Noa Eshkol’s suite “Right Angled Curves” is featured in “Autopsia,” a program series of four events that explores the interplay between choreography-based video works and new sound scores performed live. The new context-based sound performances explore the potential and constraints of video documentation.
The program raises questions of authenticity and representation. With performance art, dance and choreography at the centre, participating video and sound artists contribute to exploring these methods as well as their results.

Musicians: Astrid Sonne & Xenia Xamanek
Astrid Sonne creates sound collages emerging from organic and digital sound sources. Through her work with viola, samples and computer generated sounds the compositions are characterized by the intensity through simplicity with an aim of balancing constant renewal and repetition. Astrid has been part of various constellations and made her presence felt during the opening concert of this year’s CPH:DOX. Xenia Xamanek Lopez composes through an editing of analogue sounds and field recordings, framing recognizable sounds in unfamiliar environments. She experiments with improvisation as well as strict sequences, seeking new forms and structures. Xenia creates music through her two aliases Equis and C.Cell and as a part of the group Boujeloud. Astrid Sonne and Xenia Xamanek Lopez will join forces to create a sound score for Right Angled Curves. Though the two have followed each other’s work closely through years this will be the first time they create a piece together.
