Workshop Christina Kubisch: Invisible Inaudible

(The Hidden City)

Tutor: Christina Kubisch

Workshop for participants of the Darmstadt Summer Course 2018

Maximum capacity: tba

The conditions for participation will be announced soon.


The workshop is based on the research of sounds which we normally cannot hear: electromagnetic waves, underwater sounds, solar frequencies, radio waves and others. The workshop aims 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. The result of the acoustic research can be a site specific installation, composition, sound sculpture, performance or other.

A basic knowledge about how to use recording facilities is required. Students can work alone, but collective work is very welcome. Special recording facilities for exploring hidden sounds will be provided, but participants are requested to bring their own equipment including cameras and video recorders.
