die Reihe: Gilles Aubry | performance and talk
As the first event this winter semester 2018/19 and on the occasion of the INFO DAY of the Master's program Sound Studies and Sonic Arts, die Reihe. Contributions to auditory art and culture presents the Swiss sound artist, musician and researcher Gilles Aubry with his piece "And who sees the mystery", originaly published on the Berlin label Corvo Records in 2017. The performance is based on sound check situations and rehearsals of Berber-Amazigh music recorded by Gilles Aubry in Morocco. Using his microphone as a sound processing device Aubry transforms further his field recordings through performative feedback techniques. The result is an abstract sonic exploration of traditional instruments, rhythms and spaces. It also features a poetic text in Amazigh language by Farid Zalhoud, “Tribute to the Ear”, commissioned especially for the project.
Aubry's practice is based on a performative approach to field recording, documents and historical sources, often in collaboration with other disciplines. He critically addresses listening, sound practices, music, technology and environmental voices, examining their relations to power structures and ideologies in various contexts.
Entrance to both events is free.
