jelena glazova is a sound/visual artist and poet from riga, latvia. she works in interdisciplinary areas of contemporary art, combining image, poetic text, experimental sound and installation in her pieces and performances. her sphere of activity in experimental music is drone/noise, usually constructed from processed vocals. as a conceptual artist she relies on her voice as a generator, heavily altering it and manipulating through digital processing. she considers this kind of deconstruction the vocal element as a way of expressing unpronounced speech – connecting it with her practice as a poet.
as a visual artist, jelena glazova works a lot with physicality, extending her sound art paradigm. she has performed at experimental music and sound art festivals – noise and fury (moscow, russia), sound around kaliningrad (kaliningrad, russia), vilnius noise week (vilnius, lithuania), skanu mežs (riga, latvia), art’s birthday (stockholm, sweden), vienna art week (vienna, austria), poetronica (moscow, russia) and several others. jelena glazova was a guest composer at elektronmusikstudion ems stockholm (2013) and the WORM experimental art centre in rotterdam (2013) etc. she has collaborated with a number of artists and poets, among them derek holzer (us/de), alexei borisov (ru), peter kirn (us/de), ::vtol:: dmitry morozov (ru), edgars rubenis (lv/nl) and others.
