Krista Caballero
Krista Caballero (USA) is an interdisciplinary artist exploring issues of agency, survival, and environmental change in a more-than-human world.

Her work has been presented across the United States as well as internationally in exhibitions and festivals such as the 2014 International Symposium on Electronic Art in Dubai, “Paradoxes in Video” at Mohsen Gallery in Tehran, and the 2013 Balance-Unbalance International Festival in Queensland, Australia.

Frank Ekeberg
Frank Ekeberg (Norway) is an artist and researcher primarily concerned with the sonic arts. His work explores issues of ecology, time, space and change. He uses almost exclusively natural source material, and spatial aspects of the sounds and the listening environment are integrated as essential elements of the work. Ekeberg has composed and designed sound for concert performance, dance, film, theater, radio plays and multimedia installations, and has earned several international commissions and awards. His work has been presented in festivals, exhibitions and concert series in more than 30 countries around the world, and can be found in numerous public and private collections, museums and libraries. Ekeberg received his MFA in electronic music from Mills College in Oakland, California, where he studied composition with Pauline Oliveros and Alvin Curran, and his PhD in electroacoustic music composition from City University in London, UK, under Denis Smalley's and Simon Emmerson's tutelage. Frank Ekeberg alternates his time between Trondheim, Norway, and Scottsdale, Arizona, where he works as a freelancer and spends most of his time on art and related research. Visit Frank Ekeberg's website.
