Opening Reception on Friday, September 20, 7 p.m.
Urban spaces are not but a conglobation of houses, industrial estates, and streets, they are an expression of a heterogeneously cultural, social, economical, and political society, and the stage of (revolutionary) transitions. The sound of European, African or Asian cities is marked by the complex matrix of their social practices. Cities have their characteristic yet hardly prehensible acoustic pattern. Since the beginning of the 20th century they have fascinated artists who initially captured the reality of the city via film or sound recordings, or like the futurists who celebrated the noise of the industrialised city as the symbol for a new society. Today’s sound artists’ interest has differentiated itself outbound from the concretely recorded sound, the focus is always on new aspects of urbanity: on meanings and memories or abstracted structures, or the work is created from the contact with the city and in interactions of the people living there.
