Acud Backyard Summer X Sarah Davachi + Jessica Ekomane

ACUD CLUB 19h → Concert

Sarah Davachi graces our courtyard with her subtle, meditative drones.
... (b. 1987, Calgary, Canada) holds a bachelor's degree in philosophy from the University of Calgary, and a master's degree in electronic music and recording media from Mills College in Oakland, California. As a composer of electronic and electroacoustic music, Davachi's compositional projects are primarily concerned with disclosing the antiquated instruments and forgotten sonics of a bygone era in analog synthesis, with concurrent treatment of acoustic sources – particularly organ, piano, strings, and woodwinds – often involving de-familiarization through processing. Her work considers the experience of enveloped sonic dwelling, utilizing extended durations, psychoacoustic manipulations, and simple harmonic structures that emphasize variations in overtone complexity and natural phasing patterns.
Her work as a researcher concerns aspects of experimentalism, organology and archival study, and phenomenology and perception, and has been published and presented within North America and Europe. Since 2007, Davachi has also had the unique opportunity to work for the National Music Centre (formerly Cantos Music Foundation) in Calgary as an interpreter and content developer of their collection of acoustic and electronic keyboard instruments. She has held artist residencies at The Banff Centre for the Arts (Banff, Canada), STEIM (Amsterdam, Netherlands), WORM (Rotterdam, Netherlands), EMS (Stockholm, Sweden), OBORO (Montréal, Canada), and MESS (Melbourne, Australia) and is the recipient of grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, and SOCAN. She is currently a doctoral candidate in musicology at the University of California, Los Angeles. // Website

...'s practice unfolds around music and sound installations. Her compositions seek a physical and cathartic effect alternating between noise and melody, and playing with our perception of rhythmical structures. Her latest project consists in a quadraphonic performance exploring the way our perception of rhythms is affected by the surrounding space, thereby introducing elements of psychoacoustics and gestalt theory. She is one of the Berlin Community Radio [INCUBATOR] residents for their 2017 edition, as well as one of the two chosen participants of this year's Open Port Club residency in Sapporo (Japan). // Homepage
