(2010, German Premiere)
by Gaël Segalen
Authors: Gaël Segalen + 8 women
Loudspeaker installations: Knut Remond / ohrenhoch
Gaël Segalen on 'Thinking of you (fragments)':
Creative workshop and audio correspondence with 8 parisian women from North Africa: recordings and meetings from february to may 2010 in the 17th arrondissement (Paris).
Every week, the participants were taking back home a recorder to collect and invent any sound by themselves, in their own privacy (“interiors”) and in the everyday life, alone and with the environment, refining their approach with time.
Receiving those materials on an anonymous mode, here is the audio piece i offered back to them.
(Premiered as Piece for headphones and audiovisual installation at the Bouffes du Nord theater, Paris, june 2010, by Collectif Mu - Gaël Segalen - Vincent Voillat - Platform Siwa)
A Text by Gaël Segalen to 'Thinking of you (fragments)' in relation to 'Soundactivism' is available at ohrenhoch.
20 years in sound, from social sciences, to radio, to on location sound for film, to field recording, to education, to travel the world to collect voices, to audio art / interaction, to composing music, french sound activist, educator and musician Gaël Segalen (aka IhearU) has a very diverse experience in sound and is focused on polylistening, dissonance and new music, as well as create people's encounter in improvisation spaces. She believes all the noises she has collected or manipulated, can coexist in one inclusive spirit, here and now, and transposes the complexity of the world into soundscapes and DFR compositions (Danceable Field Recording).
About to release her debut album on Erratum (spring 2016), she has a diploma in concrete and electroacoustic composition in the lineage of the GRM (Groupe de Recherches Musicales), has worked with parisian Collectif Mu since 2005 on sound art projects, co-signs the piece and performance “Vertigo” with Joachim Montessuis, collaborates with Afrikan Sciences on their duo “Les Graciés” since 2012 (debut album on Firecracker for mid 2016), conducts sound workshops for specific publics, composes music for films and installations.

Untitled piece (2016, Premiere)
by Patrik Lechner
Loudspeaker installation: Knut Remond / ohrenhoch
Patrik Lechner on his piece:
The piece is a composition of three elements; the main part is formed by a synthesized ambient sound. Here a kind of parametric/synthetic abstract thunderstorm was created, it provides the frame around the two other parts.
The second part came from the attempt to create percussive, rhythmic structures by particle systems. As the result was satisfying intellectually but not aesthetically, it was subsequently processed as vigorously until it met my artistic requirements.
The third part however is a purely aesthetically motivated percussive work.
So this piece forms quasi an engagement with the interplay inherent in art between the intellect and the pure pleasure.All sounds are purely synthetic, i.e. no field recordings, samples or similar were used.
Patrik Lechner started making electronic music at the age of 16, soon discovering environments such as Pure data and Max/MSP. From thereon he developed many tools for his own experimental music and it wasn't long after this, that he started creating generative 3d visualizations of audio material.
Since 2012 he is working for the University of Applied Sciences in St.Pölten (FH St.Pölten). In 2015 he wrote a book about Max/MSP and TouchDesigner.
Patrik Lechner has done many multimedia projects as for example an installation at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden for the Institute for Creative/Media/Technologies FH St.Pölten, or an interactive audio installation in Dubai. As an artist, he did audio/visual performances in Austria, Italy, Germany, Canada, Dubai at MUTEK Mexico and regularly played at the Austrian Pavilion at the world exhibition in Shanghai 2010. He works a lot with classically trained musicians, developed a real-time scoring system/piece for string quartet premiered in 2012 and frequently works with painters and artists from other fields.

by Yan Jun
Loudspeaker installation: Knut Remond / ohrenhoch
Yan Jun on 'practice':
this piece is initiate from an interest rather than an idea. an interest of editing. or, to be more precisely, an interest of cutting the sound. a way of showing and listening to the hand of artist, the manipulator of reality.
the material itself is not pure acoustic object (acousmatic). it's easy to recognize: steps on wooden floor, camera shutters, and maybe breaths. for people know my work they can find hint of its source from my website. yes it's about theory of image, documenting, violence of aesthetics, minimal listening, body movements, and so on. but still, they are sounds, as medium, of illusion, of real, or, of themselves.
recently i'm working a lot on recording of rehearsal, practice, sound check, interval, moments before and after events, of people on working, and of audiences.
this piece is specifically made for ohrenhoch's Sunday presentation.
