Stage “Field Recording” du 18 au 22 mars 2019 / Phonurgia

Le maître du Soundscape revient à Arles pour enseigner l’art de peindre le paysage à coup de mono, de stéréo, de binaural et d’autres procédés de captation ou de restitution de son cru. Au travers de repérages de nuit, de jour, de prises de son dans les rues, dans les monuments, au bord des étangs et sur les plages de Camargue, les participants de ce Workshop vont tenter de capturer l’âme d’Arles.

23rd February : SHORT FILM – NUR TON at Festival SonOhr (Bern, Switzerland)

SonOhr Festival

As sound engineer for over a decade, Félix Blume collects sounds all over the world for his own archives and for film projects. One day he realized, that the hunt for sounds produces images that are often absurd, poetic and funny, so he started to collect not only the sounds but also the images. His short films show the caring and careful work of the archivist and offer an unusual perspective on the collected sound: We hear the rustling sound of an empty can and see a man strangely chasing that can with his microphone boom in the Chilean desert. We see that boom used as a fishing pole on a quay in Turkey and hear the sound in the perspective of the bait.
Félix Blume presents his short films and talks about his work as a sound archivist.
23rd of February 16:30 – Kino REX 2
Join us for a sound walk with sound archivist Félix Blume. Together we sharpen our sense of hearing and listen to the city. Through different listening exercises we focus on that surrounds us, that we try to blend out and forget, the tiny sounds that get lost in our daily lives. For an instant we blur the line between sound, music and noise and perceive our surroundings as a symphony. Thus, an allegedly well-known world can be experienced anew.

The 14th Forum Expanded is moving to a new location: The silent green Kulturquartier will open a new Berlin exhibition venue and the big group exhibition will be the inaugural event. The 1600 square meter Betonhalle on the grounds of the former Wedding crematorium will soon serve primarily as a venue for film and video exhibitions, as well as for concerts and conferences. The group exhibition will be expanded into Ebensperger Rhomberg Gallery and Luxoom Lab, spaces also located on the silent green grounds. Around 14 – 16 film, video- and sound-installations as well as performances will be presented.
In an era when moving images are omnipresent, media transgressions, if they can actually be called that nowadays, are determined by other parameters. The tension between art and cinema seems to have mainly dissolved, and instead we meet each other in mutual echo chambers. What we find in this year’s Forum Expanded programme reflects, above all, the changed relationship between the moving image and life as it is lived. A mythological theme – the song of the Sirens and the Odyssey – is transposed into a present that is just as much characterised by migration, displacement and the shadow of colonial history, as by the affective feedback loops that we are exposed to, not only in the social media. ANTIKINO investigates ways out of the echo chamber.
