Chagall is an Amsterdam-born, London-based electronic music producer, songwriter, singer, performer and early adopter of the mi.mu gloves. They are wireless data gloves to perform electronic music with gesture.
Inspired by the people around her, nature, ancient Greek poetry, the music of Björk, James Blake, Beethoven, and many others, she writes songs that are deeply personal but underpinned by a sometimes uncomfortable bed of wobbly basses and quirky sounding beats.
In her futuristic audio-visual live set with mi.mu gloves and effective choreography Chagall controls all electronic layers, vocal effects and interactive visuals with the movement of her hands. She creates an almost hyper-reality, a physical space where normally invisible sound effects are represented visually.
With over 60 performances at e.g. SXSW, Amsterdam Dance Event, TEDx, Latitude Festival, STRP, Dutch Design Week Music, Ableton Loop, Sonar +D, Boiler Room, Green Man and Nesta Futurefest Chagall is one of the most experienced users of the technology to date. She is also one of the 5 UK representatives of the PRS Foundation Keychange programme, an initiative empowering women to transform the future of the music industry by showcasing, speaking and collaborating at festivals in Europe & Canada in 2018. Chagall is currently an artist in residence at De Effenaar in Eindhoven, The Netherlands working on various projects using new technologies like VR towards immersing audiences in music experiences.
Aszyk is an audio-visual artist based in London with nearly a decade’s worth of experience in design, illustration, animation and music. His latest show ‘Floral Intensities’ is the distilling of all these professions into a unique, botanical AV performance.
With skills as a VJ (visual-jockey) ASZYK has performed in places as far reaching as Taipei and Sydney, as well as having performed here in the UK at festivals such as Creamfields, live on TV for Channel 4’s House Party (alongside the legendary Soul II Soul no less) and having created a huge projection mapped intro piece for Google's Polymer summit at Tobacco Dock. It’s this lust for live performance that led to building a full audiovisual experience from scratch - allowing him to create something that works in perfect harmony from the sound to the visuals, directed and crafted entirely by himself.
Inspired by an array of organic forms mixed with geometric patterns, Floral Intensities is an AV performance like no other. Crafting elements of the show in virtual reality before being rendered out with stunning detail, ASZYK utilises the latest technologies to construct a living, breathing audio-visual experience that will stimulate your senses.
