Dear friends of SoundS,
We are excited to present UNTHINKING / UNLEARNING — an online lab/residency on new sonic theories and praxis from May 15 - June 1, 2021. UNTHINKING / UNLEARNING is a collaboration between the label Klammklang, the Sound Art and Sound Studies (M.A.) at HSE University of Art and Design, Moskau and Sound Studies and Sonic Arts at Udk Berlin, and is part of the Deutschlandjahr in Russland / Год Германии в России.
The project is set to develop new forms of sonic thinking and imagination through a series of online lectures and workshops focused on the potency of reinvention in current auditory, sonic and musical practices. The laboratory consists of two sections:
Theory: a course of twelve lectures available for anyone to enroll, focused on three major topics: sound as a social agent, new concepts of the sonic (Unthinking) and current sonic practice (Unlearning).
Practice: two groups of Russian-speaking participants (7-8 people each) selected via the open call. Depending on their own preferences, participants are given the opportunity to join the workshop they’re interested in, selecting from field recordings methods and advanced computer music techniques.
