Ángela Hoyos and Juan Hernández
Ángela Hoyos and Juan Hernández play together in a duo project called Ulrica Duo, experimenting and improvising with sound – to movement – to color synesthesia, and creating scenes in which the presence of the performers draws morphing characters. Ulrica Duo’s music is created with the computer, and performed with wearable devices, and other physical interfaces. The duo has been performing and presenting sound instalation works in galleries, exhibition spaces and theatres in Colombia, Sweden and Norway.
Between 2007 and 2009 Ángela and Juan studied the C:Art: Media Master Program in Gothenburg, Sweden. They currently work as teachers/researchers at Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, Colombia.
Professional sound artist currently working in Berlin. Her works encompass analogue and digital synthesis, field recordings and Musique Concrète techniques, often displaying her proficiency at playing a variety of instruments. She has produced a large body of soundtrack work for Radio, film and performance, and, with Cubop & Espectra Negra, as a solo artist in her own right.
Sophie Cooper is a Todmorden based musician, music teacher and a co-founder of Tor Festival, a festival that showcases psychedelic, drone, folk and noise music. Sophie has been involved in the UK’s underground music scene for the past 15 years and during this time has developed an interest in how to work traditional notions of song writing into unexpected musical scenarios. As well as composing solo music Sophie has a band called ‘The Slowest Lift’ and is currently involved in collaborations with Ireland’s United Bible Studies and French pianist Delphine Dora. She performs regularly throughout the UK and Ireland.
Sophie is a trombone player and finds the instrument incredibly intuitive to play due to it having a slide rather than fixed notes opening up a vast range of sounds. She considers the instrument to be closely related to the voice, which also has these possibilities and the combination of the two fascinating.
