KUBOV – 14 August 2014

By Rodrigo  //  Performances  //  No Comments

kubov

KnowUsByOurVelocity (KUBOV) is a duo of violin and electronics. Incorporating minimalist textures and lush sustains as well as harrowing dissonance and distortion, their music ranges from the esoterically tingly to downright disturbing. Their eclectic sonorities are a result of the hybridisation of electronics and acoustic instrument,  with which they explore and combine spaces and places, warping perspective and effecting a sonic escapism.

Both in their final year of phD at the University of Edinburgh, Jess and Emma have been working together since 2011. The duo originated as a collaborative endeavour between composer and performer, and has developed over the years through a compulsion to break away from the traditional boundaries of the discrete roles and to research the potential of this instrumental and creative composite through performance.
