In their research, Anelena Toku and Carla Boregas, from the duo FRONTE VIOLETA, seek to relate to the natural environment not as a setting for their performance but as a way to dilute human protagonism. Thus, the artists search for nature’s subjective manifestations experience and evoke this memory that goes beyond matter. For this research, the duo will get in touch with the Swiss landscape, both natural and cultural, to awaken sensitivity through a poetic-aesthetic dialogue with the environment. The artists intend to delve into experimental sound and visual processes, using field studies, composition with synthesizers, field recordings, video documentation, and image manipulation.
FRONTE VIOLETA [BR] is a duo from São Paulo, formed by multidisciplinary artist Anelena Toku and musician and sound artist Carla Boregas. Since 2015, they’ve been developing an experimental investigation of sound related to other senses and languages. Drawing on different media, the duo creates immersive and multisensorial projects in which they combine experimental electronic and electroacoustic music compositions alongside other practices such as video, live performance, installation, site-specific, and sound dramaturgy. Among their works are the site-specific sound installation «What Is Not/O Que Não Está», commissioned by CTM Festival and Deustchlandfunk Kultur, the audiovisual piece «Lapso», and «CLARÃO», commissioned by Festival Novas Frequências in 2020 and formed by an audiovisual piece and an incense. Their latest album, «Flam», was released in 2018 by the Japanese label Depth of Decay.
