Vancouver Experimental Theremin Orchestra with Scratch Theremin by Animal Lover
For the performance at IF’11, The Vancouver Experimental Theremin Orchestra (VETO) is collaborating with Animal Lover to interpret visual scores created by Iannis Xenakis (1922-2001) a composer and engineer recognized for his contributions to electronic music.
VETO was formed by the participants in a theremin building workshop held at VIVO, Vancouver, in the summer of 2011. VETO is the only theremin orchestra in Canada, and one of a few worldwide. Each member of the orchestra has a uniquely tuned instrument which contributes to the richness of the sound created by this ensemble. VETO has performed for Signal + Noise Festival, VIVO, 2011, and will be performing in the upcoming Vancouver New Music’s “Random Elements – a Celebration of Iannnis Xenakis”.
Scratch Theremin is a project by Animal Lover, a collaboration between Julie Andreyev and her two companion dogs, Tom and Sugi. For Scratch Theremin, Andreyev works with Tom using interactive software to produce a live collaborative improvisational interspecies work using human and canine gesture to create an audio visual performance.
