MUTEKLIVE163 - Klara Lewis
Klara Lewis (SE)
Saturday August 25, 2018 - MTELUS
Mastered by Pheek
Who: Swedish composer and found sound sculptor
Style: Enchantingly spacious sculptures of sound that combine field recordings, deconstructed beats and distorted electronics; intuitive and emotional experimentations in liminal musical states.
Labels: Editions Mego, Peder Mannerfelt
Latest: Too (2016)
More: Lewis’ experiments with sound and visuals grew out of a strong interest for the like-minded projects of her musician dad Graham Lewis (of Wire and Dome), who also recently released albums on Editions Mego.
MUTEKs: Barcelona: 2017; Mexico: 2016
Whether it’s pasta being drained in a colander or the acoustics of a medieval forest in Tuscany, Klara Lewis’ at once exciting and unnerving rhythmic compositions use found sounds as bona fide instruments.
