The evening is dedicated to the question of how one can describe local scenes of sound art concerning its formation of members, their artistic background, artistic interactions/collaborations, sound aesthetics. How big are the local scenes and how and where do they show their work? How is the resonance of the audience?
But also we want to exchange thoughts on how sound art is reflecting the local and incorporating it in a sound memory through the use of site specific recordings or semantic references in works. Three sound artists from different countries (Karen Power/Cork, Magdi Mostafa/Cairo, Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec/Ljubljana/Bergen) and the experimental musician Mazen Kerbaj from Beirut will talk about the scenes of their home cities.
This evening is part of a continuous discussion on global sound art by the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program and Deutschlandradio Kultur
In cooperation with Errant Bodies
