Performance of the short electroacoustic piece “Elle Loge La Folie” at  Sound Art Festival Berlin 2012 as part of the 60×60 (2012) Voice Mix project. “Elle Loge La Folie” is a short electroacoustic piece after Roberto Matta’s painting with the same title. My intention was to use as many different sources as possible in a very limited duration without losing the individuality of each source. Mixing and editing of the various sounds aims to create a kind of surrealistic “biomorphism” of sound objects and dissolve boundaries between artificial, natural and biological forms in a similar way that Matta’s painting does with visual objects.
