The inclusion of multiple collaborators across different academic and artistic fields is essential in understanding  A Bodily State of Noise conceptual basis of noise as a socio-political agent that shapes systems of representation and paradigm of power preservation and information consumption rather than simply an aesthetic /sensorial form. Hence, a need for a collaborative discourse analyzing the structural form in which noise affects every bit of our lives was the premise for the creation of the project. How can noise, instrumentalized in shaping restrictive and violent regimes of control and power imbalance, create alternative futures?

Organisation:

CAMP is a residential arts facility in the French Pyrenees. It's a place where great art is made, new movements are formed, new ideas are explored and groundbreaking people are nurtured. CAMP is located in Aulus les Bains, the last village before the France/Spain Pyrenean frontier chain. The location is spectacular - we are nestled at 750m above sea level, surrounded by snowcapped peaks over 3000m high, ancient forests and cascading waterfalls. There are eagles, lammergeiers, vultures, ibex and bears. Walk out of the residency, and within ten minutes you are completely alone in one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in Europe. Aulus les Bains is also a spa village - there are hot water springs, and a thermal spa in the village to take advantage of the healing and relaxing properties of the water.
    
Workshop dates: 08/06/2022 - 13/06/2022
    
This is the second in a two-week series exploring the space and connections between audio and visual art - the first workshop is here. Both workshops stand alone, they are complete events within themselves, and can be taken separately. However, for maximum depth of experience we recommend signing up to both and staying two weeks. What's more, if you sign up to both, you get a 50% discount on the second one and free accommodation in between the two sessions! Just book workshop 1, and drop us a line for your discount code.

This workshop is aimed at musicians interested in adding visual dimensions to their work, visual/installation artists interested in delving into sonic elements, and anyone with an interest in exploring the space where audio and visual arts meet, whether in a live performance, installation or studio/workshop environment.

Over five days, you will explore a wide range of subjects, techniques and approaches, with expert guidance from five of the most exciting artists in this field: Romain Tardy, Loran Delforge, Zoë Mc Pherson, Alessandra Leone, and Tarik Barri.

Days 1 & 2

Working with AV installations in a site-specific context, with Romain Tardy and Loran Delforge. For more than 10 years, visual artist Romain and music composer Loran (aka Before Tigers, Squeaky Lobster) have collaborated on various AV installations around the globe: from mapping projections on cactii in Mexico to a giant low-resolution LED matrix in a desert in China, their complementary artistic practices have used the continuous challenge of working in unusual places as the cement of their artistic collaboration.

For their two days, the duo will discuss the process behind their creations, and will also propose a hands-on approach with a simple and participatory AV installation that will take advantage of CAMP’s beautiful surroundings.

Day 3

Audiovisual duo Alessandra Leone and Zoë Mc Pherson have been creating, collaborating and curating audiovisual projects together since 2018; they founded AV label and platform SFX in 2020. On day 3 of the workshop, they will give an insight into their audiovisual collaborative process, working on audiovisual albums, pieces, and performing audiovisual shows. Collaborative practice is important in their work, and within SFX - they’ll present tools for better collaboration within the creative and presentation process.

Themes and methods that will be approached during the workshop include creating music for visuals, creating visuals for sound, visual and sound techniques, creative process, team building, professional AV environment, etc.

Days 4 & 5

We'll close out the workshop with days of immersion into the otherworldly visionscapes of video artist Stacie Ant. Stacie Ant is a new media artist currently based in Berlin. Stacie draws on her experiences as a female artist while developing the critical views of our technologically-saturated contemporary society that inform her work. Using 3d animation, installation, and augmented reality, she reinvents elements of contemporary culture through fictional, maximalist narratives. She has created mind-blowing visuals for DJ Hell, Uncanny Valley, Mr Eff and others, and has exhibited worldwide.

Using AR and face filters, audio-visual Instagram filters and more, Stacie will work through a variety of practices for creating videos and performance visuals for music.
