Performania Spring 2020



A musical racing car, talking cups, alien electronics from a ball that is thrown into the audience and an oboe that sounds like an upset electric guitar. The new absurdist performance Performania by the duo Perforator – oboist/composer Marlies van Gangelen and electronic musician/composer Akim Moiseenkov – is inexplicable, a unique visual and auditory spectacle. The oboe merges with the decor, movements become music and an army of self-built instruments of ingenious live electronics comes to life.

Using classical instruments in combination with electronics and 21st century technology, Perforator puncture through traditions in their quest for the new.

































Comprising of Marlies van Gangelen on oboe and electronics and Akim Moiseenkov on self-built electronic instruments, the duo create playful contemporary music in the uniquely interactive show ‘Performania’. Using a variety of sensors, such as movement sensors on their bodies and adding ingenious live electronics to objects as remote control cars, balloons and plants, Perforator animate the often hidden electronic process live on stage. Perforator respect the past as they advance into the future with their innovative performance techniques and a musical language that’s entirely their own.

14.06.18 PERFORATOR present at ISPA International Society for the Performing Arts Leeuwarden 2018






























PERFORATOR punches holes in the notion of sheet music. Musical innovators Marlies van Gangelen (oboe) and Akim Moiseenkov (electronics) make fun electronic contemporary music from self-made synthesizers, joysticks and game controllers. Together they explore the connection between sound and space using motion sensors and improvisation.


They collided from different musical directions in 2015. Marlies studied classical oboe at the Conservatory of Amsterdam (CvA) before moving to London to focus on interdisciplinary collaborations for her master’s degree at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Akim studied keyboard at the CvA's pop department, followed by a master’s degree in Live Electronics.


The vibrant duo premiered at Holland Festival 2016 and has since collaborated with several composers and artists, commissioning works from Judd Greenstein, Nik Bärtsch, Shara Worden, Julia Holter and Daniel Wohl.

Backbone

Perforator XL is an experimental ensemble comprised of five Dutch musicians who are dedicated to the exploration of creative music making. For their first project, instead of performing fully composed works, the ensemble has commissioned six international composers to contribute ‘musical backbones’

– creative starting points from which the ensemble can explore and create. These ‘musical backbones’ can be anything from a groove, a chord sequence, a melody or a set of instructions. The only restriction is: one backbone has to fit on one A4 sheet of paper. With the backbones functioning as building blocks for an hour of improvisation, in each concert Perforator restructures the content and builds a unique sonic texture.


Composers involved

Nik Bärtsch

Judd Greenstein

Julia Holter

Greg Saunier (Deerhoof)

Daniel Wohl

Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond)


Premiere June 8 2016
