A ONE-WEEK PROJECT
April: 24, 25, 26, 27, 28
9:00 – 13:00
You are invited to board an improvised sonic spaceship taking off and leaving behind the formal understanding of sound, music, and listening.
Setting up an improvised sonic laboratory full of musical equipment in Hans-Litten_Schule between the 24th and 28th of April you are invited to join the project as a crew member co-creating and co-navigating through the emergent soundscapes.
The daily drop-in sessions between 9 am and 13 pm are designed to get entangled in newly produced, semi-fictional narratives looking back at the possible futures imagined together. Getting lost in echoes and delays, teleporting voices, the spaceship engines are made of synthesizers and powered by the rhythms of the drum machines. Orchestrated by the artist Anton Kats, the spaceship and the crew members will embark on the journey towards an undiscovered planet in a far-off place, many sound years in space.
Aimed to experimentally and practically explore possibilities of sound and music the residues of the sonic adventure will be presented during a group exhibition in A:D Curatorial between the 7th and 9th of July. The laboratory is open to all age groups, and backgrounds and everybody interested in sound and music with/or without prior experience. A commitment to take part in every session is desired, yet not conditional.
Anton Kats (r. Kherson, Ukraine) is an artist, musician and dancer. Kats’ practice derives from informal everyday relationships and takes form of installations, performances, sound and radio interventions, and learning sites. Concerned with the interplay between pragmatic and aesthetic dimensions of practice, Kats’ works have been exhibited and performed in SAVVY Contemporary, the Serpentine Galleries, Tate Modern, Bergen Kunsthall; 10th Berlin Biennale; Haus der Kulturen der Welt; and documenta 14, Athens and Kassel among others.
