An evening full of electronica and electro-acoustic ambient drones
Sadly enough Linus Hillborg can’t make it to Brussels tonight. The concert of Aleksandra Slyz and Abigail Toll will take place as planned.
Abigail Toll is an experimental music artist from Berlin. Her psychoacoustic worlds of sound are textural, often sustained & emotional reactions to the political mechanisms that surround us. In 2018, she was artist in residence for the Amplify Berlin programme with Caterina Barbieri & Maya Shenfeld. During that period, she released her first EP ‘Old World | New Ruins’ under the name Ionian Death Robes (with Laury Achten).
Her solo debut ‘Matrices of Vision’ will soon be out on Shelter Press.
Aleksandra Słyż is a Polish composer, sound designer and sound engineer currently living between Stockholm and Poznań. In her live shows, Aleksandra focuses on finding subtle connections between acoustic instruments and modular synths, creating rich and diverse drone structures that slowly but intensely pulse and resonate in the surrounding space.
An other big part of her artistic practice is “interactive sonification systems”. Since 2017 she has been conducting artistic research, applying practical experiments to motion sonification and human proprioceptive reflexes and various sorts of interactions. Aleksandra has already presented her work at various music and film festivals in Europe and the US, including the Avant Art Festival, Between Festival, Unsound, Up To Date Festival.
