"Like eating an imaginary apple, our hybrid human like bodies are formed to constantly digesting information, permanently inputing and outputting knowledge. We no longer have one mouth to eat, but thousand virtual nurturing holes, feeding us with raw particles of data. Can the unprocessed become an opportunity for new forms of life? A group of digital artists and musicians are gathered to present their observations on the digital body as a mean to cope with unprocessed memories. Collaborating with 'Panacea' exhibition project, the event elaborates those issues through their audiovisual works and live music/dance performances."

I was invited to deliver a lecture and a practical workshop to a group of practitioners working in digital music. During the lecture, the participants learnt about histories of sound in art, and created group compositions and performances, including site-specific installations and experimental performance happenings.
I am presenting a paper/audiovisual essay on sound in the visual arts on 8th November 2015.

Programme Note: Discovered at the edge of the world (North of Iceland), this analogue radio signal has become a living memory of the remote place where it was initially recorded. It portrays the location’s continuous effort to remain connected to the rest of the world using the notion of live sound. The participants are invited to explore this signal, utilise its compositional potential, and using the microtonal qualities provided by the installation’s dial, reconnect to the possible distant place where the signal was first captured.

Formed during the NMI (newmusicincubator.com) project in 2014, the New Sound Collective consists of 3 professional composers, performers and sound artists - Jan Liljekvist, Alexandra Nilsson and Sandra Kazlauskaite. Musically, the trio aim to transform the sounds produced by the instruments they play towards new undiscovered objects, this way exploring the possibilities of sonic instrumentation, harmony, non-harmony, spatiality of sound and beyond. The performances are improvisation based and consist of live instrument manipulation (violin, trumpet, keys), electronics, sound objects, and projection.
Audiovisual performance, Thursday 30th October 2014, GLEAM, University of Glasgow
I am presenting one of my pieces (‘Taped Reality’) in a form of a live audiovisual performance. The artwork consists of analogue processing of recorded cassette tapes, digital manipulation, synthesised soundscapes and a real-time visual representation of the sounds produced.
