Agathe Simon is a French artist, born in 1977. She lives and works in Paris. She is a Ph.D. holder from Sorbonne University and from Paris Conservatoire (CNSMDP). She is frequently invited abroad for creative residencies.
Since 2008, Simon has created a cycle comprising of fictional characters. Her scope is to explore and warp the borders often ambiguous and sometimes nonexistent between reality and imagination. Her work unfolds in various media: installation, text, video, sound. Simon’s artistic process questions politics and imagination in different ways: freedoms, history, fiction, intangible heritage. Her work is driven by a humanistic vision through which otherness and new horizons are regularly present.
Agathe Simon's exhibition Antartica will be shown at Audiorama 8-21 March: http://www.audiorama.se/antarctica-agathe-simon/

Jamie Drouin (Canadian, b.1970) explores the materiality of sensory perception. His minimalist works in audio, sculpture, and drawing use simple, yet formal systems of change within one or two elements to highlight a particular aspect of how the senses process shape and sound.
During his residency at EMS, Drouin will be delving into the institute’s vintage Buchla 200 modular synthesizer to investigate the sounds which occur at the threshold of low analogue signal.
