JUDY DUNAWAY is primarily known for her numerous works for latex balloons as sound producers, including sculptural sonic performances, sound installations, interactive pieces and acousmatic works. She has presented these works throughout North America and Europe at many important venues, festivals, museums and galleries including the Academy of Media Arts Cologne, Alternative Museum (NYC), Audio Art Festival 2016 (Krakow), Barcelona Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA), Cafe Oto (London), Bang on a Can Festival (NYC), Everson Art Museum (Syracuse), Expo’74 at Mass MoCA, Frau Musica Nova (Germany), the Guelph Jazz Festival (Canada), Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors (NYC), the New Museum of Contemporary Art (NYC), Performance Space 122 (NYC), Podewil (Berlin), Roulette (NYC), the Roy and Edna Disney Center (Los Angeles), Seltsame Musik Festival (Austria) and STEIM (Netherlands).

Dúa de Pel is an ensemble that erases the borders between past and present, between local and universal. Their creations have a notable influence from Spanish folklore, but in them naturally coexist multiple styles, from different periods and cultures, giving rise to an original and inimitable sound. The group was born in Madrid in 2014, when composer Sonia Megías and writer Eva Guillamón decided to join their respective knowledge and their long artistic career to create a music full of poetry. 
……..Since then, they developed an extensive international career, singing their own compositions in places such as the National Auditorium or Teatro Real in Madrid, The Juilliard School in New York, British Museum in London, Culture Square Theater in Shanghai, Instituto Cervantes in Tokyo, through extensive tours throughout Latin America, Asia or Europe.

KATHERINE LIBEROVSKAYA (she/her/hers) is a Canadian intermedia artist based in NYC. Involved in experimental video since the 80’s, she has produced numerous single-channel video art pieces, video installations and video performances, as well as works in other media, that have been shown around the world. Since 2001 her work predominantly focuses on the intersection of moving image with sound/music in various both ephemeral and fixed forms (projections, installations, performances), notably through collaborations with many composers and sound artists in improvised live video+sound concert situations where her live visuals seek to create improvisatory “music” for the eyes. For over 22 years she collaborated with composer/intermedia artist Phill Niblock on various live, video and installation projects. Other frequent collaborators include: Dafna Naphtali, Keiko Uenishi, Shelley Hirsch, Barbara Held, Mia Zabelka, Al Margolis (IF,BWANA), David Watson, among many others. In addition to her art work she curates events in experimental video/film, sound/music and A/V performance, notably the yearly Screen Compositions evenings at EI NYC since 2005 and, since 2006 the OptoSonic Tea salons (co-curated with Ursula Scherrer) in NYC and various nomadic locations in North America and Europe as well as on-line during the Covid pandemic. In 2014 she completed a PhD in art practice entitled “Improvisatory Live Visuals: Playing Images Like a Musical Instrument” at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). She is currently the artistic director of Experimental Intermedia NYC.

ZTIMHCS AIDUALC. Artist’s Statement “My work starts where the media intersect. I am not
interested in the modernity of technology as such but in its capacities
for creating new imaginary dimensions. My arrangements constantly assume
temporary states, reject and re-invent themselves, exploring the
space-time continuum, rendering visible and questioning its borders.
They investigate the limitations of media arrangements and modes of
participation.“ As an international media artist, AIDUALC ZTIMHCS
explores boundaries: Limits of perception, real and imagined barriers,
liquid processes, body discourses.She explores paradigms of media
translation – as a solo artist and in collaborative transmedia projects
(dance | performing arts | music | visual art | philosophy). She uses
sculpture and projections, multidimensional drawing, (live) moving
image, AI and food – in real space, virtual and augmented reality to
explore new forms of sound, space and experience. Using LiveMovingImage
in real time on moving sculptures, she opens up the traditional video
projection to an unfolded multi-dimensional spatial projection – her
UnFoldedScreen.Exploring socio-urban fabrics, challenging hegemonial
perception, sustainability, synaesthesia, identity in virtual and real
space, re- vs. interactivity, inter- and transmediality, machine
learning, artificial intelligence are main topics of her current
artistic research. By passing through temporary stages, by discarding
and re-inventing themselves, her pieces explore oscillating stages of
being and non-being, of existence inside and outside the image. Relying
on the spectators to trigger them, many of her pieces discuss the extent
and possibilities of participation.
She is an internationally active artist and educator – won numerous
awards and nominations – is present in international public and private
