BEAST welcomes Scottish composer Louise Rossiter, whose work is enjoying a growing international following. Working specifically for the immersive BEASTdome loudspeaker system, she will present a world premiere based on the work of infographic pioneer Fritz Kahn, whose work reimagined the structures and functions of the human body as machinery. Alongside other works, the programme features German artist Valentina Vuksic’s Tripping Through Runtime, which merges music with the frontiers of cybersecurity and hacking. Using pickups to capture the electromagnetic emissions of her computer, she uses these signals not for illicit purposes, but rather to create a unique and surprising music.
