Dear all, I am booking some solo dates for ANDREA PARKINS. She’s available from 25th April 2013 onwards. 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 feedback. 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. Have a nice week-end. I look forward to hearing from you asap. Regards. Alain Some Noise asbl C/O Alain Bolle PO BOX 43 1050 Brussels 5 Belgium
