Federico Reuben is a composer, sound artist and live-electronics performer based in London. His work challenges conventional relationships between composer, performer and audience through imagined performance practices, collaborations and modes of sonic representation and production. He plunders, combines and alters cultural objects (recordings, live performances, scores, etc.) through digital technology to produce amorphous and absurd sound worlds. He is interested in how through sound, affect can be transferred, modulated and distorted. His work has been described as a ‘house of mirrors’ — a space where expectations are playfully distorted, where the bizarre and ridiculous are preferred over the ordinary, and where self-reflection is understood only through humour.
