Katia Isakoff is a composer and multi-instrumentalist music producer whose performances and productions first appeared in the Add N To (X) album Loud Like Nature (Mute Records).  She has since collaborated on numerous albums and projects including John Foxx and Steve D’Agostino’s Evidence of Time Travel which was composed and produced at her London studio. Having contributed synths and co-mixed EOTT, she went on to join them for a live concert performance at Electri_City Conference Dusseldorf, adding Moog Theremini and synths to the sonic architecture of this ever evolving and expansive Karborn graphic novel, which premiered with a live performance at the British Film Institute UK and Sonic Acts Festival, Amsterdam.  She has since spent much of her time between London and Berlin working on her forthcoming solo album She’s Not Here.

In March 2019, Katia launched !N_K o L //\\ B a new and innovative composer producer series bringing together pioneering, established and emerging composer producers to collaborate in various studios and pop-up locations. Each series sees a new guest pioneer and group joining her; together, they embark on the journey of making an album through improvisation and exploration of the studio as an instrument. The mission: to build a global network through musical collaborations – one album and city at a time.

MAKING WAVES WITH SUZANNE CIANI IN FOUR MOVEMENTS 

Isakoff pulled off quite a coup attracting the pioneering Buchla maestro Suzanne Ciani to the project. The first collaboration, “Making Waves With Suzanne Ciani”, was presented in space-filling quadraphonic sound for the invited audience at British Grove Studios.

The first IN_KoLAB series was hosted in July, 2019 by British Grove Studios. The group spent two days recording and filming what would become a four movement piece called IN_KoLAB Making Waves with Suzanne Ciani.  In December 2019, the group returned to British Grove Studios for an intimate and immersive playback launch in quadraphonic. The album and accompanying short will be released in 2020 and plans are in motion for the next series.
