For the final D/B event of the year at Spektrum, australian sound-artist and composer Jasmine Guffond and Isreali animator and live visuals visionary Ilan Katin will present a very special audio-visual performance this December.
Jasmine Guffond is a sound artist and composer from Sydney, Australia, living and working in Berlin, Germany. She has performed live internationally, exhibited sound installations and recorded music for CD and 12inch vinyl releases with the Sigma Editions, Staubgold and Monika Enterprise labels. A new solo album, Yellow Bell was released on Sonic Pieces in January 2015.
Focused on working in site specific contexts and exploring new environments for music and sound performance, her recent projects were interventions that employed digital technologies, sonification and the aesthetisation of data as a means of generating discussion around contemporary surveillance technologies as well as producing experimental audio works.
Interested in providing a presence for phenomena that usually lies beyond human perception, via the sonification of facial recognition algorithms or intangible global infrastructures, she questions what it means for our activities to be tracable, and for our identities, choices and personalities to be reduced to streams of data.
Jasmine studied sound design for film at the Australian, Film, Television and Radio School in Sydney, Australia and has just completed the Sound Studies, master in arts program at the Universität der Künste, Berlin, Germany. She has worked as a sound designer for feature films in the Australian film industry, contributed music to film soundtracks and theatre, and works as a live sound engineer.
