The festival will showcase these guests and UVA Faculty and Graduate composers over two concerts: Friday the 21st at The Bridge PAI and Saturday the 22nd at Old Cabell Hall. TechnoSonics is an annual multiday festival that brings composers, performers, and music professionals to Charlottesville.  TechnoSonics is celebrating the 20th year of bringing cutting edge music to the University of Virginia and Charlottesville Virginia. The Telemetry Series, supported by UVA Arts and the Office of the Provost and the Vice Provost for the Arts is always free and open to the public.

Royoko Akama

Akama works with installations and sounds that approach listening situations that magnify silence, time and space. Her sculptural work engages with mundane objects and invisible energies such as magnetism and gravity, employing small and fragile objects such as paper balloons and glass bottles in order to create tiny aural and visual occurrences that embody ‘almost nothing’ aesthetics. She also composes text scores and performs a diversity of alternative scores in collaboration with other artists and musicians.

Akama co-curates ame and co-runs the independent publisher mumei publishing and melange edition.

Selected installations include: the way they are (Yorkshire Sculpture Park, 2019, UK), composition of happiness (Spanien19C, 2019, Denmark), kosetsu (Stedelijk Museum, 2019, Amsterdam), ploughs and harrows (Konfrontation Festival, 2018, Austria), listening with the city (Internationales Musikinstitut Darmstadt, 2018, Germany), odds and ends (Bunkier Sztuki Gallery, 2018, Poland), loiner or (Industrial Museum of Leeds, 2018, UK), Object Migration (Avant Art Festival + Sanatorium Dź wię ku, 2017, Poland) and 1 5 (Uppsala Art Museum, 2016, Sweden)
