BLEVIN BLECTUM is an electronic musician and multimedia composer, celebrated as an "icon of deviant and cerebral electronic music."
Blectum studied the violin during her youth. At Oberlin College she began making electronic music at the WOBC-FM studios. At Mills College, she partnered with Kevin Blechdom to form performance art / vocals, laptops and samplers / electronica duo Blectum from Blechdom. In 2001, Blectum from Blechdom won an Award of Distinction for digital music at the Prix Ars Electronica.
She graduated with a PhD in Computer Music and Multimedia from Brown University's Multimedia and Electronic Music Experiments (MEME) department in May 2014. While at Brown she created sound and music for several of playwright Theo Goodell's works. In 2011 she was artist-in-residence at WORM, a Rotterdam-based institute for avant garde music and art. Her fifth solo LP/CD, Emblem Album, was released on Aagoo records on December 5, 2013.
ALEXANDER DUPUIS uses sound, light, and movement to reveal previously imperceptible or impossible spaces. His work draws on the fields of experimental music/film/animation, particularly those threads that develop alternative notions of spacetime. Real-time animations, cross-modal translations, and feedback feature prominently in his approach, which manifests in live performances as well as fixed-media pieces. He performs as a guitarist, as well as with instruments of his own design, and has played in various guises across the United States, Canada, and Europe. He received his MA in Digital Musics from Dartmouth College in 2012, and is currently pursuing a PhD in the MEME program at Brown University.
