Lisa Kortschak: Headshots

A performative sound-installation claiming medical audio-patterns as a musical piece.

As a transmedial artist, Lisa Kortschak combines film, sound, music and performance in her work. Lives and works in Vienna.


Casey Moir – Voice, pedals, percussion objects
Johan Moir – Double Bass, objects

A sparkle of sound ignites. Pedals capture, contort and distort. Soundscapes emerge. The bow sings. All things are intricately woven together, captivating space and enticing with intrigue. IGNITE is an organic meeting of the embellished double bass with the amplified extended voice, steered with careful intent through a web of cables, pedals and objects to construct spontaneous composition.

Ignite released their debut album “Ignition” in January 2018. The duo has toured in Scandinavia, Germany, Austria, Hungary, Taiwan and Australia and has done ad-hoc collaborations with musicians such as Burkhard Beins and dancer Ingo Reulucke

Casey Moir is an improviser who explores the extended properties of the voice. Intrigued by unconventional sounds and textures, she incorporates these into her music with determination and subtle precision. She combines the acoustic voice with the use of carefully chosen pedals and percussion objects to elongate, layer and/or embellish a piece or improvisation. She is also an avid composer, who interweaves compositional aspects with free improvisation.
After many years in both Gothenburg, Berlin and Melbourne, she is now based in Stockholm, delving deeper into free improvisation and crossover projects between improvised music, new contemporary music, dance and live visual art.

Johan Moir graduated with his Bachelor of Improvisation at the Academy of Music and Drama, in Gothenburg, Sweden 2011.
After a couple of years in Berlin and Melbourne, Johan is now based in Stockholm dwelling deeper into his solo project where he explores acoustic improvisation on the double bass, focusing on extended techniques, preparations, Just Intonation and psychoacoustic phenomens.
Other main projects for the moment includes his duo IGNITE (with vocalist Casey Moir) as well as a duo with the Portuguese Cello player Guilherme Rodrigues

Billy Roisz / Marta Zapparoli: ultrashall vers.1ultrashall vers.1 is an investigation into the echoes of the inner ultrasonic image of the human body and its rebound as sonic voices in the surrounding external environment.˝˝

Marta Zapparoli is an active experimental sound artist, improviser, performer, and self-taught researcher. She works and lives in Berlin since 2007. In the past fourteen years her sonic work has focused on self-recorded sound from the external world using a wide array of devices, microphones, sensors, ultrasonic, digital and analogue recorders, and in the past four years has also included antennas, radio receivers, and detectors. She works without borders and with many unconventional techniques. She is interested in the boundaries and relations between acoustic ecology, electrosmog (radio wave phenomena, wireless communication, EMF) and natural radio phenomena (VLF). With all the recordings she has captured around the world, she builds strongly narrative and imaginative sonic pieces through live improvisation with real-time tape manipulation.

Billy Roisz lives and works in Vienna/Austria. Her ability to translate experimental music into visual memory images is particularly noteworthy, revealing borrowings from minimal art and conceptual art. She specializes in feedback video and video/sound interaction by using monitors, cameras, video mixingdesks, synchronators, computer, various electronics and a bass guitar for video and sound generating. Her videoworks are distributed by sixpackfilm & lightcone. Her music was released a.o. on editionsMEGO, mikroton and for/wind. She was co-organizer/programmer of annual REHEAT Festival (2007-2015).
