Micro sounds. micro universes, a meditation on listening and an exploration of minimalism through movement, sound and astro-electronics, concept and spontaneity in performance. An investigation of duration, dynamic, the relationship between performance and the physical body of the performer and the physical body of sounds within physical space.
Tania Caroline Chen is based in New York and London. She has made a name as a compelling and unpredictable sound artist utilising the material worlds of piano, astro-electronics, and the intrinsic sonorities of objects, words, and dream landscapes. Her commissioned video, acoustic and electronic compositions have been performed in USA, Asia and broadcast on KPFA radio, Berkeley and BBC Radio 3. She has also revisited scores from a 21st century perspective. Her recent album John Cage’s “Electronic Music for Piano” was nominated in 2018 for a Grammy award.
