Ottavi likens “deconstructive music” to a strategy for “re-interrogating our relation to time and space through sound”

VRG Bls (Performance, voice & electronics)
Solid display of Bliss’s musical and mood-altering abilities, ambient dream from the mind of Brian Eno or even Aphex Twin.
MICHAEL PISARO-LIU (guitar solo)
Michael Pisaro (born 1961 in Buffalo, New York) is a guitarist and composer. A member of the Wandelweiser Composers Ensemble, he has composed over 80 works for a great variety of instrumental combinations, including several pieces for variable instrumentation.
Though richly varied, Michael Pisaro-Liu’s (b.1961) works are linked through their philosophical and ethical concern for the interaction between music and its sounding environment, their openness to the creative contributions of performers, and their capacity for making felt our belonging to and participation in a world of continuous and often surprising variation.
MARLO DE LARA (voice & electronics)
“Using found objects, installation, and various forms of amplification, I assemble environments and structures that use sound to impart meaning and affect for the participant. While I assemble installations and sound sculptures, it is the interaction between sound, the visual work, and the story of those that encounter the work. I use video and film in my practice as well as live performances of improvised sound. My work is often informed by my experience as the child of Filipino migrants of the ‘brain drain’ and my coming of age. The work is created through an unabashed feminist sociopolitical practice/research that editorializes on contemporary global conditions. ”
Festival of emerging digital cultures and free electronic practices, Electropixel is part of an international network of electronic arts festivals. The festival opens a singular space allowing the meeting of artists (audiovisual, musicians, visual artists, intermedia, performers, etc.), theorists, programmers, tinkerers, and inventors of all kinds and of the factories of the everyday. For this new edition of the Electropixel festival, we plan to deepen the relationship to the collective and to shared creation through a network of international exchanges.
The festival continues to imagine and think about the new modalities of artistic creation during the pandemic and in particular the disintegration of the idea of commonality and sharing. We need to find links in creation, new ways to explore new writing together rather than being isolated, confined, separated. How to build creations that represent multiple and delocalized collectives?
