Language and the body have the voice in common. The voice exceeds the humanness of language, and propagates as sounds in the surroundings. The voice can be a private sound, or a collective language. How does sound turn into words, to sentences, to stories? And inversely? What can be found on the way from the comprehensible word to the unintelligible sound? What is left in the voice after the disappearance of semantics (the meaning of the words)? And what happens in the meeting between the semantically satiated voices and the acoustic answer from the surroundings?
kha = ‘pfui’, etc.
We will explore the nearby surroundings of the area around the Gängeviertel through our senses, language and voices. Impressions from the local area shapes the raw foundation for an experiment, that revolves around drawing word-like abstractions out of the actual surroundings. The stories of the place will then be processed with sound poetry, via repetition, modulation, permutation, harmony and other methods, with the purpose of dissolving their meanings and hierarchies. Finally they will be returned, via the voice, performatively and/or electroacoustically, as aural objects to the surroundings from where they came.
“Radikal Unsichtbar – Centre for Collective Learning and Radical Listening” is a new forum based in Raum Linksrechts in Gängeviertel, Hamburg, for including and interdisciplinary discussion, collective learning and production, focusing on the diverse aesthetic strategies and approaches within contemporary nordic sound art practises through a series of acts consisting of workshops and artistic experiments. Radikal Unsichtbar is curated and facilitated by the danish sound artist Louise Vind Nielsen.
