Denovali’s residency concert series continues with another excellent double bill this time in the form of Sebastian Plano and Origamibiro who will both perform at the Volksbühne’s Grüner Salon this Monday.
Born into a musical family in Argentina, Sebastian Plano is a classically-trained contemporary music composer / multi-instrumentalist. Exploring his strong roots in folk music, Tango, and enchanted by the resonance of electronic music, he began to interpret his imagination into own sounds at the age of 12.
Besides his main instrument, cello, Plano skillfully meshes the sounds of the piano, bandoneon, percussion, and his own vocals into entirely new soundscapes. Its passionate yet graceful melody paints a cinematic landscape of the world unseen – allures you to be lost in the pleasant waves of divine sounds.
Reviewed as one of the strongest contemporary classical albums of the year, Plano’s debut album “The Arrhythmical Part of Hearts” has gained international acclaim, placing him as one of the pioneering artist combining classical and electronic elements.
Origamibiro is a collaborative project consisting of three core members: musician, soundtrack composer and producer Tom Hill, visual artist and filmmaker The Joy Of Box, and multi-instrumentalist Andy Tytherleigh. Originally started as a solo project for Tom, Origamibiro has since evolved into an audio-visual collective, producing studio music, art objects, interactive installations and hauntingly original live audio-visual performances. Origamibiro like to create work with an array of unorthodox processes and contraptions, found objects, video feeds and multi instrumentalism. Their aim is to create works of texture, lyricism and intensity.
Origamibiro have performed at the Tate Modern and The Hayward Gallerys in London, screened at The Edinburgh Film Festival and The Liverpool Biennale, were voted finalists at the 2012 Vimeo+ Awards, nominated for best production at The Dublin Fringe Festival and voted best act of Simple Things Festival 2012 by the NME.
