Mabe Fratti is an experimental cellist and composer. Originally from Guatemala, Fratti is now based in Mexico City. She uses cello, voice and synthesizers to present sound in the form of installation, composition & free improvisation. Mabe’s music takes us to sensible sounding boards: through a hypnotic and captivating performance, she sews contemporary elements like shoegaze and dream pop with ancestral influences that go from Gregorian chants to Sephardi music, transforming them in ingredients of a potent sonic ritual that causes a profound emotional impact.

Thomas Arbor (ex I.Ryoko) is a composer, producer and audio engineer with an interest in progressive politics. Thomas runs Sonorous Circle, an Oceanian outlet for adventurous music, art and communities.

Alistair is a widely respected player, composer, and researcher of ngā taonga puoro with a performance background that enables him to provide a sensitivity that suits the intimate nature of these remarkable instruments. Alistair Fraser has been researching, making, performing and composing with ngā taonga pūoro since 1999 and in his time has worked in a diverse range of art forms with Aotearoa’s top arts practitioners.

Clovis McEvoy is an award-winning composer, sound artist and researcher.
He specialises in creating experiential installations for virtual reality, mixed media and musical works for instruments and electronics. His works have been performed in America, France, England, Italy, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Portugal and Switzerland.
​An active researcher, Clovis has presented papers on audio-visual relationships, virtual music and compositional practice at conferences in Japan, Italy and New Zealand.

Richard Francis uses field recordings, modular synthesizer and computer to compose and improvise sound works. He has released solo and collaborative albums on a number of labels including Korm Plastics (NL), Monochrome Vision (RU), Aufabwegen (DE), Last Visible Dog (USA) and his own record label CMR (NZ). Recent published collaborative CDs have been with Bruce Russell (NZ), Mattin (ES), Jason Kahn (USA) and Francisco Lopez (ES).

Warren Maxwell (Ngāi Tūhoe, Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngai Te Rangi, Ngai Te Riu, Ngati Whare, Ngati Rakaipaaka, Ngai Te Rangi) has been a professional working musician and composer for the better part of two decades. He has composed for film and television and appeared at numerous festivals internationally, including Celtic Connections, WOMAD NZ, and the Byron Bay Blues, Woodford Folk, Big Chill and Roskilde Festivals. Warren is currently a Senior Lecturer at Massey University where he teaches composition and performance. In 2016 was inducted into the Institute’s prestigious ‘Hall of Fame’.
