Jelena Glazova  is sound artist artist/visual artist  and a poet from Riga, Latvia. She is working in interdisciplinary areas of contemporary art, combining in her works image, poetic text, experimental sound and installation. Her sphere of activity in experimental music is drone/noise, usually constructed from processed vocals. As a conceptual artist she is primarily using her voice as a generator, heavily altering it and manipulating with a help of digital processing. She considers that type of vocal elements deconstruction as a form of expressing unpronounced speech – connecting it with her practice as a poet. As a visual artist she is often dealing with physicality, which is also a basis of her work as a sound artist. She performed at experimental music and sound art festival Sound around Kaliningrad (Kaliningrad, Russia), Noise and Fury (Moscow, Russia) Vilnius Noise Week (Vilnius, Lithuania), music festival Ska?u Mežs (Riga, Latvia), electronic music festival Art’s Birthday (Stockholm, Sweden) etc. Collaborated with artists and poets – Derek Holzer (US/DE), Alexei Borisov (RU), Edgars Rubenis (LV), Platons Buravickis (LV), VTOL (RU) etc.
