Brian Eno

<p>Renowned equally for his production work and his music, Brian Eno is the godfather of ambient music and immersive sound. For the Hexadome exhibition, Brian will be making a piece in partnership with <a href="http://www.peterchilvers.com/">Peter Chilvers</a> that comprises of a new ‘generative visual graphic design module’ - this will be showcased for the first time in Berlin.</p> <p><br> Example Work: <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1RNt-7mkS4Q">Light Objects</a>&nbsp;</p>

Tarik Barri & Thom Yorke

<p>Tarik Barri is well known for his visual work for Radiohead, but he is also a prominent figure in architecture, electronic music and sound art. For the Hexadome, Tarik will be further developing his <a href="http://tarikbarri.nl/projects/versum">'Versum' 3d world project </a>in collaboration with Thom Yorke of Radiohead. Tarik will perform the piece solo, but the installation work will be created and developed at the ZKM in Karlsruhe with Thom in February 2017.</p> <p><a href="https://vimeo.com/20347210">Example Video</a></p>

Holly Herndon & Mathew Dryhurst

<p>Holly and her partner Mat are regulars in the world of experimental music and visuals and the intersection with the more traditional art world. Holly and Mat will be using a 4 piece vocal ensemble to create their installation. They will first do a live performance and create the installation work using a neural network taking the sounds and recordings from vocal ensemble and crowd participation during the live show. The neural network will then take the elements of the live show to create a very unique and random piece.</p> <p><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_3mCDJ_iWc">Example video</a></p>

Frank Bretschneider & Pierce Warnecke

<p>Pierce and Frank have years of experience between them in experimental sound and visuals and the intersection of where these mediums meet. We expect a piece that continues in this tradition with precise and complex sound design while showcasing the various relationships that image and sound can have together.</p> <p><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tB50GkEPHbs">Example Video</a></p>
