Sonic Body Series 8X11 Poster

Three local and international groups of electro-acoustic and noise musicians meet dancer-performers for an evening of improvisation, creating spatial interactions and sonic abstractions in between the different bodies (body of sound and human body). Featuring: Matt Chandler (bass guitar), Tom Djll (trumpet and electronics), Jacob Felix Heule (percussion and electronics); Christine Bonansea and Jean Bender (dance and electronic noise); Alfred Genovesi (electric guitar), Katie Duck and Justin Morrison (dancers).


Beauty School: Matt Chandler (bass guitar), Tom Djll (electronics+trumpet), & Jacob Felix Heule (percussion+electronics) (USA)

A blossoming electroacoustic trio. Extreme extended technique on electric
bass, trumpet, and drums combines with nasty homemade electronics and
circuit bent keyboards to create an orgy of skronk and ugliness. Get up
with it.

Christine Bonansea & Jean Bender (dance + electronic noise) (France)

Jean Bender and Christine Bonansea have been initiating since 2011 a research process about the interaction of the body of sound and the human body in movement.

They experiment the variations of possible tensions in between the 2 masses. The spatial interaction of the bodies create new texture and forces of resistance; their friction reveals sonic abstraction, in new physical space where the error is melt to reality.
