21.-23. Feb 2020: MOVEMENT (1920 – 2020)
A FESTIVAL BEYOND AND BETWEEN BORDERS
ONASSIS FOUNDATION, Athens
curated by Detach (Voltnoi & Quetempo)
PORTS IN TRANSITION, sound work, commissioned by Goethe-Institute Athens and Onassis Stegi. Partner: Lenbachhaus Munich.
The sound piece „Ports in Transition“ explores the acoustic landscapes of the Mediterranean area as a transitory non-place. The composition is based on field recordings from archives and online databases. A central reference point is a field recording of ship horns at the port of Piraeus: for epiphany, the ships make their horn sound at the same time. During the production process, this material is used for sampling, as signals for modular synthesizers, as well as an instruction manual for alt-saxophone, bass clarinet, trumpet and flugelhorn.
