Haroon Mirza creates immersive sculptures, performances and installations that explore awareness of his own experience. He describes himself as a composer, manipulating electricity, a living, invisible and volatile natural phenomenon. His work tests the interaction and friction between sound and light waves and electrical current. An advocate of interference, Mirza creates situations in which he purposely crosses electricity wires and asks us to reconsider the perceptive distinctions between noise, sound and music, questioning the categorization of cultural forms. He has been exhibiting individually all over the world.

Also based in London, Jack Jelfs has released music under various pseudonyms and has performed or exhibited at venues such as Tate Modern, the Barbican, Serpentine Gallery, FACT (Liverpool), CCCB (Barcelona), iMal (Brussels) and the National Museum of Taiwan Fine Arts (Taichung). In 2018, together with Haroon Mirza, he won the CERN COLLIDE International Award.
