Rare Frequency Podcast (Special Ed. 04: Gal, i8u, Yuko Nexus6 Live 08.24.06

Austrian-born composer and sound artist Bernhard Gal creates electronic and electro-acoustic music, as well as compositions for acoustic instruments. His projects and sound installations incorporate light, objects, video projections and spatial concepts. He runs the record label Gromoga Records and is director of the Austrian art organization "sp ce". Currently, Gal divides his time between Vienna and Berlin, where he also teaches sound art at the University of Arts.

France Jobin, aka i8u, is a sound / installation / web artist residing in Montreal, Canada. I8u's audio art can be qualified as sound-sculpture. It reveals powerful, opaque and complex sound environments where analog and digital meet. Her installation/web art follow a parallel path, incorporating both musical and visual elements. I8u has created solo recordings for (bake/staalplaat) (piehead) (oral) as well as collaborative works with Martin Tétreault, David Kristian and Tomas Phillips. She has been included in compilations on ATAK (Japan), bremsstrahlung (USA) and Mutek (Canada).

Yuko Nexus 6 is a sound artist based in Hikone, Japan. Using a mixture of field recordings, cut-up samples, digital processing, and her own voice, Yuko creates beguiling, often slyly humorous, always wonderfully idiosyncratic sonic collages and compositions. Conscious of the unspectacular dryness of an artist in front of her computer, in performance she is constantly inventing and adding little elements like grains of sand that derail her music towards something alive and astute. She received an honorary mention in Europe's Prix Ars Electronic competition in 2003.
