Alina Ozerova (Netherlands/Russia) sonó/curso
This participatory sound installation is an invitation to become physical with sound, to explore it in a series of exercises. Three plywood objects form a set-up for non-vertical listening similar to a playground. In a playful way the artist offers to the audience sonic experiences recorded on public buses in Quito (Ecuador).
Yolanda Uriz Elizalde (Spain) ~.Soinusain.~
An intimate immersive experience inside sono-olfactive micro-environments. Visitors may enter any of three hanging cubical hexagons, activating a 1-on-1 sound and smell experience. Partially deprived of sight, the visitor’s senses are enhanced and transported to other symbolic universes.
Stelios Manousakis (Netherlands/Greece) ‘Act so that there is no use in a centre’
Act so that there is no use in a centre is an abstracted and deconstructed spatial radio play. It sets Rooms from Gertrude Stein’s seminal language-art book Tender Buttonsas a distributed, radio-transmitted, interactive sound art installation. The work deals with fragmentation, interference, and distortion of memory, place, and meaning.
