Day 2 - 13 April: BASS - Presentation by Ágnes Nagy : Free event

Ágnes Nagy is a Hungarian-born producer of music and sound design. She completed her studies at the London Metropolitan University gaining a BSc Music Technology Audio Systems diploma. She has gained experience in Audio Recording, Sound Synthesis, DSP Programming in MAX/MSP and Csound programming, Digital Signal Processing and Psychoacoustics during her university years, and frequently utilizes aspects of this experience in the creation of her sounds. Her music is influenced by a diverse range of styles such as electronic dance, industrial, experimental, ambient, dub and urban. During her 10 years folk dance experience, she developed a deep passion for dance and performance, which became her inspiration for creating music and sound for movement and story.

Her highest achievements are:

Her Hörspiel, Yvette’s New World, was played at the first New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival and Conference in 2009 in New York, where she also took part in Douglas Geers’ concerto, Sweep, as a member of the Laptop Orchestra. She had a presentation on Bass Synthesis in 2012 at the Red Sonic festival as well as took part in the sound diffusion project.

Besides teaching, she creates sound banks and occasionally DJs her own music.
