Xperiment>L # 2
A monthly series about women in electronic music

Live performances, film/video screenings, discussions & workshops
16-17 June 2004 | Arminius Upstairs | Rotterdam | The Netherlands

Xperiment>L returns for its second edition!

This time Xperiment>L features two outstanding women composers/performers
who have been involved in electronic music for a long time and have
produced an equally large body of work. Both have been starting off with
acoustic instruments (violin and voice) before getting involved with
electronica and hold degrees in music technology / electro-acoustic music.
Another similarity is their fascination for the theremin, as well as
creating electronic environments for improvisation. And, both share a
critical mind towards being a female in a male dominated field.

The programme's core performance is a radiophonic piece, 'Die Futuristin'
by Elisabeth Schimana. This will sit within a showcase of Austrian sound
artists and a film programme. The films selected for this edition are of
an equally high level, but not in a conceptual or intellectual way: they
appeal directly to the subconscious.
