In the Dark @ City Sonics [be Mons]

citysonics.jpgIn the Dark (Belgian premiere) by
Armando Menicacci and Christian Delécluse at City Sonics :: Ateliers des FUCAM, Rue des soeurs noires 2 – 7000 MONS.

In the dark is an immersive sound experience that draws the solitary spectator into a totally obscured room. Without visual reference mark and under the influence of mysterious sound environment, the visitor is tempted to create new references in order to get a hold of the space he hears. Stories, voices, indications suggest the situations taking place in the places he cannot see. In this installation by Armando Meniacci and Christian Delécluse, he can but only imagine them and respond with gestures and movements. He is free to take action, but the sounds hunt him, avoid or invite him… In the dark… thus develops a different perception of the body and offers an intense time, the experience to be another.

A Philosophonics of Space: Sound, Futurity and the End of the World

sound-transmission.jpg“… In contemporary discussions of the body in space, of information highways and virtual realities, radiant sound establishes a `ground’ in the discourse of the future – be it utopian or dystopian – built from sound’s long history of transmission (telephony, radiophony) and `spirit’ (electrified by composers such as Cage, Varese and Stockhausen). This ‘ground’ has also been adopted to some extent by the contemporary philosophers Derrida, Baudrillard and Lyotard, who use aural, spatial and incinderal metaphors to raise questions about being, technology, and the future. Thus radiant sound becomes a figure in different but related cultural fields: as a trope for many of the great modernist reconciliations, its history in organicism, romanticsm and individualism, provides a model for the individual dispersed across the electronic field.

Live Stage: Wet Sounds [uk Brighton]

wetsounds.jpgWet Sounds– The worlds only underwater sound art gallery returns to Brighton for a special session at Brighton and Hove’s White Night :: October 25, 2008; 9:00 pm – midnight :: Prince Regent Pool, Church Street, Brighton :: for the price of pool admission.

Underwater speakers submerged in the pool will play sounds and music to an audience floating or swimming through the water. Sound travels four times quicker in water than in air so the sound is perceived not only by the ears but also by the bones and the body. Session One is undersea sounds for the under 14s. Later on the grown ups can immerse themselves in a listening gallery of international sound and some leisurely Aquadelica.

Jacob Kirkegaard – Labyrinthitis

labyrinthitis.jpgJacob Kirkegaard – Labyrinthitis :: Touch # Tone 35 :: CD – 1 track – 38:10 :: Special wallet limited edition :: Commissioned by Medical Museion in Copenhagen, Summer 2007.

Jacob Kirkegaard has turned his ears inwards: His new work LABYRINTHITIS is an interactive sound piece that consists entirely of sounds generated in the artist’s auditory organs – and will cause audible responses in those of the audience. LABYRINTHITIS relies on a principle employed both in medical science and musical practice: When two frequencies at a certain ratio are played into the ear, additional vibrations in the inner ear will produce a third frequency. This frequency is generated by the ear itself: a so-called “distortion product otoacoustic emission” (DPOAE), also referred to in musicology as “Tartini tone”. Continue reading

music.jpgLes Grands Spectacles III: Sound of Art. Music and Visual Arts :: until October 12, 2008 :: Museum der Moderne Salzburg Moenchsberg, Moenchsberg 32, 5020 Salzburg, Austria.

The exhibition trilogy Les Grands Spectacles will be completed this summer with the theme of the bonds between music and visual arts. Sound of Art will present scores, objects, photographs, videos and video installations, records of actions and many more exhibits. Right at the beginning the exhibition focuses on its main themes: the radical break of the avant-garde art movements emerging at the beginning of the 20th century with 19th century bourgeois culture (dominated by the cult of genius, classical instruments, musical harmonies and melodies, etc.), and the various revaluations of its inherent categories, such as virtuosity.

Live Stage: Navigating the Space of the Future [nl Amsterdam]

david_dunn.jpg[Image: David Dunn] Navigating the Space of the Future – Seminar with presentations by: Yolande Harris, David Dunn and Atau Tanaka:: April 15, 2008; 8:30 pm :: Netherlands Media Art Institute, Keizersgracht 264, 1016 EV Amsterdam :: LIVE STREAM.

What does it mean to navigate? What is the importance of location specificity? What does it mean to get lost? The increasing accuracy of satellite navigation strives to eliminate the possibility of human error, but it also produces a sense of dislocation from one’s immediate environment by abstracting location as the coordinates of longitude and latitude. What place is there for one’s body, one’s senses, one’s conscious and unconscious awareness of space, if this knowledge is so apparently made redundant by GPS? Continue reading
