Biliana Voutchkova - violin, voice
Biliana Voutchkova is a dynamic, thoroughly engaged interdisciplinary artist, violinist, composer-performer, improvisor and curator with highly individual, unconventional artistic language. Through the prism of listening, her early training in classical music and the years of development as contemporary artist-performer, she explores states of spontaneity and intuitive resonance embodied in her multifaceted activities. Her work spans the widest possible range of sound, vision, movement and includes concert performances of improvisation, contemporary composition and original site specific work, exhibitions, long durational / multidisciplinary performances, audiovisual works and installation formats with focus on the interconnection between inner world and sound space.
Based in Berlin, Biliana works as a soloist, with her groups Voutchkova/ Thieke duo and Jane in Ether, and with renowned ensembles such as the Splitter and Trickster Orchestras, United Berlin, Ensemble Modern, Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop, etc.
