Hyaena Reich - Agnella Dirigire [alg050]
Hyaena Reich is a portuguese composer and performer.
She develops a body of sound work since 1996. Her work is based in experimentation and improvisation, involving the capture of real life sounds and ambients, as well as sound sequences with uncanny sound sources - metal and wood objects, stones or the exploration of sounds in spaces with specific acoustic characteristics - being afterwards edited and sequenced according to soundtrack-building techniques, breaking the borders between mere experimental music and sound in cinematic space.
She has a background of Film Studies, Sound Engineering and Scriptwriting taken at the Lisbon Conservatory, is daughter to film directors Margarida Cordeiro and António Reis, has studied matters of improvisation, experimentalism and musicology with portuguese experimental pioneers Vitor Rua and Jorge Lima Barreto (Telectu) and has fronted the solo projects Imbolc, ZLKNF and Arraial, being also the head of experimentalist collective Sabotage en Masse.
