SOUND ROOM XXXVII
Antoine Läng is a vocalist from Geneva, Switzerland, who builds an important part of his work on the exploration of raw features of the voice, peripheral sounds and parasites, intimate and incidental noises as well as strategies of abstraction - restoration of these sounds as musical material and their projection - dissemination in the space, somewhere between electroacoustic and noise music involves extended techniques and acoustic devices (megaphone amplification or electronic treatment). Performing in various ensembles (dQtç, InsubMetaOrchestra, Leon, Blind Thorns, duo with Michel Doneda) he is also involved in Insubordinations and Akouphène, two associations promoting improvisation and experimental music in Switzerland.
Tuukka Haapakorpi is a visual and sound artist established on many fields including electronic music, non-idiomatic improvisation, extended technique and outsider songwriting. He is associated with ensembles like Horst Quartet and Aikuisen Viha and sometimes performs under his singer-songwriter moniker Patrik Pakokauhu.
Roomet Jakapi is a vocal improviser from Estonia who mixes his unconventional sounds with live electronics. He has collaborated with Fred Frith, Louise Dam Eckardt Jensen, Jerzy Mazzoll, Sławek Janicki, Taavi Kerikmäe, and many others. He is also a researcher at Tartu University whose work focuses on Early Modern Philosophy.
