Danish pianist Søren Kjærgaard is currently working on an artistic research project that looks into solo performance as an expressive format for multi-layered and multi-directional improvisation. As a pianist and improviser Søren Kjærgaard is engaged in how one can open a field of possibilities within the natural limitations of the solo format and the core relation: Player – Piano.
His work includes audio-visual documentation, experimenting with different ways of listening and looking (back) into the creative process in an attempt to open up new ways of creating dynamic circuits in the artistic practice.
Chris Brown, composer, pianist, and electronic musician, creates music for acoustic instruments with interactive electronics, for computer networks, and for improvising ensembles.

Recordings of his music are available on New World, Tzadik, Pogus, Intakt, Rastascan, Ecstatic Peace, Red Toucan, SIRR, Leo, and Artifact labels.
