Freida Abtan is a Canadian multi-disciplinary artist and composer based in London. Her artistic and research interests revolve around inter-sensory composition under computational process. She works with fixed and reactive audiovisual media for concert diffusion, installation, and large-scale multimedia production, as well as with computer vision techniques and sensor-based technologies. Her music, which has been compared to Coil and Zoviet France because of her use of spectral manipulation and collage, falls somewhere in between musique concrète and more contemporary noise music / experimental audio. As well as having created visual shows for and performed with Nurse with Wound, Freida has presented her own sound and visual work at festivals across North America and Europe.
CRiSAP and the Sound Arts Department at LCC co-run a Visiting Practitioners Series of weekly talks at the college, exploring the diverse field of sound arts practice. Each term member of Sound Arts staff curates the series of talks, inviting a number of sound practitioners to share their work.
