Sound performance: September 29th 2023, 7:00pm

The series „Wavering Worlds“ provides a platform for local and international artists and musicians who oscillate between musical and artistic genres. Within this framework various forms of multimedia concerts and performances are presented.

Andreas Kurz works on the conception and realisation of compositions, exhibitions, installations and sound performances at the intersection of visual arts and music. For his live sets he uses modular synthesizers, effects processors and field recordings. With minimal means, he creates dense drones, abstract sound collages and improvised rhythmic patterns.

Roberta Lazo Valenzuela is a Chilean composer, singer and visual artist based in Austria. Her practice encompasses a variety of media including music, sound art, installation and video. Her works often portray and highlight the intricacies of daily life, drawing attention to things hidden in the repetitive and trivial activities of the ordinary.

In the work elliptisch ziehendes Ambiente the boundary between fine art and decoration is subtle, searching for depth, delving into the sweet mud of kitsch. Behind the underlying thematic horizons of figurative narration and fetish; selection and hoarding; simulation and imitation; projection and symbol; the ear gets pleased by the sound of shells and the gaze may sink into puddles of ducks.

Sound performance: 19h | Workshop: 13-16h

Sarmen Almond (MX)

Musician, voice performer, inter-media artist and teacher. Sarmen uses the voice and its relationship with electronic media to create compositions and decomposition of the personality on stage. She’s constantly in a quest of the vocal possibilities that the human body utters as instrument as well as the reflection of these sounds in physical and imaginary spaces. Almond makes use of resources of free improvisation, extended vocal techniques, programming and body work.

Burkhard Stangl is a guitarist and composer, working in the fields of improvisation, electronic and contemporary classical music. He is a prolific performer, having collaborated with multiple musicians, groups, artists and composers.

The series „Weavering Worlds“ provides a platform for local and international sound performers who oscillate between various musical and artistic genres. Within this framework, disparate forms of multi-media concerts and performances are presented.

Workshop: OUR VOICES – OUR SOURCES with Sarmen Almond

This workshop deepens into vocal self-knowledge, for free voice management. It is an approach to the personal vocal sound and identity, towards multiple ways of utter and color vocal sounds… a freedom without conditions, guided by knowledge of the instrument itself.

Participants will work on attentive listening and development of the auditory capacity to place notes, sounds, motives, within a sound environment. Find more info on the project Alquimia Vocal.
