The event takes place within the framework of Thessia Machado’s “Inga Maren Otto Fellowship in Music Composition” of the American Academy in Berlin (Spring 2017 semester).

Machado’s installation features wall-mounted, photosensitive sound modules, which are conducted by light patterns from a graphic score traveling on a mechanical apparatus built from a deconstructed fax machine.

Around her installation, several performances with noted sound-artists as well as an artist talk are scheduled.

About Thessia Machado

Thessia Machado is a visual/sound artist, instrument builder and performer whose work investigates the physicality of sound and its effect on our perception of space. In sculptures and interactive installations that have a real-time, live component, the expressive potential is still active and changeable.

As a extension of this practice, and under the moniker link, she also performs electronic and electro-acoustic experimental music with hand-made and modified instruments.

Thessia’s installations and video pieces have been exhibited in New York, London, Philadelphia, Paris, Amsterdam, Dublin, Berlin and Athens. She has been awarded residencies at Homesession, Barcelona, the NARS Foundation, NY, I-Park, MacDowell Colony, Yaddo, the Atlantic Center for the Arts, the Irish Museum of Modern Art and the Vermont Studio Center and is a recipient of fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts, The Experimental Television Center and The Bronx Museum.

Organized by The American Academy in Berlin, in cooperation with the Technische Universität Berlin, and Universität der Künste Berlin.
