Todor Todoroff

Todor Todoroff

Electrical Engineer from the Université Libre de Bruxelles, he received a First Prize and a Higher Degree in Electroacoustic Composition at the Royal Conservatories in Brussels and Mons.

Co-founder and president of ARTeM and FeBeME, professor at ESA-Arts2, he was researcher at Numediart Institute and was Belgian representative of EU-COST actions “Digital audio Effects” and “Gesture Controlled Audio Systems”.

His electroacoustic music shows a special interest for sound spatialisation and research into new forms of interaction and sound transformation. Fascinated by the dialogue with other art forms, he also composes music for film, video, dance, theatre and sound installation. He collaborates since 1998 with Belgian choreographer Michèle Noiret and worked with artists like Marie-Jo Lafontaine, FOAM, Fred Vaillant, and Mario Benjamin. Prize-winner in several international competitions, his music is regularly performed in international festivals.

He received commissions from IMEB, Paris Opera, Art Zoyd, Musiques Nouvelles, ZKM, Festivaal van Vlaanderen, etc. 


eVanescens is an interactive audio-visual performance, a journey through various states, at the ever-shifting border between the real world and a constantly reinvented onirical universe.

Composer Todor Todoroff and videographer Laura Colmenares Guerra explore hybrid, singular and disturbing territories. With cellist Sigrid Vandenbogaerde, they perform live acoustic, electroacoustic and video elements.

The cellist wears a set of inertial sensors on her chest, arms and hands. These sensors, that track her movements, are associated with sound analysis techniques and gestural interfaces handled by the two other interpreters. Together they control software that (re)synthesizes and multiplies sounds and images in real time.

Combined, they increase the expressive possibilities of the instruments, defining new musical gestures and offering innovative writing techniques.

At the intersection of the acoustic sound and its many metamorphoses, in an intimate dialogue with the video image, eVanescens draws the viewer in an uncertain world, between disturbing strangeness, lightness and feelings of weightlessness.
