ART AS A REHEARSAL OF BEHAVIOUR PATTERN
EVERY SOUND IS POLITICALLY CHARGED [...]
Luigi Nono, 1972
Rafaele Andrade [BR/NL] is a music pioneer in the field of modern/experimental music. With a background in Conducting, Composition, Production, Cello, live coding and Sonology, she develops artworks merging these crossovers into innovative practices with the technology, social inclusion, sustainability & fair music distribution. Rafaele has a passion for social initiatives, producing during her young career an orchestra of Brazilian music at 17 years old and at 22, curating a UNESCO project to promote Latin American women composers (Rádio Delas). She is a member of NLCL(Netherlands), iii (Netherlands) and CIM (Brazil) and the creator of Knurl, a reconfiguration of a classic/baroque cello format into a reprogrammable system, a hybrid acoustic and solar-powered.
If we want to change collectively, we have to talk about our individual attitudes.
I'm aware of the marginalization of culture, races and gender in the conventional world. My motivation is to produce qualified content to stimulate the wealth of each living being. I produce artistic projects which engage sustainability, social inclusion in their whole art form's concept, formal technical approaches, aesthetic and production. I respect the diversity of culture, gender, races and aesthetics not just on my works, but mostly in my life as a neighbor, partner, friend or colleague.
