PAUCHI SASAKI 

GAMA VI is a solo multimedia performance. GAMA is a three-years-long work in progress started in early 2012 and it focuses on the exploration of the concept of expansion though the development of interactive music instruments. Conceptually, I recognize interconnectivity as the main dynamic happening in all attempts of expansion. I work with poetic images from nature linked to the activity of connection and then I relate them to sound parameters. For example: currents generate movement, connections and great flow of information. In this case tideĀ“s density, force and speed share analogous parameters with sonic masses and these similarities inspire my compositions for both electronics and acoustic instruments. 


PAUCHI SASAKI (Peruvian-Japanese) weaves styles and disciplines in her creative process. Her work reflects a great interest for interdisciplinary research that induces the interaction between artwork, space and audience. She collaborates actively with projects linked to dance, film, theater, installation and multimedia performances. As a performer and composer, she has been invited to several festivals in Peru, USA, Japan, Spain, Chile and Swiss. Pauchi was awarded with two "Best Original Music" awards from the XV International Latinoamerican Film Festival of Lima and the National Film Council of Peru. Pauchi graduated from the Electronic Music and Recording Media MFA program at Mills College, Oakland.
