Fluidian

Born:

Fluidian (Emil Gherasim, b. 1973) composer, musician, sound artist. His work includes electroacoustic and electronic art music, chamber music, film and theatre music, sound illustrations for contemporary dance and visual performances, minimalist textural music, sound paintings and ambient soundscapes.
His music is very personal and deeply meditative, with huge visual emotions, combining minimalist sound textures with a specific manner of improvisation. Due to his playing techniques like wind-guitar (blowing across the strings) or bowed-guitar (using a violin bow), manipulated with electronics and using his own minimalistic textural concept, his music transforms into a contemplative, floating sound journey.
Initially self-taught, he studied and graduated in music composition, mentored by award-winning composer Ede Terényi, at the Music Academy in Cluj-Napoca, Romania.
Fluidian is best known for his solo performances, but has also been collaborate with artists like Arve HenriksenTibor SzemzőLászló GőzEde TerényiPetre IonuțescuPaul TaylorSándor SzabóRoland Heidrich and many more.
In addition, he composes original music for theater plays, dance performances, films and new textural electronic art music for different sound ensembles.

Among his collaborative projects from the last years could be highlighted the "Opaque Lights" album created in collaboration with Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen"Pendular Emotions" album with Romanian trumpeter Petre Ionuțescu and a soundtrack co-written with Arve Henriksen for Anastasia Isachsen's audio-visual light art installation "Perspective" premiered at Fjord Oslo Light Art Festival, Norway.

Christopher Robin Cox

Born:

Christopher Robin Cox is a veteran creative improvising trombonist, originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, who now lives in Budapest, Hungary.

After nearly 10 years away from playing music full time, earning three academic degrees, including a PhD in Geography,  he decided to return to his horn with a vengeance. He currently leads a trio and a double-bass quartet in Budapest and is beginning to tour around Central Europe as a soloist under the name AlOnE.

He brings a huge, dark tone, and a style that utilizes bluesy, gravely split-tones, plunger, and other prepared techniques. As an improviser, he is equally comfortable playing with lots of space and in more intense improvisation settings. He frequently utilizes effects pedals and loopers to create ambient soundscapes that are more akin to movie soundtracks that free jazz. However, during his time growing up the San Francisco Bay Area, he played with greats like Glenn spearman, Marco Eneidi, Donald Robinson, Garth Powell, and George Cremasci to name a few. He has also performed with George Cartwrite, Chris Bates, Nathan Hanson, and Jason Robinson.
