Llull Machines meet pianist Maya Dunietz

Llull Machines was founded by artist Danil Gertman and musician Grundik Kasyansky who create audio-visual artefacts with live digital drawings/projections along with live electronic music. Neither “live animation,” nor “live drawing with musical accompaniment,” nor “visuals to accompany electronic music,” these artefacts are played with all ten fingers on an iPad app that resembles an electronic musical instrument – part synthesizer, part sampler.

Danil Gertman primarily sees himself as a traditional painter, but he also works in installation, performance, animation, design, architecture, and their various combinations. In 2008, he was awarded the Young Artist Prize in Art and Design by the Ministry of Culture and Sport of Israel.

Grundik Kasyansky is a London-based artist and electronic musician who works in experimental improvisation, live installation, and audio collage. He also designs sound for dance, theatre, and film. He wrote poetry before switching to electronic music and it remains deeply influential on his current practice. He is a founding member of the Israeli experimental electronic duo Grundik and Slava. His recent releases include “Workshop Concert” on Matchless Records (with Eddie Prevost, Jenny Allum, Ute Kanngiesser, Dimitra Lazaridou-Chatzigoga, and Daichi Yoshikawa) and “The Fog” on Dromos Records (with pianist Sebastian Lexer).

Maya Dunietz is a composer, musician, and sound artist based in Israel whose work ranges from composing for ensembles and choirs, performing as a pianist and singer, and creating sound installations. She founded the Givol Choir, an experimental vocal ensemble and is a member of the band “Habiluim.” Her work has been presented at venues including the Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2014), Arnolfini, UK (2013), and the Swiss Pavilion at the Venice Biennale (2011). Dunietz’s solo exhibition at the Center for Contemporary Art was called “Sound Requires a Medium” and took place in early 2015.
