Gig Information

Elisabeth Schimana (Austria), composer and musician, premieres Virus #2.4 for electronics, taonga pūoro (Rob Thorne), violin (Tristan Carter) and cello (Charley Davenport). This new piece, composed while artist-in-residence at the New Zealand School of Music, builds on her extensive Virus series, which Schimana describes as a struggle and synthesis between… resonating bodies. Together they stay alive. The concert will also feature Into the Sun (2016), for multichannel live electronics. Schimana’s composition of the new work is supported by the Bundeskanzleramt Österreich and Austro Mechana.

Composer and musician Elisabeth Schimana is one of Austria's female pioneers of electronic music, and her projects are marked by a radical approach and equally unconventional aesthetics. Initially trained as a vocalist, she went on to earn degrees in composition, computer music, musicology, and ethnology. She has worked intensively with the theremin in Moscow and the Max Brand Synthesizer in Vienna. She has created countless radio works in cooperation with ORF Kunstradio (Austria), numerous sound installations, as well as interdisciplinary, performative and telematic projects.
