Flying Monks for Rika Lin Version 2

Following last April’s performance of Quantum Monk II at Link’s Hall, choreographer, Rika Lin and I have been working a new variation for live performance.

While work-shopping the piece we came up with the idea by using sound design and music as an integral part of the choreography.

About the exhibition:

This edition of radioCona:0.2425 aims at reflecting and shifting precisely this ‘unperceived’ remainder, making a leap to move from the unit of time to the notion of space, toward perceiving space, toward perceiving, capturing, and composing sounds and soundscapes, and ultimately toward creating autonomous narratives.

The radioCona:0.2425 soundart exhibition was curated by Francisco Lopez, Elena Biserna, Brane Zorman, Irena Pivka, and Jasmina Založnik. Find details about my curatorial selections here.

I curated a selection of works by five artists for the radioCona 0.2425 FM soundart exhibition broadcast and streaming February 28 – March 3, 2016 after nautical twilight 6:16 PM on 88.8MHz FM and live streaming on www.radiocona.si Ljubljana.

This edition of the annual exhibition is dedicated to the Earth’s orbit around the Sun, focusing on the dimension of nighttime radio transmission and the idea of heightened perception that can happen only by withdrawing from daytime rhythms.

In addition, my own “SoundTent At Camp Sherwin” was selected by one of the other curators.

The event will include soundwalks with making and listening as the main activities, somehow involving field recording, culminating with a phonography performance and discussion. It will engage awareness multiple levels, concerning the social, aesthetic, and environmental aspects of sound.
