Dinzu Artefacts:

"In February 2023, longtime friends Michelle Lou and Stefan Maier met for a week-long residency at UC San Diego, where Lou is a faculty member. With Lou on multi-channel computer synthesis and Maier on modular synthesis, the resulting long-form improvisation was recorded live in 28-channels and mixed down to stereo with minimal editing.

Lou's constantly shifting cloud of spectral densities and angular textures are juxtaposed by Maier's throbbing drones and pointillistic interjections. Unremitting and inexorable, constantly transforming sound passes through multiple states, reaching thresholds of intensity only to change phase yet again. In this live recording, Lou and Maier explore the material excess of sound, endlessly proliferating, in a state of unruly becoming.

Michelle Lou composes mainly in the realm of electro-acoustic music, both in hardware and in computer based forms. She has created large scale sound installations which are often performative and collaborative. She also performs and improvises on acoustic and electric bass, electric guitar, and on laptop and various electronics. Her work often situates the act of listening as a material in and of itself and how one's sense of time can be prismatically shattered within a listening event.

Stefan Maier is an artist and composer from Vancouver, Canada (unceded Coast Salish territory). His installations, performances, writings, and compositions examine emergent and historical sound technologies as tools for speculation. Highlighting material instability and dynamic emergence, his work explores the chaotic flows of sonic matter through sound systems, instruments, software, and bodies, to uncover alternate histories, modes of listening, and authorship possible within specific technologically-mediated situations."
