Wer ist Klangkunst? | Klangkunst in Berlin

präsentiert von field notes und Music Pool Berlin

Berlin is internationally known as the capital of contemporary music. For decades, the city has been developing a lively and diverse field of innovative artistic practice with a great independent scene. On closer inspection, the scene can be classified in individual sub-scenes. For example, music theater or Echtzeitmusik are embedded in a larger network with their own anchor positions, and - despite permeable border regions - are well defined.
By contrast, sound art, which is no less active or diverse in Berlin, has no comparable network structures. The individual actors work largely independently of each other and have so far classified their projects into the musical offerings of the independent scene and established houses, as well as some exhibition halls.

*** Who is sound art? ***
The sound art genre is conceptually and phenomenologically difficult to classify. Determinations regarding content always seem to overtake themselves; notably, its fluid dynamics seem to be determinative. This is why we will replace the question »What is sound art?«, with the question »Who is sound art?«. From the sum of all participants of the open forum, we hope to get an understanding of the connections between the various forms of sound art in Berlin.

The open forum invites all those who identify their work with the sound art genre to gather for this conversation.

Moderation: Prof. Dr. Sabine Sanio
Sabine Sanio studied German language and literature and philosophy, doctorate, lives in Berlin, since 1991 numerous publications, radio broadcasts and lectures on current aesthetics, in particular on media theory and aesthetics, on phenomena in the border regions of the arts and on the idea of aesthetic experience. Numerous publications, radio broadcasts and lectures on new music, the relationship between art and media and 20th century aesthetics.

On this occasion the magazine Positionen celebrates the current issue #120 with the same title ≫Wer ist Klangkunst?≪. The two editors Andreas Engström and Bastian Zimmermann are on site.
