Critically acclaimed avant-garde composer William Basinski is a contemporary master of ambient music. Classically trained as a musician, his work spans sound and video art, expanding the boundaries of the aural landscape. Inspired by minimalists, he developed his own sonic vocabulary and signature meditative melancholic style. In ‘On Time Out of Time’, Basinski uses exclusive recordings of gravitational waves resulting from a collision of black holes 1.3 billion years ago hitting Earth for the first time to create a visceral experience.
Lea Bertucci is an American composer and performer whose work describes relationships between acoustic phenomena and biological resonance. In addition to her instrumental practice, (alto saxophone and bass clarinet), her work incorporates multi-channel speaker arrays, electroacoustic feedback, extended instrumental technique and tape collage. Deeply experimental, her work is unafraid to subvert musical expectation. At Rewire x Korzo, she will perform her latest album ‘Metal Aether’, showcasing her role as a performer. ‘Metal Aether’ develops a language of extended technique for alto saxophone that is based on a spectral, psychoacoustic, and non-linguistic approach to the instrument.
