Sound Creation in the ‘Art in-the-public’ interest

Invisible-Places_web

Next July 19 I will be presenting some ideas on my research on Sound Art and Public Art as part of the symposium Invisible Places held at the Escola Superior de Educação of Viseu in Portugal. For the complete agenda of the symposium visit the web invisibleplaces.org

An Inclusive Approach to Sound Creation in ‘Art in-the-public’ interest
My paper takes up an approach to sound art creation in the public art sphere. Addressed in line with the perspectives on public art by some of the critical authors and artists in the field as Arlene Raven or Susanne Lacy, the paper reinforces the analysis of the sound art practice in the public sphere related to notions of commitment, ephemerality or temporality which are crucial for the ‘art in-the-public interest’ paradigm and, broadly understood, for the public art today.

Curating Sound Art (15/05 -17/05) Goldsmiths, University of London

Next May 15 I will be presenting the project Augmented Spatiality as part of the symposium Curating Sound Art held in Goldsmiths University of London. For more information and the agenda of the symposium visit the web http://ocradst.org/soundartcurating/

Following you can read the abstract of my paper: 

Augmented Spatiality was a one-week exhibition on public space and sound creation curated by the author in 2013 in Hökarängen, a Southern suburb of Stockholm.

The project was inspired in the concept of ‘spatiality’ coined in 1980 by the geographer and urban planner Edward Soja who devised this term to refer to the attributes of a space that is essentially social. Although having other terms in language related to the spatial, Soja elaborated around the ‘spatiality’ the notion of a space which is produced as a result of the social life, a space whose organization and meaning is subject to multiple transformations and contingencies. A space, thus, where temporality and social relations are in its core.

Augmented Spatiality was conceived as a process in which the artworks, performances and other comprised events were integrated into the social and spatial processes taking place in the public sphere. The decision of working with sound creation was however taken prior to all these conceptions, and it was precisely the study of sound creation in public space which led to the specific project Augmented Spatiality.

Since its diffuse beginnings around the 60’s sound creation in the public realm has been closely linked to the notion of social space. Having the city – and the urban, as scenery, laboratory and source for inspiration, Public Sound Art practices aroused as an outcome of formal discussions by artists and musicians on the role of art in everyday life and, furthermore, as a consequence of acting in response to political and social matters. Half century later, whereas the role of art in public space is substantially different, some of these premises continue to be valid.

Bearing this in mind, the exhibition Augmented Spatiality integrated the discourses of sound art into social and sociological debates on the specific public space of Hökarängen. Eight projects worked out approaches and reflections on specific spaces and issues of the district, while a section with 17 listening pieces worked on the politics of listening, the aural memory and the displacement of sound in urban contexts.

Participating artists: Trond Lossius, Hong-Kai Wang, Mattin, Jacek Smolicki, Cecilia Jonsson, Iván Argote, Playing the Space, Konsthall 323. Listening Section: Acoustic Mirror, Pablo Sanz, Katrinem, O+A, Peter Cusack, Anna Raimondo, Younes Baba-Ali, Simohammed Fettaka, Mohamed Laouli, Mustapha Akrim, Edu Comelles, Juanjo Palacios, Chinowski Garachana, Camilo Cantor, Albert Murillo, Raúl Hinojosa

Listening for the city (April 2-3, Dublin)

Next April 3rd I will be in Dublin participating in Beyond Noise and Silence: Listening for the Citya public symposium exploring the intersection of sound art, public space, and urban design. This symposium complements the project MAP: Manual for Acoustic Planning and Urban Sound Design, a public art commission by Sven Anderson for Dublin City Council. More info in map.minorarchitecture.org

This symposium proposes a series of conversations that form a bridge between individual sound art practices that verge on the urban scale and a series of questions that address the possibility and relevance of a discipline which might lie somewhere between public sound art, urban sound design, and urban acoustic planning. Although these conversations are initiated from within a contemporary art context, these events also address this field from the perspective of the city, entering through the portal of existing noise mitigation strategies and reassessing how we might imagine listening for the city to discover new opportunities for design and intervention.

RNE “La Casa del Sonido”. Augmented Spatiality. Espacio público y creación sonora

El pasado 30 de Octubre realicé un programa en “La Casa del Sonido” de RNE, Radio Clásica, dedicado a la creación sonora en el espacio público. “La Casa del Sonido” es un programa dirigido y presentado por José Luis Carles, con quien tuve el gusto de compartir micrófono y a quien agradezco su invitación.

El programa lo dedicamos casi íntegramente a hablar del proyecto “Augmented Spatiality” que comisarié en Estocolmo y que tuvo lugar los pasados meses de agosto y septiembre de 2013. En el programa escuchamos y comentamos fragmentos de algunos de los eventos que allí tuvieron lugar, como “Oath of Love” de la artista taiwanesa Hong-Kai Wang, escuchamos también algunos de los sonidos preparatorios de la instalación sonora “The Derivative. Touching the curve, sensing the space” que el artista noruego Trond Lossius preparó para el andén de metro del barrio de Hökarängen (en el que se enmarcó Augmented Spatiality). Y finalmente dedicamos una parte importante del programa a escuchar algunas de las piezas que formaron parte de la sección de escucha del proyecto.

Aquí podeís escuchar el programa íntegro y acceder al resto de contenidos de “La Casa del Sonido” en el podcast de RNE: http://www.rtve.es/alacarta/audios/la-casa-del-sonido

Augmented Spatiality (Hökarängen, Stockholm)

Augmented spatiality is a public art project for the suburb of Hökarängen in Stockholm in which the artworks, performances and other comprised events are integrated into the social and spatial processes taking place in the public sphere.

In 1980, the geographer and urban planner Edward Soja coined the term Spatiality to refer to the quality of the space that is inherently social. Having other terms in language related to the spatial, Soja invented this one to denote the space that was produced as a result of the social life. He reflected that way on the production and organization of the social space following the previous work on the topic by Henri Lefebvre.

On this basis Augmented Spatiality is conceived as a public sound art project for the suburb of Hökarängen in Stockholm in which the artworks, performances and other comprised events are taking part of the social and spatial processes of this neighborhood. Addressing on the formation of social space in the city, the project aimed to reflect on the ways in which public art and sound creation operate in the networks of a specific place.

Augmented Spatiality has grown as a collaborative framework of artists, citizens, institutions and public structures in order that the project itself and its development might highlight the ongoing cultural, educational, economical and political events in this suburb of Stockholm. Different topics covering critical walks, gentrification processes, the idea of the local and variations in time of the soundscape and the landscape make the project a ground of experimentation whose results are experienced mainly through the listening sensitivity in Hökarängen, a suburb whose history and present time have additionally shaped the whole process.
