Sculptress is a celebration of female artists who are reshaping contemporary music by re- examining our past. New approaches to sound, notation and genre play against tributes to early electronic music pioneers, field recordings and the 1950’s golden age of American advertising.
Featuring the sonic investigations of ‘musical scientist’ Nicole Lizée, the enigmatic atmospheres of Anna Thorvaldsdottir and a new composition by the winner of the 2018 Pythia Prize, Rubiks present five premieres paying homage to some of the most innovative creators of the 21st-century and those who have paved the way.
