Ecoacoustics with Annea Lockwood And Leah Barclay

Info & bookings: https://www.campfr.com/ecoacoustics

The lived in world can be sensed in many ways. During this course, two of the world's leading protagonists of field recording and ecoacoustics will delve into sound as a means of exploring and understanding the environments that surround us. Using various approaches to listening, recording and composing, this course will extend field recording as a practice existing between the aesthetic, the artistic and the scientific.

Acoustic recordings of the environment provide extremely valuable information about the health of ecosystems and offer viable means to understand and document the temporal and spatial complexities of changing environments. The emergence of the interdisciplinary field of ecoacoustics has resulted in a dramatic increase in the practice of field recording for artistic and scientific purposes. While the scientific advancements of ecoacoustics have provided valuable ecological information and clear evidence on the future possibilities - listening has not played an active role in many existing studies. Acoustic sensors are often deployed in the field by scientists and analysed using automated algorithms without listening to the environment or the resulting data. Yet listening and our comprehension of sound can inform every stage of the process and dramatically increase our abilities to collect precise information - from selecting locations in the field to recording techniques and analysis.

This course is underpinned by the creative possibilities of sound in understanding our environment. We will explore the importance of listening, the aesthetics of sound and the value of our auditory perception in the comprehension of acoustic data. From micro acoustic sensors to sophisticated spatial sound diffusion, this course will introduce the latest interdisciplinary research and ignite our auditory perceptions to interpret our sonic environment through listening, recording, analysis and creativity. The course will include field recording expeditions, theoretical workshops, experiments with new technologies and listening to immersive sound compositions that examine the health of ecosystems. Participants will have the opportunities to develop their own creative works and will explore how ecological sound artists and composers have propelled scientific research in ecoacoustics. This course will demonstrate the value of our auditory perception in ecoacoustics and the future possibilities of understanding our environment through sound.

Born in New Zealand in 1939 and living in the US since 1973, Annea Lockwood is known for her explorations of the rich world of natural acoustic sounds and environments, in works ranging from sound art and installations to concert music. Her interest in field recording and environmental sound has continued throughout her career. Jitterbug (2007), commissioned by the Merce Cunningham Dance Company for the dance eyeSpace, incorporates Lockwood's recordings of aquatic insects, and two improvising musicians working from photographs of rock surfaces. Her sound installation, A Sound Map of the Danube, has been presented in Germany, Austria, Hungary, Romania and the USA. This is a surround 'sound map' of the entire Danube River, incorporating a wide variety of water, animal and underwater insect sounds, rocks from the riverbed and the voices of those whose lives are intimately connected to the river.

Recent projects focused on the natural world include Wild Energy (2014 ), a collaboration with Bob Bielecki - a multi-channel site-specific installation focused on geophysical, atmospheric and mammalian infra and ultra sound sources, commissioned by the Caramoor Festival of the Arts. A double CD collaboration with Christina Kubisch, The secret life of the inaudible (Gruenrekorder) was released in April 2018, and includes a reconceived stereo version of Wild Energy, together with Kubisch's Nine Magnetic Places and newly composed acousmatic works created by each composer from shared sound files.

Leah Barclay is an Australian sound artist, composer and researcher working at the intersection of art, science and technology. She specialises in acoustic ecology, ecoacoustics and sound art through research projects that investigate environmental patterns and changes through sound. Her work has been commissioned, performed and exhibited to wide acclaim internationally by organisations including Smithsonian Museum, UNESCO, Ear to the Earth, Al Gore's Climate Reality and the IUCN. She composes complex sonic environments, immersive live performances and interactive installations that draw attention to changing climates and fragile ecosystems. Leah leads several large-scale research projects including Biosphere Soundscapes, an interdisciplinary venture exploring the changing soundscapes of UNESCO Biosphere Reserves and River Listening, which examines the future possibilities of freshwater ecoacoustics in collaboration with the Australian Rivers Institute. Leah is the president of the Australian Forum for Acoustic Ecology, the vice-president of the World Forum of Acoustic Ecology and serves on the board of a range of arts and environmental organisations. She is currently a research fellow at Griffith University in Australia where she is leading a portfolio of research in acoustic ecology and climate change.

Outcomes for participants:

> Heightened auditory perception through the applied study of ecoacoustics, acoustic ecology, field recording, ecological awareness and deep listening practices introduced through critical enquiry, historical context, interdisciplinary perspectives and practical activities.
> Practical skills in field recording for both artistic and scientific purposes
> Practical skills in editing and analysis of acoustic recordings for both artistic and scientific purposes
> Practical skills in soundscape composition and live diffusion

The session will include daily sound walks, field recording sessions, lectures, practical sessions, listening sessions, editing and analysis workshops, composition workshops, one-to-one tuition meetings and a final concert of work produced. Following the session, participants will benefit from ongoing artist support from CAMP, Fuse Art Space and our array of specialised record labels and publishing imprints, including release, performance and installation/exhibition opportunities.

Video & Installation Art with Laure Prouvost

Share

Description: 

Info & bookings: https://www.campfr.com/laureprouvost

In 2013, Laure Prouvost won the prestigious Turner Prize for her work Wantee - a video installation telling the true/fictional story of her grandfather's relationship with Kurt Schwitters. The work, commissioned by Grizedale Arts and the Tate Britain, is a poignant example of Laure's immersive filmmaking style, her tangling of narratives and her bewildering montage echnique. Words separate from their normal meanings; objects, imagery, drawings and symbols combine in dizzying combinations; the artist tunnels through established truth and fiction, creating an onslaught of sensory and logical stimulus. She has exhibited at Carlier Gebauer (Berlin), Tate Britain (London), Consortium Dijon, MMK Frankfurt, Kunstmuseum Luzern, CCA Laznia (Gdansk), Walker Art Centre (Minneapolis), Witte de With CCA (Rotterdam), Hangar Biccoca (Milan), State of Concept (Athens), Fahrenheit (Los Angeles), Haus Der Kunst (Munich), e-flux (NYC), CAPC Musée d’Art Contemporain de Bordeaux, New Museum (NYC), Extra City Kunsthal (Antwerp), The Hepworth (Wakefield) and at many other institutions around the globe.

Laure's films are often combined with sculptural/3D installations, creating immersive environments in which her unruly conceptual ruptures can unfold - her 2015 work Dear dirty dark drink drift down deep droll (in der dole) starts with a bookshelf stacked with poetry and travel tomes - the bookshelf hides a secret door which plunges disorientated visitors into a pitch-black corridor, through which they will eventually feel their way to the screening room.

Laure's course will burrow deep into the labyrinthine business of conceptual installation art, examining a diverse range of aspects influencing her practice, and the field in general; examining key ideas, moments and questions from the history of conceptual installation art; exploring technical possibilities, techniques and the position of technology in conceptual art. Group sessions in our state-of-the-art classrooms will cover a wide range of topics, and individual sessions will develop your practice and projects.

Description: 

Info/bookings: https://www.campfr.com/gavinbryars

Gavin Bryars is without a doubt one of the world's most celebrated living composers. He emerged to the musical establishment in the early sixties, playing bass with improvisers Derek Bailey and Tony Oxley - his relationship with improvisation was short lived, and by the late 60's he was working with John Cage, Cornelius Cardew and John White. His first major works - The Sinking of the Titanic (1969), originally released on Brian Eno's Obscure label in 1975, and Jesus' Blood Never Failed Me Yet (1971) - were released in new versions in the 1990s, selling over a quarter of a million copies.

Opera and ballet have formed important strands in Gavin's practice - he has written four full-length operas, working with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, English National Opera, Mainz Opera, Long Beach Opera and the Opera de Paris, alongside such renowned directors as Robert Wilson, Georges Delnon and Jean Lacorrnerie. Hi has worked with Opera North Projects and the Royal Shakespeare Company since 2006, and his collaboration with Merce Cunningham, Biped, toured worldwide with the Cunningham Company.

Elsewhere in Gavin's extensive catalogue of works can be found vocal works written for The Hilliard Ensemble, and commissions for Bournemouth Sinfonietta, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Primavera Chamber Orchestra and London Sinfonietta. His background in the visual arts has resulted in works for the opening of the Tate Gallery in Liverpool, an installation in the Chateau d'Oiron, commissioned by the French Ministry of Culture, a work for the Tate Gallery St Ives, and a project for the Valencia Architecture Biennale. This visual arts affinity has also led to highly successful collaborations with David Byrne, Bruce MacLean, Bill Culbert, Juan Munoz, Christian Boltanski, Will Alsop and others.

This course will take Gavin's work as a starting point to examine compositional forms and strategies, working closely with the group's existing practice and methods, with the aim of each student developing a finished work for performance at the end of the session. Students from all musical backgrounds are welcome, whether classically trained, improvisors, sound artists, installation artists, conceptual artists or favouring any other approach. The session will include:

Individual tuition sessions, examining and developing each student's existing work and practiceGroup sessions examining different types of musical material, including vocal music (both solo and ensemble), string music, opera, music for dance, composing in relation to music from the past, and arranging the music of othersEvening events showing Gavin's work in opera and filmDevelopment of each student's work for final performance by the group at the end of the course

The sessions will be accompanied by optional outdoors activities led by CAMP crew, including guided mountaineering, visits to local beauty points, and downtime to hang out, relax, enjoy the local food and wine, and learn informally from Gavin, the CAMP crew, and your fellow students. Following the course, further support of the work developed will come in the form of performance and releasing opportunities via Fuse Art Space and our range of in-house record labels."

TOWARDS: 2019 (contemporary dance workshops)

Share

Type:

City:

Description: 

TOWARDS is a cycle of intensive workshops that include physical praxis, evening lectures, video screenings, and live performances. It’s the metaphor of aiming at something - to expose and engage ourselves in physical investigations and conceptual challenges that can foster creativity and encourage discoveries. TOWARDS see pedagogy as a continuous intellectual provocation, an occasion for inspiration through paradoxes and awakenings and as a desire to overturn common sense and question what we have learned.

TOWARDS offers the occasion to explore the work of renowned international artists, gaining an insight into their practice and methodologies as well the philosophical and poetic worlds that trigger their creative research.
The project started in August 2018 with Julyen Hamilton’s workshop, ‘Making Dances - compositional and poetic richness’.
In 2019, the workshops will be organized in three blocks of two weeks. Each week will include:
- a lecture for sharing theoretical reflections
- evening video screenings
- a final performative event
