The audiograft festival goes on the road for the first time, bringing the unique sounds and performances of international artists, Sarah Hennies, Olivia Block, and Sonic Luz (Klaus Filip and Noid) to the Arnolfini.
Sarah Hennies (b. 1979, Louisville, KY) is a composer based in Ithaca, NY whose work is concerned with a variety of musical, sociopolitical, and psychological issues including queer & trans identity, love, intimacy, psychoacoustics, and percussion.
Olivia Block is a media artist and composer. She creates experimental music for releases and concerts, site-specific multi-speaker installations, sound design for cinema and scores for orchestra and chamber groups. Her compositions include electronic textures, field recordings, amplified objects and orchestral instruments.
For Sonic Luz the priority is a maximum of flexibility and the possibility for haptic interaction on all the parts of the tone production. By moving the lamps, the tone-wheels, the light sensors on the table, or changing the discs, the composition of the sounds is manipulated, quickly and intuitively.
Audiograft is curated by the SARU (Sonic Arts Research Unit) at Oxford Brookes University.
