!|\|_K o L //\\ B is a Women Produce Music pilot series bringing together pioneering, established, and emerging composer producers, to collaborate in various studios and pop-up locations.
Utilising the studio as an instrument - a laboratory - for the experimentation of sound, and as a compositional tool, WPM founder, composer producer Katia Isakoff Altersonic Sound, Add N To X, Mute Records, John Foxx and Steve D’Agostino Evidence of Time Travel, invites artists to temporarily move away from their solitary practices and spaces; to open the door to their studios and to create in others; to share and exchange knowledge, skills and experiences, to offer listeners and viewers rare glimpses and unique insights into the human-to-human // human-to-machine possibilities and interactions, with key moments captured on film and produced performances captured on record.
For the first in this series, Katia is joined by:
Suzanne Ciani a five-time Grammy award nominated composer, electronic music pioneer, and neo-classical recording artist whose work has been featured in countless commercials, video games, and feature films. Over the course of her 40+ year career, she has released 16 solo albums, including Seven Waves, The Velocity of Love, and most recently, her comeback quadraphonic Buchla modular synth performance recording LIVE Quadraphonic.
Suzanne's been recognized as Keyboard Magazine's "New Age Keyboardist of the Year," provided the voice and sounds for Bally's groundbreaking "Xenon" pinball machine, created Coca-Cola’s pop-and-pour sound, designed Atari’s sound logo, played concerts all over the globe, and carved out a niche as one of the most creatively successful female composers in the world. A Life in Waves, a documentary about Ciani’s life and work, debuted at SXSW and is available to watch on all digital platforms.
Emerging composer performer Anil Aykan a designer and member of the minimal electronic duo Fragile Self, whose increasing need for a collective experience and social communication through art led her to a double life between visual arts and music. She is currently exploring the sound spectrum and potential of beats as well as human voice to express both the subconscious and extreme states of mind.
Record producer, mixer and recording engineer Marta Salongni who, when not in the studio, can be found playing both composed and improvised live sets in and around London using tape machines, loops, and feedbacks. Mix credits include: Bjork, MiA, Django Django, Factory Floor; Engineering: The xx, Goldfrapp, FKA Twigs ; Production: The Orielles, Georgia Ruth, Hero Fisher + more.
The first in this series of works will debut with a live performance and private screening, followed by a Q&A session.
