Noémi Büchi is a Zürich based composer searching for musical structures to evoke both feelings of sensual and intellectual euphoria.
Her interest lies in the creation and organization of her own sound material in the sense of acousmatic music. She expands her sound palette by using modular synthesizers, which she also uses as instruments for live performances.
The compositional approach she follows is based on improvisation, where she is intuitively guided by the sound material and its inner processes. In this context she is interested in the perception of musical time and composition in the musical time continuum, where she explores the transformation possibilities of sound matter.
She plays with patterns and rhythmic structures by exploring the perceptual boundaries between rhythm, timbre and tone.
Her sources of inspiration are archaic rhythms from folkloric Central African and Indian music, and the sound world of impressionist music.
She holds a bachelor's degree in musicology and German literature from the University of Zurich and is now completing her master's degree in electroacoustic composition with Germán Toro-Pérez at the ZHdK.
She has already given various live concerts and received residencies, among others she was able to work as a guest composer at EMS Stockholm for half a year, and released her first EP 'Matière' in October 2020.
