Intermedia sound art/sound poetry workshop
Language: german/ english
In a culture that is dominated by image and language, concentrating on sound gives us a new understanding of ourself, our emotions and our environment. The sound of the voice is connected to our emotions and subconcious interactions. The voice is a central means to connect with people.
Nowadays we also understand that the sound of environment is important for our quality of living. Concepts of acoustic ecology have been developed that go far beyond the simplistic idea that noise is bad and silence is good. It is possible to discover the beauty in everyday sounds.
The workshops try to raise consciousness to the diversity of possibilities in the voice as well as in environment sounds. They can be realized in schools, universities, museums, libraries or other institutions for participants of all ages and all backgrounds and qualifications.
The workshops are integrative & inclusive & work well with international, multicultural, multilingual participants. Basic languages of workshop are German and English.
The workshops can be combined with a lecture performance on sound poetry in German or English.
