AVR010 / PRIFMAAR
Emilia Monin, known as AVR010 is an argentinian musician and producer. Bachelor in music & technology from the Quilmes’ university in Buenos Aires. Her productions are filled with a freedom spirit, where labelling doesn’t have a place, so that all possibilities that electronic music provides can be explored in an experimental way. In her creative process she uses samples recorded with Tascam, which are later cropped and edited, also owning and using voices found in filmic series, mixing them with melodic and rhythmic loops. During 2019, living in Berlin, she finished production of her first EP Forget about this record, edited through the argentinian label Isla Visión. This album of an electronic profile, travels between the use of samples, digital composition and analog synthesis. In 2021, she was selected by the national open call developed by INAMU (National Music Institute of Argentina) which paved the way for her to participate in Artlab’s Artist-In-Residence Programme in collaboration with British Council’s program Amplify D.A.I.
Mercedes Invernizzi Oviedo is a multimedia artist, activist, performance and communicator born in Cuba. She studied the Multimedia Arts career in Argentina’s National University of the Arts (UNA).

AVR010’s first live performance meets PRIFMA’s terrenal & fantastic live visuals. Light travels through little translucent sculptures simulating crystals, forming a cellular landscape that is explored and registered with a webcam. The footage is intervened live with digital techniques while a giant LED screen contains the mix of samplers and synthesizers executed by AVR010.
