Four international artists present an eclectic evening of acoustic and electronic music and art songs. A key member of the Israeli art and music scene Maya Dunietz and electronic musician Grundik Kasyasky will be premiering a duet for piano/voice and feedback synthesizer, an adventurous post-genre electroacoustic music, simultaneously wild and gentle. Acclaimed Welsh violinist Angharad Davies will be playing a solo set, a mesmerizing exercise in extreme concentration and superpower technique. Sasha Elina will be singing a few art songs; her voice is a thing of rare and fragile beauty. A very special event that shouldn’t be missed!
MAYA DUNIETZ (1981) is a pianist, composer, creator of sculptures, installations and performances, combining singing, instrumentation and recording techniques with digital technologies and a varied array of materials. She merges different art fields into a single malleable mass. Her works are influenced by their spatial context; Dunietz has performed as soloist, composer and ensemble member with Meitar Ensemble, Saar Berger (Ensemble Modern), Bat Kol Choir, Hyperion Ensemble, Solistensemble Kaleidoskop, and others. Her works have been shown in institutions such as Centre Pompidou, Palais de Tokyo, Bemis Center of Contemporary Art, Foundation Cartier, Arnolfini Gallery, Reykjavik Arts Festival and many more.
GRUNDIK KASYANSKY is an electronic musician and sound artist, based in London. He works with sound synthesis and feedback, exploring self-oscillation, mutation and modulation. Since 2006 he’s been developing a customised setup – a feedback/analogue synthesis system. Using this setup, he constructs adaptive, interactive environments that he can engage with and learn from durationally. A dialogue plays important role in Grundik’s practice. He collaborates with musicians, dancers, fine artists and filmmakers around the world across different media. His recent projects include free jazz/techno duo теплота, krautfolk collective Staraya Derevnya and audio-visual group Llull Machines.
ANGHARAD DAVIES is a Welsh violinist based in London working with free improvisation, compositions and performance. Her approach to sound involves attentive listening and exploring beyond the sonic confines of her instrument, her classical training and performance expectation. Much of her work involves collaboration. She has long-standing duos with Tisha Mukarji, Dominic Lash and Lina Lapelyte and plays with Common Objects, Cranc and Skogen. She has been involved in projects with Tarek Atui, Tony Conrad, Richard Dawson, Gwenno, Roberta Jean, Jack McNamara, Rie Nakajima, Tim Parkinson, Eliane Radigue, Georgia Ruth and J. G. Thirlwell. Most of her records are released on Another Timbre but she also has releases on Absinth Records, all that dust, Confrontrecords, Emanem, Potlatch and winds measure recordings. Her first orchestral piece was commissioned by LCMF in 2019. She is currently writing a piece for Juliet Fraser and Explore Ensemble.
SASHA ELINA (pronounced Yélina) is a curator and musician based in London. Up until 2021, she was a member of the new and experimental music scene in Moscow, both as a performer and producer of musical and interdisciplinary events. Sasha is a founding member of The Same Ensemble, a duo with composer cyril scheer, performing original compositions and arrangements that connect experimental chamber pop and new music. She is the founder and artistic director of the Music Space Architecture project, dedicated to identifying and investigating different areas of interaction between music and architecture. She was a fellow of OneBeat 2019, a 1-month programme produced by Bang on a Can’s Found Sound Nation.
