Matrices of Vision

An evening in two parts: As prelude to the concert ensemble ‘Matrices of Vision’, Tiara Roxanne will perform a live reading.
Influenced by Tiara Roxanne’s research into data colonialism, the piece uses artistic sonification to question a Swedish higher education report which traces student demographics across seven decades.
In place of dominant western twelve-tone tuning, Toll applies Just Intonation (the harmonic series) to highlight the process of data extraction, creative restrictions and bias. As the instruments move up and down the octaves, the data is represented through sound and the piece takes on a tangible, emotional response. What is heard is a refusal to comply to these so-called rational systems. What results, is a sonic narrative that unsettles accepted hierarchies by moving beyond the limitations of these systems: in what Roxanne describes as “a kind of flooding of listening and experiencing, from the body and the spaces that surround the body.”
