Jessica Ekomane, Lo Kristensson

XKathedral poster, 2 november

XKatedral proudly presents an evening at Fylkingen with Lo Kristenson and Jessica Ekomane.

Jessica Ekomane is a French-born and Berlin-based electronic musician and sound artist. Her practice unfolds around live performances and installations. She creates situations where the sound acts as a transformative element for the space and the audience. Her quadraphonic performances, characterized by their physical affect, seek a cathartic effect through the interplay of psychoacoustics, the perception of rhythmic structures and the interchange of noise and melody. Her ever-changing and immersive sonic landscapes are grounded in questions such as the relationship between individual perception and collective dynamics or the investigation of listening expectations and their societal roots. 2019 will see the release of her first LP via Important Records.

Jessica Ekomane was one of the composers chosen as collaborators by Natascha Süder Happelman for her installation at the German pavilion of the Venice Biennale 2019, alongside Maurice Louca, DJ Marfox, Jako Maron, Tisha Mukarji and Elnaz Seyedi. She’s also part of the SHAPE Platform roaster of artists for 2019. Run each year by a union of 16 festivals and art centres – including Berlin’s CTM Festival and Krakow’s Unsound Festival – SHAPE is dedicated to promoting emerging acts, interdisciplinary cooperation and creative experimentation. A Berlin Community Radio [INCUBATOR] resident for their 2017 edition, she now hosts a monthly show on Cashmere Radio. "Open Sources" is focused on linking folk and traditional music with contemporary musical experiments. Her work has been presented in various institutions across Asia, Australia and Europe such as CTM festival, KW (Berlin), Ars Electronica (Linz), Dommune (Tokyo) and MUMA (Melbourne).

Lo Kristenson is a swedish composer. In their creative practice and in collaboration with other musicians, Kristenson constantly seeks to question norms and examine how prevailing structures affect the expression of music. Since 2018, Kristenson has collaborated with Damkapellet, a musician collective that highlights and performs music by composers who define themselves as women or transgender, from all eras. Lo Kristenson, Norwegian duo Vilde & Inga, and violist Tove Bagge are developing methods for approaching composition and collaboration from a non-hierarchical relationship between composer and musician. Together with Julija Morgan, she creates graphic scores to explore the relationship between image and sound and to open up for improvisation. Furthermore, Kristenson has collaborated with Gustaf Sjökvist's Chamber Choir, the artist Annika Liljedahl and the MalvaKvartetten.In 2018, Kristenson graduated from the Master's Programme in Composition at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm, where she studied with Karin Rehnqvist, among others. Her work has been presented at established platforms for experimental music such as Fylkingen in Stockholm and the Artipelag art gallery, the Sound of Stockholm festival, Only Connect (NO) and KLANG festival (DK).
