Robert Walser Centre, Bern
To ramble means to walk for pleasure and to talk or write in an inconsequential way. Can walking and talking be considered a musical act? In this episode, composer and sound artist Clara de Asís will perform a live improvisation and talk about the affinities between Walser’s work and her own approach to sound and music.
Clara de Asís is a composer and performer of contemporary experimental music. She develops an approach to sound that highlights simplicity, non-intervention and active listening as means of music making. Her works display an extreme precision and intuitive openness that involves a dedicated attention to sound on its details and its most pure forms. As well as guitar as her main instrument, she uses different combinations of objects, materials and sound sources, incorporating electroacoustics and minimal approaches. Her music has been showcased in many international scenes including New York, Berlin, Paris, Prague, Calcutta, Stockholm, Madrid, Huddersfield and Helsinki.
Events are organised by Ada Arendt, Robert Walser Centre in Bern and the Swiss Embassy in Poland.
