LOCATION: STEIM (Broedplaats Lely), Schipluidenlaan 12, Amsterdam
Fani Konstantinidou is a composer and sound artist and concentrates on cultural and social identities and their sonic imprints.
In her project, Sound Topographies, she uses varying raw material, from musical instruments to spoken language and from everyday sound[scape]s to computer generated sounds. Live, she creates shifting sonic textures that circulate between drones, noise, arrhythmic melodies and atonal rhythms, aiming at musical dialogs and public communication through sound. Inspired by the influence of space and time in music, she creates and recreates timelines of sonic events and parallel soundscapes.
Cindy Giron (b.1987, Boston, USA) is a composer, performer, sound artist, and educator based in The Netherlands. Intrigued by textures, composed silences, journeys, conversations, metaphors and energetic shifts, her music explores all instrumentations from solo, chamber, orchestral, electronic, all the way to merging different art forms in creating theatrical pieces and installations.
Vladimir Vlaev is a performer & composer based in The Hague. His passion about real-time digital processing of acoustic sound resulted in the development of his hybrid instrument – the HexApp. Exploring it and modifying it according to the particular space and speakers setup, Vlaev has performed with it at variety of venues such as Azimuth, Helicopter, Loos, WFS Festival (The Hague), WORM (Rotterdam), klingt gut! Symposium of Sound (Hamburg). Recently, Vlaev also performs together with Dan Gibson in a duo project dedicated to real-time DSP of acoustic instruments.
Our in-house sound art exhibition will also be open to visit during the breaks.
