Aimée Portioli, also known as Grand River, is a Dutch-Italian composer, poly-instrumentalist and producer based in Berlin. While mainly connected to the fields of electronic music and sound design, her compositions transcend these genres. Her work is known equally for her film scores as for her experimental and ambient projects. Influenced by classical minimal music, Grand River’s work integrates a large variety of sound structures and symphonic calculations, often blurring the lines between traditional composition and research-based modernism. Aimée runs her own audio agency TapTempo Studio, and the experimental music label One Instrument.
Marco Ciceri is an Italian media artist. He starts his career in 2010 doing stage design and live visuals commissioned by festivals and musicians. After a short experience at London’s Marshmallow Laser Feast studio, he completes his studies at the University of Bolzano with an audio video installation called “Reality”. In 2015, he joins the Berlin-based collective Pfadfinderei.
Grand River and Marco C present an audio-visual performance where natural and synthetic realms coexist harmoniously. The work results in an illusive experience where analogue and computer generated elements, both in audio and video, don’t compete with each other but instead create a mutually inclusive, conjunctively fluctuating human artifice.
