OCTOPUSSY on TOUR, empathetic sound art musician on tour to connect and reflect on precarious environmental and life realities, creating adaptive performative setups in response to the present mood and experience in the hosting community.
Applying different media I create sites and performances for various contexts that invite the spectator to participate in particular audiovisual time-space experiences. This way I am exploring ways for involving the audience with their interests and movements. I experiment with the simultaneity and ambiguity of the grotesque, the glamorous, the formal, the stereotypical, the personal and the fictional. Different performative personas help me to embody and animate my specific interests in representation, attitude and storytelling.
