Anna Friz is a sound and media artist who specializes in multichannel radio transmission systems for installation, performance, and broadcast. Since 1998, she has created and presented new audio art and radiophonic works internationally in which radio is often the source, subject, and medium of the work. She also composes atmospheric sound works and sonic installations for theater, dance, film, and solo performance that reflect upon public media culture, political landscapes and infrastructure, time perception, the intimacy of signal space, and speculative fictions. Friz is Assistant Professor in the Film and Digital Media Department of the University of California, Santa Cruz.

Her performance tonight explores the expressive environment of low fidelity signal and physical landscapes, from interference-prone terrestrial radio beacons to sonic distillations of field recordings using radiophonic instruments and transmitters, accompanied by cottage-built electronics, voice, and monochrome photo montage from recent fieldwork in northeastern Iceland and northern Chile.

Afroditi Psarra is a multidisciplinary artist working in the intersection of electronic textiles and physical computing with sound art. Her research focuses on the merge of science fiction ideas with poetic representations and performative practices, traditional crafting methodologies with engineering and electronics, the art and science interaction with a critical discourse in the creation of artifacts.

Psarra’s Lilytronica is a project inspired by folk tradition, pop culture and DIY electronics, utilizing hand-made electronic embroidery in the context of experimental sound performance. The work is based on live improvisation through the use of three embroidered synthesizers with micro controllers, sensors and actuators embedded into fabric.

Chapel Performance Space is located on the fourth floor of the Good Shepherd Center.
