Dear all,

ANDREA PARKINS will be available for some performances between the
beginning of October and mid November 2012.

Please get back to me very soon.

Andrea Parkins is composer, sound/installation artist and electroacoustic
musician who engages with interactive electronics as a
compositional/performative process, and explores strategies related to
Fluxus’ ordered, yet ephemeral activities. An integral participant of the
New York sound art and experimental music scene, and worldwide – she is
especially known for her uniquely gestural/textural approach to her
electronically-processed accordion and customized live sound processing.
Her laptop electronics and Fender-amped accordion create a sonic field of
lush harmonics, noisy concretized disruption, and soaring electronic

As a sound artist and composer, Parkins' works includes electroacoustic
solo and ensemble pieces, dance and film scores, electronic music works,
and multi-diffusion installations featuring amplified objects that are
found or made. This work has been presented at the Whitney Museum of
American Art, The Kitchen, Diapason, and Experimental Intermedia; and arts
spaces/festivals worldwide, including Mexico City’s First International
Sound Art festival; Unsound in Krakow; NEXT in Bratislava; and Cyberfest
2011 in St. Petersburg. Parkins also records and performs internationally
as a solo artist and in collaborations with innovators such as Otomo
Yoshihide, David Watson, John Butcher, Wilco guitarist Nels Cline, and Lê
Quan Ninh, among many others; and she has appeared on more than 50
recordings on labels including hatology, Important Records, and Atavistic.

Recent activities:
In 2010, Parkins was invited to perform her interpretations of Christian
Marclay’s graphic scores at Whitney Museum’s retrospective festival of the
artist/composer's work, and she was commissioned to create a live dance
score for The Body Cartography's new work, Symptom. She also toured
throughout Europe with Portuguese choreographer Vera Mantero who
commissioned Parkins’ live score for We Are Going to Miss Everything We
Don’t Need. In 2011 , her work has been featured as part of Independent
Curators International’s traveling sound art exhibition, "With Hidden
Noise," (along with works by Pauline Oliveros and Steve Roden) and in the
"Lingua Franca" sound art exhibition at Cyberfest 2011 in St. Petersburg,
Russia. She also created sound for digital artist Yael Kanarek’s video,
"Heavenly, So Long" that was exhibited at NYC’s Flux Factory. Currently,
she is touring in support of her recent Important Records CD, FAULTY
(BROKEN ORBIT). On an ongoing basis, Parkins develops her primary
performance project, a series of interactive audio/visual works inspired
by Rube Goldberg’s circuitous machines. Her work has received support from
American Composers Forum, NYSCA, the French-American Cultural Exchange,
Meet the Composer, Harvestworks, and the Frei und Hanseastadt Hamburg
Kulturbehoerde in Germany.

All the best.
