In one of our biggest Sound Junctions yet, we are delighted to invite celebrated artist and composer Felicia Atkinson for a special performance with live piano, electronics and voice on our bespoke 360 degree soundsystem.
Félicia Atkinson interprets human voices which inhabit an ecology alongside and within many other things that don’t speak, in the conventional sense: landscapes, images, books, memories, ideas. The French electro-acoustic composer and visual artist makes music that animates these other possible voices in conversation with her own, collaging field recording, MIDI instrumentation, and snippets of essayistic language in both French and English. Felicia has also collaborated with artists including Chris Watson and Steven O’Malley, performed at a myriad of festivals including Berlin Atonal and Le Guess Who, and she has exhibited in many museums, galleries, and biennials.
Alongside Felicia we are proud to present Marta Domingues, a portuguese electro-acoustic composer from Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa, studying with Jaime Reis and Annette Vande Gorne.
Friday’s concert will be a special selection of student and alumni works from the University of Sheffield Sound studios.
Come and immerse yourself in sound this spring!
