2203 Tarek Atoui Performance Susana Santos Silva

An important current running along and across Tarek Atoui’s sound experimentations is collaboration. A great majority of his work involves and evolves through participation of others. These can be designers, builders, musicians, field recordist, listeners. It is often the case that his installations offer themselves as very direct relational platforms as they can be activated by the audiences and other artists. For the exhibition Waters’ Witness in Serralves, sound artist Alan Affichard, a group of Portuguese musicians and artists as well as students from art schools, all are invited to interact and dialogue with the works installed. Along with collaborative and educational workshops, performances are organized throughout the entire period of the exhibition and artists able to engage with a diversity of sounds inhabiting the exhibition at different stages, progressing from its winter awakening up to the midsummer demise.

Susana Santos Silva is a Portuguese trumpeter, improviser and composer based in Stockholm, Sweden.

With a singular artistic approach that comes out of a comprehensive spectrum of influences, from classical and contemporary music to jazz and textural sound art, she is interested in stretching the possibilities of the instrument, exploring new ways of expression within music, as well as dissolving the boundaries between composition and improvisation.

Besides her solo practice, she has been working with her bands Impermanence and Life and Other Transient Storms and with collaborative projects with Kaja Draksler and Torbjörn Zetterberg.

She has been playing with an array of different bands/projects and with musicians such as Anthony Braxton, Fred Frith, Evan Parker, Joëlle Léandre, Mat Maneri, Paul Lovens, Hamid Drake, Mats Gustafsson, Lotter Anker, Sten Sandell, among many others.

Susana is now attending a Master program in Electroacoustic Composition at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm.
