Klara Lewis - Sweden - 24 September - Klara Lewis - Sweden - 24 September
"This is evolution of electronic music. God bless u Klara, hope i hear u live someday :). "
Scrubbing, filtering and warping her own field recordings, Swedish composer Klara Lewis constructs lush and organic electronic soundscapes that resemble grand terrestrial gestures, like the movement of tectonic plates or a fracturing ice shelf.
Collecting sounds is a habitual endeavour for Swedish sound sculptor, Klara Lewis. Using recorded sound as her raw material, Lewis detaches it entirely from it’s source and reconstructs it through a series of electronic processing. Her distinctive texture rich tracks secretly blend the everyday sounds of her journeys, home and encounters into a world of fragile instability. Her productions are emotionally charged with a resounding duality of expression; excitement and anxiety, joy and melancholy, anger and grief. Yet, mastery over her medium comes with an intuitive human warmth despite her impressive technical acuity. Signed to Viennese label Editions Mego, she has recently released her second album, Too, which marked a shift from heavily droning soundscapes towards a more rhythmic narrative.
This project is presented in the framework of SHAPE (Sound, Heterogeneous Art and Performance in Europe)
