Tomoko Sauvage, xin and Judith Hamann fill out Sonic Acts Academy 2020 opening programme
Sonic Acts Academy 2020 officially opens on 21 February at Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and the programme now fills out with new additions Tomoko Sauvage, xin and Judith Hamann. Paris-based artist Tomoko Sauvage combines water, ceramics and hydrophones in an experimental practice grounded on live performance that investigates improvisation and interaction with the environment. Berlin-based artist and writer xin warps, mangles and strangles rave tropes into something anew. And Australian cellist Judith Hamann joins French electronic composer Malibu; the soft strains of Malibu’s spoken voice overlaying the swell of cut-up sound and Hamann’s cello. Friday and Sunday Day Passes, and individual event tickets are available via Tickets.
