ALEX MENDIZABAL is a composer writing music for orchestra, chamber ensembles, and carousel instrumentalists; for stones, paper, and choir; for geological movements; for yourself. Since 1996, he has focused on instrument building and sound spatialization. He has given concerts and underwater installations of various kinds and also written and produced several operettas.

MATTIN is an artist whose work responds to the social and economic conditions of experimental music production through live performance, recordings, and writings. Throughout, he investigates the parameters of improvisation, notably the notion of freedom, to test the genreā€™s very conventions, to make noise. For Mattin, improvisation does not merely entail an interaction between musicians and their instruments but recognizes all the other elements that make up a concert situation. He performs to provoke and to politicize the relations between the active player and the passive audience, transgressing what is understood to be the body of the audience itself, disrupting and constructing its terms anew.
