Sisterloops is a performative sound art and noise duo with the artists Alexandra Nilsson and Marie Gavois, based in Stockholm, Sweden.
Sisterloops are nasty academics,
strictly wild, brutally feminine,
we are amplified knives.
material – cuts and whines, scratches, bursts and shrieks_
physical – direct action_ savage_
script / lyrical / narrative_
who speaks and who makes noise?_
II: . . . :II
Sound, action and picture are always equal components for Sisterloops.
We expose details and create contradictions, breaks and frictions. We are interested in when the extremely strict, falls in to, and becomes wilderness.
– creating artificial sound space – enlarge and make the sounds visible – bring forward the aggressiveness – the brutality – the sensibility of the specific – manual, analogue loops –
Alexandra Nilsson is a composer and performer based in Stockholm. In her own work she mainly composes and performs with trumpet or other objects and live-electronics. Her work stretches between soundart, noise, electronica and free improvisation. With a background in jazz and folklore, rhythm and improvisation are important elements of her work and performance. The interaction and borderland between acoustic and electronic sound worlds is also of great interest to her.
Marie Gavois is a multimedia-, stage artist and performer based in Stockholm. Her own work materializes issues of economic power and social policy in forms of performing arts, dance, music /sound and literary formations. Poetic politics, labor issues, organization and independence interests her. Her own work is many times minimalist and reduced to the essentials. Lately she also collaborate in duo constellations in certain projects.
