Vlad uses perceptual light illusions as musical devices in her immersive acoustical polyphony. And vice versa, her sound still operates in an extremely visual way, especially when her mixing tables are visible.
In our next Agora talk, Vlad will share with us the importance of trusting her intuition compared to her analytic reasoning when she performs live. The “live” response of the audience helps her to quickly alter or select another portion to compose. This is pure freedom of expression for an artist!
Don’t be mistaken, all the performances are scored for visuals and sounds, but the live interaction with the public allows Vlad to create infinite variations of her work by adding small details to her performance. Her sound palette includes noise, ambient and experimental; from low to very high frequencies that no one can barely hear; from minimal to glitch, from analogue to digital.
Can a performance concert radically change our mood? Let’s find out with Monica Vlad this 13 January at 18:30.
