BeBab (DE)

Morgan Jenks (USA)

Morgan Jenks is an audiovisual artist based in central Texas whose work spans music composition, interactive media, visual art and education. Most of his recent projects probe the growing rift between technologized society and the non-man-made, gathering field recordings of sounds and images as a catalyst to spend more time exploring the outdoors, and exploring the recorded data with computers to create works that fluctuate ambiguously between idealization and deconstruction.

Jean P’ark (DE)

Jean P’ark is a multi-instrumentalist and sound artist from Berlin, Germany. She is playing in different projects as well as solo with the musical focus on minimalism, repetition, sound in itself, extreme dynamics, also free tonal improvisation and extended techniques and preparations on their instruments (saxophones, clarinets, keyboards, electronics, string instruments) using those techniques to create atmospheres and varying moods and always questioning how can these sounds influence the (well-) being of herself and others.
