Lola and Yukao Meet
Performance: Generative Nights
LYM is a couple of European artists, who explores the association of free hand drawing through interactive digital graphics with augmented electric cello, voice and urban and organic soundscapes. Ambitious, beautiful and inspirational, LYM performance opens the way to a new approach for live digital graphics where the graphic artist can combine imaginative graphical expression with instrumental music performance. Lola Ajima's soundscapes build on urban or industrial sounds and transform them into calm and intimate sound layers. Her cello/bass strokes sculpt melodies and sounds about birth, loss, fear, tenderness, and sadness. The emotive graphics of Yukao Nagemi reflect a world of fantasies, dreams, and inner visions. They combine amorphous human shapes with strange creatures and ornamental strokes and follow the line of the sound improvisation.
