Zhao / Sanz [NOIJZU]

Bass Clarinet, Computer Music, Electronics, Noise, No Input

Physical musicality is evoked by a habitat, which foreshadows diverse sound spaces. A musical examination focuses on recognition of domesticated
and undomesticated sounds, ideologies, networking senses and physical entities. Each sound identifies itself, through varied behaviours.

Noijzu is a Swiss experimental unit formed by Shuyue Zhao and Luis Sanz. The duo focuses on acoustic sounds and computer-generated sonic entities. Noijzu blends bass clarinet with digital signals, the result consists of extreme acoustic dynamics, complex and hyperreal textures, ranging from minimal to extreme and confrontational sound expressions. Noijzu's sound has been described as "a symphony of fragmented noise".

Noijzu's music has been performed and diffused across France, Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, Switzerland, Myanmar, Indonesia, Java, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam and Thailand.
