VICENS VACCA

Presentation 18 October 2019 – 19:00h

Errant Sound – Sound Art Project Space
Rungestraße 20, 10179 Berlin
(U8 Heinrich-Heine-Str. / S Jannowitzbrücke)

Errant Sound presents for the first time in Germany works by Vicens Vacca. For this occasion, we will show two works conceived for mobil phones by the catalan sound artist, which involve the audience participation by transforming each phone into an active element of the sound pieces.

One of the pieces is called GRAND HALL LAMENT (1997-2018) and it is an application for mobile phone of non-interactive sound-art that reproduces a series of tracks in a continuous and randomized sequence that is different on each device. Downloading the app will install it permanently on the smartphone with no further requirements. It can be downloaded from the Apple Store searching “GRAND HALL by VACCA”. Or click here https://apps.apple.com/de/app/grand-hall/id603100262

GRAND HALL LAMENT is designed to be listened to on a minimum of two phones simultaneously but there is no limit to the number of terminals used.

The second piece is ZEN (2016-2018) is a generator of electronic music that composes and emits music using existent sounds from radio broadcasts. It is an atmosphere that builds climates of unbroken sound not to be listened to with attention. ZEN generates music using the energy of others. The app is available on the AppStore. To download the app. please search “ZEN by VACCA”. Or click here https://apps.apple.com/de/app/zen-by-vacca/id1080318128

Since Vicens Vacca is unable to travel due health issues, the presentation will be done by his assistant Victor Pérez Ballestero and moderated by Mario Asef.

Vicens Vacca (Granollers, 1954) is a catalan artist with more than 30 years of experience in the conceptual art field, who has experienced the use of sound as an artistic medium. Descendant of a family of jazz musicians, he chose contemporary art breaking with tradition. Since its earliest works of sound art, dating back to 1990, sound is never an additional complement, but a corporeal element with plastic qualities, materializing in the space of action as a sculptural object.

He has exhibited in art institutions such as Museu Picasso, La Virreina Image Center (Barcelona), Museo Patio Herreriano (Valladolid) or Iklectik (London).

The evening is kindly supported by Instituto Ramon Llull and the ICEC.

Neben der individuellen Bedrohung durch Demenz müssen wir uns den technischen Bedingungen eines kollektiven Gedächtnisses stellen (CD, mp3, Wikipedia,  Youtube), die sich permanent verändern und deren Haltbarkeit oft nicht einzuschätzen ist. Immer mehr verlassen wir uns auf stets gegenwärtige Information in Online-Archiven. Doch mit zeitlichem Abstand zeigt sich, dass die Erinnerung zwischen den Links hindurchflutscht, die die Verzeichnisse vorsehen.

Goethe to go. Eine Sprechlandschaft. Von Antje Vowinckel

Seit einigen Jahren entwickelt Antje Vowinckel die Methode des  automatischen Sprechens. Im letzten Jahr schickte sie zehn  „Automaten“ auf den Goethewanderweg in Ilmenau. Auf ihrem Weg sprechen die Performer ununterbrochen und schleusen alle Beobachtungen in ihren Sprechfluss ein. Im Goethehäuschen entdecken sie „Wanderers Nachtlied“, das weltberühmte Gedicht, das Goethe einst an die Wand kritzelte, in fünfzehn Übersetzungen. Aus  zehn fremdsprachigen Übersetzungen dolmetschen sie das Gedicht, an das sich fast jeder erinnern kann,  zurück ins Deutsche.

Meerschallschwamm und Schweigefang. Von Ulrike Janssen und Marc Matter

„Es handelt um: Aufzeichnungen aus Vergangenzeit: terrestrisch Wissen, haltet fest Schall. Und Ton und Kling und Sprech …“ So beginnt ein Audio-Guide, der aus den Trümmern eines zerstörten Museums gerettet werden konnte. Dort wurden Apparate zur Tonaufzeichnung ausgestellt, die bisher unbekannt waren oder nur in der Literatur oder der Mythologie vorkamen: Ein Meerschallschwamm, ein Schweigefang. Nun ist es gelungen, Teile dieses Audio-Guides zu restaurieren und wieder hörbar zu machen.

Meet & Greet Sam Trubridge – The Performance Arcade Festival NZ

Talk wednesday June 19th from 19:00 on

APA-B e.V. – The Association for Performance Art in Berlin e.V. invites to a Meet & Greet with Sam Trubridge, the director of The Performance Arcade in Wellington, New Zealand.

Sam Trubridge will introduce the festival and be available for Q&A. Moderation will be done by Teena Lange.
The next festival will be held from Feb 20 – March 1, 2020. The Call for Proposals is open and ongoing, the deadline is August 2, 2019.

This Meet & Greet event is free and no registration is required.
There will be drinks on donation and snacks.
English will be the main language.
All are welcome.

The Performance Arcade is a unique event. It puts experimental performance disciplines (from theatre, dance, performance art, live art, installation, design, sonic art, media art, public intervention, social sculpture, etc) into a highly visible public space on Wellington Waterfront. We use shipping containers, scaffolding, and street graphics to create a multi-layered spatial framework for works selected from around the world. Sometimes works use the shipping container as a gallery/stage space, whilst other works travel through/into the city and waterfront environment. Between 60-90,000 people encounter the event every year.

As a research project the focus is on breaking the usual frames of reference for performance (gallery, theatre, screen) and investigating a more volatile relationship with the city and the passing public that is not guided by the disciplinary routines of familiar spaces. Its location on Wellington Waterfront also explores interests in the sea / coast / ocean as a space of performance, using the shipping container as a symbol for global commerce, migration, and crisis.

The website includes archives of all works presented over the past 9 years: www.theperformancearcade.com

Berlin-based artists such as Samin Son, Janine Eisenächer, Steffi Weismann, and Hans Kellet (Princessin Hans) have already participated.

„The weaning of goods; a mechanical affair“


A film that captures the mechanisms and timing regulating rhythms within port terminals. To find out and become aware of these places dedicated to the primordial transfer of good, and to reflect on the permeability of its ontological status, in relation to man,society and retail trade.

ABOUT THE AUDIOVISUAL SCREENINGS PROGRAM
What does it mean to explore sound art as an audiovisual practice? Today there are too many facades of the audio-visual phenomenon, it’s aesthetic, theoretical and epistemological reception to speak about audiovisual works as relation between sound and image. That’s why the AUDIOVISUAL SCREENINGS SERIES at Errant Sounds wants to look at audiovisuality as a medium of sound art, seeking to work out the possibilieties of video screening as a sonic experience, focusing on how an audio-visual input could influence our reception of the content and how our habitual multi-sensory perception could be trained to focus on the acoustic facade of a (video) storytelling. To ground this research both on a theoretical and practical level, emphasizing it through works by international sound artists working in different ways within sound for video, there will be not a fixed
presenation format. The AUDIOVISUAL SCREENINGS PROGRAM will interact with screening possibilities in the space, developing different settings and listening modalities depending on the presenting artist and the
presented work distinguishing between i.e documentary work, video art or interactive installation. Being aware of the interdisciplinary field of sound and visual streaming, it will be necessary to ground the presentation methods on fields connotative for sound art as acoustics and sound studies, musicology, media studies, interactive media, sound design, geography, urban planning ad studies, anthropology. The screening will be installed and/or performed with different streaming technologies and technical equipment, putting the focus on the presentation and fruition during the single events by the invited public. For this reason the program includes talks by the presenting artists and Errant Sound artists, external contributors, as audience itself as active partecipant of every event of the program.

The program will be divided in five parts
Stream I: Field AUDIOVISUAL
Stream II: Performed AUDIOVISUAL
Stream III: Installed AUDIOVISUAL
Stream IV: Mediated AUDIOVISUAL
Stream V: Interactive AUDIOVISUAL

Titanic

Sound performance, Friday May 10, 2019, 7-10pm, performance at 8pm

Join us this Friday at Errant Sound for a sound performance by artist Erik Smith. The performance is part of his Berlin-specific project Titanic, one of three distinct installations currently on view in his exhibition Displacements.

The project, inspired by the salvaging of a wooden shelf from an underground bunker in Berlin- Mitte, draws on sculptural and sonic means to allude to the site’s eerily associative, contrasting phases: a theater in the nineteenth-century known for its performances of Jacques Offenbach’s Orpheus in the Underworld, a neighborhood air-raid bunker during WW2, and today the newly opened four-star Titanic hotel.

For the performance, Smith uses a series of six specially modified turntables to live mix Orpheus in the Underworld 78s with techno and electronica records at radically reduced speeds, rendering these contrasting genres unfamiliar. This breakdown in the music produces a droning, multilayered atmosphere, recalling detonations and other abstract soundscapes.

Come early for an informal, artist-led tour of the exhibition; the performance will take place at 8pm and run for approximately 45 min.

Erik Smith

Opening: April 24, 7– 10pm
Exhibition: April 25 – May 15, 2019
Opening Times: Thurs–Sat, 3–7pm and by appointment

Displacements presents selected works by Berlin-based, American artist Erik Smith that highlight his use of sound and other sculptural means to evoke the atmospherics and dynamics of place. Featured at Errant Sound’s new space is a survey of projects developed over the past several years from various contexts including Berlin, Miami, and most recently Denver, US. Smith’s site-focused practice evolves out of the physical exploring, salvaging and/or excavating of urban contexts and often employs found objects and sound as points of departure for reflecting on the spatial, cultural, and historical dimensions of given locations.

Included in the exhibition is a selection of audio and sculptural works from three different projects/contexts focusing on Smith’s interest in transitional sites as agglomerations of competing uses and meanings. His most-recent project Ghosts (2018) revolves around the visual and acoustic trope of the flicker in evoking the precarious status of a gallery building and former 1950s-era auto repair shop located in a long-depressed neighborhood of Denver, CO. For Titanic (2016-), inspired by the salvaging of a wooden shelf from a bunker in Berlin-Mitte, a series of modified turntables creates a dark, acoustic atmosphere that alludes to the site’s eerily associative, contrasting phases: a German theater famed for performances of Jacques Offenbach’s Orpheus in the Underworld in the nineteenth century; a sprawling underground bunker during WW2; and the recently opened 4-star Titanic hotel today. And finally AABBCCDV (2012), which centers on the demolition of an artist-run space in Miami FL, recorded and produced as a 12” record edition and shown together with reconfigured sculpture-artifacts taken from the building prior to its destruction.

The exhibition presents the projects not in their entireties, but stages core elements of each alongside one another, thus providing a trans-contextual overview of Smith’s use of sound in relationship to his sculptural aesthetic.  The title Displacements refers to the artistic process of disturbing, translating, or abstracting source materials to resonate on symbolic and metaphorical levels, creating in viewers an altered awareness of the underlying conditions that define place. It also alludes to the processes of urban change and redevelopment, where the physical transformation of the built environment entails a shifting or transposition of urban identities. With Smith, sound and sculpture intermix to produce a kind of hybrid atmospheric space for contemplating the complex status of transitional sites characterized by impermanence and slippage.

Erik Smith (b. Boston US, lives and works in Berlin) studied visual art and comparative literature in the US and Italy before moving to Berlin, Germany in 2003. Solo exhibitions include Counterpath, Denver; FRAGMENTA/Valletta 2018, Malta; Locus Solus, de Appel Contemporary Arts Centre, Amsterdam NL; Skulpturenpark Berlin_Zentrum, Berlin; DimensionsVariable, Miami FL; Kapinos Galerie, Berlin; Rena Bransten Gallery, San Francisco, CA. His work has also been shown in numerous group exhibitions internationally including SculptureCenter, LIC, NY; BBB centre d’art, Toulouse, FR; Arsenic, Lausanne CH; Pierogi, Leipzig; Kunstpunkt, Berlin. www.eriksmith.de

This exhibition is the first in a series of exhibitions presented under the heading Visual Approach to Sound, which aims to reflect on sound from the perspective of visual art. For this series, visual artists are invited to present works that are based on the forms and methods of visual art but which are also defined by a central acoustic aspect.

Visual Approach to Sound is conceived and organized by Mario Asef for Errant Sound Berlin.

The lecture and performances will be followed by a discussion.

For celebrating the reopening of Errant Sound in its new space in Rungestraße 20, the performance and sound artists Janine Eisenächer and Steffi Weismann will present their new collaboration READY MAKING #1. Within this artistic research-project, Eisenächer and Weismann invite their guests to collectively reflect upon the relevance of sounds and noises that come into being through sound-based actions (“klangpraktische Handlungen“, Elena Ungeheuer) with objects and materials in performances from the fields of Performance Art, Sound Art, and Experimental Music. Furthermore, they investigate the object-based know-how and auditory knowledge in sound performances: What do we learn and experience from the encounter with everyday objects when playfully exploring their acoustic potential and listening to them? What agency do these things and material sounds entail? How do we perceive time and space while making sounds with objects?
After their first variation of this project, which both artists realised under the title READYMADE GRÜÜSCHSCHSCH ——- at Gallery TART in Zurich in the beginning of this year, they now turn the new space of Errant Sound into a listening space. Visitors are invited to playfully explore and performatively interact with diverse objects based on specific instructions for making actions and listening to them. In their performance during the exhibition opening, Eisenächer and Weismann condense their collected experiences and knowledges with selected materials. In addition to that, a video work will be part of the exhibition that presents excerpts of interviews with Livio Beyeler, Janine Eisenächer, Anja Ibsch, Markus Gössi, Pascale Grau, Irene Maag, Muda Mathis, Barbara Naegelin, Boris Nieslony, Lara Russi, Andrea Saemann and Steffi Weismann, who remember sound-generating actions in performances.
READY MAKING #1 focuses on non-amplified sounds and noises that come into being through object-based sonic practices in the field of Performance Art. In the course of further events in this performance and lecture series, amplified sounds and noises as well as sound performances from the fields of Sound Art and Experimental Music will be discussed.

Our new space: Rungestr. 20 (Berlin-Mitte)

We are happy to annonce that – after leaving Kollwitzstr. in December – we got a new home for our project space !

Close to S-Jannowitzbrücke and U-Heinrich-Heinrich-Str. we will have a nice (and bigger) space in the center of Berlin at river Spree (behind TRESOR / EWERK in Köpenicker Str.). The space is permanently supported by the Senat of Berlin (project space program, initiated by ‘Netzwerk freier Berliner Projekträume und -initiativen‘) and Errant Sound was chosen by an international jury among 14 contestants.

„Les jours je songe, les nuits je rêve“
Der Schlaf ist für den Menschen unverzichtbar und hat im Alltag sowie kulturell für ihn große Bedeutung. In der frühen Kulturgeschichte setzte bereits die intensive Beschäftigung mit Schlafphänomenen ein. Sowohl in der Bildenden Kunst als auch in Musik und Lyrik zeugen zahlreiche künstlerische Arbeiten davon. Unter kulturgeschichtlichem Aspekt wurde der Schlaf zeitweise von der kapitalistischen Gesellschaft abgewertet, da sie ihn als Zeit betrachtete, die für produktive und gewinnbringende Aktionen verloren war. In der Kunst hingegen wurde gerade der Schlaf ebenso wie der Zustand der Muße und des Tagträumens genutzt, um für innere Bilder, Emotionen und Gedankengänge empfänglich zu werden.
Über den Schlaf, der zumeist nachts stattfindet, steht der Mensch in Kontakt zu den planetarischen Abläufen von Tag und Nacht, die aus der Konstellation von Sonne und Erde resultieren. Schlaf als ein Stück Natur ist inzwischen Gegenstand der wissenschaftlichen Forschung geworden. In
Schlaflaboren und Apps werden auf neurowissenschaftlicher Basis Körperfunktionen und die Dauer von Schlafphasen gemessen und ausgewertet.


Die Klanginstallation „Les Jours je songe, les nuits je rêve“ von Jutta Ravenna hingegen konzipiert Schlaf als künstlerische Aktion. Sie nimmt dem Schlaf gegenüber eine eigene Position ein, versteht ihn als Reaktion auf das gesellschaftsbedingte Vermeiden von Muße, Tagträumen und Traum und will diesem die verdiente Aufmerksamkeit einräumen.
