Parisian-born Félicia Atkinson is a visual artist, an experimental musician and the co-publisher of the independent imprint Shelter Press/curatorial platform Argument with Bartolomé Sanson. Her work deals with the topics of improvisation, fiction, instant composition, noise, abstraction and poetry. Her music is composed of concrete music, asmr voices, electronics, field recordings, improvisation with guitar and piano, abstract distortions and infra bass.
Félicia’s recent album Hand in Hand has generated a great deal of curiosity, excitement and intrigue, with Fact Magazine writing “the dying bleat of obsolete technology, the crack and stutter of her own voice, the atonal clatter of intuitively-played instruments – and sculpts them into flawless vignettes that lodge themselves deep in the psyche. Like the dystopian science fiction it references, Hand in Hand is bewitching, intense, meditative and at times, deeply unsettling.”
