There is always the next concert.
In the past M.S. has been founding the Royal Improvisers Orchestra and the musician collective Tumult. He’s a member of Rooie Waas, Naked Wolf and ZGB.
Alex Riva is living in Zürich at the moment. He plays improvised music with recorders of different sizes, discovering unexpected sonorities and new dimensions of the instrument. Since 2008 A. R. is collaborating with international musicians, dancers and filmmakers. Kilirlumb is a bustling trio with Dominik Blum on analog synthesizers and Marc Kilchenmann on the contrabassoon. For many years A. R. is playing free-noise in the duo with bassist Lukas Müller. Riva/Müller have been touring in France and Switzerland in 2015. Living in south of France from 2008 – 2014 A. R. has been collaborating with various performers, moving somewhere between Noise, Metal, Post-Avantgarde and experimental chamber music. A. R. is to 99% an autodidact. Or more.
