Adam Basanta: ”Small Movements” – live at VNM 2016 Festival.

Adam Basanta

Adam Basanta’s work investigates listening and communication practices as active, participatory, multi-sensory activities which are distributed throughout a variety of human, material and technological agencies. Arranging common commercially available objects into delicately intertwined and seemingly performative choreographies, Basanta disrupts their technical and economic functions while revealing their material agencies and status as extended technological prostheses.

Fredrik Gran: Excerpt of ”Economy of Leisure” for solo laptop. Camera: Lawrence Dupuis.

Fredrik Gran

Fredrik Gran is an award-winning composer originally from the Vällingby suburb in Stockholm, Sweden. His music and research intersects electroacoustic and acoustic sound ideas, employing mechanic/robotic interactive units, amplified instruments and objects, computer-assisted transcription of his own electroacoustic music and purpose-made electronic models into the notated sphere of acoustic instruments. Fredrik’s work covers orchestral, chamber, vocal, electroacoustic and live electronic music, as well as music for installations, museums, dance, digital and visual art.
