Hello new year. Vrooom kicks off this Thursday evening with artists that move within the realm of textured Improv, Noise, New Music, and Sound Art.
LEILA BORDREUIL (fr)
Leila is a Brooklyn based cellist and composer from Aix-en-Provence, France. She works in the realm of Noise, Improvisation, New Music and Sound-art. Her cello playing is often improvised, and mainly focuses on texture variations and collages of phantom overtones and pitched utterances. Her vocabulary is that of extended techniques, preparations, and imaginative amplification methods, using her instrument as an abstract resonant body to challenge conventional cello practice. Her composed works draw from a similar textured musical aesthetic, but also focus on the relationship between sound and space. In her site-specific electro-acoustic compositions, architecture is the foundation of the piece and musicality arises from an organized spacialization of sound.
PETRA DUBACH & MARIO VAN HORRIK (nl)
Mario and Petra have worked together as an artistic duo Since 1983. The inception was the notion that movement and sound are identical; without movement (vibration) nothing can be heard. This idea, and the temporary character of sound, extends through their installations, site-specific works in progress, performances and concerts. The duo also use new media and technology, often realized especially for their projects. Their recent projects dealt with communication, formal translations, and (mis)understanding. In their research project WAVES, the duo investigates the use of movement feedback to create installations and concerts. Next to being the co-founders / members of the multimedia group Antarctica, Mario was also a member of the renowned Maciunas Ensemble with the late Paul Panhuijsen, Jan van Riet, and Leon van Noorden.
ANNA MIKHAILOVA aka BaKaRuNa (ru/nl)
