MARIA CHAVEZ is mainly recognized in the art community as an improviser, sound artist and curator.
Her sound installations, visual objects and live turntable performances focus on the values of accidents and it’s unique, complicated possibilities with sound emitting machinery like the turntable.
Influenced by improvisation in contemporary art, her work expands outside of the sound world straddling different disciplines of interest.
For this event Maria will perform with musician AUDREY CHEN a Chinese-American musician using the cello, voice and analog electronics.
Chen’s work delves deeply into her own version of narrative and non-linear storytelling.
Her playing explores the combination and layering of a homemade analog synthesizer, preparations and traditional and extended techniques in both the voice and cello.
