Biliana Voutchkova

Biliana Voutchkova, violin
Biliana Voutchkova is a thoroughly engaged composer-performer/interpreter whose work combines regular performances of major solo violin/ensemble works, new works by contemporary composers often written for her, and improvisation. Her research as a creative improviser spans the widest possible range of sound/music/movement and extends the sonic and technical capacities of her instrument evolving into the development of a highly individual musical language. Biliana lives in Berlin and appears at festivals and concert series worldwide. She works as a soloist and collaborates with the Splitter Orchestra, Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop, Ensemble Modern, Ensembles United Berlin, Mozaik, Zeitkratzer, LUX:NM and Sasha Waltz & Guests, among others. Recent/current projects include solo concerts at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, GAS, Mózg, Moving Music and Radar Festivals, the release of the solo album 'Modus of Raw", the new play “The ocean is closed” with the Zeitkratzer and She She Pop, a collaboration with the Berliner Ensemble and Dutch composer Eef Van Breen, a concerts tour in the USA with Voutchkova/Thieke duo supported by the Goethe Institut, and performances at Cafe Oto, Klangwerkstatt, Documenta14, Wien Modern, Experimental Intermedia and Gent festival. Biliana received the Composition Stipend from the Berliner Senate in 2017 and grands from INM Berlin and the Trust for Mutual Understanding in New York in 2016.

A message from Clayton Thomas:

After 7 years of rocking this sweet beautiful continent, I'm leaving to rock Sydney one more time.

The relocation would not be right without a 2 day party where i can hug and kiss you all and dance like a maniac and play a marathon of awesome music. As you do.
