About the artists:
Described by The Wire as an artist "unafraid of working within different disciplines and stylistic constraints" (2015), Pauchi Sasaki's interdisciplinary approach integrates musical composition with the design of multimedia performances and the application of new technologies. A composer, performer and improviser that collaborates actively with projects linked to film, dance, theater, installation, site specific and interdisciplinary performances; Pauchi has performed internationally in Latin America, Europe, USA and Japan. Her music recreates intimate subjective landscapes through electro-acoustic sonorities mixed with field recordings and synthesis. Her compositions involve acoustic, amplified and electronic instrumentation performed through ensemble formats influenced by improvisational aesthetics and ethnic musical traditions. Her work also focuses on the development of real time interactive music and self designed instruments using Max Msp and circuit bending. This branch of her work seeks the embodiment of electronic music performance integrating the emission of electronic sounds with corporal expressivity.
Peruvian visual artist Nomi Sasaki is devoted to Chinese black ink tradition and animation. She pursued studies at the Purple Cloud Calligraphy Association in Tokyo and holds a bachelor degree in Communication Sciences from Lima University. Her video work explores scale and dimension, the material nature of water, the behavior of light and how these elements can create new landscapes and atmospheres for multidisciplinary performances. Her videos are developed through handmade techniques.
