After a short break due to the FIBER Festival 2020, we’re back for the final two Online Studio Visits of this year. First we announce our November edition taking place on Tuesday evening November 17: we will meet with sound and visual artists Zeno van den Broek and Pedro Maia. By exploration of different material based production techniques, their audiovisual works layer multiple perceptions of both our physical and virtual reality. Both artists are pushing boundaries for audiovisual expression using both analog and digital processes, often resulting in emergent compositions.
In a physically-distanced-accepted form, FIBER Online Studio Visits are a unique opportunity to gain an insight to artistic making processes and learn about the wide variety of contemporary artistic practises in digital culture. Following the FIBER Festival 2020 we will visit two studios every month, where together with the creators we will explore their work processes and the way they adapt to the current COVID-19 reality.

◉ Zeno van den Broek (NL)
Zeno van den Broek is a Dutch composer and artist. Van den Broek utilises audiovisual means to create site and concept specific works. His trans-disciplinary method has a strong conceptual foundation, originating from a background in architecture, which enables Zeno to comprehend and reveal the richness and complexity of spatial, visceral and physical perception. He works with a characteristic artistic language based on minimalist and fundamental elements such as sine waves, lines, noise and grids. Zeno works with esteemed institutes such as Gaudeamus, LIMA and the Old Church of Amsterdam. He presents his work at venues and festivals such as FIBER Festival, IFFR, Sonic Acts , Rewire and The Louvre. His music has been released by labels such as Moving Furniture Records, Unsounds and The Tapeworm.
◉ Pedro Maia (PT)
Pedro Maia is a Portuguese filmmaker that works predominantly with 16mm and 8mm film, pushing the boundaries and aesthetic of analog cinema by manipulating the raw materials and challenging the traditional process, continually expanding the visual and technological heritage of classic film methods. He worked with numerous musicians – like Vessel, SHXCXCHCXSH, Shapednoise and recently Lucrecia Dalt – to create exhilarating and tactile audiovisual shows. His works (both visual sets and films) have been presented in several (film) festivals and galleries, such as Berlin Atonal, Rewire, Tokyo Contemporary Art Museum, Armenian Centre for Contemporary Experimental Art, MACBA Barcelona, Edinburgh International Film Festival, amongst others.
