Jessica Ekomane

Jessica Ekomane's practice unfolds around music and sound installations. Her compositions seek a physical and cathartic effect alternating between noise and melody, and playing with our perception of rhythmic structures. Her latest project consists of a quadraphonic performance exploring the way our perception of rhythms is affected by the surrounding space, thereby introducing elements of psychoacoustics and gestalt theory. She is one of the Berlin Community Radio [INCUBATOR] residents for their 2017 edition, as well as one of the two chosen participants of this year's Open Port Club residency in Sapporo, Japan.

She has been awarded an Honorary Mention at Ars Electronica 2013 in the category Digital Musics and Sound Art for "Light / Movement", as part of the project Pulse Lab II: Works for Wave Field Synthesis (initiated by Robert Henke [DE]). She also has been selected for the Phonurgia Award 2012 with "Schaperstrasse 24" (in collaboration with Silje Nes [NO]) and is a DAAD scholarship holder.
