Agora Collects has ended
From the 21st until the 23rd of June 2013, Agora opens its  entire building and adjacent spaces for Agora Collects, a weekend-long event based on the notions of interaction, collaboration, crossovers and conviviality and that prioritizes experimental formats of interaction with its visitors. The event’s narrative leads the public to create their own routes inside the multiple spaces of Agora, establishing situations where discussions and ideas relevant to the fields of arts, entrepreneurship, food, education and networking are encouraged.

Audrey Chen closes the second day of Agora Collects with a performance driven by voice and cello. Her work delves deeply into a unique version of narrative and non-linear storytelling.

Audrey Chen is a Chinese-American musician who was born into a family of material scientists, doctors and engineers, outside of Chicago in 1976. Parting ways with the family convention, she turned to the cello at age 8 and voice at 11. After years of classical and conservatory training in both instruments, with a resulting specialization in early and new music. She parted ways again in 2003 to begin new negotiations with sound in order to discover a more individually honest aesthetic. Now, using the cello, voice and analog electronics, Chen’s work delves deeply into her own version of narrative and non-linear storytelling.  A large component of her music is improvised and her approach to this is extremely personal and visceral. Her playing explores the combination and layering of a homemade analog synthesizer, preparations and traditional and extended techniques in both the voice and cello. She works to join these elements into a singular ecstatic personal language.
