M/6 – Entrada limitada ao espaço disponível

Parisian-born artist Félicia Atkinson’s multifaceted work embraces improvisation, science-fiction, composition, chance, noise, abstraction and poetry. Her sound palette draws from the history of electronics, musique concrète, field recordings and improvisation through the use of synthesizers, guitar and piano, abstract distortions, text-sound and infra bass.

Félicia’s recent album, Hand in Hand, has generated a great deal of curiosity, excitement and intrigue, with Fact Magazine writing that Atkinson takes «the dying bleat of obsolete technology, the crack and stutter of her own voice, the atonal clatter of intuitively-played instruments – and sculpts them into flawless vignettes that lodge themselves deep in the psyche. Like the dystopian science fiction it references, Hand in Hand is bewitching, intense, meditative and at times, deeply unsettling.»

She also runs the experimental music label Shelter Press with Bartolomé Sanson.

Félicia Atkinson has played in international festivals such as GRM’s Presence Electronique (Paris, FR), Rewire Festival (Den Hague, NL), Novas Frequências (Rio de Janeiro, BZ), Sound Of Stockholm (Stockholm, SE), Borderline Festival (Athens, NL). She also performed in many art venues including Lisa Cooley Gallery (New York, USA), Palais de Tokyo (Paris, FR), Kunsthal Charlottenbord (Copenhagen, DK).
