Entangled Sounds presents experimental turntablist Joke Lanz and Lucie Vítková using sonic costumes and feedback sounds. The Entangled Sounds series features performers, who follow ideas on materiality by exploring object-specific sounds, resonant bodies and (meta-) mechanical motion. They often use self-made instruments (acoustic/electro-acoustic) or materialities of audio technology/media (turntables, cassette tapes). By incorporating context and site-specific aspects, Entangled Sounds aims to create intersections of live concert and sound art while foregrounding artistic practices, processes and the feedback loop between artist, instrument, venue and audience.
Lucie Vítková is a composer, improviser, and performer (accordion, hichiriki, harmonica, voice, and tap dance). Her compositions focus on sonification (compositions based on abstract models derived from physical objects), while in her improvisation practice she explores characteristics of discrete spaces through the interaction between sound and movement. Her recent work reflects an interest in the musical legacy of Morse Code and the social-political aspects of music and art in relation to everyday life.
Turntablist Joke Lanz creates autonomous sound cells that melt into a language free of any function. He combines ritual reductionism with anarchistic playfulness, atmospheric soundscapes with cut-up noise, and physicality coupled with unpredictability, producing massive scratches, walls of sound, grooves, loops, noises, and voice modulations. Best known for his internationally acclaimed Noise project Sudden Infant, Joke Lanz has been presenting his work for more than 25 years worldwide and is one of the most prolific and profound artists working in the border zones where performance and body art meet Improvisation and Noise.
