CLARA DE ASÍS, a guitarist, composer and performer originally from Spain and now based in France, has developed a non-conventional and personal instrumental approach; with longstanding interest in minimalist frameworks, spacial auscultation and temporal suspension. She uses different combinations of materials and sound sources, with a main focus on guitar. The concert in Akusmata is a solo performance for acoustic guitar, microphones and objects.

In Akusmata Sähkökitarakvartetti also premiered a new composition for four electric guitars, written specifically for the occasion:

Clara de Asís: ‘Everyday less, less everyday’. The work explores special tunings, lowercase tones and harmonic interference in three gradual transitions.
