Dunkelkammer Sessions is a virtual improvisation platform that explores the intersubjective relations of a dialogue in the distance articulated from the disciplines of dance, performance and sound art.
The format brings together 2 artists from distant contexts and locations, to realize a performative piece, under the premise of using audio as a sole medium of communication in real time. From the proposed set, sound and invisibility reveal the ‚other‘ out of the echo, voice, silence and non verbal communication, that conform new semantic fields where abstraction, telepathy and intimacy can fit.
SESSION 4 : Manuel Estrella (MX) & Sebastian Six (AT)
Hello, can you listen to your animal?
How can a long-distance sonic relationship work with another person? Is it possible to connect two strangers with their different life situations at the sound level? Trying to react in a very different way on the opposite, the only thing that counts is the instinct to listen.
The proposal of DKS observes the possibilities of language in the context of digital media, from the perspective of artistic practices, in a series of 6 sessions and 12 guest artists.
In collaboration between Mexico and Austria, Samer Alkurdi, Aura Arreola, Mariana Arteaga, Katia Castañeda, Galia Eibenschutz, Manuel Estrella, Iris Heitzinger, Bernadette Laimbauer, Yoh Morishita, Marta P. Campos, Sebastian Six, Esthel Vogrig, participate located in the cities of Mérida, Ciudad de México, Linz and Zaragoza.
Dunkelkammer Sessions is a project from Gabriela Gordillo and Fernando Vigueras, realized with the support of Linz Sounds and Casa del Lago in cooperation with DorfTv, servus.at, Primal, Radio FRO and CCD Radio.
