Tiago Cutileiro concluded recently his PhD in Music and Musicology on the concept of Opera and Non-Narrative Music. Using different means like sung voice, spoken voice, and video projected text, his research tries to find points of connection between a music that thoroughly avoids a paradigm of quasi-linguistic articulation, on one side, and the paradoxical use of text within that same music, on the other. His work includes instrumental music (chamber and orchestral; with or without electronics), electronic music, sound installations, and music for theatre and film ( http://thegiveups.wordpress.com/ ).
Dear friends and colleagues,
on Sunday June, 29th, 17.00 Korhan Erel and Antje Vowinckel present a sound art program at
1 - Novel in glass. Turkish sound vitrines based on motifs by Orhan Pamuk. By Antje Vowinckel, Produktion HR/SWR 2014, 54 minutes
2 - The Threshold. Film by Fabian Astore (Sound design Korhan Erel), (Joint winner of the Blake Prize 2012), 7 minutes
3 - Improvisation Korhan Erel, computer and controllers, Antje Vowinckel, organ and objects, 15 minutes
Parallel to his novel "The Museum of Innocence" Orhan Pamuk had built a museum of the same title in Istanbul, assembling objects that play a role in the novel. In more than 80 vitrines the objects correspond in a new way and convey the zeitgeist of the western orientated upper class in Istanbul's 70s. Commissioned by HR and SWR, Antje Vowinckel transformed the idea of the museum into acoustic images, using glass
resonances as an acoustic metaphor for the vitrines.
Sitting at the threshold, the presence of childhood innocence renders complex boundaries to a moment of spiritual elevation. A video recorded serendipitously in Istanbul, Turkey in January 2012.
The Stranger that is next to me
A collection of audio works from practitioners around the world concerned with and focused on The Stranger ....
that is over there, that is right in front, that is moving away, that is fast approaching, at the next table, sitting across, staring into space, with nothing to do, that brushes passed, or that bumps into me, outside, on the beach, that interrupts, and that suddenly lends a hand, as the embodiment of city life, that I cannot overlook, whose fortune is to remain on the periphery, who dislikes being a stranger, riding his bike, that stops to look into the window, on her phone, that is no one and everywhere, that I do not know nor ever will, whose eyes never stop moving, that smiles at us or that seems threatening, that loves to sing in public, without a home, and that I wish to meet, that I overhear, and as a question of community.
