Biliana Voutchkova - violin, voice

Biliana Voutchkova is a dynamic, thoroughly engaged interdisciplinary artist, violinist, composer-performer, improvisor and curator with highly individual, unconventional artistic language. Through the prism of listening, her early training in classical music and the years of development as contemporary artist-performer, she explores states of spontaneity and intuitive resonance embodied in her multifaceted activities. Her work spans the widest possible range of sound, vision, movement and includes concert performances of improvisation, contemporary composition and original site specific work, exhibitions, long durational / multidisciplinary performances, audiovisual works and installation formats with focus on the interconnection between inner world and sound space.

Based in Berlin, Biliana works as a soloist, with her groups Voutchkova/ Thieke duo and Jane in Ether, and with renowned ensembles such as the Splitter and Trickster Orchestras, United Berlin, Ensemble Modern, Solistenensemble Kaleidoskop, etc.
Biliana is the founder and curator of the DARA String Festival, SHAPE+ Platform artists for 2022/2023 and a recent recipient of the German Residency Stipend at Cité des Arts / Paris, the Composition Stipend from the Berliner Senate, grands from INM/Berlin, Musikfonds, Deutsche Musikrat, National Culture Fund/Bulgaria and the Trust for Mutual Understanding/New York.

A message from Clayton Thomas:

After 7 years of rocking this sweet beautiful continent, I'm leaving to rock Sydney one more time.

The relocation would not be right without a 2 day party where i can hug and kiss you all and dance like a maniac and play a marathon of awesome music. As you do.

Biliana Voutchkova: violin
Her constant research as a creative artist spans the widest possible range of sound and movement and extends her sonic, physical and technical capacities evolving into the development of a highly individual artistic musical language.

As much inspired by the minimalism of Steve Reich as by the electronic deconstructions of Squarepusher.
