ifitisn’t is about the interruptive noise that exists between transmission and the intended reception of the message, the fragments of concrete experience that interrupt hegemony. it is the mapping of emotional and political territories. ifitisn’t is cartographer and rhetoricican.

Robinson: Modular electronics, double-bass, guitars, sonic sundries. Robinson creates music in art galleries. he creates improvised electronic music for animated films and art projects too. With a background in a jazz-improv duo, Robinson works with his partner in ifitisn’t. His influences are from Henri Pousseur to Charlie Haden, Luc Ferrari to Roger Smith.

Maria Kalnars

Maria Kalnars: Maria is a musician and visual artist. She is plays in the electro-acoustic duo ifitisn’t, along with Robinson. Maria also has a hand in both improvised music, jazz and free jazz. Being the “acoustic” part of ifitisn’t, Maria uses voice, piano, percussives and found objects to great effect. The outcome is to make sounds that move the listener into a relaxed space. An enticing, intriguing and somewhat exciting space.

Create. Play.
