Sound, Language & Position with AGF

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.

Sound Occupations: Open Call for Artworks

Eligibility:

Sound Occupations are part of Student International film festival’s (STIFF) supporting program (26. – 29.11.2020.) developed under the Rijeka Capital of Culture 2020. We invite artists to send us their work that explores, records, changes, interprets, produces or in any other way interacts with the sounds of everyday life; in any preferred artistic medium.

Exhibition Sound Occupations is dedicated to sound as a primary generator of everyday and artistic impulses. 

Sound could be understood as an epistemological formative instrument that enables us to analyse urban and imagined spaces but also as an aesthetic tool to help us build and rebuild these landscapes in practice. 

Soundscape determines life’s rhythm, it influences people’s emotions, their motion and thoughts. It occupies, manipulates, alternates, provokes and defines our realities. Examining the sounds of a city or a certain space and community, we can find out a lot about social, political and economic forces at work in those spaces: who and what produces the sounds? Who controls it? Which sounds are dominant and which ones are missing? In what way does the sound connect or separate individuals, groups and images? What happens when a certain sound disappears?

We are searching for works that will explore, enrich and play with the subject of SOUND. Through innovative audio-visual content, objects, installations, live actions and performances, experimental videos, visual poetry  etc. we invite artists to alter the role of sound and make it dominant in relation to the image. The submitted proposals therefore may refer to different areas of artistic expression with the central focus on examining urban soundscapes, exploring ambient and the changes that happen in the sounds of everyday life. 

The aim of the Sound Occupations exhibition is to depart from a still existing dichotomy that separates art and reality, and to create works that contribute to a broader, fuller understanding of art and today’s society. 

Selected works will be exhibited during the STIFF Film Festival (26. – 29. 11. 2020.) as part of the Sound Occupations exhibition in SKC Gallery in Rijeka.

Activosónico residencies will take place in Centro Negra, the current headquarters of AADK Spain located in the town of Blanca, Murcia. They have been conceived to offer time and space for analysis and artistic research linked to music and sound, encouraging reflection upon the historical, cultural and geographical context of the region.
