“Hitsujigusa Nymphaea”
by Gilbert Nouno

This piece is a new composition for live electronics and double-bass by Gilbert Nouno, which premieres during the Transplant shows. It is inspired by a piece created by Gilbert in 2002 at the Woodstockhausen Festival (Santa Cruz, CA) and will be complemented by live visuals from
Carole Kim.

Gilbert Nouno
Born in 1970, he studied guitar and double bass while pursuing an engineering degree. He then became engaged in the performance of classical music, jazz and improvisation. From this time, too, begins his interest in the cross-relationships of music, science, and technology, which led to an association with Ircam. He is currently a musical Assistant with Ircam, collaborating with composers in realizing works involving the use of computer and other recent technologies. Among these composers are Michael Obst, Kaija Saariaho, Jose-Luis Campana, Philippe Schoeller, Michael Jarrell, Sandeep Bhagwati, Brian Ferneyhough, Jonathan Harvey and the saxophonist Steve Coleman.

Carole Kim
The dialogue between sound and image has been an ongoing passionate pursuit for Carole Kim to address her interest in improvisation and experiential exchange. She's engaged in the challenge of making video a more plastic, responsive-in-the-moment medium and has developed modular visual apparati using both live mix programs and hands-on jerry-rigged live-feed methods.
