“Sonic Fiction” by Friedemann Dupelius (DE)

30.05. – 03.06. 10:00-16:00, at LiepU

What does sound know? Which narrations do we find in our sonic surroundings? How can we communicate and narrate knowledge, ideas, speculations and fantasies by sonic means? And which role does language play?

In this workshops we will try out and try to find different formats to synthesize sound, thought and/or fiction – such as Audio Papers, Sonic Fiction, Experimental Hörspiele or epistemic DJ Sets.

Prior knowledge is not necessary, but any skills in sound recording, editing or playing electronic music instruments can be useful. At the end of the workshop participants will be producing their own work to be presented as a performance or an exhibition artwork.

Friedemann Dupelius works with sound and language. He moves between artistic, journalistic and documentary approaches, which influence each other and often find their way into one in one work at the same time. As Friday Dunard he produces genrefluid electronic music, which he releases releases, performs live, or mixes into DJ sets. Under the alias Wednesday Dupont he creates radio plays, sonic research, digital and acoustic texts for radio, festivals and internet. Friedemann is part of the Cologne experimental choir Γλώσσα and various collaborative music projects. He writes radio features and texts about electronic, experimental and contemporary music and other phenomena of the acoustic present. As a curator he is active in Cologne at the music label SPA and the sound art series Brückenmusik. At Peter Behrens School of Arts in Düsseldorf, he teaches design students in sonic phenomena.

“Liepaja Sound Places” by Maksims Šenteļevs (LV)

30.05. – 03.06. 10:00-16:00, at LiepU

The workshop offers a gentle intervention in the urban environment, placing artists in direct contact with the objects in space, the aural characteristics of the space and the sound created by the objects. The activity of the artists in the context of the space is combined with the practice of sound recording, using the space as an instrument and the objects found in it as sound tools. The focus of the activity is the space where the artist, as an actor and researcher, searches for the sonic quality of the surrounding environment and finds his place in the space with the help of sound.

In the workshop you will learn: sound improvisation techniques on site (insitu), without pre-prepared instruments. You will explore the sonic qualities of a space. Ambient sound recording technique.

Spaces that we will visit are unprepared, this means that you have to be careful. Preferred equipment: work gloves, comfortable work clothes in which it is easy to move, it is preferable that the clothes are quiet – jacket, pants do not rustle, boots have durable soles that do not rattle. Comfortable hat. Dust mask. Headlamp. Warm tea or coffee and a snack – if you like. You can take a small mat to sit on. You can take a compact recorder, headphones, microphones with you if you have it. You can take violin bows or drum sticks with you, but only if you are ok playing on rusty and dusty parts of the buildings.
