SOUND ROOM LVII
Kuupuu (Jonna Karanka) conjures up mysteries deep and true, sometimes revealing chlorophyll glaciers spreading out under icy waters, sometimes bringing to life wicker dolls through whispered incantations and narrations of animal death. Her voice is the haunting, her instrumentation is the house, and out the window flowers are surprisingly bright around the bird nests and chorus keepers.
Derek Holzer (1972) is an American instrument builder and sound artist based in Helsinki FI & Berlin DE, whose current interests include DIY analog electronics, the relationship between sound + space, media archaeology and the meeting points of electroacoustic, noise, improv and extreme music. He has performed live, taught workshops and created scores of unique instruments and installations since 2002 across Europe, North and South America, and New Zealand.
For his performance at Sound Room he will present VECTOR SYNTHESIS, a media-archaeological model of a direct sound+image relationship, utilizing vintage vector video monitors and hand-build electronics to create shifting, realtime, sonic light sculpture.
