At EMS, supported by Polska Institutet and Help Musicians UK, Radek Rudnicki is going to work on the new Space F!ght album using both Buchla and Serge modular synthesisers with previously recorded live and studio material. Furthermore, he will investigate the use of data with modular analog synthesis.
Space F!ght is an audio and visual live experience that explores the interaction between 3D projection mapping and improvised music. Drawing upon influences from a wide range of music styles, Space F!ght blends saxophone (James Mainwaring), voice (Anna Edgington) trumpet (Matt Postle) percussion (Enrico Bertelli), guitar (Tom Adams) and electronic hardware (Radek Rudnicki) to create an unique and powerful sound, visualised through with custom made 3D projections (Jakub Hader).

Attilio Novellino is an Italian sound artist born in 1983. By using analog and digital instruments, field recordings, harsh distortions, samples and white noise, he aims to build a psychoacoustic and chaotic dimension around the subtle perception of the “feel”, that has been called a "dronegaze". Over the last years, Novellino has released solo albums for Valeot (Au) and Small Doses (USA) and he has contributed to many compilation projects focused on drone and ambient music from a range of international labels, such as Basses Frequences (Fr), Consouling Sounds(Be), Futuresequence (USA). His new LP will be released by IDEA Records (USA) during 2016.
Attilio's residency is kindly supported by the Italian Culture Institute in Stockholm.

Alessio Capovilla (1985, Turin, italy ) is an Italian composer who works under the moniker of XIII. He is interested in the synthesis and sound modeling. The (im)perfect sound, the (not) punctual distortion or the (un)suitable atmosphere, are constantly researched by XIII through synthesis, computer music and field recording, crossing beats and genres towards something not easily definable.
In April 2015 he released his debut album on Italo-berlinese Gang Of Ducks records. He is currently working on his second studio album.

Merino is interested in different approaches related with sound composition and digital arts such the exploration of time, poetic and philosophical relationship between Subject-Object and the Otherness, the Sublime, or sound specific/plural objects in multifocal spaces. Elías presents his work in installations and sonic works, which are exhibited, released, performed and broadcasted internationally.
Currently he is a PhD researcher in Computer Music at University of Huddersfield.

Eleonora Oreggia (xname) is an interdisciplinary artist born in Milan and based in London. She makes interactive installations and live performances.
Made of self built electronics, lines of code, and other inert matter (noise, dust), her alchemic constructions often contain a live element, something that has to happen, yet unpredictable. Her live compositions transform light and other electromagnetic frequencies in sound waves through self built synthetisers and complex semi chaotic machines. The result is an hypnotic spectacle dominated by industrial and noise-techno frequencies.
