In “Ton-Dose”, the artist creates small and portable sound devices, such as frequency and noise generators, feedbacks, loopers or delays, which are hosted in everyday metal food cans. Through body contact, action and light, Martí Guillem manipulates these elements and mixes the different sound sources, generating complex musical compositions with a deep poetic atmosphere.

Based in Berlin, and having performed in cities like Vienna, Rome, Oslo, Paris, Barcelona, Stockholm, Prague or Istanbul, Martí Guillem is an heterodox artist who manipulates electronic devices, sounds, images, videos, actions and objects, often obtaining unusual and unique results.
Improvisation, experimentation and DIY are combined, irreverently but reflexive, within rather ephemeral proposals. His performances are usually characterised by a fresh and changing language that reflects about the social habits and the relationships between creativity and everyday life.
The pleasure that Martí experiences when performing may be perceived as an act of generosity that invites you to attend. He is one of those artists who, in their artistic approach, is himself a great part of the message. He is the surprise. — Alvaro Pichó.
