About The Featured Artist:
Kai Riedl is a musical collaborationist who seeks new approaches to
cultural diplomacy through art, embracing geographic and creative
constraints while connecting audiences and performers through
Riedl's pioneering abstract rock music group Macha gained
international acclaim for its stylized multiculturalism, which
integrated Indonesian music styles and instruments. Riedl appears on
many recordings by Athens bands, including the "supergroup" Tuatara
(with members of R.E.M and the famed poet Coleman Barks). He also
coordinates visits and performs with a variety of international
musicians -- including distinguished artists from India and Indonesia
-- at the University of Georgia.
Riedl recorded and produced Javasounds, a twelve-volume series of
traditional Indonesian music, over the course of six years and
multiple trips to western and central Java, Indonesia. This monumental
work became the basis for "Our New Silence," through which Riedl and a
collection of diverse local musicians built upon portions of the
multi-track recordings to produce new works.
Riedl has received two research grants from the Center for Humanities
and Arts at the University of Georgia, as well as a Project
Development Grant from Ideas for Creative Exploration (ICE), an
interdisciplinary initiative for advanced research in the arts.

project Electrophoria at Mazarine Records.
