Vocalist Sarah Albu and composer/sound artist Mári Mákó are frequent collaborators. Rooted in improvisation with voice, electronics, field recordings and objects, Albu’s practice has ranged from contemporary chamber music to community electrified ‘noise knitting’. Mákó, based in Rotterdam, uses a collection of self-built acoustic and electronic instruments in conjunction with the voice to produce live electronics-focused music. Together at the Music Gallery, they will perform a combination of solo and duo works—exploring connections between objects and electronics in new musical ways.
Persian-born concert pianist, improviser, interdisciplinary composer, artist-researcher and educator Anoush Moazzeni enjoys a performing career that has frequently taken her around the world. The development of her creative music practice (focused on interdisciplinary performance designs for piano and new technologies) incorporates interaction between artistic interpretation and scholarly reflection. This concert features her performance of “The drops of the rain become one with me” for “piano+”—a solo project rooted in the augmentation of the piano with objects, digital processing, and invented robotic devices.
