Schurer: Soliloquy Synthesis – “Cybernetic Noise Wash Version”
Multichannel Electroacoustic Diffusion
Lichthof Museum für Kunst und Kultur, Münster
3.9.2016
Start: 22h
–––
Bernd Schurer’s speziell für den Event entworfenes “Soliloquy Synthesis – Cybernetic Noise Wash” ist eine elektroakustische Live-Aufführung innerhalb der bühnenartigen Installation “Selbstgespräche nähern sich wie scheue Rehe” von Yves Netzhammer im Lichthof des LWL – Museums für Kunst und Kultur. Digital generierte Sound-Entitäten verwickeln sich in sich selbst koordinierende Klang-Monologe vor dem Hintergrund streng kybernetisch und algorithmisch erzeugter Flächen und Weissräumen. Sie erweitern dadurch die von Schurer für die Installation geschaffene Tonspur um ein dramatisches, räumliches Soundpiece.
–––
Der in der Schweiz aufgewachsene und in Berlin lebende Klangkünstler und Komponist Elektronischer Musik Bernd Schurer (* 1970) thematisiert in seinen Arbeiten Perzeptionsaspekte des Hörens. Mittels Techniken digitaler Klangsynthese, der Psychoakustik und der Erkundung der Zahl als gemeinsames Objekt von Musik und Mathematik sonifiziert er ein vielschichtiges Feld für Auseinandersetzungen spezifischer Erfahrungen von Raum, Psyche, Körper und Zeit.

[event] HYPERLINEAR #1 | Thomas ANKERSMIT / Bernd SCHURER | SPEKTRUM Art Science Community – Berlin

http://hyperlinear.net

I will prepare a version of my piece TONE  for diffusion at this event.

csm_hyperlinear_schurer

04/03/2016
Thomas Ankersmit | Bernd Schurer
Subject: Otoacoustic Emissions
20:00 SPEKTRUM, Berlin

Otoacoustic emissions (OAEs) are sounds given off by the inner ear when the cochlea is stimulated by a sound. When sound stimulates the cochlea, the outer hair cells vibrate. The vibration produces a nearly inaudible sound that echoes back into the middle ear. The sound can be measured with a small probe inserted into the ear canal.

For the first part of Hyperlinear the artists Bernd Schurer and Thomas Ankersmit will perform two shows focussing on the phenomenon of otoacoustic emissions. The expertise and different aesthetic approaches of the artists will give a contrasting insight and experience of the topic.

Thomas Ankersmit (1979, Leiden, Netherlands) is a musician and installation artist based in Berlin and Amsterdam.

Acoustic phenomena such as sound reflections, infrasonic vibration, otoacoustic emissions, and highly directional projections of sound have been an important part of his work since the early 2000’s. His music is also characterized by a deliberate misuse of the equipment, using feedback and disruptions to the signal, and the extremes of frequency and dynamics, to create visceral but finely detailed swarms of sound.

Since 2006 his main instrument, both live and in the studio, has been the Serge analogue modular synthesizer.
Bernd Schurer (*1970, Zürich, lives and works in Berlin) is a sound artist and composer. He studied Philosophy and Film Sciences (University of Zürich), Visual Art and Composition in Zürich and Lucerne .

In his work he addresses aspects of psychological and aesthetic perception via audition through means of digital sound-synthesis, electro-acoustics and experimental conceptual processes. A central practice is the inclusion of psychoacoustic phenomena and spatial multichannel composition.

The focus is exclusively on the sensation of hearing – these sound-pieces, albeit minimal in setup, are very physical and may be better experienced in a context that allows for a strong experiental concentration with an audience – thus installation work is often preferred over “music performance”.

His work comprises installations, concert performances, curating and audio releases as well as numerous collaborations with artists in the fields of transdisciplinarity and film, most notably his longstanding collaboration with swiss visual artist Yves Netzhammer.

[show] soliloquy synthesis, LWL Museum für Kunst und Kultur – MUENSTER

Soliloquy Synthesis

03.03.16 01.04.17

LWL MUSEUM FUER KUNST UND KULTUR, MUENSTER

7 channel electroacoustic sound

Superstructure

133 Minutes

https://www.lwl.org/LWL/Kultur/museumkunstkultur/ausstellungen/yves-netzhammer

A population of virtually synthesised characters and species soliloquizes and communicates in the superstructure of Yves Netzhammers Installation “Selbstgespräche nähern sich wie scheue Rehe” – this piece also incorporates analog modular synthesis and field recordings – a recency in my artistic practice since the year 1999. Nevermind.

Press:

Der Schweizer Künstler Yves Netzhammer (*1970) entwickelt eigens für den Lichthof eine raumgreifende Installation. Mittels Videoprojektionen, zeichnerischen und bildhauerischen Elementen schafft er ein Gefüge, das den Innenhof und seine umlaufenden Gänge in einer Erfahrungsebene zusammenführt.

Netzhammers bühnenartige Einbauten können einem Parcours gleich von den Besuchern betreten werden. Dort tauchen sie in eine physisch reale doch zugleich fiktionale Welt ein. In den computeranimierten Videosequenzen inszeniert Netzhammer einen Protagonisten, der als Projektionsfläche für Emotionen und Erlebnisse dient. Immer wieder taucht eine geschlechtslose Gliederpuppe ohne individuelle Eigenschaften auf, die allgemeine Wesensmerkmale des Menschen trägt. So befragt er das Verhältnis von Körpern zum Raum und schafft ein vielschichtiges Feld für Auseinandersetzungen. Die Wahrnehmung von Dingen, ihrer Umgebung und dem Menschen darin wird zu einer spezifischen Erfahrung von Zeit und Dasein in der Welt.

[broadcast] HIRNMUSIK

A recommended listen and a read by sound artist Simon Grab:

http://simongrab.ganzerplatz.ch/wordpress/hirnmusik/

 

“Hirnmusik” von Simon Grab

Eine Recherchearbeit in Form eines Hörspiels von mir zum Thema Musik im Kopf.
“Simon Grab nennt «Hirnmusik» ein Hybrid zwischen Radiofeature und Hörspiel. Tatsächlich geht er spielerisch um mit fiktionalen Elementen, Statements von Theoretikern und Praktikerinnen im Bereich der akustischen Künste und mit einer enormen Fülle von möglicher und unmöglicher Musik. Er entwickelt eine ganz neue Form, ein Thema durchzudenken, in der Fiktion, Argumentation und Assoziation einander ergänzen.”
Mit: Kurt Grünenfelder (Hirn), Carine Kapinga (Pflegerin), Simon Grab (Radiomacher und Autor), Computer und diverse analoge Synthesizer (die Maschine), und in Originalstatements mit Jens Badura (Philosoph), Patricia Bosshard (Komponistin und Violinistin), Dan Suter (Tonmeister), James S. Adams (Lärm-Musiker), Isabel Mundry (Komponistin), Raed Yassin (Improvisator und Künstler), Bernd Schurer, (Komponist und Computermusiker), Martin Bezzola (Klanggestalter), Christoph Grab (Jazz Musiker), Jörg Köppl (Klangkünstler), David Chazam (Pop-Experimentator), Rolf Inge Godøy (Musikwissenschaftler), Freya Bailes (Musikwissenschaftlerin), Rudolf Eber (Lärm-Musiker), Dave Phillips (Performance-Künstler), Jose Garcia (Chemiker und Naturheilpraktiker), Mike Hamerski (Musiker) und Willi Grab (Aromatiker)

[show] TONE | Sound Installation at Soundreasons Festival 2016 – New Delhi and Bangalore, India

TONE

 

TONE_SPEAKERS_Bernd Schurer 01

3 channel electroacoustic sound

loudspeaker system

duration: 93 min

Dimensions variable

Sound Reasons 2016, India

05 – 09 January Installations at Vadehra Art Gallery, DELHI

16 – 22 January Sound Installations at 1 Shanthi Road, BANGALORE

More information about the festival here: http://soundreasons.in/festival/

–––

Sound artists and composers have always worked with the effect of sound. But what is the difference when one actively and consciously applies psychoacoustic knowledge to composition? These 33 sound-pieces try to artistically explore the brain’s and the ear’s relation between objectivation and subjective perception using a series of digitally created tone patterns to stimulate otoacoustic emissions within the listener’s ear. An otoacoustic emission (OAE) is a sound which is generated from within the inner ear. In the sound-piece I am concentrating on evoking auditory perceptual and physical stimuli – when at least two tones with close fundamental frequencies are sounded together, another tone whose frequency is the sum or difference of the original two tones is heard. This ghost tone is purely made up by the human ear and brain. To compose with “absent sound” is the main inspiration to add to this relatively seldom experienced phenomenon (although a lot of “experimental composers” have integrated “ear-tones” in their artistic practice – Maryanne Amacher, Jacob Kirkegaard, Marcus Schmickler, Thomas Ankersmit et al).

In the 33 scripted sound-pieces in the installation version I will focus on three unique characteristics of ear-tones, composing soundforms that take place and agitate between the inside and the outside of the listener’s heads an using a non-symmetrical 3 channel speaker layout for diffusion and inclusion of the physical space in the gallery.

Supported by: http://www.prohelvetia.in

Artists: Bernd Schurer, Salome Voegelin, Raul Keller, Manuel Rocha Iturbide, Ish S (diFfuSed beats), Hemant Sreekumar, Colin Black, Shun Owada and others.

[screening] GRENZBOCK – Filmfestival HOF & BERLIN

 

GRENZBOCK, Documentary, 80 min (Teaser)

 

 

 

For the last time, Hubertus Meckelmann has the horn sound for a beating-hunt in the wild. The heart of the former parade ground is soon to be off-limits for hunting. For the territories around it, this is an imposition, since the carefully controlled populations of red deer, fallow deer and boar will be completely disrupted.

The return of the wolf cannot alter this, and most hunters in Brandenburg consider it unwelcome there, anyway.
GRENZBOCK accompanies three hunters through their forests and reveals in long, calm shots the worldviews beneath hunter-parlance and loden coats.

Binzmühlestrasse 156

Zürich

Die künstlerische Intervention von Yves Netzhammer im Neubau des EWZ-Unterwerk Oerlikon nimmt die formalen Elemente der Architektur auf und interpretiert diese auf das zu Sehende, also die Maschinen der Elektrizitätsumwandlung: Der ganze Innenraum, ausgenommen der Boden, ist mit Spiegeln ausgekleidet. Die Spiegel werden mit erzählerischen Zeichnungen und einem Raster aus Lampen erweitert. Dadurch entsteht ein gigantisches, unterirdisches Wahrnehmungslabyrinth. An der Fassade und im Innenraum sind insgesamt 8 Lautsprecher positioniert, welche einen metaphorischen Text vortragen. Dieses Sprachgebilde steuert die Leuchten und lässt dadurch im Innenraum unterschiedliche Raum- und Zeitverhältnisse erfahrbar werden.

synopsis
Alice and Frank move to a new flat in the country with their children. As their day-to-day life takes its course, Alice notices that Frank is worried about something. He only opens up to her gradually and the more he reveals about himself, the less Alice wants to know about the truth.

This is the story of an intense, inescapable confrontation between two spouses, as hidden secrets progressively come to light. In simple, but emotionally dense scenes, the film follows the everyday life of a family, which – initially almost unnoticed – gradually comes apart at the seams as Alice and Frank slide into a deep crisis after 18 years of marriage. Over the period of a year, the film shows the characters with their wishes and limitations. Their helplessness when faced with a truth that throws their previous life into turmoil: Frank feels more and more attracted to a man.
For her debut feature, Claudia Lorenz has worked with a highly distinguished crew and cast. In addition to award-winning co-author Rolando Colla, with female lead Ursina Lardi (TRAUMLAND, AKTE GRÜNINGER, DER VERDINGBUB, DAS WEISSE BAND), male lead Dominique Jann (DIE STANDESBEAMTIN, LUFTBUSINESS) and supporting male Antonio Buil (MILKY WAY, OPERATION LIBERTAD, COEUR ANIMAL) no less than three winners of the Swiss Film Prize are involved.

[event] DAVE PHILLIPS | SCHURER | KRUBE. | HACKLANDER \ HATAM – NK Berlin

http://www.nkprojekt.de/dave-phillips-bernd-schurer-krube-hacklander-hatam/

December 20th Doors 21:30 Concerts 22:00 Sharp!

DAVE PHILLIPS aka dp / BERND SCHURER / KRUBE. / HACKLANDER \ HATAM

Kindly supported by the INM

dave phillips/dp re/searches and ponders existences and behaviourisms humanimalistically via audio de/construction, psycho-acoustics and sonic rituals. sound as communication in direct and primal form, a tool of metaphysics, a conscience, an unrestrained language. sound as a means to activate primordial shared emotions otherwise hidden by civilised experience. dp’s work engages, invites existentialist rumination, demands awareness, endorses sentient and environmental e/quality and encourages intervention and responsibility; therapeutical aspects are acknowledged; a form of release is evoked, a liberating cleansing, a sound catharsis opposing the omnipresent reduction of existence, getting in touch with our sentient origins as with the realities of our times. dp rings in the era of humanimal.

dp’s humanimalism is a concept that describes a developed humanoid existence that has overcome the erroneous religious, material and supremacist phases of evolution, recognises itself as part of a whole and has grown into an empathic, conscientious creature that has learned to allow emotion to be an equal part in decision-making as the intellect, with social and environmental senses as primary and inherent functions.

sonic activist, composer, performer, researcher; solo-works as dave phillips/dp since 1987. part of SCHIMPFLUCH-GRUPPE since 1991.

founder of OHNE in 2000. co-founder of hardcore-extremists FEAR OF GOD in 1986. oneman-doom-project DEAD PENI since 2004. etc.etc.

—————————————————————————————
Bernd Schurer

Bernd Schurer is a forward-thinking experimental multidisciplinary artist, musician and curator with a background that comes from conceptual art practices, noise, electroacoustic- and radical computer- music. His work discards all formal habits commonly associated to categorisation in favor of personal aesthetic idiosyncrasies. Particularly involved in the artistic research on psychoacoustics, spatialization and computational algorithmic art, he focuses on perceptual realizations of these phenomenological implications in his works.

Schurer (born 1970, Zürich, Switzerland, based in Berlin, Germany) studied Philosophy and Filmsciences at the University Zürich, and Fine Arts at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Lucerne. He has given a multitude of audio presentations and concerts internationally since the late 1980′s, as well as installation- and digital media artworks, most notably at Documenta 12 and the Venice Art Biennial 2007, as part of his long-standing collaboration with swiss artist Yves Netzhammer.
He established the independent music label “domizil” in 1996, which is now run by co-founder Marcus Maeder. Apart from having been a member of avant-drone-metal outfit “soil” and his current electronic music project “NN”, he is very active in film postproduction and composition for film.

Hacklander \ Hatam: drums and computer music duo.

When you stare into the abyss and the abyss stares back into you…

A complacent life is a failed life.

Destruction of Self for renewal of self.

Elusive efforts towards a realization of dynamic autonomy in order to achieve eventual practical implementation of meta-jurisprudence.

(The intelligent always remain uncertain.)

– – – –

Formed spontaneously in Moscow during New Years 2013, the duo’s first piece was WAR SOUNDS for the Ertz Festival #14 in Bera, Spain.
Before converging as a duo, they each performed solo: Farah performed solo works such as ‘Directions for Decomposition’ and Colin, solo works such as ‘Next time, die consciously.’

Since their first show, the duo has created a 67-hour long piece for internet radio streaming for transmediale.de; collaborated with Swedish programming guru Fredrik Olofsson; performed at the Bucharest Philharmonic alongside Dumistrescu & Avram; and composed a chamber piece for the Hyperion Ensemble International, which premiered in October 2014 at the Tectonics Festival in Tel Aviv and will soon be performed in Berlin by the zeitkratzer ensemble.

Farahnaz Hatam is an experimental sound artist and is highly active in the Berlin experimental scenes. As an artist working with digital sound synthesis in SuperCollider, her current work is not only interested in sound as sculptural material, but as the medium in which ideas are communicated. Over 15 years professional work as a molecular biologist, Farahnaz arrived at sound through the visual arts. She has shared bills with Mouse on Mars, Jan Jelinek, Mika Vainio, PRSRZ & Mattin. Recent festival performances include OpenSound Lisboa & London, ERTZ #14 & Teenitus at Festsaal Kreuzberg.

Colin M. Hacklander is a self-taught drummer & composer based in Berlin. He has toured extensively worldwide, and has drummed with Capillary Action (NYC), The Observatory (SIN), fly rich (US), worked with Scottish composer James Dillon, Senegalese sabar legend Doudou N’diaye Rose, Mark Ernestus’ Jeri-Jeri (Senegal), toured with Charles Hayward of This Heat, performed with Stephen O’Malley, Shahzad Ismaily and others. Hacklander currently works with Farahnaz Hatam, Martin Maischein, Iancu Dumitrescu, Ana Maria Avram, NU Unruh of Einstürzende Neubauten, Maurizio Vitale, Jan Tilman Schade, Robin Hayward, Hilary Jeffrey and others…

[event] steintag

http://www.journalfuerkunstsexundmathematik.ch/steintag_9-12-2014/

Contributions of the Artists, 9. Dez. 2014,  Start: 18.02 Uhr im Journal für Kunst, Sex und Mathematik www.journalfuerkunstsexundmathematik.ch – begleitet vom Mini-Symposium „Zwischenstadien“, Beginn: 17.00 Uhr mit Susanne Pfeffer (Direktorin Fridericianum Kassel), Armen Avanessian (Philosoph), Nils Röller (Philosoph) und Konrad Tobler (Kultur-Journalist und Autor) anlässlich der Journal-Publikation „Über Kräfte“ (Merve, Berlin, 2014).

Ort: Kunstraum 5.K12, Zürcher Hochschule der Künste, Toni-Areal, Pfingstweidstrasse 96, 8031 Zürich (mit Apero).

Der Stein hat eine Seele, denn er kann andere Steine bewegen. Das nimmt die Aktion im Netz mit dem Titel „Steintag“ auf. Am Steintag werden online Bilder von Steinen gezeigt, die auf Bilder von Steinen oder Texte über Steine reagieren. Ins Rollen gebracht hat diese Bildbewegung das Journal für Kunst, Sex und Mathematik. Ein Blog und eine Edition, die seit 2006 online und offline aktiv sind. In diesem Jahr hat das Journal ein Buch im Berliner Merve-Verlag veröffentlicht, in dem es um Steine wie den Magneten oder den Bernstein mit besonderen Kräften geht. Im Blog-Ereignis zum „Steintag“ reagieren eingeladene KünstlerInnen, DichterInnen und TheoretikerInnen mit ihren Beiträgen auf Steine aus dem Buch.

Die Beiträge werden ab 18.02 Uhr live online gepostet. Primzahlen legen den Takt fest, in dem die Beiträge online gehen.

„Eingefasst“ wird der Steintag vom Mini-Symposion Zwischenstadien, das in der realen Welt der Zürcher Hochschule der Künste ab 17.00 Uhr stattfindet. Es thematisiert den sich verändernden Status von in sich geschlossenen Kunstwerken. Ist das Werk nicht vielmehr ein Zwischenstadium unterwegs zu etwas anderem, einem Buch, einer Ausstellung oder einem Blogbeitrag? Die Beiträge zu den „Zwischenstadien“ diskutieren die Grenzen, die ein abgeschlossenes Werk von Formen des Werdens trennen anhand von Rückblicken und Ausblicken auf Ausstellungen wie „Speculations on Anonymous Materials“, „Nature after Nature“, der Bücher „Speculative Drawing“ und „Über Kräfte“ und des Blogs „Journal für Kunst, Sex und Mathematik“ mit: Susanne Pfeffer (Direktorin Fridericianum Kassel), Armen Avanessian (Philosoph), Nils Röller (Philosoph) und Konrad Tobler (Kultur-Journalist und Autor) anlässlich der Journal-Publikation „Über Kräfte“ (Merve, Berlin, 2014).

Zwischenstadien-Steintag ist eine Zusammenarbeit des Instituts für Gegenwartskunst der ZHdK (IFCAR) und dem Journal für Kunst, Sex und Mathematik unter Mitarbeit von Marina Sawall.

Das Journal für Kunst, Sex und Mathematik speichert seit 2006 in einem elektronischen Blog Text- und Bildbewegungen. Sex bezeichnet dabei die Notwendigkeit, die Konstruktion von Geschlechtsidentitäten – und die Polaritäten zwischen ihnen – zu diskutieren angesichts der ständigen, gebetsmühlenartigen Indienstnahme des Begriffs. Kunst evoziert die Infragestellung der künstlerischen Praxis, Mathematik die Auseinandersetzung mit formalen Systemen. Seit 2006 posten kontinuierlich Barbara Ellmerer, Yves Netzhammer und Nils Röller (von 2010-2011 auch Judith Albert). Sie geben eine gleichnamige Edition heraus.

[screening] die demokratie ist los! – Zürich Film Festival

Europe is in a crisis. On the right fringes of the political landscape, ever-louder anti-European, anti-Islamic and nationalist voices can be heard. These are mingled with the praises of a country that has supposedly done everything right: Switzerland, and its direct democracy. Yet in Switzerland, this direct democracy has reached its boundaries. Called for by the Swiss electorate, such constitutional amendments as the anti-minaret or deportation initiatives contravene the basic principles of internationally recognized human rights conventions. This film explores the call for direct democracy in the neighboring countries of Austria, Germany and France, contrary to the experiences of our country regarding the limitations of such a political system. At the same time, the documentary addresses the question of what actually constitutes the Swiss population, as this proves to be much more heterogeneous than politicians often portray.
