The works of Alessandro Amaducci, Angelica Bergamini, Manuel Diaz, Eleonora Manca, Isabel Pérez De Pulgar and Lino Strangis invite us into a dreamlike journey in order to face the intellectual challenges of this age while trying to re-establish its balance, accepting the necessity to reinvent the world. Something profound seems to be happening in the weakness and darkness of the human condition… sometimes a small breath can change things.

In a world full of solitude, violence, and unbalanced economics, the artists call on their audience to search inside themselves for a new consciousness and equilibrium and to overcome the thresholds of perception and space-time dimensions. These works encourage us to use meditation to negotiate our contemporary spiritual ambivalence: because we live everyday between existing and non-existing, between living and non-living, between being seen and being invisible.

ABOUT

Ikue Mori​ moved from her native city of Tokyo to New York in 1977. She started playing drums and soon
formed the seminal NO WAVE band DNA, with fellow noise pioneers Arto Lindsay and Tim Wright.
DNA enjoyed legendary cult status, while creating a new brand of radical rhythms and dissonant sounds;
forever altering the face of rock music.

In the mid 80's Ikue started in employ drum machines in the unlikely context of improvised music. While
limited to the standard technology provided by the drum machine, she has nevertheless forged her own
highly sensitive signature style. Through out in 90's She has subsequently collaborated with numerous
improvisors throughout the US, Europe, and Asia, while continuing to produce and record her own music.
1998, She was invited to perform with Ensemble Modern as the soloist along with Zeena Parkins, and
composer Fred Frith, also "One hundred Aspects of the Moon" commissioned by Roulette/Mary Flagler
Cary Charitable Trust. Ikue won the Distinctive Award for Prix Ars Electronics Digital Music category in
99.

In 2000 Ikue started using the laptop computer to expand on her already signature sound, thus
broadening her scope of musical expression. 2000 commissioned by the KITCHEN ensemble, wrote and
premiered the piece "Aphorism", also awarded Civitella Ranieri Foundation Fellowship.
2003 commissioned by RELACHE Ensemble to write a piece for film In the Street and premiered in

Conservatory, Mills College, Stanford University, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Peter Evans​ is a trumpet player and improvisor/composer based in New York City since 2003. Evans is
part of a broad, hybridized scene of musical experimentation and his work cuts across a wide range of
modern musical practices and traditions. Peter is committed to the simultaneously self-determining and
collaborative nature of musical improvisation as a compositional tool, and works with an ever-expanding
group of musicians and composers in the creation of new music. His primary groups as a leader are the
Peter Evans Ensemble and Being & Becoming. Evans has been exploring solo trumpet music since 2002
and is widely recognized as a leading voice in the field, having released several recordings over the past
decade. He is a member of the cooperative groups Pulverize the Sound (with Mike Pride and Tim Dahl)
and Rocket Science (with Evan Parker, Craig Taborn and Sam Pluta) and is constantly experimenting
and forming new configurations with like minded players. As a composer, he has been commissioned by
the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), Yarn/Wire, the Donaueschingen Musiktage Festival, the
Jerome Foundation's Emerging Artist Program, and the Doris Duke Foundation. Evans has presented
and/or performed his works at major festivals worldwide and tours his own groups extensively. He has
worked with some of the leading figures in new music: John Zorn, Ingrid Laubrock, Jim Black, Weasel
Walter, Ambrose Akinmusere, Matana Roberts, Tyshawn Sorey, Levy Lorenzo, Nate Wooley, Steve
Schick, Mary Halvorson, Joe McPhee and performs with both ICE and the Wet Ink Ensemble. He has
been releasing recordings on his own label, More is More, since 2011. 2018 will see the release of a new
solo album, the first duo album with Levy Lorenzo, a new record by Pulverize the Sound, and the new
album by the Peter Evans Ensemble.
