22.05.24, 19:30, Sarah Davachi, Ruiskamer

The work of Canadian composer-performer Sarah Davachi deals with the close intertwining of sound and time. Long drawn-out but meticulously crafted harmonies gradually expose variations in texture, overtones, psychoacoustic phenomena, tunings and intonation. Her compositions include both solo and chamber music, with Davachi using a wide range of acoustic and electronic instruments. For this Ruiskamer, Sarah puts herself solo at a Hammond organ*.

Davachi's work is sometimes compared to that of minimalist composers such as LaMonte Young and Eliane Radigue. She has toured with artists such as Grouper, William Basinski and Arnold Dreyblatt, and created works commissioned by London Contemporary Orchestra, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra and Cello Octet Amsterdam, among others.

*It was previously announced that the hall's own organ would be used, but due to repair works this proved no longer possible.
