crys cole is a Canadian sound artist working in composition, improvised performance and sound installation. Generating subtle and imperfect sounds through haptic gestures and seemingly mundane materials, she creates textural works that continuously retune the ear. Alongside her solo work, she has ongoing collaborations w/ Oren Ambarchi, Francis Plagne, Ora Clementi (w/ James Rushford) & more.
Golden Fur is an Australian chamber ensemble, comprising Sam Dunscombe (clarinets, electronics), Judith Hamann (cello) and James Rushford (keyboards, viola). Golden Fur is dedicated to the creation of new work by living composers and visual artists, and the presentation of under-represented works from the twentieth and twenty-first century musical underground.
James Richards is an artist living and working in Berlin.
Songs of Cockaigne is a special edition of Seeing Is Believing, anorak’s monthly series dedicated to artists’ moving image. The programme is curated by Lukas Ludwig and Johanna Markert and realised with the kind support of Anorak e. V. members.
