Helena Gough

Helena Gough is an English sound artist currently living in Berlin. Her work initially focused upon the collection and manipulation of 'real-world' sound material and the exploration of its abstract properties. Occasional deviations into synthetic and instrumental sources are now developing into more prominent ingredients. Each new sound-space is created by taking everything possible from the tiniest element, working to make something from nearly nothing. This reduction in means yields a density and richness of results.As a solo (laptop) player she presents her music live on a regular basis, and is also a member of various improvising electro-acoustic ensembles involving musicians such as Lee Patterson, Andrea Neumann and Rhodri Davies. Her live sets are intended for dark spaces and involve multi-layering and improvisation with her sound materials in order to create a unique environment for each new performance. Studio collaborations are currently underway with sound artists Esther Venrooy and Zimoun, piano duo Duordort and cellist Anton Lukoszevieze. Her debut solo album was released at the beginning of 2007 by the London based label Entr’acte, followed by a second album in June 2010.
