Franziska Baumann is pioneer in extended vocal technique and interdisciplinary performance, whose work at the intersection of voice, gesture, space and sound weaves together new modes of perception, vocal creation and theatricality. As a vocalist, Baumann explores the human voice as a multi-faceted instrument, expanding traditional boundaries through the incorporation of electronics, video, interdisciplinary visual arts and literature. She has developed an extensive vocabulary of experimental and extended vocal techniques such as multiphonics and glottal clicks and a variety of unique microtonal timbre-modifications, and percussive vocal techniques.

Alexandra Hay is a composer, sonic artist and teacher based in San Fransisco and Auckland. Her work explores processes of gradual transformation through the unfolding of figures, timbres, and resonances, that converge and disperse. Alex will present a new interactive electronic opera-game.

Baumann and Hay will be supported by the trio Bonehead/Kraus/Dryson (Andrew McMillan (coded body motion capture electronic instrument), Kraus (analogue synth) and Phill Dryson ( electric guitar).
