Sonica 2019

Swedish composer Klara Lewis performs live at Sonica, premiering brand new music. Her latest compositions are built around musical rhythms derived from such unlikely sources as the noises of food preparation and the found sounds of a Tuscan forest. From these minimal beginnings, Lewis builds up layer upon layer of ambient sound to create glittering, crystalline drone music. The human voice is never far from Lewis’s work, looping through her structural soundscapes to give them warmth and emotional texture, while projections show bands of vivid colour melting over and around her in ceaseless slow collapse as she works.
