September 25, 26 & 27 - 2020, Berlin
Marisol Jimenez & Andreas Trobollowitsch
Blind Signal focuses on new forms of horizontal collaborations by inviting two sound artists to combine their work for a 5-day residency and 3 days of public events. MULTIPLE invites Marisol Jimenez and Andreas Trobollowitsch, two established sound artists and composers, for triangular electroacoustic installative and performances in the Kleiner Wasserspeicher Berlin.
Blind Signal proposes a new collaborative project combining the productions of two composers on a cuneate creation process. MULTIPLE will give to Marisol Jimenez and Andreas Trobollowitsch time to present their singularities through the presentation of their own propelled instruments, then invite them to form new installations and performances following the combination of the two, in order to create pieces that allow them to adopt new possibilities. The accumulation, without expunging their singularities will allow them to open new sonic forms, based on the research of equivalent sound textures and focusing on microtonal and rhythmical elements. To enrich these sonorities the artists invite the trumpets players Carina Khorkhordina, Alexander Kranabetter and the jinashi shakuhachi player Kiku Day, for their performances.
The artists will blend the uniqueness of the sound sculptures to stimulate a tonal ensemble of shapes and elements by the multiplication and erasure.
The audience will have the possibility to experience multiple facets of the collaboration focusing on microtonal and rhythmical elements, during three days.
Marisol Jiménez is a composer, performer, and multidisciplinary artist from Guadalajara, Mexico currently residing in Berlin. Her work expresses an intense fascination with the tactile process of creating sound, an interplay of the entropic within the structured musical machinery, colliding the primeval with the technological to seek forceful sensuous and visceral energies. Her output includes numerous chamber and electronic works, as well as sound and intermedia installations. Most of her acoustic, electronic, and mixed media works involve self-made sound sculptures, found objects, and collected sound materials from her own field recordings, improvisations, and performances. She completed a Doctorate degree in composition at Stanford University in 2011, and a Masters of Arts degree from Mills College, Oakland, CA (2005). Her work has been performed and commissioned by leading ensembles and interpreters of new music throughout Europe, The United States, Japan, South America, and Mexico.
Andreas Trobollowitsch is a mainly Vienna-based composer artist and composer.
He works extensively in the fields of electroacoustic composition and improvisation, and has composed for dance, theatre, film and radio.
Based on rotation, vibration and feedback systems he uses mainly modified everyday objects, prepared fans and string instruments.
Recently he has been focusing primarily on conceptual compositions, self-developed musical instruments, sound and drawing installations.
Interested in dichotomy of the intellectual and the physical he includes visual aspects, spatiality, movement, and the way that they relate to sound.
