Outlines / Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec

Outlines
CD launch and site-specific sound performance
by Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec

Sunday, October 22, 2017 / 20:00h

CD Outlines is a version of an ongoing performative sound project Outline by Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec, started in 2010, and one of its variations, a sound installation Caressing the Studio (2012). Both projects are based on the underlying principle of using a recording device as a sound producing source in order to investigate how touch, presence, nearness, movement, tactility and materiality manifest in and through sound and conversely, how through the activity of listening to recorded or mediated sound these same sensations can be evoked and experienced. By exploring sonic horizons that appear as a consequence of tactile contact between the performer and the interior of a place, an immeasurable and transient spatiality comes into being consisting of trajectories, volumes, speeds and densities. As such, this sonic manifestation outlines the material edges of a place as well as its negative double – the empty volume it contains.

For the occasion of the CD launch at Errant Sound Project Space, Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec will perform site-specific sound performance Outline.

“Only the partition makes noise. As it moves forward and creates two inverted silences, it taps out a rhythm, it whistles or moans. (…) [A] sort of rubbing together of spaces at the vanishing points of their frontier. These junctions have no place. They indicate themselves by passing cries and momentary noises. These frontiers are illegible; they can only be heard as a single stream of sounds, so continuous is the tearing off that annihilates the points through which it passes.” Michel de Certeau, The Practice of Everyday Life

The CD is published by Errant Bodies Records, and available at Les presses du réel.

TAO G. VRHOVEC SAMBOLEC is working with the invisible ephemeral phenomena and the notion of space. His artistic practice is a poetic exploration of relationships between transitory and temporal flows like sound and weather phenomena and architectural and social spaces they inhabit. In his installations, he makes architecture sensitive to its immediate ephemeral surroundings and enhances the temporal dimension of architecture by creating situations where the outside and inside, the unpredictable and constructed, the permanent and temporal, time and space converse. His works encompass interdisciplinary and mixed media installations, sound interventions and electro acoustic music.
He has shown and performed in various museums, project spaces and festivals, amongst others in Kapelica Gallery – Ljubljana, Ars Electronica Festival – Linz, AV Festival – Newcastle, Museum of Modern Art – Ljubljana, MSUM – Ljubljana,ŠKUC Gallery – Ljubljana, Madrid Abierto – Madrid, Errant Bodies Project Space – Berlin, Gwangju Museum of Art – South Korea, Sonic Acts Festival – Amsterdam, Research Pavilion at 57th Venice Biennale, among others.

How to participate? And before that, how to think participation? How to address the constitution and the agency of the singular? How to think the coexistence of intertwined presences? And how to create conditions, how to open possibilities? This lecture explores this territory taking in account, in structure and content, the specific setting of its presentation.

Alex Arteaga’s research integrates aesthetic and philosophical practices relating to aesthetics, the emergence of sense, meaning and knowledge and the relationships between aurality, architecture and the environment through phenomenological and enactivist approaches. He studied piano, music theory, composition, electroacoustic music, and architecture in Berlin and Barcelona and received a PhD in philosophy from the Humboldt University. He currently heads the Auditory Architecture Research Unit, lectures in the MA Sound Studies and Sonic Arts (Berlin University of the Arts), is professor for contemporary philosophy and artistic research at the Research Master in Art and Design (EINA / Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona) and develops his research project Architecture of Embodiment.

The lecture will be held in English!

Is virtual reality part of reality?
In my lecture I will examine the extent to which imagination contributes to our perception of reality. I will test out the relationship between imagination and perception according to the ontology of virtual reality, which Australian philosopher David Chalmers calls a genuine form of perceivable albeit digital reality.
Gabriel studied philosophy, classical philology, modern German literature and German studies in Hagen, Bonn, and Heidelberg, where he received his PhD in 2005 on Schelling’s late philosophy under advisor Jens Halfwassen. He was a guest researcher at the University of Lisbon in 2005, and interim member of the academic senate in Heidelberg from 2006-2008. He completed his postdoctoral qualitification on skepticism and idealism in Heidelberg in 2008. From 2008-09 he was assistant professor at the Department of Philosophy of the New School for Social Research in New York City. Since July 2009, Gabriel teaches theory of knowledge and philosophy of the modern age at the University of Bonn.
The lecture will be held in English!

Suplex Collective
 / Amplified Rumors

Opening: Wednesday, September 20 / 18:00 – 21:00 Gallery Hours: September 23, 24, & 30, 15:00 – 18:00

 A city –even the most adverse of all– exudes its own antidote,

which people dispose in the search of instant and earthly utopias,

that gradually build compatible areas of freedom

and well-being within a generational scope.

In the part that corresponds to everyone,

each one can renounce to the catastrophe.

Sergio González Rodríguez 1950 – 2017

Suplex is an online and physical publishing platform created by Mexican experimental musicians and artists Israel and Diego Martinez, and researcher Nelly Carrillo in 2009, as a side project of their record label Abolipop (founded in 2002), with the aim of reflecting on social and political issues through sound and collaboration.

EB_Suplex_Voces

Amplified Rumors exhibits three of the most important projects developed by Suplex on the last years in Mexico:

– Temacapulín (Sounds of resistance), an archive of field recordings, interviews, photos, videos (captured by drones) and other research stuff, have been used to spread information about Temacapulín, a town located in the west side of Mexico which is condemned to be flooded due to the construction of a water dam that only benefits the industrial sector and politicians. Through several exhibitions and talks in collaboration with Temacapulín’s inhabitants, Suplex has expanded the communicative scope of the resistance.

– On the way, interviews with Central American migrants during their short stay in Guadalajara, as a step before going North and trying to reach the United States, are the main source for this project, adding research data on various formats, video and photos. Most of these migrants fail in the attempt, some do it again, others return home, while the less fortunate are used by Mexican drug cartels for their operations, or are killed.

– Voces. Santa María la Ribera, in 2014 Suplex began producing this publication with the support of Museo Universitario del Chopo in Mexico City, totally focused on the cultural spirit and the people of Santa María la Ribera, one of the oldest popular neighborhoods in the capital. Voces is distributed for free on the streets of Santa María using voice and recordings to get the attention of the neighbors. The online version has been a platform to explore the soundscape of the area and to make other sonic experiments about its history.

Prof. Dr. Hans-Jörg Rheinberger

The Hands of the Engraver–Albert Flocon meets Gaston Bachelard

Between the end of the 1940s and the late 1950s, a collaboration of a peculiar sort developed in Paris between the copper engraver of German origin Albert Flocon and Gaston Bachelard, the French philosopher of science and poetologist of imagination. The outcome of this encounter is not very well known even by experts of Bachelard’s oeuvre or of post-war art in France. Flocon and Bachelard together created a series of art books to which the former contributed the engravings and the latter enriched them with shorter or longer commentaries. These commentaries take the form of reflections on the hand of the engraver, the resistance it experiences, and the constructive forces it sets free. The encounter will be described through the presentation of a number of selected examples that will give an impression of the entire oeuvre. It will also shed light on the connection between Bachelard’s poetological and the epistemological interests.

Prof. Dr. Hans-Jörg Rheinberger is a molecular biologist and science historian and studied philosophy, linguistics, and biology in Tübingen and Berlin. He is an honorary professor of the history of science at the TU Berlin, Dr. h.c. at the ETH Zurich, member of the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences and the Leopoldina, and former director of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin. His main focus today is the history and epistemology of the experiment and the relationship between the arts and the sciences.

The lecture will be held in English!

RADIO ARTEN

Thursday, September 7th, 7 pm / Donnerstag, 7. September 19 h

Sound art on air/ aktuelle Radio-Klangkunst

Two pieces playing with radio genres and new concepts of text/sound compositon

– Galapagos-Kreuzblende (SWR 2017, 36′) von Antje Vowinckel

  • break/bar

– NACHRICHTENTSTELLT (SWR 2016, 32′) von Marc Matter

afterwards: discussion about making of and presentation of inspiration resources with Marc Matter, Antje Vowinckel and Frank Halbig.
Moderated by: Golo Föllmer.
The pieces use German language. Discussion in English/German.

doors: 7 pm, start: 7.30 pm

Galapagos -Kreuzblende simulates a 36 minute cross-fade between science and sound art. It ends as a hybrid sonore. A speech on speciation among birds step by steps morphes into a sound texture employing virtual voices that adopt  the sounds of Darwin’s finches.

Antje Vowinckel is a Berlin based sound artist, radio artist and performer. She works for a variety of public radio stations such as WDR, DRadio, SWR and also creates musical live performances and sound installations. http://www.antjevowinckel.de

NACHRICHTENTSTELLT is inspired by the specific sound of radio news that are transformed into a series of sound poetry compositions.

Acousmatic Lecture – Birgit Schneider

Prof. Dr. Birgit Schneider

Forms of an Ecological Aesthetics of Climate and Climate Change

The climate is invisible because of its scientific definition as long-term weather statistics. Starting from this postulated an-aesthetic of weather, the lecture will outline the visualization strategies that made perception of the climate possible via early forms of data visualization. In early climate research these perceptions were tied not only to the dispositifs of instrument-based measurements but also of organic sensing that is inseparable to climate perception. Historical examples will be contrasted with today’s visualizations of anthropogenic climate change, which integrate the human factor into the ecology of the climate.

Dr. Birgit Schneider studied aesthetics, media theory, and media art at the Karlsruhe University of Art and Design, Goldsmiths College London, and Humboldt University in Berlin. Since 2009, she is researching climatic imagery as a Dilthey Fellow at the European Media Studies program at the University of Potsdam. Her work focuses on the field of image, cultural, and media studies: graphic methods such as maps and diagrams, climatic data visualization, digital images; the theory and technological history of textiles and the punch card; camouflage—strategies of invisibility around 1900; TV history + interference and disruption; art and media history of sound & vision.

The lecture will be held in German!
