Monica Tolia - BioSonics

  • The Space, Nottingham Contemporary (map)

BioSonics is a biosignal-algorithmic sonic performance, using machine learning to manipulate sonic effects and frequencies through the algorithm's reading of the performers’ data. The performer wears sensor bands that communicate her EMG data in realtime to the algorithm, constructing the uncanny machinic soundscape. Here the sound operates as a prosthetic to the performer’s interiority, a techno-produced body.  She embodies the feminine, feral, cyberpunk, abject, mad, Other… identifying with and finding agency in the entropy of the machine.

Age 14+, no booking required.
