klingt gut! Symposium on Sonic Art and Spatial Audio

klingt gut is an interdisciplinary event at the intersection of art and technology. KLG 2020/21 will have a special focus on sonic art, sound design, electro-acoustic music, spatial audio and extended/ digital realities.

Coming from practices of sculpture, music and dance respectively, our former fellows Kerstin Ergenzinger, Bnaya Halperin-Kaddari and Kiran Kumār embody the Sono-Choreographic Collective for transdisciplinary art and research. Working through their multi-disciplinary studio practices and also through interdisciplinary dialogues with other artistic and scientific interlocutors, the collective actively seeks out interpersonal thought, collaboration and play in order to explore notions of subtlety, embodiment and consciousness through the sonic arts.

Playground #n is a musical performance-set played with custom-made electromagnetic, opto-electronic and acoustic spin tops that sonify gravity. It unfolds as a game where variously tuned tops hold a spin continuously. The sound is spatialised and live-footage closely observes the tactile, kinetic behaviour of the instruments as their motion is projected on the playing-ground beside the performers. This polyphony makes for an entangled sonic event that plays with gravity through centrifugal forces and activates our human proprioception via its interconnected sensibility for sound, pressure and balance.
