JUDY DUNAWAY
CRANK STURGEON
PER ÅHLUND

Judy Dunaway performs avant-garde compositions and free improvisations on
amplified latex balloons played as musical instruments. She is known
internationally as a “virtuoso of the balloon.” She plays a variety of
shapes and sizes of balloon instruments, each with it’s own special
qualities, pushing the extremes of both pitch range and artistic limits.
Her giant balloon pulsates into the depths of the subaudio, her blown
balloon wails in a high soprano and her large rubbed “tenor” balloon gives
Jimmy Hendrix’s guitar a run for the money. Her abstract music and
sounds are difficult to equate with other forms, depending upon the
perception of the individual like the images seen in fire or clouds.

Judy Dunaway has presented her works for balloons at many major venues
throughout North America and Europe, including Academy of Media Arts
Cologne (Cologne), Avant-Garde Schwaz Festival (Austria), Alternative
Museum (NYC), Bang on a Can Festival (NYC), Everson Art Museum (Syracuse),
Frau Musica Nova Festival (Cologne), Guelph Jazz Festival (Canada),
Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors (NYC), New Museum of Contemporary Art (NYC),
Performance Space 122 (NYC), Podewil (Berlin), Roulette (NYC), CEAIT
Festival (Los Angeles), Seltsame Musik Festival (Krems, Austria), SoHo
Arts Festival (NYC), STEIM (Amsterdam) and Zentrum fuer Kunst und
Medientechnologie (Karlsruhe). She has also performed on balloons with
many outstanding musicians including Roscoe Mitchell, Jennifer Walshe,
John Hollenbeck, Yasunao Tone, and the FLUX Quartet. CDs of her works for
balloons have been released on the CRI (Composers Recordings Inc) and
Innova labels, among others.

Crank Sturgeon (USA) has been active in performance, installation, and sound art since the early 1990's. A comical conceptualist, Crank blends pun with the profane to create space-defying interventions. More than just possessing a predilection for the absurd, Crank wears the goggles of the perpetual optimist, infusing his processes with a classical struggle, awash in an undertow of celebratory noise...

Per Åhlund (SWE) will perform FAN1. He resides in Stockholm, Sweden where he’s involved in several experimental music-, improvisation- and sound art-projects. His live soundscapes blur the boundaries between noise and music, stillness and hysteria, darkness and light. He creates compositions on the verge of dissolving and focuses on mood and texture rather than tonality and rhythm.

Live he use contact microphones, gadgets, loops and effects to form abstract sound environments created in the moment. His live performances are often based on old radios, voice, newly found objects and junk used as instruments.
