af web

In their new performance Critical State, Jan-Bas Bollen (NL) and Alison Isadora (NZ/NL) explore a sonic environment that slowly shifts between evolving textures and moments of unpredictable audio disruption, responding to their audio surroundings through a combination of improvised and composed material.

SYNC is the composer/performer duo Jan-Bas Bollen (NL) and Alison Isadora(NZ/NL). Over the last 19 years they have created a number of compelling works within an interactive electronic environment: Trace (2008), concerned with the dynamics of trauma on a political and personal level; Born and Bred (2001) dealing with issues of citizenship and belonging; The Deep South (2002) inspired by NZ geography; the The Big Shop (1998) a critical approach to consumerism and Hoofdwas (1994), music theatre for mezzo-soprano and computer controlled washing machine.
