Within the programming ofThe Magnetic Terrace 2022. Vulnerable Critters
In Ekomane’s installations and live performances, sound acts as an element that transforms the space and the audience. At La Casa Encendida she will present one of her quadraphonic performances, which seek a cathartic effect through the perception of rhythmic structures and the interchange of noise and melody.
Her ever-changing, immersive soundscapes are grounded in questions such as the relationship between individual perception and collective dynamics or the investigation of listening expectations and their societal roots.
