She Makes Noise 2022

20 Oct - 23 Oct 2022
She Makes Noise 2022

She Makes Noise was created eight years ago to celebrate electronic and experimental music and contemporary audiovisual art made by women, who despite their contributions to these fields have often been ignored. The latest editions of the festival have offered a transversal vision that encompasses non-binary identities, reflecting the transformation of the gender perspective in recent years.

Texan artist and queer activist Lotic, who explores new electronic sounds, will present her "Endless Power" show designed with visual artist Emmanuel Biard, never before seen in Madrid.

From Asia, the She Makes Noise festival brings the first performances in Spain by Vietnamese artist Veron Xio alias x/o, with an audiovisual show that explores metamorphosis and gender transition though rhythms that blend nu-metal, trip hop and contemporary electronic; Hüma Utku flies in from Istanbul with a proposal that examines noise and industrial music while incorporating the tradition of her native country; and Japanese artist Object Blue brings to the Courtyard a multimedia fiction with neo-medieval influences of the video game world and the metaverse, in collaboration with Polish producer Natalia Podgórska.

The sounds of the African diaspora are represented by DJ Yazzus from Ghana.

This year the festival also returns to the Auditorium with the audiovisual performance by Swedish composer Aircode, who presents her first album in which she draws parallels between nature and electronic music and explores the concept of “mutant natures”.

The film programme mixes ancestral with contemporary through six titles that introduce us to a trans indigenous community, to the life of women who earn their living as seafood workers or cleaners, and to the friendship that springs up between two young people who don't fit into normative society. Aribada, the new film by Simon(e) Jaikiriuma Paetau and Natalia Escobar (Colombia/Germany), Queens of the Qing Dynasty, by Ashley McKenzie (Canada) and Dear Darkness, by Antoinette Zwirchmayr (Austria) receive their first showing in Spain, while Tatuado nos ollos levamos o pouso, the new film by Diana Toucedo (Spain) and Madrugada, another new film, by Leonor Noivo (Portugal) receive their Madrid premieres.

Tower 1 on the Terrace hosts Tecnologías de Contacto, a workshop by visual artist, cultural researcher and composer Coco Moya that adopts the form of a sound experimentation game guided by ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) techniques and consisting in the pleasurable tingling sensation that relaxes the muscles. As the final live show, Coco Moya performs "No hables con la boca llena", subtitled “Munkbang: Masa Madre”, in collaboration with artist Ricardo Fernández Martin alias erreefe. The sound piece will be broadcast as a podcast on La Casa Encendida Radio.

The En Familia programme features two experimental electronic concerts for children and young people with the presentation in Madrid of h waas, a musician, designer and audiovisual artist who explores a mysterious nature; and the interactive concert by composer and technologist Hara Alonso, who proposes the collective creation of an orchestra with ordinary objects and instruments.

Curated by Playtime Audiovisuales: Natalia Piñuel Martín (music and activities) and Enrique Piñuel Martín (film).
