For the first event of the die Reihe series this semester, we gladly present Thessia Machado with a sound installation and performance series telix at SomoS Gallery, Berlin.The installation features wall mounted, photo sensitive sound modules, conducted by light patterns from a graphic score traveling on a mechanical apparatus built from a deconstructed fax machine.
is a sound artist and composer and currently an Inga Maren Otto Fellow in Music Composition. She performs electronic and electro-acoustic experimental music with hand-made and modified instruments under the artistic name link. She completed her BFA Summa Cum Laude at Hunter College, after beginning her studies in art at the Escola de Artes Visuais do Parque Lage, in Rio de Janeiro.
Machado finds the active, expressive potential in sculptures and interactive installations with a real-time, live component. “Working with sound reveals the air in which we all swim as yet another malleable and responsive material,” she writes. “It bounces and is deflected by space and objects, changing and acquiring a new character.”
Machado’s work has been exhibited in New York and Philadelphia, as well as in London, Paris, Amsterdam, Dublin, Berlin, and Athens. She has received fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts, the Experimental Television Center, and The Bronx Museum. She has been awarded numerous residencies, including at MacDowell Colony, the Atlantic Center for the Arts, and the Irish Museum of Modern Art.
