Emma Lloyd & Jess Aslan - KUBOV Electronics and Violin | here.here concert series
Emma Lloyd & Jess Aslan
UCA Farnham; 13/03/19
KUBOV (Emma Lloyd & Jess Aslan) is a duo of violin and electronics. Incorporating minimalist textures and harrowing dissonance and distortion, their music ranges from the esoterically tingly to downright disturbing. Their eclectic sonorities are a result of the hybridisation of electronics and acoustic instrument, with which they explore and combine spaces and places, warping perspective and effecting a sonic escapism.
KUBOV originated as a collaborative endeavour between composer and performer, and has developed over the years through a compulsion to break away from the traditional boundaries of the discrete roles and to research the potential of this instrumental and creative composite through performance. Jess Aslan is an associate lecturer for Music composition and Technology.
The here.here concert series, is a collaboration between bookRoom and the Audio Research Cluster at UCA Farnham, curated by Emmanuelle Waeckerle and Harry Whalley, around their common research in extended, textual, visual, gestural and object scores and ways to integrate or experience technology in text/music/film/performances. The project is supported by UCA research fund.
