Jannah Quill is a Sydney and Melbourne based artist whose experimental approach to the uncasing of electrical processes manifests in installation, performance and recorded sound. In her live performances, she sculpts cracked everyday electronics into pulsating, beguiling and menacing fields of static and tone. Her approach to sound-making is heavily influenced by her interest in dance and club music apparatus and the ways in which this can blend with experimental, improvisatory and collaborative music.
Jannah’s music and art practice embraces ordinary digital interfaces and technological machines as materials to generate new experiences reinterpreted from the intended consumer use of the digitally banal. In her hands, solar panels generate audio signal from off-the-shelf lighting products; a laptop’s text-to-speech function becomes vocal samples on thumping techno driven tracks; and game development programs are used to create installations of deconstructed digital imagery.
