27 - 29 JAN | Sounds That Can No Longer Be | MOANA HOLENSTEIN, MALU SERAFIM, VICTOR BURTON
If you could choose a sonic memory to heal, forget or replace in your mind, which memory would that be?
With the help of futuristic artificial intelligence, an imaginary machine uses non invasive technology to directly interface with the human brain, gaining access to the sounds of their past. In turn, sonic memories of the past, present and future can be synthesized by the machine to be [re]experience by the user
In the realm of the memories, fiction and reality are intertwined into a single experience. Here, two correlated sound layers blend the seemingly real and the imaginary.
The growing sonic archive of memories is a network of personal relationships. Visitors are invited on site to share a memory of their own, contributing by feeding new input to the expanding archive.
About the Artists:
Hello. I am a new media artist and sound person from Zurich, but I have had the pleasure to call many places “home”. As an inherent audiophile, I am currently concerned with exploring diverse sonic perspectives of human and non-human listeners. My practice includes work with field recordings, found footage, and primarily subtractive synthesis which I use to build collages in the form of generative and interactive systems, as well as multichannel/binaural audio experiences. Working as a scientific research assistant for the Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunication has sparked my interest in the future development of immersive audio technology and the effects of human-induced noise pollution. In my artistic practice, I benefit from experience with empirical research and vice versa. Other recent works focus on the intersection and interaction between humans, nature, and technology. I hope to contribute ideas and solutions that will benefit all three.

Electro-instrumental composer, sound engineer and rhythmicist from Montréal. Victor composes music with specific considerateness for oblique rhythmic structures, unconventional notation techniques, indeterminacy and site-specificity. He curated and documented the concert series experior, an event in which Montréal-based musicians of seemingly contrasting milieux presented their new creations and recent explorations. During the summer of 2020, he organised 15 outdoor sessions of rhythmic investigations derived from concepts developed by German drummer Jaki Liebezeit. At times, he coacts in dance projects and contributes sonically to video work.
