More about the artists:

Marina Rosenfeld

Marina Rosenfeld is an artist and composer based in Brooklyn, New York. Over the last 30 years she has created a significant body of work spanning the fields of music, performance, and installation, articulating a critical position in relation to aural and visual modernisms and histories of material and social practice in sound. Turntablism and improvisation have been central concerns and areas of research and practice. Rosenfeld´s work has been commissioned and exhibited widely, including recent solo institutional exhibitions ‘We’ll start a fire’ at Kunsthaus Baselland (2021), ‘Music Stands’ at the Artists Institute (2019), and ’Deathstar’ at Portikus Frankfurt (2017), Park Avenue Armory, Museum of Modern Art, Whitney and Liverpool
Biennials, among others. For more information about Marina, visit marinarosenfeld.com.

Ted Riederer

A “one-time refugee from punk and sometime band member,” Ted Riederer has armed himself with electric guitars, amplifiers, old LPs, record players, drum kits, hard disk recorders, photography equipment, a vinyl record lathe, and long-stemmed roses as he’s ambled artistically from the Americas to the Antipodes. His work has been shown nationally and internationally including exhibitions at PS1, Prospect 1.5, Goff and Rosenthal Berlin, Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery, Jack Hanley Gallery (San Francisco), Marianne Boesky Gallery, the Liverpool Biennial, and the Dhaka Arts Center, Bangladesh.

Phill Niblock

An intermedia artist using music, film, photography, video and computers, Phill has been creating music and intermedia performances that have been shown at numerous venues around the world since the mid-1960s. Since 1985, he has served as the director of the Experimental Intermedia Foundation, a foundation for avant-garde music based in New York with a branch in Ghent, and curator of the foundation’s record label XI. Known for his thick, loud drones of music, Niblock’s signature sound is filled with microtones of instrumental timbres that generate many other tones in the performance space. In 2013, his diverse artistic career was the subject of a retrospective realised in partnership between Circuit (Contemporary Art Centre Lausanne) and Musée de l’Elysée. The following year Niblock was honored with the prestigious Foundation for Contemporary Arts John Cage Award. For more information about Phill, visit

Zachary Paul

Zachary Paul is a violinist and composer currently located in New York. His work explores the boundaries of perception, the invocation of trance states, and the juxtaposition of stasis and movement. In live performance, he builds lush soundscapes via improvisation, representing his immediate experience & surrounding space. His work draws from a long lineage of artists exploring sustained tones within organic performance, including Tony Conrad, Pauline Oliveros, and La Monte Young. Zachary has released music on Touch, The Tapeworm, Never Content, Preserved Sound, and Illuminated Paths. For more information about Zachary, visit
