Atau Tanaka was born in Tokyo, and was raised in the U.S. He came up in Silicon Valley in the 90's making music from virtual reality technology. He moved to Paris in 1992 and played music festivals like Sonar, Musique Action and 38eme Rugissants, and media arts festivals DEAF, and Ars Electronica. He founded Sensorband with Zbigniew Karkowski and Edwin van der Heide, mythic for their physical performances and monumental instruments.
Richard Lerman, works in Music, Film, Installations, Performance, and Video. He often constructs functional microphones from diverse materials, and then composes using these transducers to amplify and pick-up sounds of the environment. These site-specific sound pieces allow the sonic flavor of each material to emerge. They also develop strong connections between the recording locations and the installations in which they are used. Recent works combine sounds from his self-built microphones with computer and MIDI techniques.
Sounding like an archaic echo, If, Bwana could be the title of a Bob Hope-Bing Crosby vehicle that never got made. A little investigation reveals it as the oddly worded cover for Al Margolis, who is perhaps better known as a tireless activist in the 1980s American cassette underground through his cassette label Sound Of Pig Music in the 1980s, and, later, as the co-founder of experimental music label Pogus Productions. If, Bwana has been active since 1984, making music that has swung between fairly spontaneous studio constructions and more process-oriented composition.
