Tuesday 7 December 2021, 7.30pm
Pleased to welcome Teresa Cos, Julia E Dyck and Caroline Profanter after the release of their 'Week Nine' album on our TakuRoku label earlier this year.
The trio will perform on a loose score exchanging composed and improvised fragments, as they appear from solo and collective outputs. They will work with analog and digital electronics, layered rhythmical structures, spatialisation, field-recording, live radio and electro-magnetic interference.
Lia Mazzari will play a solo set. The night will end in a group improvisation.
Teresa Cos is an artist exploring the processes of memory and repetition underlying history, society and human psychology, similarly to those inherent to sound and image composition. Her interdisciplinary practice encompasses film, video and sound installation, visual scoring, experimental music composition and performance. Teresa has presented and performed her work in various international contexts including: Cafè Oto, 3rd Industrial Art Biennial, Argos Centre for Audiovisual Arts, WIELS Contemporary Art Centre, Casino Luxembourg, bb15, Q-O2, Fondazione Baruchello, Kanal-Centre Pompidou, The Mac - Metropolitan Arts Centre Belfast, Les Ateliers Claus, Centrale Fies, Mostyn Gallery and the 14th Venice International Architecture Biennial. She has released work on Takuroku and Umland Editions/Q-2 and self-releases her ever growing Archive of Loops. Teresa has taken part in several international residency programmes, including WIELS, Jan Van Eyck Academy, Visio-European Programme on Artists’ Moving Images and the Botín Foundation workshop with Tacita Dean.
Julia E Dyck's relational and speculative practice explores the possible connections between the body, consciousness, technology and the environment through performance, composition, installation and transmission. Julia often works collaboratively and is a member of the ffiles radio collective. Her work has been presented at the Palais des Beaux-Arts de Paris, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Darling Foundry, Prague Headphone Festival, Q-O2, MaerzMusik, Galerie Art et Essai, and has been released with TakuRoku, Umland Editions/Q-2, Kapha Selections, Crash Symbols, Unheard Records, Higher Records & Bastard Girl Utopia.
Caroline Profanter works in the fields of electroacoustic and acousmatic music as a composer and performer. She creates imaginary soundscapes and sonic narratives on the perceptional threshold of familiarity; using recorded sounds and noises taken from the context of the everyday, interweaved with electronically generated sound material often including feedback-systems and amplified objects, as well as multichannel speaker configurations. She collaborates frequently with other musicians and artists, and creates sound design for film and radio. She has performed in festivals such as Espace du Son, Wien Modern, Plage Sonore Le Havre, Sound Spaces, Transart Festival, The Acousmatic Project, Nuit Blanche Brussels, Semaine du Son, among others. She has released records on les albums claus, bb15, Takuroku and Iki Gaga. Caroline is part of the team of Q-O2 workspace for experimental music and sound art in Brussels.
Lia Mazzari’s work is often collaborative engaging new audiences through encounters with art in non-conventional spaces. She creates live and recorded events that embrace the broader sense of sound in space. This fluid relationship with her immediate environment, towards a sonic activism through the means of performance, intervention, installation and developing her own technique with cello, sometimes whips , and live-sound-transmission technologies form the crux of her practice. She is the founder of Silver Road, an experimental performance space housed in a derelict water tank in South-East London, later devoted to time-based art practices in the urbanscape. She performed amongst others with Tarek Atoui, Ashley Paul, Takahiro Kawaguchi, Ilan Volkov, Christof Migone, Angharad Davies, Sholto Dobie and Tom White.
