Helena Gough

Helena Gough is an English sound artist living in Berlin. Her work involves the collection and manipulation of 'real world' sound material and the exploration of its abstract properties. Sine tone generators and instrumental sources induce occasional deviations from this theme. Each new sound-space is created by taking everything possible from the tiniest element, working to create something from nearly nothing. This reduction in means yields a richness of results. She plays live on a regular basis, both as a solo performer and in numerous improvising ensembles. Studio collaborations are currently underway with Dutch composer Esther Venrooy and Swiss sound artist Zimoun. Her debut solo album was released at the beginning of 2007 by Entr’acte, and a limited edition 3” CD is due out on Con-V in 2009.
