Düsseldorf composer and sound performer Miki Yui is known for her minimalist organic soundscapes that unfold with narrative vigour. In her concert performance Resonate!, she and her musician friends Laure Boer, Echo Ho, and Diane Barbé collect real tones and sounds from the theatre’s surroundings to transmute them to grand music in an improvisatory setting. The subsequent solo concert evokes the co-existence of space, body, and sound with hypnotic sounds that create images and emotions in the head and the gut.
