Zoe Efstathiou / Egil Kalman
Egil Kalman (modular synthesizers) and Zoe Efstathiou (electronics – modular synthesizers)
The duo explores the materiality of space by sculpting sound objects which are dynamically changing through interaction and improvisation. Subtle nuances alter the surface characteristics and boundaries of the objects, evoking a sensuous and tangible experience and creating an environment where the boundaries between the acoustic and electronic world become unclear.
By tracing the microlevel sound articulations and the through timbral explorations of acoustic and electronic intstruments, large scale forms are created where the momentary interpolates with the ever evolving.The music reflects the ephemeral, the transient state between future and past, inviting the listener to experience time as a superficial characteristic of reality.
