iris garrelfs is a sound artist and improviser who crosses the boundaries of performance, installation and fixed media. she uses her voice as raw material for conjuring multilayered listening experiences where the voice is transmuted into machine noises, intricate rhythms, choral works, and pulverized into granules of electroacoustic babble and glitch – generating animated dialogues between innate human expressiveness and the overt artifice of digital processing.
her first album for pyr, breathing through wires, is an album of live improvised and processed voice performances recorded in the uk between 2012 and 2014. some were recorded through the mixing desk, others in the room. the titles refer to either event or venue. expect to hear a wide range of sounds and sonic modalities, from aggressive screams to delicate melodies, intricate rhythms to machine noises all constructed from and through live voice in an act of listening.
