SOUND:TRACKS – ASTRID SONNE: ITO TAKASHI LIVE-SCORE
The Danish composer has created new music for a live performance to the work of Japanese film and video artist Ito Takashi.
Astrid Sonne has quickly become one of the most renowned experimental musicians in Denmark, touring the world and winning the 2020 critic’s award as Composer of the Year. With her mix of viola, vocals, synthesizers and computer, she has already created three magical albums and is an artist who loves to challenge herself and her audience. This evening, Astrid Sonne has chosen to take on some of Japanese artist Ito Takashi’s video works. He is known for his virtuoso works, which transcend time and space with immediately simple means. His optical tricks suspend the laws of physics, but it is actually in perception – in the very encounter between film and viewer – that they transcend the boundaries of reality.
