agapea: 2311

AGAPEA-webcover-1“2311 is ambiental; not in the sense of genre, but in its effect, which delivers transmitter/receiver into a total sonic architecture. In the long sequences, the artist briefly pauses to enjoy the condensing of the sound, and it seems as if the sound arises from an emotional and tactile urge to bend time so as to allow for attentive listening that would not be subjected to regulated time constrictions. agapea’s sound is layered through multiple sound sources. Different levels of music themes are accumulating in slow tempo, each resonating in its own spectrum, like in the natural environment, where each species or natural phenomenon has its own sound niche.[…]

Besides independently researching sound structures, Saša Spačal alias agapea plays with noise(s) in media art installations, in which she broaches the question of a comprehensive posthumanist perception of the environment by employing different biotechnological means or by combining live systems, technologies, and art.”
