SALOMÉ VOEGELIN – DELHI SOUNDWORDS – A TALK ABOUT WRITING PHONOGRAPHY | 21 NOV 5-7 PM @ KHOJ, Khirki ext, New Delhi
SALOMÉ VOEGELIN would like to invite you to take part in a project of writing the soundscape of Delhi (Delhi SoundWords). Delhi Soundwords forms a guest edition of her regular blog soundwords.tumblr.com, to be published before during and after Sound Reason 2013. Her blog writes the soundscape, sonic events and occurrences in the everyday acoustic environment, without simply referencing its source but trying to deal with its passing and invisible nature. She is interested in what a transcription of listening can produce, how it can narrate the environment differently, leading to different insights, sensibilities and consequences about the world we live in and how we live in it.
She would like to invite you to contribute with your own blog entries written from listening to Delhi. This can be from any environment you listen in: your home, or hotel room, the studio, the street, on the bus, a conversation, any moment of listening through which you encounter the city, a city some of you know very well and that is new to others. You are encouraged to write only once or everyday, and send these texts to firstname.lastname@example.org as you go along. The aim is to provide a different image of the place, one made from the relationships, processes and materials forming below the surface of the visible; to explore the landscape through its sound, to hear it as an environment, a timespace place that does not afford us a vista but grants us access to the mobility of its own production.
This phonographic project will be presented in London as part of “Points of Listening” a listening project organised by Mark Peter Wright Salomé Voegelin and in conjunction with CRiSAP (Centre for Creative Research in Sound Arts Practice) from 2014.
These workshops and presentations are a part of Sound Reasons Festival for sound art, contemporary Jazz and electronic music, Sound Reasons will take place in Delhi and Mumbai in the months of November and December 2013. With concerts, workshops and installations taking place across various venues, the main focus this year will be on live performances and jazz-electronic music crossover. The line up consists of diFfuSed beats, Salomé Voegelin, Jaga Jazzist, Andy Guhl, Grischa Lichtenberger, Eisentanz, Yashas Shetty, Jasch, edGeCut, da Saz, Hemant Sreekumar and Masta Justy. More artists will be added to this list in the near future. more info about installation, performances and workshops on http://soundreasons.in
21 Nov Wed | Ed Ruscha’ a 2 channel Sound Installation by Salomé Voegelin and David Mollin @ Khoj International Artists Association, Khirki Extension, New Delhi| Opens from 21 Nov to 25 Nov 2013 |
Ed Ruscha is a sound work that started with a recording made of one of the artists looking at Ed Ruscha’s Los Angeles Apartments, at the Basel Kunstmuseum in Switzerland, whose recent purchase of an edition of 25 black and white photographs of the same name provided the basis for the exhibition. The artist can be heard, along with a small number of other visitors, moving slowly from photograph to photograph, within the particular hushed surroundings of the Basel Kunstmuseum’s special exhibitions room. The artist then showed the catalogue of the exhibition to his blind mother at her house in Barry, South Wales, describing and discussing the photographs, while listening to the recording of the exhibition together.
David Mollin works as a writer and has regularly exhibited as a painter. Shows include ‘Century City’ as part of the ‘Big Blue’ at Tate Modern and ‘Gymnasion’ at the Bregenz Kunstverein. Mollin has worked collaboratively with Matthew Arnatt instigating together the project 100 Reviews, published by Alberta Press in association with, and exhibited at, Greengrassi London. He regularly collaborates with Salomé Voegelin on sound work, for example, exhibiting work as part of 4.55 in Bregenz, Austria. Mollin is on the editorial board and contributing writer for ‘/seconds’, an international research journal for contemporary art, and writes for various journals and publications. He edited ch-ch-ch-changes: Artsits talk about teaching, with John Reardon, published by Ridinghouse. He has organized and instigated the arts program, in collaboration with and for, the Swiss Church in London.
