«Music For Violin, Guitar and Analog Tape» — The first live collaboration between Austrian avant-violinist Mia Zabelka and Andras Fekete of the DC maximum minimalist collective BOAT BURNING will feature violin and drone guitar with live sound processing via a vintage German reel-to-reel tape recorder. With Jonathan Matis (Boat Burning, DC Improvisers Collective (DCIC)) on keyboards.

Mia Zabelka, sound artist, violinist and vocalist from Vienna, with czech, jewish and french familial background, lives in the Austrian region of southern Styria. As an experimental musician and improviser she has developed a unique language based on the de- and reconstruction of the violin’s sonic possibilities, expanding the instrument using live electronic devices and innovative performance techniques. She studied music and composition at the University of Music and Performing Arts and the Conservatory of Music in Vienna, creating a foundation on the basis of which she continues to construct and explore the limits of sound and music in a language entirely her own. The violin, voice and her own body transform into sound bodies which are at once organic and primal, screaming, lyrical, composed and explosive. In 2007 Mia Zabelka founded the Klang.Haus, a centre for sound and interdisciplinary art at her house in southern Styria. The klang.haus is a meeting point for international and local artists and hosts the Klang.Zeit festival four times a year.

Since 2009 Mia Zabelka is the artistic director of Phonofemme Vienna, an international festival of female improvised electronic music and sound art. Mia Zabelka is currently collaborating in Duos with Lydia Lunch, Audrey Lauro, Micromelancolié, Philippe Petit and Zahra Mani, with video artist Mia Makela and in Trios with Meinread Kneer and Andreas Willers, in Mia Zabelka Trio featuring Pavel Fajt / Johannes Frisch, and in Trio Blurb featuring John Russell / Maggie Nicols.
