Mia Zabelka - Leading Electro-Acoustic Performer
"In my music, I deal with acoustic interaction between the body and its
surrounding environment, with special focus on the “sound gesture”.
The sound gesture is the notion of how sound moves and how it moves
the body at the same time – the embodiment of sound, an intuitive
body-sound-machine linkage. I scrutinize this form of interface
technique with my sound art and explore it with a view to its
potential for application in communication between humans
and autonomous machines; the coexistence of man and
machine in converged environments is entrusted to hearing.
I am very interested in the interdisciplinarity between
music and science. The term “scientific music” best
applies to her work. It is music beyond melodies,
harmonies and rhythm. Scientific music is concerned
with making automatic, mechanical processes
audible. It is noise, movement, automation,
division, symbiosis, dissonance and resonance.
Paul Jonas Kinnunen's videos are the perfect
complement to my music in terms of exploring
the natural versus artificial audiovisual worlds."
