With a wide variety of different instruments from body percussion through bells to the vibraphone, percussionist Vanessa Porter creates hypnotic soundscapes ranging from delicate beauty to violent eruptions. Tonight a new work commissioned from the important composer Georges Aperghis has its first performance.
As a percussion teacher's daughter, Vanessa Porter inherited a love of rhythm, so it was not long before she started playing the vibraphone, drums and mallets herself. In the meantime, the artist from Laupheim in Baden-Württemberg has completed her studies in London and Stuttgart and is now touring Europe, Asian and America – sometimes with creative solo programmes, sometimes in an acclaimed duo with her sister or in the Daidalos Percussion Quartet, which she founded together with fellow students. Improvisation, electronics and performance art are as much a particular of her experimental programmes as her cooperation with contemporary composers.
