Julia Mihály, a composer and performer, works at the border of new music and performance. Standing in the tradition of technology-based performance, she stages installations, performances, audio walks and instrumental compositions using realtime sound synthesis processes as extensions for sounds and performative actions. Mihály engages with current socio-political issues and media culture, and she combines these with influences from pop culture, trash art, and anti-art.
“Before corona, I couldn’t have imagined spending more than 14 days in one place. But after all travel had been cancelled due to corona, I took time to figure out what home means to me personally. Actually, my sense of home grows out of the synergy of a certain place and its peculiarities, together with habits, daily routines and the relationship to persons that are close to me.”
For home.frankfurt.telaviv, Mihály will ask participating artists to collect audio material that relates to what they consider to be their home. She will then use the material to create an electroacoustic composition in the form of an audio walk. The aim is to create an imaginary space, a collective home.
