Sonia Killmann is a Glasgow-based international composer and multimedia artist from Belgium. For the 2022 edition of Göteborg Art Sounds she will present her audiovisual piece Them! There! Eyes?

Sonia has been exploring the relationship between sound and environment. Her works often involve field recordings, as well as a mixture of live processing and audiovisual music. Combining her background in electronic music, digital media and new music, Sonia is a graduate of the University of Glasgow and went onto to complete her MA in composition at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Sonia is also a versatile saxophone player and an experienced performer in both live electronic and acoustic music across venues in Europe. Aside from performing, she has also showcased her installations in venues, such as the Riverside Museum in Glasgow. In September 2021 Sonia performed Them! There! Eyes? live at Construction Festival in Dnipro (Ukraine). The performance took place at the Palace of Children and Youth. She also showcased this work in February 2021 as part of Sonic Bites.

Them! There! Eyes?
Sonia Killmann’s highly stylised audiovisual work addresses the concept of eye contact as a powerful feature in creating emotional bonds. Consisting of broken up and heavily processed samples of Ella Fitzgerald’s recording of Them There Eyes, merged with synthesizer sounds and field recordings, the singer’s voice becomes unrecognisable as it accompanies extracts of Fritz Lang’s pioneering sci-fi epic, Metropolis.

This concert is curated by Cathie Boyd.
