      > about the artists:
      > Tim Barnes
      > Tim Barnes (b.1967) makes noise for a living. He is a sound designer
      > and percussionist in NYC. His manipulations of sound have invaded
      > millions of American homes without anyone even knowing. As a
      > percussionist and performer for almost 20 years, he has collaborated
      > with a diverse range of artists, including Jim O'Rourke, Tony Conrad,
      > Neil Hagerty, avant-folk group Tower Recordings, Ikue Mori,
      > Dean Roberts, Nagisa Ni te, Ira Cohen and Charles Curtis. Over the
      > past three years, Tim has released for the first time the lost
      > recordings of pioneering percussionist Angus MacLise through his
      > label Quakebasket (see www.quakebasket.com for more details). His
      > drum duo record with Chicago percussionist Glenn Kotche, "domoodomo",
      > topped many critics' list for 2000. Most recently, Barnes has
      > recorded his first solo percussion record, entitled "All Acoustics".
      > His solo and duo performances prior to this recording have been
      > primarily electro-acoustic based, but through his performances with
      > both Oren Ambarchi and Michael Schumacher last month, Barnes has
      > begun revisiting the space of acoustic sound generators.
      > Richard Chartier
      > Richard Chartier, minimal sound artist/composer, painter and graphic
      > designer, has recorded critically acclaimed solo recordings for
      > Trente Oiseaux (Germany), LINE (USA), Meme (Japan), Fallt (Ireland),
      > Microwave (The Netherlands) and Intransitive Recordings (USA) as well
      > collaborative works with Nosei Sakata (*0) and Taylor Deupree on 12k
      > (USA). For his cd Series, Chartier was awarded one of twelve
      > Honorable Mentions in the category of Digital Music by the
      > prestigious PRIX ARS ELECTRONICA, 2001 (Linz, Austria).
      > His work has been featured on a number of international compilations
      > including this year's Clicks & Cuts 2 (Mille Plateaux, Germany) and
      > in Computer Music Journal in conjunction with the essay "The
      > Aesthetics of Failure: Post-Digital Tendencies in Contemporary
      > Computer Music" by Kim Cascone (MIT Press, USA). His work explores
      > the relationship between sound, silence and the art of listening.
      > Both his visual and sound works have been exhibited in many galleries
      > and artspaces including the Corcoran Gallery of Art (Washington, DC)
      > and Washington Project for the Arts Projectspace. Over the past
      > several years, he has been invited to perform his sound work at live
      > events in the United States, Canada, and the UK including such noted
      > international electronic music festivals as MUTEK (Montreal),
      > Lovebytes (Sheffield) and Transmissions (Chicago). With Taylor
      > Deupree, he founded the recording label LINE, as a subdivision of 12k
      > focusing new, digital, conceptual, minimalist sound art.

      > Taylor Deupree
      > Taylor Deupree, composer and head of New York's 12k label, has
      > prepared a unique sound set exclusively for his performance at the
      > Diapason Gallery on August 4th. Utilizing a powerbook and a surface
      > controller, Taylor will be mixing a series of 8 second loops to
      > create an improvised 40 minute piece. The majority of the loops are
      > separated freqency ranges from one base file. Mixed together they
      > form the complete file where the freqencies fade in and out over time.
      > The source of the loop comes from a noise hiss treated with granular
      > synthesis algorithms. The result is a light, sibiliant wash of
      > tickling static. Because the sounds have been isolated into 8 second
      > loops, the careful listener will be able to discern patterns and
      > repetitions within the subtle clicks and nuances of the static, thus
      > creating a rhythmic, hypnotic and relaxing soundfield.
      > This piece, as yet untitled, is part of an extended project for
      > installations in an anechoic chamber.
      > Janek Schaefer
      > Janek Schaefer was born in England to Polish and Canadian parents
      > in 1970 and graduated in architecture at the Royal College of Art in
      > 1996. As a sound artist and musician his most notable work has been
      > the invention of the ‘Tri-Phonic1 and ‘Twin1 turntables, alongside
      > the exploration of new experimental ‘Eccentric1 and ‘Fragmented1
      > vinyl cutting techniques. His ‘Recorded Delivery1 project sent a
      > sound activated dictaphone through the post for an installation
      > organised in a self storage centre in London. He has released CD1s

      > called ‘Comae1 whose debut release is due out on Rhiz records
      > [Vienna] this year. Schaefer has toured widely performing live
      > ‘Foundsoundscapes1 composed from the evocative, emotive and dynamic
      > layering of abstracted textures and tones culled from ancient vinyl
      > and manipulated field recordings. Janek was selected as 'Sound
      > Designer of the Year' by Creative Review Magazine [UK] in 1999 and
