The year at the 9th annual Music and/as Process conference, held at University of the Creative Arts (Farnham campus), we are very privileged to have two keynote speakers. We are delighted to introduce our second keynote speaker and interdisciplinary composer Iris Garrelfs.
Iris Garrelfs works on the cusp of music, art and technology across improvised performance, multi-channel installation and fixed media projects.
Often using her voice as raw material, performance and compositions have been compared to artists such as Yoko Ono, Henri Chopin, Joan La Barbara, Meredith Monk and Arvo Part. Works have featured internationally, e.g Tate Britain, National Gallery, Onassis Cultural Centre Athens, Visiones Sonores Mexico, Gaudeamus Amsterdam, MC Gallery New York, Musikkens Hus Aalborg. Releases in include “Bedroom Symphonies” on Linear Obsessional and “Breathing Through Wires” on Pan Y Rosas Discos.
Garrelfs convenes the MMus Sonic Arts at Goldsmiths, University of London, where she also co-heads the Sound Practice Research Unit. Elsewhere she is the commissioning editor of the online journal Reflections on Process in Sound.
