sonic explorers

6 young European sound artists will go for one month on project- and research resindcies to Theran/Iran, Dakar/Senegal and Valparaiso/Chile (2 to each place) to work there together as a group with 2 young local artists and a local mentor. These groups will explore the cities from the position of listening. How do cities sound today? How different is listening in other cultures? In the focus of the project lays the artistic examination of urban phenomena from the sonic perspective, their interpretation and transformation with multiple artistic methods.

sonotopia – the sonic explorers

A residency project in Valparaiso/Chile, Dakar/Senegal, Tehran/Iran and Bonn/Germany by bonn hoeren in the frame of Beethoven’s 250th birthday year 

To open up the world for one’s self or to open up one’s self to the world – both processes commence with listening. Our perception of the world “out there” begins with listening, long before we are born. The act of listening is the foundation for every type of communication and social interaction. Both of the latter have to be learned.
In stereophony, as natural a reproduction of reality as possible is created through the spatial shifting of two sound sources. sonotopia – the sonic explorers interprets this shift in perspective metaphorically.

6 young sound artist (former sonotopia prize winners) will undertake a project and research residency in one of the partner cities in 2019. In each city two local artist and a local mentor will join. In 2020 all groups will come together in Bonn, mirroring the process and work towards a final exhibition.

Ruins & Beginnings: The Dom – ino Sessions

During Tuned City – Messene (2018), architects Christian Espinoza and René Rissland established an experimental structure based on Le Corbusier’s Dom-ino House as part of their research during the festival. The structure is comprised of the concrete framing of an unfinished house. Espinoza and Rissland generously invited people to use it as they imagined. Lanterner (Steve Bates and Marc-Alexandre Reinhardt) proposed a series of live improvisations with the other artists who have participated here.

DOM-INO VIBRATIONS docu

In 1914 Swiss architect Le Corbusier designed his Dom-ino System. This Construction System was to be completely independent of the floor plans of the house, thereby giving freedom to design the interior configuration. Long before Dom-ino Le Corbusier began his career with studies about Greece. In fact he was fascinated by the ancient architecture of the Greek Polis.

Mario de Vega – FALL installation documentation

Performative installation programmed to operate 24 continuous hours. Within this time frame, an algorithm modulates amplitude and increase resonant qualities of 16 channels of white noise. 2 surfaces of 310x230cm were designed and installed in relation to the architecture of the exhibition space. The surfaces rotate independently in a fixed angle, acting as passive filters.
