CENK ERGÜN is a composer and improviser who creates electronic music recordings and live performances in collaboration with choreographers, filmmakers, and other musicians. Ergün’s music has been described as “intense, haunting, ominously throbbing" (NY Times), “psychedelically meditative” (New Music Box), and as showing “conceptual rigor” (The Wire). Recent projects include Inseln, a sound installation commissioned by INM Berlin and Formare, a site-specific composition for female choir, children’s choir, harpsichords, and trombones, commissioned by the Cleveland Art Museum.
Recent releases include Sonare & Celare with JACK Quartet and Lock Me Up & Lock Me Down with Fred Frith and Sudhu Tewari. His first solo composition record, Nana, was released in 2014 on Carrier Records. Other releases include The Art of the Fluke with Alvin Curran and So Percussion’s Cage 100: Bootleg Series. (

CANSU TANRIKULU is a singing multi-media artist and composer working both as a leader and sideman. Her elastic singing, wide stylistic vocabulary, and fearless approach to melody and text-based improvisation make her an in-demand vocalist in multiple genres. As a composer, Tanrıkulu’s initial instinct is to frame topics that are hard to imagine as musical entities. Her piece for large ensemble based on actual questions that rape survivors were pressured to answer about their experience has particularly caught attention and was featured on an album by Planet 9, a compositional project on women’s rights directed by Julia Hülsmann and supported by the Universitat der Künste Berlin.

NICK DUNSTON is a composer, improviser, instrumentalist, and “indispensable player on the New York avant-garde" (New York Times). In 2019 he was awarded the Van Lier Fellowship by Roulette Intermedium, which supported the world premieres of The Floor is Lava! (double bass quintet), and La Operación (double saxophone trio with soprano voice). Also in 2019 he released his debut album Atlantic Extraction for double bass, drums, electric guitar, flute, and violin. From 2016-2019, he was a monthly contributor to Hot House Jazz Magazine. (
