Gazette Prezintă! CORP
Cosima Opartan, former architect that gave up planning for a concoction of reasons, both ideological and practical, is now part of collectives that deal with music, performance and sometimes nothing. Assumed double musical identity, as half of Raze de Soare, a duo that is interested in exploring the sound of outernational minimal restaurant music and then as Cosima von Bülove, an alias involved in digging out affectively filtered musical gems and rendering them to various audiences. Started collaborating with the Presidential Candidacy performative group, getting involved in it aesthetically as well as conceptually and migrated towards finance democratisation through technology as a member of Robin Hood Minor Asset Management. Part of Corp., a Bucharest based platform dedicated to supporting and promoting female & female identified musical talent. Really interested in working with image, the surface or appearance of things, as a subversive way to address questions.
Chlorys is a DJ, visual artist and soon-to-be-cyborg based in Bucharest. After only one year of trekking through the murky & engulfing waters of electronic music, Chlorys is already a member of the Queer Night family of DJs. During this relatively short time span, she played alongside Lena Willikens, Ron Morelli, Veronica Vasicka, Borusiade, Khidja, Holy Fix, Utopus, L-Vis 1990 etc. and was part of the Rokolectiv Festival 2016 & 2017 roster. She situates herself (or not) everywhere in-between or outside of the genre-formula, letting herself be seized by the limbo currents into undisclosed territories. Incorporating a background in visual arts, Chlorys emphasizes on a multi and interdisciplinary approach to music and is concerned about socio-political context. All those interests led her to be a contributor to Bucharest based The Attic Magazine for sonic and visual investigations. Noticing the need for an inclusive local (and international) electronic music scene, as of late 2016, she and other female-identified musicians (Admina, Cosima Von Bülove from Raze de Soare, Beatrice Sommer) have started a platform and a studio called Corp. whose aim is to promote and encourage female musicians by offering them the space and time where they can exercise and outperform themselves.
