Dilate Ensemble is an audiovisual ensemble exploring virtual spaces. It was formed around the live internet performance of a real time under-the-kitchen-table installation by Carole Kim (S. California). Inviting Gloria Damijan (Vienna), Jon Raskin (N. California), Luisa Muhr (NY/Vienna) and Scott L. Miller (Minnesota) to join her in the pursuit of continuous explorations.

 

Carole Kim is a media artist with a focus on video projection for multimedia installation, performance and photography. She has a very hands-on, tactile approach to the materials she works with, pushing the moving image to take on optical, spatial and dimensional form. Her work has been presented in a wide range of contexts including experimental music, theater, art, dance and site-specific installation. She is grateful for an ever-expanding community of collaborators across disciplines energized by a process of exploration in the moment. 

Gloria Damijan studied piano and music pedagogy at Music University Vienna with a focus on contemporary music and free improvisation. She has studied with Manon-Lìu Winter, Burkhard Stangl, Franz Hautzinger and Ian Pace and collaborated with Stefan Fraunberger, Vinzenz Schwab, Klaus Filip, Arnold ‚Noid‘ Haberl, Christine Schörkhuber and Ye Hui. Working together with composers Tamara Friebel, Margareta Ferek-Petric, Veronika Mayer,Matthias Kranebitter. Damijan has performed in Vienna, Graz, Innsbruck, Berlin, Barcelona, Lisboa, Porto, Oslo, Hamburg and is a member of the Viennese Improvisers-Network snim. 

Minnesota composer and electronic musician Scott L. Miller is described as a creator of ‘high adventure avant garde music of the best sort’ (Classical-Modern Music Review). Best known for his electroacoustic chamber music and ecosystemic performance pieces, his music is characterized by collaborative approaches to composition, exploring performer/computer improvisation, and re-imagining ancient compositional processes through the lens of 21st century technology. He is a Professor of Music at St. Cloud State University and Director of Recordings for the Society of Electro-Acoustic Music in the U.S. (SEAMUS).
