Jessica Ekomane <https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/sonia-346-jessica-ekomane> is
a sound artist and composer, and a lecturer in Sound Studies and Sonic Arts
at the Universität der Künste Berlin. Ekomane’s quadraphonic performances
and installations approach algorithmic/computer music as a social practice
that is grounded in questions such as the relationship between individual
perception and collective dynamics, and explores listening expectations and
their societal roots.

Her pieces unfold as static situations in which change happens not in
sequences, but in the slowly shifting relationship between the elements and
events in each composition. This allows her to play with space and with the
perception of rhythmic structures, noise, and melody in a kind of
psychoacoustic experiment that carries with it the possibility of catharsis
and emancipation.

In this podcast,
<https://rwm.macba.cat/en/sonia/sonia-346-jessica-ekomane> Jessica
Ekomane talks about the freedom of play, eMule, pipe organs, the
limitations and flexibility of Max/MSP, early non-Western sound synthesis,
DIY research, quotas, minimalism, and her early love for Ligeti and
Destiny's Child.
