featuring: Shadwa Ali, Natascha Sadr Haghighian, Brenna Murphy, Camille Norment, Claudia Robles-Angel, Alba Triana We are happy to announce the fourth issue of grapefruits, presenting six female* composers and sound artists with different approaches towards sound installations: The work of Shadwa Ali is characterised by a playful reflexion of human psychology. Her sound-based installations examine inter-human relations as well as the relationship between people and their environment, for which she uses electronic sounds, field recordings and other types of media. In Natascha Sadr Haghighian’s installation Ankersentrum (surviving in the ruinous ruin) the whistle forms the audible center being a musical instrument as well as an instrument of protest. Portland-based Brenna Murphy creates surreal, and participatory spaces where protagonists are encouraged to wander and explore. Through her works you will step into another state of mind. In her installation Camille Norment deals with tension and with the euphoric and traumatic effects of sound by exploring the music of glass. Claudia Robles-Angel turns the human body into a musical and visual instrument by implementing biofeedback methods into her multimedia installations and performances. Alba Triana is a Colombian composer, currently residing in Miami, who has more recently focused on creating inaudible sound installations. Enjoy reading! grapefruits is a fanzine about female* composers and sound artists, originating from students of the master programme Klang und Realität at the Institute for Music and Media at the RSH Düsseldorf. The title refers to Grapefruit, a book by Yoko Ono published in 1964, who saw grapefruits as a hybrid of lemons and oranges, a metaphor for her own identity — always being in-between. Appearing twice a year, the first issue was released in summer 2019. The authors, varying from issue to issue, choose the artists they are going to interview and write about by personal interest, always having in mind different genres in the art and pop context as well as a broad international spectrum, including contemporary artists as well as early pioneers. For each issue the authors define a topic which combines the diverse characters, in the same time emphasizing the different understanding each one has on that specific topic. grapefruits focuses on women*, or people who identify as female*, because we, the authors of grapefruits, feel that they are affected by a lack of visibility – historically and at present. Using the gender asterisk, we want to make other genders and gender identities visible and include them typographically, representing inter-, non-binary and trans people.
