    "As a European based composer - sonic artist, I am approaching Yerevan with an open ear. I feel the philosophy and arts have roots into the long history of this country. Armenia proves with the TUMO Center where education, culture and science meet in such a special way, that this form of learning is working and even expanse to other counties through the world. I find this mindset in the ICAE2018 of Shaula International LLC too. A courageous way to blend new forms in arts and new cultures in this wonderful event "Soundlines of Contemporary Art". As composer - artist, I am creating new forms by sound research and morphology. My exhibition in the A. Khachaturian House Museum will be a perfect audible example for this as I blend painting and sound together in the audio sculpture "Acrylic Intonations". For this occasion I recorded the painting proces of Tomas Rajlich. By analizing these sounds, I could re-synthesis these processes into a new form whereby time, frequency, amplitude and space are dealt with seperately, and therefore having the possibilliy to seize new sonic shapes." - Roland Kuit
