CARE Series BGNM e.V.

  1. CARE Session by BGNM e.V.

This is the second installment of the BGNM's CARE series, featuring sound artist, composer, and sonic thinker Sam Auinger presenting recent work, followed by a discussion with Åsa Stjerna.

Since the 1980s, SAM AUINGER has dealt intensively with the subjects of composition, computer music, psychoacoustics, and sound design. Together with Bruce Odland, he founded O+A in 1989. Their central theme is a “hearing perspective”. Their projects include Garten der Zeitraume (Ars Electronica 1990, Linz), Traffic Mantra (Trajan’s Forum in Rome, 1991), sound design for Peter Sellars’ The Persians (Salsburger Festspiele 1993), Balance (Sonambiente Berlin 1996), Box 30/70 (beginning in 2000, Siemens, Berlin), and Blue Moon (New Sounds New York, 2004).

He and composer and musician Rupert Huber have a longstanding musical friendship. As DAAD fellowship recipients in 1997, they founded the media band berliner theorie. Auinger frequently works with composer Hannes Strobl (tamtam), choreographer Marguerite Donion, and composer Class Willeke. After several joint projects, Sam Auinger, Dietmar Offenhuber, and Hannes Strobl formed the artistic group stadtmusik in 2005.


ÅSA STJERNA is an installation artist who uses sound and listening as her artistic media of exploration. Through her site-specific sound installations, she explores the often hidden underlying historic, social, political and poetic phenomena connected to a place, making these perceivable. She is currently involved with several public art projects dealing with the articulation of urban spaces through sound and listening.
