Stavanger born, Berlin based vocalist Stine Janvin explores and challenges the possibilities of working with human voice in music composition and performance in a unique way. Her recent work is focussed on imitation and abstract storytelling through sound collages inspired by a variety of genres and traditions of electronic music, sound poetry, folk music and languages of various peoples, birds and animals. Fake Synthetic Music is an audiovisual vocal performance exploring spatial, psycho- and otoacoustics combined with optical illusions from lights, smoke and mirrors; an imitation and tribute to past and present creators of electronic music dealing with space, melodic and rhythmic sequences and deconstructed rave / high-frequency exhaustion for voice, echo and spatial distribution. As a result, the immersive performance with a touch of post-humanist aesthetics blurs the lines between organic and synthetic, real and illusory.
