Sarah Davachi (b. 1987, Calgary, Canada) holds a bachelor’s degree in philosophy from the University of Calgary, and a master’s degree in electronic music and recording media from Mills College in Oakland, California. As a composer of electronic and electroacoustic music, Davachi’s compositional projects are primarily concerned with disclosing the antiquated instruments and forgotten sonics of a bygone era in analog synthesis, with concurrent treatment of acoustic sources – particularly organ, piano, strings, and woodwinds – often involving de-familiarization through processing. Her work considers the experience of enveloped sonic dwelling, utilizing extended durations and simple harmonic structures that emphasize variations in overtone complexity and psychoacoustic artefacts.
Ellen Arkbro (b. 1990, Stockholm) is a composer and sound-artist working with intervallic harmony in just intonation. Her work includes long duration compositions as well as continuous sound environments, employing both acoustic traditional instruments as well as algorithmic sound synthesis. In 2017, Arkbro released for organ and brass on Subtext Recordings, a set of recordings of her compositions for renaissance organ, horn, trombone and microtonal tuba. Most recently, Arkbro has presented new work in concert for solo organ and electronics.
