Kangding ray’s music reflects his wide musical background, and a particular way of merging beats and textured soundscapes into slowly evolving compositions.
Robin Fox presents at Unsound Festival in Krakow, (9-16, October, 2011) “3 Studies for the Bionic Ear” a multi-channel video and sound visual installation that has developed through research undertaken by the Australian artist, in collaboration with the Bionic Ear Institute, to create work that can be appreciated by cochlear implant users and conventional listeners alike. This is a response to the fact that, for Bionic Ear users, listening to live music can be a difficult experience.
Unsound Krakow was established in 2003 in Krakow, Poland, as a festival of advanced music. Starting out as an underground event, in recent years the festival has grown in size and name. Fundacja Tone currently produces the annual festival in Krakow in October each year, and in spring 2012 will produce the third Unsound Festival New York with local producers, curators, venues and cultural institutes in that city.
