Mukul is in-house sound artist at ambientTV.NET, where he collaborates across media including film, live performance and the internet. His work is concerned as much with the transmission of sound as its creation; informed by a background in science and Indian music, it plays along the borders between music and noise, rule-bound forms and chance, and technology and tradition.


Manu Luksch

Manu, is a filmmaker who works outside the frame. As practitioner and theorist in interdisciplinary media arts, Manu Luksch was artistic director of the Munich Media Lab (1995-97). In 1998, she co-founded Art Servers Unlimited, the first conference to focus on the creation of independent internet servers as both an arena, and form, of innovative net-based art. In 1999, she founded ambientTV.NET, a crucible for independent, interdisciplinary projects ranging in form from installation through documentary, dance, and theatre, to sound and video composition and live manipulation.

While exploring narrative formats which push the notion of documentary, such as the online road movie Broadbandit Highway (based on traffic surveillance cam streams), and Virtual Borders (a community film and internet-radio project that spanned five South-East Asian countries), Manu has also been elaborating collaborative, cross- platform performance/ projection pieces that draw together distant geographical and disciplinary spaces. Other recent productions include The Spy School (shown in Tel Aviv/VideoZone Festival, Hull/Speechless, Tallinn/Academy of Fine Arts, amongst other) a series of process-focussed explorations of surveillance and privacy; AV Dinners, a multi-sensory live and streaming gastronomic event, Stealth Waltz, an online sound project making us of encryption softwares (Ars Electronica) and faceless, a thriller filmed by CCTV cameras in public space in London (Tirana/onufri contemporary art show 2003).
