Thea Farhadian is a composer based in San Francisco and Berlin. She comes from the background of new contemporary music and works primarily with free improvisation, and live electronic processing using the software program, Max/MSP. Her solo work integrates extended techniques, microtonality, and sound-based material in what Touching Extremes calls “..fumes of disassembled harmony and dissonant refractions.”

“Integrating a violin inside a Max/MSP-based interactive system, multi-disciplinary artist and teacher Thea Farhadian – a former student with various luminaries of improvisation and electronic composition – lets us inhale fumes of disassembled harmony and dissonant refractions. What separates her from the typical “just-plug-and-let’s-see-what-happens” tedium-transmitting specimens is the ability in rendering the most absurd-sounding complications with sensible unambiguity. “
