Annie Mahtani presents a programme of multichannel acousmatic works exploring the juxtaposition of real, abstract and surreal soundworlds, diffused live on City’s surround sound system. Mahtani’s work explores space, time, and place and exposes the inherent identities in environmental sounds by amplifying characteristics that are not normally audible to the naked ear.

Programme to include Racines tordues (2019), Aeolian (2016) and Past Links (2008).

Annie Mahtani (UK, 1981) is an electroacoustic composer, sound artist and performer working and living in Birmingham (UK).

Her output encompasses electronic music composition from acousmatic music to free improvisation. As a collaborator, she has worked extensively with dance and theatre, and on site-specific installations. With a strong interest in field recording, her work often explores the inherent sonic nature and identity of environmental sound, amplifying sonic characteristics that are not normally audible to the naked ear. Her music explores abstract and recognizable sound worlds and all the spaces in between. Annie works extensively with multichannel audio both in fixed medium works and in live performance.

Her music has been recognized and performed extensively in concerts and festivals internationally. She has received a number of notable commissions including those from Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, Jazzlines, Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Birmingham Hippodrome, and Rosie Kay Dance Company (for which she is the company composer).

Annie Mahtani is a Senior Lecturer in Music at the University of Birmingham. She is co-director of SOUNDkitchen, a Birmingham-based collective of curators, producers and performers of live electronic music and sound art.
