Katerina Loschinina has a background in mathematics and investment banking as well as in organising art performances and art festivals. Katerina contributes with project management and mathematical know-how.
KIMA was part of the Incloodu festival at Rich Mix – Deaf Arts Festival. We have presented an installation in collaboration with Robert Jack’s vibration chair. Audience could sit on the chair, sing into the microphones and experience sound as vibration through the surface of the chair and in visual form on the screen.
In the evening KIMA performance featured Nao Masuda – percussion, Jonathan Cope – voice, and Evgenia Emets – voice.
KIMA was setup with two microphones for two sound inputs, used by up to two people at a time. Two sets of headphones present an immersive sound design: each one of the participants can hear one another as well as beautiful spatial arrangements – as if being in a large hall with wonderful acoustics.
Participants experience a real-time visualisation of their sonic collaboration – expressed in cymatic pattern projected on the screen.
