Anaïs Maviel’s work as a vocalist and composer focuses on the function of art to address Relation. With sound, she intends to lay common grounds for utopian futures, connecting intimacy and subconscious narratives with collective and large scale principles. She navigates song, choral, instrumental music and staging with a strong connection to cosmologies of sound and speech rooted in oral traditions such as mantra and ring shout. Her works hold space for transformation. With traditional and experimental approaches, Anaïs investigate the power of sound to shape reality. She has collaborated with William Parker, Meshell Ndegeocello, Pauline Kim Harris, Alarm Will Sound, Okwui Okpokwasili and Stefani Jemison, among many.
Mimi is a sound artist whose practice lies at the intersection of experimental/improvised music and audio art. Interested in deconstructing and remodeling sonic material, she assembles mixed sources [synthesis, voice, field recording] into new immersive weavings. Her creative process involves chance/random layering as well as methodical/algorithmic processes, aiming to promote the interplay between logic and ambiguity.
