KRK, founded in 2005, has devoted itself to a muscular integration of electronic and acoustic sonic worlds, incorporating technology from catgut and horsehair to infrared sensing and concatenative synthesis.  Their concise, spontaneous compositions unite formal tautness with a fierce yet controlled energy, melding real-time musique concrete with virtuosic extended technique to open up undiscovered spaces in electro-acoustic performance. With more than 60 concerts in over a dozen countries to their credit, KRK continues to build on their experience.

Thomas Lehn [DE] + Andrew Raffo Dewar [US]

Thomas Lehn
Born in Fröndenberg (Germany) in 1958
The electronic equipment he uses consists of analogue synthesizers of the late 1960s, and since 1994 in particular the EMS Synthi A. Besides the substantial sound qualities of its analogue synthesis, the facilities of this modular instrument - for example to modify electronic sounds very directly as well as to combine and to control several parameters of the sound synthesis at the same time - allows him to spontaneously act in close contact with the various structural degrees of the musical process. Numerous appearances at major international festivals of contemporary musics and concerts tours

Andrew Raffo Dewar (b.1975 Rosario, Argentina) is composer, soprano saxophonist, and arts organizer. Since 1995, he has been active in the music communities of Minneapolis, New Orleans, the San Francisco Bay Area, New York City, and Tuscaloosa, Alabama. His work has been performed throughout North America, Southeast Asia and Europe, and he has studied and performed with avant-garde jazz legends Steve Lacy, Anthony Braxton, Bill Dixon, and experimental music composer Alvin Lucier. Recordings of Dewar's compositions are available on the Porter Records, Striking Mechanism, dEN Records, and Rastascan Records labels, and he also appears on a number of recordings by Anthony Braxton and with the Bill Dixon Orchestra.
