Grid (N)
Emanuele Poliani, a.k.a. Grid (N) is a noise experimental artist based in Berlin as well as a researcher in quantum physics. The main idea behind all his audio visual performances is to transform the workflow of music creation in an experimental playground. A long lasting self limiting creative rule, an “oblique strategy” which characterized his last production, is the concept of “instant music”: no plans, no laptop and total improvisation. Starting from this rule, many different concepts for guiding the performances can be created. He will bring at IKLECTICK his main project inspired by Aldous Huxley’s reducing valve theory. According to this theory, every individual is a victim of the linguistic tradition which creates a grid in everybody’s mind in order to reduce the awareness belonging to Mind at Large. Musically, this is in contradiction with the usual structure of magical/hypnotic/mystical music where repetitive sounds and rhythms are the main building block.This ambitious project aims to tune the audience to bypass the reducing valve by even destroying the squared (into the grid) way to compose music.

Jilliene Sellner
Jilliene Sellner (aka Canyella or Harbour Me) is a UK based Canadian sonic artist and curator. She has performed and had installations in the UK, Belgium, Germany, Austria and Switzerland and is currently producing her first release as Harbour Me – a compilation of multichannel phonographic works. Sellner’s work considers the irrevocably entwined relationship between colonialism, the environment and culture and emphasises the interconnections between gender, race, utility, exploitation, defense, leisure and environmental conservation. Her practice sites itself between collaborative distributed listening, live networked performance and soundscape composition.  A PhD researcher at Goldsmiths/Sussex and leads a co creating project called ‘Heya’ with female experimental sound artists and musicians in the Middle East, Sellner is a regular Framework Radio guest producer with episodes themed around gender and decolonialism in phonography which feature women from locations such as Brazil, Egypt and India. The most recent episode for Framework, Women in the Field (Jan 2020) reflects on gender and the act of field recording and includes original contributions from female field recordists, including pioneer, Hildegard Westercamp.

Ommatidia
The visualization code takes an image from a single lens webcam, and processes it to emulate the ommatidia. Arranged in a hexagonal grid, which is an optimal packing reached by evolution, each cell has a wide angle, with overlapping edges repeating parts of the image and enhancing the drama of moving objects. The colour of the cells are modified according to the volume levels of three frequency bands of audio (bass, mids, treble). Over time the size of the cells are modulated, zooming disconcertingly.
