SONIC ISLANDS – Mirrored perceptions between Tierra del Fuego + Rügen
March and September 2023
SONIC ISLANDS focuses on the various auditory aspects of the TERRA IGNOTAproject and is part of TIF 2023/24. We are interested in the meaning of sound as a semantic system and as a form of artistic articulation. Questions about origin, identity, intercultural understanding but also about perception, legibility and interaction with the environment, social processes and structures beyond visually connoted reference systems are the subject of our joint research. Listening and making audible to stimulate changes of perspective in the process of artistic research and knowledge production as well as in communicating to an audience.
Concert Lecture of the Sono-Choreographic Collective at the Grand Opening of the new Academy for Theatre and Digitality, Dortmund – 2nd of September 2023 & at the Impuls Festival für Neue Musik, Leipzig – 13th of October
In Instrumentalities the Sono-Choreographic Collective unpacks aspects of their artistic-scientific research Common Grounds. Scaling 20 years of hourly environmental data into 60 minutes, this participatory concert-lecture presents some of the methods developed for listening, sensing and understanding climate change from an embodied perspective. These include various sonic and somatic techniques that connect the planetary scale with individual and collective sensory scales of participants. The concert-lecture unfolds around a table that is a hybrid surface for discourse, policy, strategy, negotiation, communication and communion.
Titled Instrumentalities for Common Grounds, this participatory lecture-concert unpacks aspects of our work in Common Grounds, and presents some of the methods we developed for listening, sensing and understanding climate change from embedded perspectives. These include various scaling techniques that come together to establish what we call mental-mergings: Techniques that give access to sensing planetary phenomena and thus connecting the macro-global perspective with the microcosms of individual, somatic selves.
I am part of the just started Terra Ignota field trip 1.st of March – 13 th of March and forum 14.st of March – 17 th of March 23 at Tierra de Fuego Chile.
Here you find more information and can follow our journey.
Terra Ignota Forum (TIF) is a field laboratory that seeks to develop and implement a contemporary archive on the so-called “intercultural contact zone” (Selk’nam, Kawesqar and Yagán) located in Yendegaia National Park (YNP). The project is deployed in two stages, the first is the continuation of our interdisciplinary research in the territory and field forum (2023). The process and research will be documented and published in different media, individual artistic projects developed further and presented in the second stage to the public beginning of 2024 at the Universidad de Magallanes, Punta Arenas.
