About Pulse Study II:

Extending shaking from its coding as something involuntary, Judith Hamann's larger Shaking Studies project considers shaking in the form of micro- and macro pulsing: rhythm, tremor, vibrato, wolf tones, and partial activity. Practiced and performed as modules (like studies or etudes), these techniques have developed into individual components that present the performer with an elasticity of material to navigate in performance, as improvised material within an established framework. However, in this context it is not the performer alone who dictates the rate and responsiveness of shaking; rather, this work treats the cello itself as an actant (in the sense of a source of action), using an extended conception of sphygmology (pulse reading), to dictate the tempo of tremor and rhythmic activity based on a particular set of techniques that make the cello visibly and audibly shake. The relationship established here is one that is symbiotic and generative in its unfolding.

JUDITH HAMANN's recent work has been focused on an examination of expressions and manifestations of "shaking" in her solo performance practice; a collection of new works for cello and humming; and "Materialities of Realisation" (a discourse-based project with Charles Curtis).

As a soloist, Judith is a champion of new and rarely performed music and immersive approaches to sound. She is a member of Golden Fur (with James Rushford and Samuel Dunscombe) and has long-standing duo projects with Anthea Caddy, Rosalind Hall, Carolyn Connors, and Lori Goldston. Her interdisciplinary and experimental projects include collaborative work with visual artists Keith Deverell and Sabina Maselli and filmmakers Joshua Bonnetta and Benedetta De Alessi. Her installation works have been presented in Melbourne, San Diego, the Noosa Hinterlands, and at the Venice Biennale of Architecture.

JON HEILBRON is a double bass player, improviser, and composer working in the areas of contemporary classical, improvised, and experimental music. His collaborative groups include Ellipsis, Arches, DRUM, and doubleFRAU, and he is the founder of the Phonetic Orchestra.

His recent releases include Puma Court (Another Timbre) for two basses and two hardanger fiddles; Pieces for Chord Organs (Intonema); With All Your Mysteries in the Open Air (Inexhaustible Editions) with Fredrik Rasten; and Studio & Rotonda (Intonema) with Ilia Belorukov.
