<0204> <dim>

Iver Kim, born in South Korea in 1998 is a multidisciplinary artist studying Music and Technology at HKU. 
Kim's emotional composition, <0204> is an homage to her grandmother, who unfortunately passed away in her home country shortly after the artist arrived here in the Netherlands. Kim mourned her in sound, utilizing recordings from the funeral event, exploring textures and silence to create a gutting sorrow. the piece is a trajectory, an attempt to find closure, a try for immense emotion to resolve into peace.
Her other piece, <dim> samples "Polovtsian Dances" from Alexander Borodin's opera Prince Igor. This piece has been re-arranged for the WFS system.

"A Terra a quem a trabalha!"

ARDEMAR, born in Portugal in 1999, is a musician and creative coder studying Music and Technology at HKU.
Based on a song of a Portuguese traditional genre of collective singing “cante alentejano”, titled “Reforma Agrária” the artist tries to expand the original songs meaning and sentiment, as the original song was created as a lament, as the cries of “The land to those who work in it!” and “Agricultural reform now!” were never met, as reactionaries were able to pressure corrupt politicians to crush the action taken by poor Portuguese farmers with armed police shortly after the fascist dictatorship that oppressed Portuguese workers came to an end in 1974.
