In a special double-bill, electronic composer Jessica Ekomane and experimental percussionist Andrea Belfi will each perform solo compositions as well as extend a collaboration that was first initiated at Letra/Tone festival earlier in 2019. Ekomane explores the physical affect of sound and the perception of rhythmic structures. Her compositions are at once static and ever changing, creating hypnotic rhythmic complexities through repetitive, harmonic, and psychoacoustic micro-effects. Andrea Belfi is a Berlin based composer who places drums at the centre of his live performances, showcasing an energetic and hypnotic visual listening experience. He artfully blends compelling rhythms on his minimal drum set up with electronic textures and haunting sonic details to create a unique sound world. Belfi performs material from his latest EP “Strata”, which draws on and experiments with Gnawa rhythms.
