Kevin CK Lo
This performance: there’ll be the negotiation of a prepared, internally microphoned flute with some wayward 2016 child of stochastic synthesis that tends toward high cpu high definition high order synthesis, modularity without the wires and hardware expense. Abstractions in topological form and autophagic structures.
Kevin CK Lo is a composer, choreographer and improviser based in Oakland (previously Melbourne, Australia; orig. New Zealand), also works with iterative visuals, machinic text and spatialization, also performs in the duo DROUGHT SPA with alex cruse.
XelmYa (Alexa Renger – violin, Sylvia Hinz – recorder, Guests – violoncello) was founded in 2008.
One of their goals: to push, foster and develop the instrumentation of the baroque trio sonata into contemporary music and modern times. Since their formation, they performed numerous premieres composed especially for this instrumentation by e.g. Matthias Spahlinger (DE), Makiko Nishikaze (JP), Gunnar Karel Másson (IS), Luis Hilario Arévalo (MX), Arturo Corrales (SV), Tania Sikelianou (GR), Damian Barbeler (AU), and John Strieder (DE). The promotion of contemporary music and music by female composers are two of the main topics of XelmYa.
