Voice, Pipa & Electronics.
Duo with Sophia Shen
Apartment D is a Bay area based electro-improv duo that explores sound and space by combining live electronic processing and experimental performance of voice and pipa during improvisation.
Ingibjörg Friðriksdóttir brings a background of both experimental electronic music and vocal training from Iceland. Sophia Shen combines her traditional Chinese pipa playing techniques with her new approaches to the instrument. The unique soundscape and the emotional depth that the duo creates are a result of an exchange and convergence from two very contrasting musical backgrounds and cultures.
