We warmly welcome you to ANIMA MUNDI #2, the second edition of a new project Errant Sound has started this year! 

ANIMA MUNDI is a project that is based on cooperation and exchange of experiences in the fields of sound art and sonic performance art, addressing issues of ecology and sustainability. The specificity of sound-based art lies in its strong connection to the environment. As sound artists often perform recordings and field activities in nature, urban environments or in relationship to architecture, their practice is strongly relational. These themes are reflected by ANIMA MUNDI’s focus on the relationship between humans and their surroundings – both human interaction, the shaping of shared space and care for nature. Sound sensitivity becomes the starting point for a deeper understanding of our coexistence.

ANIMA MUNDI aims at establishing a network of sound artists/ artists working with the means of sound, that facilitates artistic exchange on the most existential questions of our time: How can we meet and understand the climate crisis? How to deal with the environmental transformations? How can artists, cultural spaces and a society in general practice and support sustainability? What can we learn from each other regarding possible solutions?

The exhibition and event series will accommodate sound performances, sound installations, experimental approaches to music and sonic experiences, workshops, lectures and audio releases. 

ANIMA MUNDI started as a collaboration between Enrrant Sound (Berlin), Miejski Ośrodek Sztuki (MOS Art) and Terminal 08 in Gorzów, Poland. The sound performance-event of the first edition took place at MOS Art on 29th October with works by the Berlin-based artists and Errant Sound-members Julia Cremers and Janine Eisenächer as well as by JD Zazie connected to Liebig 12. It was accompanied by Janine Eisenächer’s exhibition at Terminal 08 that ran until 2nd December. Now, the second edition takes place in Berlin and presents several works by the Poznań-based artists Monika Wińczyk, Hubert Wińczyk (also performing together as the duo Monster Hurricane Wihajster) and Jakub Kosecki as well as a work by Errant Sound-member Jeremy Woodruff. 

We’re looking forward to seeing you and to cheering with you on this exciting Sound Art-year at Errant Sound!

Monika Wińczyk: “Covering” woven art, sound installation

A place to sit comfortably, listen and connect. 

Covering – a protective layer, cover. Material surface that absorbs smell, touch, intensity of usage, the real taste. My shell is shaped like a carpet. I made it myself, it is warm, pleasant and comfortable. This decorative element, complementing the floor of my interior, transforms the intimate sounds of mine and of another close enveloping person.

Hubert Wińczyk: “Tearthdrip” vertical sound installation (IV infusion, bass speaker, trampoline)

A subtle fall of a drop unleashes a deep wave. Tears have circa 1% of salt, the infusions have 0,9% of NaCl. We hydrate us with what we cry. Looking in the bin at the backyard of a hospital, you can feel a thrill of horror seeing how much plastic waste is thrown out after one day. Multiply it by all the hospitals in a town, by towns that have hospitals (think of towns without a hospital, of hospitals without equipment), and you can see tons of plastic that is crucial to save human lives but on a long distance leading to the extinction of life. There is no solution of this paradox. The real ecological art is no art at all. This new work is a continuation of themes earlier appearing in the artistic output of Hubert Wińczyk – the fall, vertical symbolism, reflection on wholenesw.

“My Mycorrhiza” (mushroom-shaped speakers, box, kefir grains, cow milk, spoken poem)

The roots of my thoughts connect to the hyphae. The kefir fungi penetrates my body and gives it immunity and other new powers. Mushrooms want my matter, maybe my thoughts, too. I want them. It’s a mutual attraction. So, after death, I would prefer to be consumed by the mycelium so that thought-matter would circulate in a large, chaotic plantation.

Monster Hurricane Wihajster: “Eartheaters”

vocal & body performance

Two persons: their voices & some matter

Is heavier the tone of a rock on the mountain, or the tone of a grain of salt deep in the ground? Our voices bubbling out from our mouths build a bridge to communicate between ourselves and the nature. The murmurs of pleasure, cheers of delight, bring us closer to the Oneness, beyond the heaviness and lightness. The sounds come from the throats through the lips,, but the whole body speaks and transmits the visions received from earth. This is a sound poetry performance inspired by the book “Eartheater” by Dolores Reyes.

Image: Jakub Kosecki, Anti-sun

Jakub Kosecki: “Patron Saint of the Cause Holding the Regalia of Effect” (2022) scenographic installation (square timber, fencing mask, ghillie suit, ceiling coffer, bookbinding glue, metal wire, ‘80s military enema stand, polycaprolactone, acrylic paint, paper, 4 Monacor SMB-130 speakers, sounds of fire of various origin)

The installation depicts a figure cloaked in a flame-imitating suit as it presents two attributes – the sword of discourse and a call to an auto-da-fé. Sounds of a fire can be heard emanating from within the figure. The depicted Patron is a tragic figure, manifesting contradiction and inconsistency.

“Anti-sun” (2021) sculpture-object/ instrument (scrapped satellite tv antenna, scraps of steel sheet metal, acrylic paint, transducer, a fragment of Dark Souls character dialogue)The “Anti-sun” plays a fragment of Dark Souls character dialogue: “I will stay behind, to gaze at the sun. The sun is a wondrous body. Like a magnificent father! If only I could be so grossly incandescent!

Jeremy Woodruff: “Klangkompost”

A small group of cellphones in a ring play sounds from a garden and sounds donated by members of those gardens whose lands have disappeared from the Berlin landscape. “Peace of Land”, “Himmelbeet” and “Sonnenbeet” are all gardens, where Woodruff made field recordings, who subsequently lost the land they were planted on. What forms of social permaculture can sustain a garden? What sort of sounds could help raise awareness in civic planning to help preserve urban gardens?
