Engin Dağlık is a musician who essentially explores the potential of space in his work, by combining different production tools and techniques. He is mostly interested in producing work that aim to recreate and reshape the perception of space in order to make the audience reimagine the site transformed by the sound. Besides designing and producing works for concert, gallery and public spaces; he also performs as a percussionist with/without live electronics.

Barbara Nerness is many things, but foremost an artist, researcher, and composer. Currently, she is working toward a PhD at the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford University. She holds a Masters in Music, Science, and Technology from Stanford and a BA in Mathematics from UC Berkeley. Her research lies at the intersection of neuroscience, improvisation, and interface design. Recent performances and exhibitions have taken place at BAM in NY, ZKM in Karlsruhe, and C4NM in San Francisco, among many others.

Stephanie Sherriff is an interdisciplinary artist, composer, and performer currently based in San Francisco, California. Their work with sound, video, and physical phenomena is ephemeral in nature and culminates as time-based installations and performances that deconstruct fragments of daily life through experimental processes. They received a BA from San Francisco State University in 2014 and an MFA in Art Practice from Stanford University in 2019. Their work has been featured both nationally and internationally at creative centers such as the Institute for Research Coordination in Acoustics/Music (IRCAM), the Sfendoni Theater, the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), O. Festival, Gray Area, The Lab, Artists Television Access (ATA), and the Center for New Music (C4NM).

Alkimiya Transfer (Barbara Nerness and Stephanie Sherriff) is an ambient noise duo that formed out of shared interests in policed systems and surveillance in January 2019. Their electroacoustic compositions incorporate found objects, field recordings, archival media, custom interfaces, multichannel speaker systems, and experimental engagement with traditional instruments. The duo’s work has been featured in-person and virtually at creative venues such as The Lab, Gray Area, Adobe Books, KZSU, the Center for New Music, CalArts, and Mills College.
