Heroines of Sound
040722: I’m honoured to have been part of Heroines of Sound. AMAZING FESTIVAL. So many curious, new thinking, virtuosic acts.
OTHER EYE (aka Yiran Zhao and I) had the pleasure to be part of the Friday night act along with the one and only Mini Moog Project, where my piece TRIO was on.
The Wire and The Quietus wrote a bit about us and the festival, check it out below:
The Wire by Emily Bick:
The Quietus by Esme Bennett: Other Eye is the duo of Yiran Zhao & Kirstine Lindemann, who use their corporeal selves to reveal music outside of sound, drawn only from physical narration. The two performers’ movements are magnified through video, the central idea being to create a unique and uncomfortable confrontation with their living bodies, creating a spectacle of closeness.
Thanks for a wonderful Klang
