Workshop dates: 17/05/2021 - 2021-08-31
    
Listening is a practice - it is a political act. Sound is a way of knowing the world; a way of orienting ourselves, of expressing, understanding and contextualising our position. We can use sound to make connections, to grow decentralized networks, to organise. The possibilities of language - political language, deconstructed language, poetic language - to organise these networks and connections is intensely powerful and nuanced. What is political sound? Or collective sound? Does it have a transformative quality? How can we make sound together, and decolonize our practice as an individualistic form of expression? What technology can we involve, develop or hack? 

And, as we explore these networks, there are important ethical considerations. What is the relationship between the recorder and recorded? Do I have consent? Is it my place to tell this story?

This workshop will focus on each participant working to develop their perspective on three elements: sound, language and position. Each session will develop from the presentation of new ideas through to a set of directions, and assignments for the next session. There will be face-to-face meetings and group listening, as we manouvre towards the production of a short-form audio work for presentation on recon (https://rec-on.org)

Antye Greie (aka AGF) is an East-German artist and producer living on Hailuoto Island, Finland. She assumes a multiplicity of facets and roles – sound sculptor, poet, composer, gender activist, sound and new media curator. Her experimental music, without completely leaving the dance floor, proves hard to label. Her sounds at times echo musique concrète, other times glitch or noise, alluding to icons like Björk or Laurie Anderson. In spite of her clear poetic tendencies, language requently disappears in her work, drawing the human voice into a game with pure tonalities, beyond worn out recognizable speech. Ambient sounds, synthesized voices, dissonant malfunction warnings drain into the atonal river of post-digital aesthetics.

Having participated in Documenta 14 and Transmediale and received an award at the Ars Electronica festival (2014), Antye Greie is a complex artist whose praxis, though socio-politically laden, goes beyond mere ideology. Her fluctuating, modulating identity composes and recomposes itself from samples, comments, likes, and photos on Facebook, Mixcloud tracks, bytes circulating at dizzying speeds, always one step ahead of the newest control tech.

Antye's installation "Mycelium" - in which mushrooms generate sound, composing music in real time - ties into a larger project entitled (sonic) Wild Code, in which AGF and a group of artists, anthropologists, and computer scientists construct music from the audio feedback caused by rocks, wind, plants, streams, and a metal reindeer fence. These experiences in hybrid ecology were commented on by the artist in a text which recently came out in Musical Instruments in the 21st Century (Springer, 2017), a volume with theoretical underpinnings, broadly, in Deleuze’s theory of assemblages, of hierarchy dissolution, and free, rhizomatic relations.

Antye is an active member of the female:pressure community, and has militated for Kurdish and Syrian women and for the visibility of female electronic music artists and producers, actions echoed in the recent tendencies of Romania’s art paradigm (see Bucharest’s party scene and collectives like Vagenta and Corp). Her discourse aims at promoting equality of opportunity and diversity on the electronic music scene, interweaving power, responsibility and aesthetics.

IN*AUDIBLE & NON*VISUAL

OPEN CALL

FOR ARTISTS OF ALL FIELDS, MUSICIANS & CROSS-DISCIPLINARY PRACTICES

 

Improper Walls calls for applications on the topic IN*AUDIBLE & NON*VISUAL, which will be examined in an exhibition, performances and workshops. All mediums and formats, scales and visions are welcome, especially AV installations and performances. The exhibition will take place at Improper Walls’ exhibition space, as well as in partner locations and public spaces. 

 

The aim of this project is to illuminate all aspects of soundwaves, across all possibilities, from warfare to sound art, from noise pollution to scientific use, from communication to music. IMPROPER WALLS aims to generate attention in order to give the audience food for thought at precisely this intersection of arts and sciences, and to make sound waves through unusual practices perceptible as a sensory experience.

 

We already encounter the power of sounds since ancient civilizations. The use of infrasound weapons has been discussed since the 1960s, and are currently part of standardized military and crowd control equipment worldwide. The scope of this highly political issue affects environmental and climate protection as well as basic human rights.

On the other hand groundbreaking achievements in medical research and therapy have been made possible through the use of infra and ultrasound waves. Music and sound art are undisputed highlights of human culture.  The open call aims to embrace multiple perspectives and approaches.

Awne is an approach to art making where natural farming, agroforestry, buddhism, cosmocentric farming, biocultural systems, forest gardening and biomimicry meets sound and art. By looking at different ways of positioning yourself as nature (instead of in nature) you can take a different approach to your own practice. By using and exploring this approach to your practice it might increase your awareness of different processes that occur around us, the complexity of these processes, the sustainability of your practice and your place as nature. 

The workshop will consist of an introduction to this system, how to apply it to your own practice (music/art/can also be applied to other fields) and how to lower your impact on the environment while being active in your field. During the workshop we will attempt to create a piece of sound/art/text/anything based on this approach.

The first session will provide an introduction to Awne - interesting voices in natural farming, agroforestry, buddhism, cosmocentric farming, biocultural systems, forest gardening and biomimicry. It will examine the sustainability and permanence of your own practice. The second session will offer a practical approach to Awne, and how to set up your practice. After a two week break to work with the ideas covered so far, the third session will look at the work produced by the group so far. The fourth session will examine technical approaches to sound and image in combination with Awne, and the final session will cover theoretical approaches to Awne, before going through the final results produced by the group.

Lars Holdhus (TCF) is a Norwegian born artist and musician who deals with language, codes, signs and signifiers. Influenced by genetic code, cryptography and complex systems of encryption, his approach to his practice and art-making in general is not in communication but an in-depth investigation that strives towards a goal of making it's own system - often one that is self-referential, or an inversion of signs and signifiers that fold back in on themselves.

Recent exhibitions and performances include Inflected Objects #1 Abstraction, Swiss Institute, Milan, EBM(T), Listening Room and Shattered Preface, OSL Contemporary, Oslo. Holdhus' works reflect a strong sense of rhythm, seriality and melody, as well as a deep immersion in technology. In his recent works, Holdhus has been addressing tendencies in machine learning, AI and human interaction. He is also a producer of electronic music and is releasing music under the moniker TCF with a release out on Liberation Technologies and Ekster. His forthcoming records will come out on YYAA Tapes and PAN, both based in Berlin.
