Patchmakers and handmade orchestras
We can't wait. 18 days to go until the NEU NOW Festival opens in Vilnius, Lithuania. In the Jotta Magazine, you can already read interviews with Marloeke van der Vlugt
and Karen Skog
, both of whom will be presenting their work there.
Karen Skog creates layered soundscapes from hand-made and found instruments – a cello, an organ, a one violin and a theremin. Holding an MA in Fine Art from Bergen National Academy of the Arts, Karen will bring her musical artifacts (along with her own 'orchestra') to play improvised concerts at the NEU NOW festival.
Marloeke van der Vlugt is a Theatre Science graduate who works with technology and virtual worlds. The 'Patchworker' series sees interactive switches and faders placed on her own body, triggering bursts of video feed and arcades of sound, as archived 'bodily memories' are shown to the visitor.
There sure will be more blogging about the event on-site. And we're working to finally, finally
get the online festival going next week, where you can view another 142 projects.
