SOUND ROOM LXIX
Monica VLAD (RO) designs and develops new media installations and spaces. She uses new technology as an artistic medium of expression and as a medium for the interactive and audio visual communication. The sound of her performances is mainly based on noise, ambient, drone, experimental music; ranging from low to very high frequencies; from minimal to glitch, from analog to digital.
Sleeping in a viper’s nest, pillow sounding like a thunder. Abstract Noise From Nothing. Working in Helsinki for a few moments, exploring… (collaborating?)
Stephen Christopher Stamper is a British-born artist living and working in Helsinki. Through sound work, installation and performance, Stephen has explored themes of decay, memory and obsolescence, the body and its relationship to illness, the manipulation and execution of code by machine, extreme metal music culture, and the a cappella community singing tradition of Sacred Harp. For his performance at Sound Room, Stephen will once again attempt to conjure the following from a combination of analogue and digital: "drone-fuzz, magnetic pulsation, vocal snippets, waking dreams, the surf's steady pound and the hum of utility poles" (@JasonGubbels).
