“Magic.” ArtActs Festival
Radical improvisation – can serve as the description of the work of international women trio NYX, which in dynamic performances offers disquieting and dark stories. Sophie Agnel, Angélica Castelló and Isabelle Duthoit make use of their formal musical education to explore the limits of current experimental music. Piano, electronics, brass instruments, and voice create abrasive contours and sound spaces demanding audience concentration, while also rewarding the listeners with fresh sound collages.
“Of course seeing bodies decomposing looks like a horror film, but if you can get past that, you understand it’s just nature doing its job. It’s beautiful — and it sounds great!”, says Austrian ArtActs Festival about their performance. Visitors of Alternativa can assess this after the Czech premiere themselves.
