For this Corpora Aliena event, the Russian artists Pavel and Elvira Zhagun will be making a rare visit to London, and will give a live performance of ‘Digitalizm’, an A/V generative acousmatic composition that uses custom-made generative computer programme. This is a rare opportunity to see two of the pioneers of the Moscow experimental music, poetry and video art scenes.
Also included in the programme are:
Avsluta (Lucie Stepankova), whose new composition ‘Ripple’ was produced utilising metallic instruments and objects as the main sound source. This work is a contemplation on the sonic potentiality of these materials and objects and their extended sonorities arising from their interaction with human body and digital technology.
Kate Carr will create A performance featuring field recordings, objects, and instruments.
Bernhard Living will be performing a live version of his ‘Composition 2019/06’, which is a continuation of his explorations with tonality – interference patterns – and phases shifting.
In addition to the music performances, there will be a screening of two experimental videos by the artist Rebecca Salvadori. The videos are ‘Exercise A and ‘Exercise B’, which Salvador describes as being synchronized and non-synchronized exercises of arrhythmic empathy.
The Corpora Aliena Eclectic Electronic concert is an exciting opportunity to see and hear some of the leading international musicians and artists who are an important part of the contemporary experimental arts and music scene.
Corpora Aliena is curated by Dasha Birukova and Bernhard Living
