SOUND ROOM LXXVI
Megan Steinberg makes mildly experimental music for instruments and fixed media which is driven largely by timbre and space, using prepared instruments, found audio and graphic notation. She is fascinated by space, silence and architecture’s both direct and indirect control over sound.
Megan also performs free improv & abstract turntable in hopes to further the repertoire and reputation of it as an instrument. She has composed for wonderful musicians and ensembles including CHROMA, Distractfold, Kokoro Ensemble, Apartment House and Loré Lixenberg.
Phil Maguire is an experimental musician/improviser/sound artist making reductive music that explores emptiness and malfunction. Simplicity is at the core of his work. He uses cheap electronics, open source software, synthesis, and obsolete audio equipment to create sparse sonic environments for personal reflection. These are often very quiet; very loud; loud made quiet; quiet made loud. Phil runs verz, a label and series presenting quiet music and sound art.
Net is Edward Trethowan, an English musician interested in textural adventures and the manipulation and re-contextualisation of sonic materials. Often inspired by soundscapes of wildlife and weather, such the wind over water or through trees, his work usually emphasises quietness, detail, continuous change and melodic texture. He lives in Tampere, Finland.
