16th meeting, Wednesday, July 27th

MoKS presents:
with Florian Tuercke
Wednesday, July 27th

* ALL DAY action at a location in the city to-be-announced *
* EVENING presentation from 6-8pm at Eesti Rahva Muuseum *

!!! The URBAN AUDIO van will be set up to receive visitors throughout the day on July 27th, at a location in central Tartu to-be-announced by the evening of July 26th on the helikoosolek blog, facebook page, and mailing list. !!!

Florian Tuercke will introduce URBAN AUDIO, a project that he has worked on for 6 years now. With URBAN AUDIO he transforms the noise of public space to musical abstractions. Special instruments are temporarily placed in urban situations and transform any ambient sounds to musical tones. The acoustical structure of each situation is the compositional basis for the music that is extracted from urban space. The result mirrors the urban environment as musical abstraction.

more information and recent projects on: www.urban-audio.org

In Tartu, Florian Tuercke will record musical abstractions during the day (places and time to be announced on the helikoosolek:tartu-blog) and present the instruments and the recordings in the evening.

Florian Tuercke (born 1977) lives and works in Nuernberg (Germany). He has performed this project in Budapest, Zurich, 27 Cities in the USA, 17 German cities and recently in Turku and Tallinn.

helikoosolek:tartu is a regular gathering for the exploration of sound in all forms.  The meetings comprise presentations, concerts, workshops, discussions, and field trips pertaining to sound and its consideration in art, music, architecture, ecology, philosophy, social and cultural interaction, and any other context that presents itself. Participants are encouraged to propose activities or discussions on topics of their interest, or to present projects of their own for feedback.  Sessions take place on the last Wednesday of each month, from 6-8pm at the Eesti Rahva Muuseum.

helikoosolek:tartu is organised my MoKS and supported by Eesti Rahva Muuseum.
