Eiko Ishibashi
Will Guthrie
Brunhild Ferrari
Christoph Heemann

Eiko Ishibashi is a Japanese multi-instrumentalist whose work has ranged from acclaimed singer-songwriter albums to scores for film, television, theater, and exhibitions to improvised music.
Since she launched her solo career in 2006, she has released numerous albums on labels including Drag City, Black Truffle, and Editions Mego. Her sixth full-length album „The Dream My Bones Dream,“ released in 2018, was selected as one of the best albums by many magazines. In 2020, she was commissioned to create music for art and photography exhibitions, such as The Art Gallery of New South Wales’ „Japan Supernatural“ exhibition at Sydney and the “Memory of Future” exhibition at Mandako coal mine in Kumamoto, Japan.
She branched out into film composing in 2016, creating the score for the film „Albino’s Tree“ directed by Masakazu Kaneko, which won the Best Music Award at the Cinalfama Lisbon International Film Awards. In 2019, she composed the music for the anime „Mugen no Juunin – IMMORTAL.“
The score she composed for Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s 2021 film „Drive My Car“ garnered international attention and was later arranged into an album released in the same year, incorporating sound effects from the film.
This year, she announced her new LP, titled “For McCoy” released from Black Truffle in January, and her radio residency on a global radio platform NTS Radio.

WILL GUTHRIE (Australia/France)
Will Guthrie is an Australian drummer / percussionist living in France. He plays solo using different combinations of drums, percussion, amplification and electronics, and leads the contemporary percussion / gamelan group ENSEMBLE NIST-NAH. His music has been released on labels such as Black Truffle, Editions Mego, Ipecac, Erstwhile, Clean Feed, Gaffer Records, Hasana Editions, 23five, iDEAL and his own label Antboy Music.
Guthrie first made a name for himself within the Australian jazz scene, establishing himself at a young age as a major presence by winning the Wangaratta National Jazz Awards for drums in 1997 and going on to perform with many of Australia’s most celebrated jazz musicians. In the new millennium, his work took a long detour away from the drum kit through junk electronics, extreme amplification and electro-acoustic techniques, documented on a series of solo and collaborative recordings from these years.
Alongside continuing his electro-acoustic work, in the last decade, Guthrie has returned to the drums with a vengeance, developing a series of solo works marked by a radical single-mindedness, from relentless rhythmic workouts to earth-quaking explorations of the bass frequencies of gongs and other metal percussion instruments. In the crowded world of free jazz/improv percussion, Guthrie’s work is distinguished from the delicately pointillist approach of much European improvisation by its rhythmic sophistication, unashamed virtuosity and undeniable physicality, touching on aspects of world musics from Javanese gamelan to South Indian Carnatic music.
Guthrie has released over 50 Albums, as both soloist and in collaboration, on labels such as his own Antboy Music, and also Black Truffle, Editions Mego, Gaffer Records, Ideal, Ipecac and Clean Feed. He has performed at countless venues and festivals all over the world. Regular collaborators past and present include Oren Ambarchi, James Rushford, Jean-Luc Guionnet, Mark Fell, Roscoe Mitchell, Anthony Pateras, Chulki Hong, Jérôme Noetinger, Keith Rowe, David Maranha, Ava Mendoza, the film maker Hangjun Lee and choreographer/dancer Mette Ingvartsen.
“Like most of my peers I was born, grew up, attended schools, passed exams, I failed, I loved, I enjoyed life, I worked hard sometimes;
I continue.
With Pierre Schaeffer, I dealt in my first years in Paris with the relationship between sound and image at the Service de la Recherche de l’ORTF;
German origin, I earned my living as an interpreter – translator;
Following Luc Ferrari’s teaching in matters of life, music and composition andcurrently working with him over the course of our 40 years together, I made my own Hörspiele and radio broadcasts for France Culture, KPFA-FM Berkeley, California – WDR (Cologne Radio), SWF, BR (Radio Munich) Deutschlandradio Kultur Berlin …
I continue learning.
After and since Luc left us in 2005, I am taking care of the preservation of his vast archives; founded the “Association Presque Rien – Friends of Luc Ferrari”; initiated and organize the biennial competition PRESQUE RIEN by providing artists with original sound material from Luc’s archives; edited a book with his writings and documents Musiques dans les spasmespublished by les Presses du Réel, France; try to find a translator and publisher in English language.
I composed music:
I continue.”

– Brunhild Ferrari

Brunhild Ferrari has released 2 albums on Black Truffle. Firstly, Le Piano Englouti with Jim O’Rourke and in 2022 Stürmische Ruhe, her first duo with Christoph Heemann. A legendary figure in underground music, Heemann has quietly produced a unique body of work since his beginnings with the absurdist cutups of H.N.A.S. in the mid-1980, including collaborations with Merzbow, Organum, and Nurse With Wound, the eerie psychedelia of Mirror (with Andrew Chalk), In Camera (with Timo van Lujik), and Plastic Palace People (with Jim O’Rourke), and the precise cinema pour l’oreille constructions of his solo works. Created together in Ferrari’s Parisian studio (once shared with Luc) between 2011 and 2014, Stürmische Ruhe is a single half-hour piece that folds rain and storm recordings into an intricately woven fabric of haunted electronics, unexpected edits and disorienting processing.
