For its third edition, Recent Investigations and Becoming of Sound Art 03, will focus on the recent history, the existing currents and the potential of sound art.
What are the strategies, protocols and technologies put in place by artists who work with sound? What are the poetic dimensions and the imaginary worlds channeled by these practices? What are the emerging listening modes and postures? How do they resonate in the contexts of environmental, societal and political emergencies? Can sound and listening become vectors of resistance and transition towards an ecology of attention? Could a critical reflection on sound and its technologies allow for more “humane” dialogues and possible trajectories in a world whose agents are more than human?
Guest artists and participants will come together in this workshop to discuss these questions, exchange and develop common research. Sessions will take place exclusively on site and in person, in a small group to offer a safe and open environment. Participants are invited to actively engage in these meetings which will emphasise collaborative exchange and knowledge sharing.
These sessions come with bibliographies and links prepared by the guests, as well as a selection of audio pieces and performances in a listening room.
Emphasis will be placed on the following themes, according to the interests and profiles of the participants:
- Main actors (individuals and technologies) of sound art
- Singularity in approaches of different countries in time, academic research, women’s contribution, underground inventions, effects of presence, as well as intuitive, animist and spiritual practices
- Intersectoral and interdisciplinary aspects of sound art practices
- Sound space and the effects of sound art on publics
- Relationships between sound art, environment and ecology through the physicality of sound
- Acoustic applications and transductions between physiology and electronics in sound art
Four sessions invite guests who are specialized in various perspectives and approaches.
The maximum number of participants is 8. The training will be given in French.
