Insomnia Taxxi (Iryna Novikova)
Immersive sound art and electronic music
Ukrainian sound artist Insomnia Taxxi is one of the most innovative music creators from eastern Europe. When the war broke out, she found an asylum residency in Gothenburg and is now developing new projects from her temporary base in Sweden.
Iryna Novikova is a music producer, sound designer and DJ under the name Insomnia Taxxi. She’s in the European fore front within electronic experimental music, originally coming from a dark pop musical environment. Today she is moving towards immersive multidisciplinary sound art that works in both clubs, art spaces, galleries and museums.
This is why it’s not surprising that she´s in a short period of time performed in a variety of spaces in Sweden like Rikstolvan, Malmö Konsthall and Stora Teatern in Gothenburg, as well as clubs and venues in Europe. Insomnia Taxxi explores the relation between moving image and sound. Most of her performances have spectacular elements of film and projections accompanying her sets.
