With Participants of the Darmstadt Summer Course
Nothing looks the way it sounds. And nothing sounds the way it looks. Since the end of the 1970s composer, flutist and sound artist Christina Kubisch has been exploring hidden sounds of the public space, and revealing them, for example in her work series Electrical Walks. Her workshop at this year’s Darmstadt Summer Course is based on this experience and is dealing with sounds which we normally cannot hear: electromagnetic waves, underwater sounds, solar frequencies, radio waves and others. Participants are invited to explore and record soundscapes and signals in and around Darmstadt and to transform and transcribe them into a work which will be presented at the end at Kunsthalle Darmstadt. We are curious to see whether this acoustic research will result in installations, compositions, sound sculptures, performances or other.
