The Doors of Perceptions

Listen: The ohrenhoch_Rumori-Kids and Knut Remond (Cosmè) present turbulent & lively changes of perspectives of place, space, time and the universe.

"If the doors of perception were cleansed
everything would appear to man as it is, infinite."
William Blake

The year 2018 is the ten-year jubilee of the ohrenhoch-Kids.

The ohrenhoch-Rumori_Kids
are a mixed group of children between 5 and 14 years dealing and experimenting with hearing, listening, and consequent phenomena.
In the weekly Audio School, the ohrenhoch-Kids learn, research and experiment.
Starting from their own ideas they realise their projects with noises and sounds, on fixed media and with sound installations. The pedagogical basis is to meet the children at equal eye level and as fully-fledged members of the society.

Knut Remond
Composer, performer, multimedia artist. Founder, artistic director and curator of the soundgallery 'ohrenhoch, der Geräuschladen' in Berlin-Neukölln. Founder, director and mentor of the 'ohrenhoch-Kids' – school or research center for electroacoustic music and sound installation for children from 5 to 14 years.

Sponsors and supporters:
Kulturnetzwerk Neukölln, Thomann Musikhaus, duophonic.

'Am I Here' by Cathy Lane

To hear on Sunday 3, 10 and 17 June 2018, 2pm - 9pm:

Am I Here?

by Cathy Lane

Curator, loudspeaker installation: Knut Remond

Cathy Lane on 'Am I Here?':

We hear sound from all around us and are always at the centre of what we hear, however within field recording the dominant way of portraying that listening is as if the world is outside and separated from the field recordist. This arguably romantic hearing of the world separates out and ignores people, and in particular the recordist – as if they are not part of this sounding world that we hear and study through recording.

‘Am I Here?’ questions this absence and the nature of a recording and the various degrees of embodied or disembodied presence in a recorded artefact. It challenges the commonly held belief that field recordings are an ‘objective document’ and reasserts the inability of the recordist to escape their own physical and subjective presence as well as their effect on the world that they record.

Cathy Lane’s  sound work ‘Am I Here?’ is a playful exploration of how the concept of ‘Be Here Now’ translates to recorded sound. The work takes the listener on a journey through time and space – from sounds of the stone carvers of Mamallapuram, the Bangalore laundry ghats and the temple of Madurai in South India through the glacial lagoons of Iceland to birdsong in a domestic garden in inner London stopping off in Chile, Italy, Norway and Scotland along the way. These field recordings have been made at different times over the last decade and often feature the composer’s voice commentating on what she can see or hear.

Thanks to Maya Lane, Chloé Locatelli and Salomé Voegelin for translating my words and lending their voices to mine.

Cathy Lane is a composer, sound artist and academic. Her work uses spoken word, field recordings and archive material to explore aspects of our listening relationship with each other and the multiverse. She is currently focused on how sound relates to the past, our histories, environment and our collective and individual memories from a feminist perspective.
Cathy is Professor of Sound Arts at University of the Arts London and co-director of CRiSAP (Creative Research in Sound Arts Practice), University of the Arts London.

Nowhere Close

(17:00, 2008)
by Gaël Segalen

Curator, loudspeaker installation: Knut Remond

Gaël Segalen on 'Nowhere Close':

Years after the end of the Croatian war of Independence (1991-1995), in Belgrade and in Vukovar (Croatia), which has become a martyr city, a symbol of resistance and coexistence, this piece was recorded along the Danube and in the cities with young Serbs. It's about post-war dialogue, exile of the young generation, memory, "dark tourism" or "memory tourism", associated to death, suffering, catastrophy and migrations …
but also reconciliation and crossed looks between two enemies populations living under the same roof.

How is the territory organised in this city, symbol of multiculturalism before the war? Is it still today precisely divided?
Recorded in 2008 before the official efforts of reconciliation, we were witnessing that “Vukovar is a spatially mixed but socially polarized environment. Croats and Serbs live nose to nose in the same apartments building, but in two different Vukovars. Here ethnicity is marked out and policed by the flying of flags, the holding of commemorations, the marking of ethno-nationalist expressions in the urban landscape (such as graffitis), and the presence of symbolic buildings” (Baillie B., 2011, Staking Claim : Monuments and the Making (and Breaking?) of a Border Matrix in Vukovar, Urban Conflict Conference. p. 90)

the boat goes up the river from Serbia to Croatia ...
... From Belgrade to Vukovar we listen to the history of identity fantasies of the inhabitants (all geographical concern of territorial belonging), crossed perceptions, alterity, while I refocus / recenter my serie of portraits on the problematics of the migratory movements :  shall one stay / leave / come back / coexist.

It is also the unique recording of a young Serbian artist - resident on board - in the moment he discovers Vukovar for the first time.
A humanist awareness, an identification process, on a difficult page of history.
Delicate voice for floating words, stirred by the martial rhythm and tumultuous waters.

Produced as part of the European Sound Delta residency (July - September 2008), MU Collective and European Cultural program.

with the voices of:
Igor Stangliczky, Vladimir Radinović, Diane, "formerly" american, or Diana as her adoptive Serbian name,
Vukovar priest (recorded by Ludger Hennig), Serbo-Croatian singing group "Kudkrajina" from Belgrade,
Silvena Garelova in Ruse - Bulgaria for the "Luna" song
The boys from Vukovar diving into the Danube.

Sounds of the city of Belgrade (Serbia), NoviSad (Serbia), Vukovar (Croatia), Bratislava (Slovakia),
from diverse locations in Romania and Bulgaria,
and from the boat navigating on the Danube.
additional sound : Ian-John Hutchinson "Tokyo Revolver"

Gaël Segalen
Paris, France
From social sciences to radio, sound recording for the cinema, field recording, pedagogy, art / sound interaction as a free form of anthropology and geology, electronic composition,
for 20 years, Gaël Segalen focuses on the direct relationship to the people and the world through sound, and calls her project IhearU.
She runs workshops, composes for commissioned projects and visual works and publishes solo and duet albums (Erratum, Frm-at, Firecracker Recordings labels).
She is also co-founder of Polyphones, a french network dedicated to women in musical experimentation.

Absorb

Carried on Your Winds
Flowing on Your Tongues


Participatory audio-based installation *
(2016, European Premiere)
by Tina Pearson (Canada)

Curator, loudspeaker installation: Knut Remond

Tina Pearson on 'Absorb':

Absorb is an audio-based installation that attempts to reconcile an essence of human presence in the seemingly disconnected realms of technology and the biosphere. It is a response to the hard-to-grasp realities of rapid global wildlife and habitat loss that parallel a simultaneous explosion of human populations and especially their technologies, which seem, at first glance, to be propelling human being-ness further and further from communion with its evolutionary origins in water, bacteria, sponge, and fish, and toward something “unworldy” and cyborg-ian. Sometimes the simplest response is to step outside to listen, to breathe and to let loose a primal voiced echoe.

The scores of Absorb pose a set of instructions that assume and invite cellular and ancestral memory responses, or codes, from participants. Recognizing that all technologies are formed from earthly materials, the composition of Absorb asks how those coded responses might be seeded within, pollinate, or infect the networked and digital media that the composition carries into a venue.

What fragments of the blood, breath, waters and essences of those from which we came, can we perceive in the winds, waters, in rocks, earth and flora around us? What of these fragmented essences, are present in how our cells function, how we breathe, walk, move, speak and think? And what of these ancestral essences, these codes, do we project into, or can we detect in, our technologies?

The responses, extracted from their origins, fragmented, mixed and processed digitally, populate the installation space, juxtaposing the ancient organic realm of telepathy with the futuristic wired realm of telematics. Disconnected echoing digital seed-codes of listening, breathing, intending, voicing.

The audio of the first “parent” recordings of Carried on Your Winds and Flowing on Your Tongues was made from the sounds of artists from Canada, the United States and Europe, who were invited to respond to the scores remotely by digitally recording their breath and voice sounds, respectively. Their audio files, sent through the internet, were edited and processed into two long form sonic pieces. In each location where the project is installed, more contributions are gathered, rendered and mixed into the whole.

* For the installation at ohrenhoch, visitors are invited to consider their own realization of the scores. Those visiting April 8 and 15 have the option of individually recording their breath and voice with the help of ohrenhoch. Their recordings will be rendered by Tina Pearson and included in the final two installation dates April 22 and 29.

A quote related to Absorb and Soundactivism:

“I experience both enthralment and trepidation as a daily witness to the fundamental and continuos change in my physical being, my perceptions, and my understanding of reality as a direct result of my active and passive participation in digital and networked technologies. I’m a hybrid being. In my imagination, I recall the sensation of my bare toes grasping at the mossy root of a tall red cedar, releasing a rich dusky smell, while my fingers quickly type commands for a live online audiovisual telematic performance. My eyes peer through the filter of two glass prisms, each one precisely measured to enhance my vision, as I focus on the computer screen that shows the movements and texts of my oversees colleagues’ virtual avatars. My ears, swimming in the blur of our combined electronic sounds swirling through the electronic speakers on my bookshelf, perk up suddenly to focus far up outside my real life window toward the cacophony of the local murder of crows returning from the seashore to their night time roost inland. And now, my mind and eyes can be here, typing, while another aspect of my presence can be there, remembering. I, as an essence, can be present in multiple “theres” at once in time and space.”

Tina Pearson is a composer, performer and facilitator in new music, sound art, and networked performance. Since 1979, Pearson has worked in projects that investigate notions of culture, perception, identity and place, and the relationships between creator, environment, performer and witness-participant. Her work often involves spectral-temporal forms and sonic mimicry, and usually incorporates biospheric themes and stretched modes of attention, sometimes in process oriented contexts with community participants. Since 2007, she has explored telematic performance in audio and 3-D networked platforms, and since 2014 she has engaged in an ongoing project called Biospheric Art Practice, which questions artistic contexts in relation to the non-human environment. As a performer (flute, voice, tuned glass, accordion, virtual instruments), Pearson’s sound worlds reveal shifting nuances of texture, dynamic and tuning.
Recent presentations include Root, Blood, Fractal, Breath commissioned by Contact Contemporary Music (Allan Gardens, Toronto, Canada, 2017); Weighting (works for dance and video commissioned by choreographer Lori Hamar, Victoria, Canada, 2017); Hunt (3) Chanterelles (Brown University, Providence, RI, 2017); Absorb (audio visual installation, commissioned by MediaNet, Victoria, Canada, 2016); Songs For Glass Island, with Camille Norment and Experimental Music Unit (Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, 2016); PwRHm (w/helicopter) (networked media work, Firenze Media Arts Festival, Florence, Italy; 2016, Net New Music Festival Birmingham, UK, 2015; Experimental Media and Performance Centre, Troy, New York, 2014), Music For Natural History (performative installation, w/ Paul Walde, Royal BC Museum, Victoria, 2016), This Is For You (sound installation, ohrenhoch, Berlin, 2016 & 2015), among others.
Pearson was editor of the Canadian periodical Musicworks initiating its audio component in 1983. She designed and taught a sound studies course at OCAD University’s Experimental Department in Toronto for a number of years, and often presents workshops, guest lectures and talks on listening, biospheric art practice, telematic collaboration, and Deep Listening®. She was director of the Toronto New Music Co-operative (Toronto), is co-director of the new music organization LaSaM (Victoria, BC) and a member of the global networked collaboration Avatar Orchestra Metaverse.
