About the artists:
The work of digital media artist Greg Kowalski lies at the intersection of theater and performance art. His performance pieces incorporate interactive video projection systems of his own design that use movement, light or sound to create live visuals. Greg has also projected for numerous sound artists using his systems. The ability to create images through performance is essential to his concept of live projection.
Dorothy Chan is a New York and DC-based (toy) pianist, improviser, sound-maker and educator. A new-music advocate, she enjoys exploring experimental repertoire and new sounds on the piano, prepared piano and toy piano. She is the founding member of toy piano electronic duo Chromic Duo (CAG artists), and chamber collective ensemble mise-en, and has premiered, performed and recorded hundreds of new works. Past appearances include performances at Carnegie Hall (New York, USA), Roulette Intermedium (New York, USA), Bösendorfer Saal (Vienna, Austria), BEXCO (Busan, Korea), Kapellet Produktion (Stockholm, Sweden), and at music festivals such as SXSW (Austin, USA), Moving Sounds Festival (New York, USA), Gaida Festival (Vilnius, Lithuania), and the Arena Festival (Riga, Latvia).
Noisteria Emission is the modular synthesizer project of Rusty Skelding of Dayton, Ohio. The sound is a blend of the bizarre and abrasive. Taking cues from the experimental synthesis of the late 60’s west coast and combining it with modern technologies and approach creates a soundscape that gives a nod to the past yet reaches into the future.
Danielle Milam (electronics) and Alison Colman (violin) have been collaborating since 2020. Their duo has performed in various venues around central Ohio, such as Double Happiness, Dirty Dungarees, and It Looks Like Its Open, as well for the Fire Is Free Vernal Equinox online festival.
