Performing Trajectories

As a collaborative duo which focuses on spatial and performative realizations of ultrasonic signals, Seiji Morimoto and Liz Allbee perform a series of experiments: examining the relationships between architecture, body and materials (physical, visual and acoustic).

Seiji Morimoto
Born in Tokyo, studied musicology at the Kunitachi College of Music, graduating in 1996. During this period he began to play the electronic pieces by John Cage and his own sound performances. Since then he has been creating sound performances, installations and videos. In 2003 Morimoto moved to Berlin, has performed and exhibited in many international festivals including transmediale in Berlin, Experimental Music Festival in Munich. He is interested in the uncertain acoustic appearances between usual objects, for example water and stones, and the technical medium.

Liz Allbee
Liz Allbee is a composer-performer who works with the imaginarchic potential of sonic material. Recurring themes in her work include embodiments & extensions - relationships between human player, musical instruments, everyday sound objects, and high & low technologies - as well as basic instrument building and strategies for DIY spatialization. She is fascinated by the guttural, proto-linguistic qualities of musical voices. She performs often with her trumpet, quad-trumpet, voice, and electronics. She has performed at Maerzmusik, Darmstadt, CTM, Huddersfield, Donaueschingen, Ostrava Days, Serralves, Bolzano Museum of Fine Art, Berlin JazzFest, Wien Modern, and Berghain, among others.
