Marta Tiesenga

Interdisciplinary Artist, Multi-instrumentalist, Composer, Animator

Marta Tiesenga is an interdisciplinary artist, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and animator. In her work, she explores and experiments with intersections between music cognition, music theory, repetition, composition, language and nonverbal communication, transience, and experience. She works with images/sound/performance and strives to find an encompassing synthesis between media with inter-sensory art. To do this, she pushes the boundaries of score-making and interpretation. Marta draws shapes, contours, and gestures that have congeneric and extrageneric relation to both the topography of spaces and to familiar musical notation. They explore how atypical instructions are interpreted by performers negotiating this interpretation in real time.
