Andrea Parkins is composer, sound/installation artist and electroacoustic musician who engages with interactive electronics as a compositional/performative process, and explores strategies related to Fluxus’ ordered, yet ephemeral activities. An integral participant of the New York sound art and experimental music scene, and worldwide – she is especially known for her pioneering gestural/textural approach to her electronically-processed accordion and customized live sound processing. Described as a "sound-ist," of "protean," talent by The New York Times music critic Steve Smith, her laptop electronics and Fender-amped accordion create sonic fields of lush harmonics, noisy concretized disruption, and sculpted/soaring electronic feedback.
Parkins' works include electroacoustic and electronic music compositions, multi-diffusion sound installations, and sound for dance, video and intermedia performance. This work has been presented at the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Kitchen, Diapason sound gallery, and Experimental Intermedia; and arts spaces/festivals worldwide, including Mexico City’s First International Sound Art festival; Museet Samtidskunst in Roskilde; Unsound in Krakow; q-02 in Brussels, NEXT in Bratislava; and Cyberfest in St. Petersburg. Parkins also records and performs internationally as a solo artist and has collaborated with innovators such as Otomo Yoshihide, David Watson, John Butcher, Wilco guitarist Nels Cline, and Lê Quan Ninh, among many others. Her recordings have been published by Important Records, Atavistic, and Creative Sources. On an ongoing basis, Parkins develops and performs her primary project, a series of live audiovisual works inspired by Rube Goldberg's circuitous machines. Parkins has received support for her work from American Composers Forum, New York State Council on the Arts, French-American Cultural Exchange, Q-02 Workspace for Experimental Music and Sound Art (Brussels), Meet the Composer, Harvestworks Digital Media Arts Center, and the Frei und Hanseastadt Hamburg Kulturbehoerde in Germany.
