20:00 | Paul Gründorfer

Following the idea of sonority as a temporary ubiquitous experience, this set will focus on continuous ecosystems, impulse and feedback. While using computer and small electronic devices built for transmission and to pick up vibration it will mainly question sound as a transitory but reappearing element. (computer, amplifiers, HF-VLF signals)

Artistic work in the scope of conceptual and process art, site specific intervention, sound sculpture, performances. Paul Gründorfer is currently working on installations and interventions that deal with functional methods and question the spatial conditions. He develops process-related test structures and examines variable or unstable systems for their perceptibility and reception.

Isabella Forciniti is a Vienna based sound artist from Italy. She is currently working on a composition exploring the sonic possibilities of the Buchla 100 series modular synthesizer owned by Ernst Krenek. Besides performing live she has also created works for Austria's radio station Ö1 and gained experience with movies during her work with Kubelka's „Arnulf Rainer“ film strips and scoring gender-critical silent movies from the early 20th century.

Her work maneuvers within tensions evoked by the substantial aspects of sound and improvised music. Her intention is to explore deliberate states of sounds through examining relationships among interwoven sound surroundings, informal practice as well as their intrinsic abilities. Her work thrives to release streams of thoughts at the margins of the unknown.

Isabella Forciniti cooperated with Elliott Sharp, Burkhard Stangl, Antye Greie-Ripatti, Katharina Klement, Joni Void, Ryoko Akama to name but a few. She holds a degree in communication sciences focused on sociology and multimedia. In 2019 she finished the university program Computer Music and Electronic Media (ELAK) at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. Currently she studies computer music and composition at the Anton Bruckner Private University focussing on digital music performance and improvised music.
