Ilya Ziblat Shay is a composer, sound artist and a researcher based in The Netherlands. His work combines interactive computer systems and live performance. Searching for new means of expression that reach beyond the purely musical, Ilya approaches current world issues with a critical view and aims to map technological-political-ethical questions as augmented musical narratives (‘Breathtaking mangled messes … a volatile document of a volatile time’, Jack Davidson, Noise Not Music). Ilya regularly collaborates with musicians and ensembles, and his work has been played on major stages and festivals in Europe and abroad.
