Julia Mihaly is a performer from Frankfurt, Germany, who works in interdisciplinary projects, combining performing art with electro-acoustic music. She experiments mixing her own voice with electronic sound tapping into sensors and controllers, motion sensors and instruments that modulate and expand the sound of her voice. All of that has become Julia Mihaly’s signature line. She develops her own music software, customized to the specifics of her performances, making a point of interactivity and development of electronic chamber music.
During her speech, Julia Mihaly will talk about working with voice and challenges that a composer/performer of new music can face on their creative way. In addition, she will share her memories about working with a German composer, conductor, music theorist, one of the leaders of the music avant-garde Karlheinz Stockhausen.
