Iris Garrelfs performs live, often using her voice as raw material, which she transmutes into machine noises, choral works or “granules of electroacoustic babble and glitch, generating animated dialogues between innate human expressiveness and the overt artifice of digital processing” as the Wire Magazine put it.
That said, many performances also incorporate other sounds, and some also use images. A vital part of her performance work, be it using voice or using other source material, is improvisation and the incorporation of random elements, the ephemeral fragility and risk implied in giving up control to the moment, a sonic singularity. Of equal interest is a spatial experience, sound unbound, for which reason she prefers multi-channel set ups.
