Xavier Velastín Vicencio (xvelastín)
Xavier is a sound artist, sound designer and whale lover whose practice is rooted in voice, agency, structural composition and liveness. He has a background in classical piano, interactive electroacoustic composition and the musicology of club music. His pieces are an eclectic blend of intricately composed atmospheres and visceral, unpredictable performance art. The structural organisation of his performances, whether employing dynamic electronic scores, non-linear chronologies, or human-computer improvisation, is always informed by the fundamental impermanence of the liveness of live performance.
