An Approach to Situational Time-Based Arts
In some parts of the vast music world, a rejection of traditional forms, which began in the 1960s, is continuing today, sped along in part by the explosive advance of technologies. This trend expanded artists’ tool palettes by sophisticated software, advanced sensors, the Internet, and new physical materials. It is also affecting multimedia installation art, creating new situations to be explored. In this four-day workshop, participants will have the opportunity to look into and explore a carefully selected choice of seminal works.
Berlin Techno Software/Hardware Explorations
How do aesthetics and technology relate to and influence each other in contemporary music production? We will analyze those aspects based on hardware and software from Berlin, the capital of techno. During the process, you will get the chance to visit world-leading companies as well as small manufacturers which develop tools for special musical phenomena.
Public Intervention with Sound
This public intervention workshop offers an opportunity for artistic practices in sound. We will intervene in public spaces with a focus on the characteristics of the underground station “Nollendorfplatz” where we will exhibit the works at the end of the workshop.
Intensive Opera Audition Training
