revenant:tartu - site specific soundscape explorations
The 8th edition of helikoosolek:tartu will be led by its regular moderator Patrick McGinley as an exploration of group actions within specific spaces. The group will explore concepts of active participation within a space's soundscape through a series of games, exercises and improvisations in various spaces within the Eesti Rahva Muuseum itself, experimenting with materials, shapes, resonances, surfaces, distances, and micro and macro sound events, towards a series a private group 'performances' to happen around the building. All sounds will originate from materials found in-situ, and from interactions with the space itself, and no artificial amplification will be used.
McGinley will also present a series of short audio and video recordings dealing with the same topic, from the collected activities of revenant:sound, an ongoing project with open membership that focuses on site-specific acoustic actions.
helikoosolek:tartu is organised my MoKS and supported by Eesti Rahva Muuseum, Tartu Linnavalitsus, and Eesti Kultuurkapital.
