Katia Isakoff is a composer producer and multi-instrumentalist 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 (see selected works) including John Foxx and Steve D’Agostino’s Evidence of Time Travel album 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 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, whilst utilising the studio as an instrument – a laboratory – for the experimentation of sound, and as a compositional tool.
Work on the pilot series, which is supported by the PRS Foundation Open Fund and Moog Music Inc. will commence at the end of May 2019. For the first in this series, Katia is joined by Suzanne Ciani: a five-time Grammy award nominated composer, electronic music pioneer, and neo-classical recording artist whose work has been featured in countless commercials, video games, and feature films. Over the course of her 40+ year career, she has released 16 solo albums, including Seven Waves, The Velocity of Love, and most recently, her comeback quadraphonic Buchla modular synth performance recording LIVE Quadraphonic.
