DIT IS KUNST: Dear Egle, you speak Dutch only a little, so please tell us in English, where are you from and what are you doing in Holland?
EGLÈ MATUZONYTÈ: I am originally from Lithuania, but been moving around Europe for quite a while now. Before coming here, I was studying Sonic Arts in London. I never really got to like the city, so at some point I decided to move on and ended up in Amsterdam. I am here living and making music, getting involved in different art projects, creating and performing, also, every once in a while working on sonic branding, game sound or film music.
Dit IS KUNST: We understand that you can not disclose the exact nature of your appearance Friday the 19th in Nijmegen, but can you give us a hint as to what we can expect?
EGLÈ MATUZONYTÈ: It is a gesture recognition performance called Ensō, which aims to explore and re-estimate the concept of time and space, and the role of a 'two dimensional' timeline in a music composition. Body movements and gestures are captured by special camera with sensors and converted into digital signals, which automatically form and alter a sound in regard to motion. It lets the sound to be travelling and developing in space along with the performer in movement. The body becomes an instrument, it is an agent, a mediator where time and space meet.
