Olivia Block creates original sound compositions for concerts, site-specific multi-speaker installations, live cinema, and performance. Her compositions often include field recordings, electronic sounds, and chamber instruments.
Her solo performances include partially improvised pieces for inside piano, electronics, and objects. Through amplification techniques, she brings out timbral qualities of metal, wood and other materials. Block also creates multimedia works for sounds and video.
Block’s surround-sound installations and concerts emphasize the physical frameworks of spaces through their acoustic qualities. All of her sound work reflects her interests in site specificity, “room sounds,” ethnographic sensory practices, and the utilization of found materials.
During her visit to EMS Oliva Block will also perform at Fylkingen on 16 October as part of ROOM40 Openframe.
