Ilan Volkov (IL): as chief conductor of the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Volkov is a significant presence in the mainstream classical world. Yet as an improvising musician and founder of the Tectonics festival he is also deeply immersed in more avant garde currents. Tectonics Festival - held in Reykjavík, Glasgow, New York, Tel Aviv and Australia - aims to explore the hinterland between experimental and orchestral music. Each reflects Volkov’s determination to cross musical genres and keep alive the creative spirit and sense of artistic adventure that shaped modernist compositions of the last century.

Sylvie Bouteiller (B) La musique expérimentale de Sylvie oscille entre composition acousmatique (musique de support pour haut-parleurs, pièces électroacoustique) et performance (jeu de micros contact mordus à l'acide, image électrique du son analogique).
elle explore la notion de grain dans tout le spectre du son et cherche à dialoguer avec la sensation pure.

David Neaud (B) is primarily concerned with audio and more specifically with the physical properties and internal instabilities of sounds with which he makes art. Based on his low tech technology devices are sounds cobbled together with archaic mixers and primitive synthesizers. With these devices David captures vibrations to generate sound layers . The development of devices is built on a shaky technology, mastering the game in concert remains unlikely. In this, his concerts are largely open to chance and accidents, resulting in improvisation and research.
