Yiru Chen (new media / video installation artist)
Dave Bergeron is enrolled in the new Film and Media Arts MFA at the University of Windsor. With a practice that is rooted in audio, David creates pieces that span from interactive to orchestral. His search for “meaningful music” has led him to study different genres of music and interactive technologies as a composer, performer, and programmer.
Andrew Bradt is a multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer who is currently exploring jazz saxophone, Ableton Live, and electroacoustic music. In January, he released two singles, “Sun/Will” under the moniker Hysterical Light, which can be heard at http://hystericallight.bandcamp.com.
Yiru Chen was born in Shenzhen, China. She is currently working towards her MFA in Film and Media at the University of Windsor. Yiru is a new media artist mainly working with video mapping and interactive techniques to create video installation. Currently, she is interested in how to engage audiences in such a manner that they become co-creators and gain an understanding or personal connection through interacting with a piece of art.
Sarah Kelly is currently based in Windsor, Ontario, where she is pursuing an MFA in Film and Media. In addition to producing both visual and sonic work, she performs music as a solo artist under the name “Tigerwing”. The music of Tigerwing belongs to the realm of Electronic Pop, blending cinematic sonics alongside visual expressions of the same grandeur. Using the human voice with technology to create otherworldly soundscapes, the theme of otherness and vulnerability is explored in her video work and live performances. Whether on stage or on screen, this identity assumes a contemporary gothic aesthetic, thriving in the darkness where melodrama meets melody.
Martin Schiller is a composer, musician and producer from Windsor, Ontario. He has been writing and performing as bassist of the band What Seas, What Shores for over 10 years, and continues to create electronica and progressive jazz-rock with his own projects; Martian Scholar and The Greedy Echoes. Martin studied music at the University of Windsor and received his Bachelor of Arts degree in 2014.
