Below20 – Sound museum of Silence | Compilation

I'm happy to announce that a track Tasty Orange which I used as for my Installation "Heimliches Arbeiten beginnt“ is part of the below20dB Project!

Silence can be defined as a soundscape with loudness below 20 dB. This project is an open archive which collect silence as soundscape / field recording below 20 dB. This is an attempt to create a sound museum of silence. Is an open and on-going project, so everyone can contribute with a silence, sending it by email (20decibel[at]gmail.com).

With the sound some information are required, like: place of the recording, time of the recording and of the day when was taken, type of ambient in which the recording was taken, and of course the author. Based on this catalogue of infos, some publication (like digital collection) will be released showing a particular topic.

ZeitEins Happening | Altenhof/AT | 5.9.2017

Kunst auf Augenhöhe

Assista lädt am 28. September zu einem Happening der besonderen Art. Auf die BesucherInnen wartet ein bunter Mix aus bildender und darstellender Kunst mit Überraschungseffekt.

„ZeitEins“ heißt die Aktion mit den KünstlerInnen der Assista Kreativwerkstätten, dem Zeichner und Sounddesigner David Lipp, dem Multimedia-Artist Sebastian Six sowie dem Theaterkollektiv Iriden.
Für diesen Tag werden Teile von Assista in einen Ausstellungsraum verwandelt. Angelegt ist diese Veranstaltung als Happening. Eine Art der Aktionskunst, in der künstlerische, visuelle, theatralische und auditive Formen vermischt werden. Das Besondere dabei: Das Publikum spielt ebenfalls eine wichtige Rolle und wird vom reinen Betrachter selbst zum Teil des Gesamtwerkes. So erklingt plötzliche Live-Musik aus dem Fahrstuhl oder beginnt eine spontane Theaterperformance im Stiegenhaus: Nach jeder Ecke könnte eine neue Überraschung lauern.

Gezeigt werden Werke von und mit den KünstlerInnen der Assista Kreativwerkstätten, David Lipp, sowie Installationen von Sebastian Six. Musikalisch begleitet wird das Happening von dem oberösterreichischen Singer-Songwriter Bernhard Eder, dem Geiger Florian Sighartner und Multitalent Florian Grossmann.

Die Veranstaltung beginnt um 19:00 Uhr, der Eintritt ist frei.

Datscha Radio 2017 | 25. – 29.8.2017

I'm happy to announce that a track from my Album Feldsaiten is played at Datscha Radio 2017.

Datscha Radio 2017 / Plots & Prophecies / Parzellenprognosen / 25. – 29. August 2017

A five-day programme combining radio, gardening, hospitality and contemporary discourse in a live radio festival in a garden in the north of Berlin. Datscha Radio 17 uses radio as an artistic medium and as a source of inspiration and action. The process of radio making – otherwise quite a hidden event – becomes transparent in the winter garden of the house. Creative, interdisciplinary and open to everybody, Datscha Radio 17 transforms the privacy of the allotment garden intoa public space for art and communication. You are welcome to participate!

We broadcast from the 25th to the 29th of August 2017 !

With „Plots „and Prophecies“, Datscha Radio will take a look at the future of gardening, the links between biology and technology, and at the changing role of people in this world. Something has shifted in the old imbalance of flora and fauna … and we cannot be so sure that our present awareness will suffice to put these changes into a dialogue with the environment.

5 days = 5 themes

The Datscha radio garden assembles practitioners, gardeners and guests from various fields: music and performance, science and art, local and international.
Together we will trace and listen to the diverse voices, sounds, imprints and languages of the garden. We will broadcast in German and English, but there will be other languages to be heard as well.

  • Friday, August 25th: Hortus Politicus
  • Saturday, 26 August: New Symbioses
  • Sunday, August 27: Biotopes in Futur Perfect
  • Monday, August 28: Birds and Bees
  • Tuesday, August 29: Subterranean Meditations

Our Open Call invites international sound gardeners and radiophiles to participate by applying (with broadcasts / features / compositions) by the 5th of August.

Live broadcasting will start on Friday, the 25th of August at 12 noon. Our blog will be updated daily with information on the schedule, programme details, as well as the invited artists and guests.

We can be heard:

  •  Online at www.datscharadio.de
  •  over micro-FM in the surrounding of the garden
  • At selected times on the 88.4 Berlin and 90.7 in Potsdam

Mediterranea 18 Young Artists Biennale | Tirana/AL | 4. – 9.5.2017

For the very first time, Albania will be the hosting country of the Biennale of young artists from Europe and the Mediterranean, a multidisciplinary event, promoted by BJCEM, that takes place once in two years in a different location in Europe, with young artists aged from 18 to 34 presenting their contemporary works and performances based on the general theme proposed by the Artistic Director.
The Ministry of Culture of Albania, in collaboration with BJCEM, will host 230 artists from Europe and the Mediterranean region. The public will have a different experience of contemporary art thanks to the interesting formula of Mediterranea 18 Young Artists Biennale, the proposed theme and unusual exhibition spaces in Albania.
The Ministry of Culture of Albania, together with BJCEM’s Board approved the appointment of
Driant Zeneli as the Artistic Director of Mediterranea 18 Young Artists Biennale, with the responsibility for conceptualizing the theme of the Biennale and setting up the curatorial team, each of the curators curating one of the following six disciplines: applied arts, visual art, performance, literary creation, music and film.
Driant Zeneli is a renowned Albanian artist working between Milan and Tirana, who represented Albania at the 54th International Art Exhibition-Venice Biennale.

He has exhibited at: MuCEM, Marseille, (2016), Centre Pompidou, Paris, (2016); MSFAU Tophane-i Aime, Istanbul, (2016); Prometeogallery di Ida Pisani, Milan (2015; 2010); GAM, Museum of Modern and Contemporaryart Turin (2013); ZKM, Karlsruhe (2012); MUSAC, Castiglia León. Spain, (2012); Prague Biennale 5, Prague (2011); National Gallery of Kosove, Prishtine (2010); Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Villa Croce, Genoa (2009); National Gallery of Tirana, (2008).

Driant Zeneli conceptualized the theme of Mediterranea 18, having considered the following:

  • The main aim of BJCEM association, which is the use of art as a tool to promote diversity and intercultural dialogue;
  • the growing complexities of political, social and economic structures in the world and finally Albania, the hosting country of the Biennale that is defined by its isolated and communist past.

The theme is History + Conflict + Dream + Failure = HOME, and much more than a simple equation, Zeneli’s curatorial concept describes why HOME is grounded on these four elements:

‘’… History, intending the archive of the unaccountable number of individual stories, recorded or forgotten. Conflict, to consider the way we share homes. Dream as the project of home, as the fundamental human right to be free to choose and desire our real or imaginary home. Failure as the inner resistance of the various attempts, transformed along the way in search for the dream home’’.

The Curatorial Team comes from various countries and backgrounds, and bring with them valuable experience for curating their respective discipline:

Curator of Applied Arts: Jonida Turani
Curator of Visual Art: Maja Ciric
Curator of Performance: Ema Andrea
Curator of Literary Creation: ALA Group / Maria Rosa Sossai
Curator of Music: Alban Nimani&Rubin Beqo / Tulla Center
Curator of Film: Eroll Bilibani

Multiple exhibition spaces
The 230 selected artists will exhibit in some unusual and though-provoking spaces around Tirana and Durrës. The exhibition spaces include former communist sights, museums, buildings, installations, etc. The selected artists will be hosted in Tirana and Durres from May 4 to 9, 2017. In those days they will have the opportunity to show their works and will perform in the spaces provided in the two cities. The exhibitions will be open to the public until May 28, 2017.

PUREED NOISE SOUP | Concerts I 7.3.2017

Atsushi Tadokoro (JP), Gabriela Gordillo (MX), Sebastian Six (AT), Renick Bell (US/JP), Yen Tzu Chang (TW)

Puréed Noise Soup is a hybrid sound event, that involves a series of concerts, a workshop and an interactive installation, that puts together artists with different views of sound, which sources are data sets, live-coding, analogue and digital sounds, or electronic circuits. Observing the variety of this sound performances as if they were different tastes of ingredients, we want to present it as a process to make a puréed soup: all artists will provide different materials, that in the end, will be a unique sonic food for the audience.

Observing the sound performance as a tasting experience, an on-site installation, allows the audience to taste the ingredients themselves, and make their own mixes through interaction, as a first encounter with the sounds of each performer.

Concerts:
March 7th, BB15, Linz
March 16th, Signal Zirkus, Vienna

"NOTES ON TOMORROW " CURATED BY LUISA SANTOS

If we think of contemporary art as a social system – an idea coined by Niklas Luhmann (1992) putting the arts in the realm of perception -, we locate art in what it does at its best: showing possible realities, through a critical observation, of the world we live in, at social, economical and political levels.

It is precisely in this idea that the history of the collective exhibition Notes on Tomorrow unfolds.  The characters (the works) of this story come together in a series of dichotomies. Firstly, the large in conflict with the small; on the other hand, the visual formalisation of the contrasts between History, fiction and memories; the relationship between the observer and the observed; contemplation and creation; networks of information, stories and seemingly random events; and, finally, the contradiction between known and unknown, translated by the desire to discover, to change to something beyond the horizon and, paradoxically, the need for familiar refuges.

These dichotomies are not about presenting definitive answers for contemporary society’s challenges but more about looking into a series of questions, observations and experimentations. In this way, these representations reflect the ambivalence of human relations. In other words, it is about visually translating small utopia's at local levels through inventions, desires and propositions.

Notes on Tomorrow comes in a series of twenty-one voices from different European cities (Arad, Aveiro, Genoa, Harghita County, Kaunas, Kristiansand, Lecce, Pardubice, Valladolid, Vilnius, and Zagreb) to dwell on possible perceptions about current social issues and includes installations, drawings, texts, diagrams, videos, photographs and different kinds of situations.  - Luísa Santos

subnetAIR2015 Presentation | Schmiede, Hallein/AT | 21.9.2016

FAXEN got the subnetAIR residency 2015, so we're now invited to present the work ON AIR on 21th of September at the Schmiede in Hallein.

A helium filled balloon equipped with microphones is used to create expansive field recordings of urban areas. This method allows the artist collective FAXEN to record multiple acoustic transitions between divergent areas in an urban environment. Sonic zoom-in and zoom- out movements that oscillate between subjective and objective points of view, between actual and abstract and between close by and far away. Arranged as a multi-channel sound installation ON AIR invites the listener to explore the diverse acoustic topography of a city.

[H:UMMMM] - auditive.wellness.heterotopologies

Sat, April 9th 2016, 15:00 – 22:00
Wellnessoase Hummelhof, Ramsauerstraße 12, Linz

[H:UMMMM] examines, elaborates and processes the functionality of sounds in modern spa/wellness zones in manifold ways. Interrelations between sound and social, medical, architectonic and artistic contexts will be investigated, discussed and analysed. These contexts will be examined in relation to sound studies and Michel Foucault's concept of Human Geography.

[H:UMMMM] explores the ties and liaisons of artistic and academic approaches in a site-specific spa-centre heterotopia in Linz, Austria. This will take place on April 9th, 2016. By exchanging all audio sources of the bath, experiencing performances, installations and lectures the spa area of the wellness oasis Hummelhof is converted into an auditory spa/wellness heterotopia of a different kind.

The program consists of …

Deformation der Stille | galerie5020, Salzburg/AT | 11.12. – 14.02.2015

Ein Ausstellungsprojekt von Franz Bergmüller & Siegfried Zaworka

 

Mit:
Ioan Cernei & Tiina Sööt, FAXEN, Susanna Flock, Peter Fritzenwallner, Michael Gumhold, Stefan Klampfer, Ulrike Königshofer, Jakob Neulinger, Ivan Petkov, Christian Ruchnewitz

 

Die Form bedingt den Ton könnte eine Maxime des Instrumentenbaus sein. Wenn jedoch die Form eines Dinges zur Herstellung eines Tones mindestens gleichberechtigt zeichnet, führt uns diese Aussage direttissima zur »Deformation der Stille«.
Der Ton transformiert hierbei die Form, so möchte man rückwirkend hinzufügen – und zwar nicht nur in jenem bestimmten Kontext, in dem beide existieren, sondern bereits davor: denn die Form des Apparates zur Herstellung eines Tones unterliegt bereits einer Zweckgebundenheit. Der Begriff »Zweckgebundenheit« täuscht allerdings gerne über die damit gewonnenen Freiheiten bei der Suche nach einem geeigneten Formenvokabular, das eine tatsächliche Vertonung impliziert, hinweg.
Klangliche Installation, akustische Plastik, donnernde Performance, ächzende Grafik, murmelnde Malerei – einige in verschiedenen medialen Bereichen verankerte hybride Stützkonstruktionen geraten in den Fokus unserer Aufmerksamkeit: Wer einen Ausstellungsbeitrag übersehen möchte, braucht Ohrenstöpsel, um sich nicht die visuelle Ausprägung durch den in Dezibel messbaren Output vorstellen zu müssen.

Listening Post, Expedition Sonar und Arbeiten der Reihe Sound Passagen bilden die Basis für die weitere intensive Beschäftigung mit dem Themenfeld Soundart.
Die Arbeiten von Maja Osojnik (im LENTOS Leseraum) und der Künstlergruppe Faxen (im Zentralaufgang) siedeln sich am Schnittpunkt von Innen und Außen an und bieten eine auf die auditive Ebene konzentrierte Wahrnehmung.

(h)ear XL II | Heerlen/NL | 26.9 – 9.11.2014

(h)ear is a foundation which focusses on sound art and experimental music and makes effort to initiate dialogues with other art disciplines in order to create and stimulate. (h)ear organizes concerts, performances, workshops, lectures and curates exhibitions about sound art. Based in the Netherlands.

(h)ear is an art initiative located in Parkstad Limburg which in particular focuses on complementing existing cultural initiatives through sound art and experimental music. We promote sound art as an independent discipline initiating dialogue between other arts and existing initiatives. By providing (temporary) locations and platforms for live performances of (sound)artists we create the opportunity for various disciplines within the arts to connect and react. To achieve this we organise inovative performances, presentations, exhibitions and workshops by (sound)artists and curators, with the aim of stimulating the development and communication and debate within the arts. We don't have a presentation space or 'fixed' stage. Instead we use (temporary) sites, vacant buildings, project rooms at institutions and art centers, museums or public spaces, all clearly eligible for projects which (h)ear initiates.
