Date: 
Wednesday, September 9, 2020

Rivers, the earth’s irrigation systems, are vital to life – central to agriculture and industry, and a perennial motif in human culture. The rich, immersive soundscapes that they create form the focus of this online event.

Annea Lockwood and Leah Barclay are sound artists who for decades have been drawn to rivers for inspiration. Join them for this online audio presentation and conversation, introducing sound work that arises from the soundscapes of rivers, including recordings made around major arteries such as the Danube and the Hudson. Lockwood and Barclay will discuss the significance of their works, the ways that its processes and objectives have developed over time, and what they have learned in the course of their enduring relationships to the world’s waterways.

This event is presented in English and is free of charge and open to all.

Dark Sound: Oil, Ecology, Sound, and Loss

Tuesday, September 1, 2020

The oil industry provides the world with nearly 40% of its energy needs, offers the raw materials for diverse products and underpins the livelihoods of billions. At the same time, it jeopardises the environment and wreaks anthropological destruction. How do we think through this predicament and understand oil’s impact?

Mikel R. Nieto’s project Dark Sound (2016) documents the literal and metaphorical ‘noise’ that is created by the oil industry in the Ecuadorian rainforest, using recordings, reports, texts and declarations to address the industry’s impact on people and the environment. Printed in black on black paper and accompanied by a black CD, the publication is sold at the Brent price set for crude oil at the time of purchase and bears the warning that “by buying this book you are contributing to the destruction of the planet”. Dark Sound is a project that both conceals and reveals, in order to point towards the hidden nature of the costs of oil dependence. Issues concerning value and cost, and hierarchy and consent, lie at its centre.

Join us online for Nieto’s audio-visual presentation of Dark Sound and related works, followed by a Q&A and discussion.

This event is presented in English and is free of charge and open to all. It forms part of an events series addressing issues relating to sound and ecology, running alongside PRAKSIS’s seventeenth residency, Climata - Capturing change at a time of ecological crisis.

Date: 
Tuesday, September 15, 2020

THIS EVENT IS POSTPONED TO 15 SEPTEMBER DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES. We apologise for any inconvenience!

Sound artist and researcher Budhaditya Chattopadhyay’s talk and listening session focuses on the decolonisation of sound objects and the sonic cultures of the Global South. 

Based on Chattopadhyay’s current postdoctoral project (Connecting Resonances) this talk will discuss the politics of ethnographic field recording. It will include a critical listening to recordings taken during expeditions in the Global South post-1900, and look at strategies employed by musicians and others to evade “capture” by colonial technologies. 

This event will take place online at 17:30 - 19:00 CEST. It will be held in English and is free to join. It is the first event in a series addressing issues relating to sound and ecology. It takes place alongside PRAKSIS’s seventeenth residency, Climata - Capturing change at a time of ecological crisis, which has been developed with sound artist Lasse-Marc Riek and Goethe Institut Norway and includes collaborations with Notam and Norsk Teknisk Museum.

Thursday, April 30, 2020

Join the participants of Residency 17, Climata: Capturing Change at a Time of Ecological Crisis, as they introduce their work online, followed by questions and discussion.

Under the impact of COVID-19, PRAKSIS is revising residency and events formats and evolving new ways to meet the goals and expectations of participants and audiences. Climata aims to explore acoustic ecology, bio-acoustics and soundscapes. It asks what can sound tell us about how the world is changing? How does sound impact bio-diversity? And how might change be represented to instigate meaningful change? Despite the enforced distance between residency participants, we intend to keep to this agenda and invite you to join us for an evening of presentations and conversation. 

The talks will take place via the Zoom communication platform. The meeting space will be online from a little before 18.00 CEST. Please use this link to join: https://zoom.us/j/3270264483

Climata runs from 30 April until 17 October 2020. It has been developed with Lasse-Marc Riek and the Goethe Institut and is held in collaboration with Norsk Teknisk Mueum and Notam. The residents participating alongside Riek are Teju Adisa-Farrar (US), Siri Austeen (NO), Sarah Kazmi (PK), Margrethe Iren Pettersen (NO), Elly Stormer Vadseth (NO), Gustavo Valdivia (PE), Geraldine Vanspauwen (BE) and Maria Wang Kvalheim (NO)
