YLIA x SOFÍA CRESPO LIVE A/V

Ylia is a producer and dj whose sets and live shows move agile and safe between different genres, sometimes more abstract and slow, others more direct and danceable. She has published singles on labels such as Hivern, Lapsus, Super Utu, Sinhilo, Tofistock among others and at the end of 2020 he published her first feature length ‘Dulce Rendición’ in Paralaxe Editions.

Owner of the Animah Records label, she works on collaborative projects with Phran (People You May Know), and with Darío del Moral, member of Pony Bravo and Fiera, under the name of Bola Del Desierto. She also accompanies Niño de Elche live at the synthesizers, keyboards and electronics.

She will play new material not yet released in an audiovisual show curated by MIRA together with Sofía Crespo, an artist who works with a huge interest in biology-inspired technologies.

One of the main focuses of Crespo’s attention is the way in which organic life uses artificial mechanisms to simulate itself and evolve, which implies the idea that technologies are a biased product of the organic life that created them and not a completely separate object. Crespo examines the similarities between AI imaging techniques and the way humans creatively express themselves and cognitively recognize their world.
