Nora-Louise Müller (Germany)
has collaborated with numerous well-known composers in her intense occupation with contemporary music, including performing in the Composer in Residence program at the contemporary music festival chiffren – Kieler Tage für Neue Musik.
In 2007, she began working with an extraordinary instrument: the Bohlen-Pierce clarinet which uses a (very!) different harmonic tone system. As one of only five clarinetists worldwide who perform on this particular instrument she was invited to enrich the first Bohlen-Pierce conference in Boston, Massachussetts in 2010 with her performances, and will be playing this radical instrument in festival DaNes.

12 September
Bernhard Mikuskovics (
“Just as the manifold beauty of light reveals itself in the spectral colours of a rainbow, we experience the manifold beauty of a single tone in the sound colours of its overtones.”
Overtone singer and multiinstrumentalist Bernhard Mikuskovics started to research on ethnic instruments after graduating from a school for graphic design & printing processes and has been working since then extensively on various eclectic art projects surrounding music, painting and literature.

“Being preoccupied with objectness and photography, I create images of various objects, of dry, meaningless artefacts of everyday world. At the same time I seek the same artefacts self-referentially in the world of photography. This, to me, is an exercise in patience in a meaningless field, which nonetheless enables intense creativity, engagement and enthusiasm. Although there are concrete social issues that art should be providing answers to, I tend to shut myself in the politics of the medium, in the politics of my own finger on the shutter button, the gaze in the viewfinder, in the strategy of developing and enlarging photographs, as well as the politics of selecting and exhibiting. I apologize for not possessing any additional knowledge of the world, I only mean to create it through my activity. If there is an aim to my exhibition, this is it.”  – Peter Rauch

Benoit Maubrey: Die Audio Gruppe

Date: 17/06/2011

Location: Gallery KiBela, Maribor – Slovenia

Organisers / Producers:  ACE KIBLA


Benoît Maubrey is the director of DIE AUDIO GRUPPE, Berlin-based art group that build and perform with electronic clothes. Basically these are electro-acoustic clothes and dresses (equipped with amplifiers and loudspeakers) that make sounds by interacting thematically and acoustically with their environment. The AUDIO BALLERINAS use – among other electronic instruments – light sensors that enable them to produce sounds through the interaction of their movements and the surrounding light (PEEPER choreography). Via movement sensors they can also trigger electronic sounds that are subsequently choreographed – or “orchestrated”– into musical compositions as an “audio ballet” (YAMAHA choreography). A variety of other electronic instruments (mini-computers, samplers, contact microphones, cassette and MP3 players, and radio receivers) allow them to work with the sounds, surfaces, and topographies of the space around them in a variety of solo or group choreographies.
