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.
