Mixed Sound Personnel

Aesthetics

Mixed Sound Personnel (MSP) is an ensemble comprised of voice, percussion and electronics. This specific constellation gives the artists the possibility, through the presence of the building blocks of communication such as
breath, words, voice and the natural strength of rhythm, to communicate with the public. At the same time, MSP
uses these elements of musical deconstruction in order to highlight new contemporary art. Their performance concentrates on direct contact with the public, artistic provocation and the will to bring the listener in the performative result. The musical program of MSP holds contemporary experimental compositions and electro-acoustical improvisations.
