>>> ÑDJ Angel & Demon are GORDON ASHWORTH and VICKY LANGAN currently in residency at Zaratan. Vicky Langan is an Irish artist whose practice operates across several often overlapping fields, chiefly sound, performance, and film. Through simple materials, magnetic tape, and her own body, she layers physical gestures and scraps of rough sound to create intensely personal imaginary landscapes. In opening herself emotionally, she creates warm yet discomforting rituals that at once embrace the viewer and remain resolutely private, exploring the limits of what can be shared between people and what must remain mysterious. Her decade-long filmmaking partnership with filmmaker and critic Maximilian Le Cain has resulted in screenings and retrospectives of their work having been shown throughout the world and their work is part of the Arts Council of Ireland’s permanent collection.
Gordon Ashworth is an American musician and visual artist whose primary field is experimental composition for string instruments, field recordings and magnetic tape. He has been involved in the experimental music & harsh noise undergrounds since 2002, and has released dozens of harsh noise, drone, folk and musique concrete recordings under the names Concern, Oscillating Innards, CAEN, and in more recent years, his given name. His live performances as a solo musician focus on live cassette tape and speaker-cone manipulation of string instruments and field recordings, creating rich textures from contrasting elements of intimate, indoor acoustic sounds with broader, anonymous social environments. Ashworth is also the founder of the archival record label Olvido Records, and since 2019, he has been a co-owner of the Mississippi Records label. 
The cycle Ñ-DJ*s is now back to the patio of Zaratan, to be enjoyed with a glass of red wine. It appears as a practice of shared musical exploration: Zaratan invites artists from all areas whose work is somehow related to music, with no pretensions or previous performances as Djs. This “not-dj's” select the sound using any type of mechanical/digital device (k7's of mp3's readers, smartphones, PDAs, radios, etc.) than those used by "career djs".
