SPATIAL PRACTICES – Edgard Varèse professorship

EDGARD VARÈSE PROFFESSORSHIP WS 17/18 TU BERLIN

PROGRAM
Spatial Practices I-X

SEMINAR I – SPATIAL PRACTICES I
Composing with Sculptural Sound Phenomena in Computer Music.
Practical seminar on terms and compositional considerations in advanced loudspeaker environments.

The concept of the sculptural in computer music will be explained, learned and implemented in compositioninal practice. Based on different methods for the generation of sound textures, the two models of spatialization (1st and 2nd order) are treated first in order to be able to prepare and produce differentiated spatial textures. For this purpose, different loudspeaker systems (IKO, dome) and projection methods (WFS, Ambisonics) are used and compared. Based on this, body-space relations are modeled and discussed within compositional process. The resulting sculptural sound phenomena are then examined for their reproducibility and intersubjective qualities, in order to learn a productive and media-critical approach towards common sound projection methods.

SEMINAR II – SPATIAL PRACTICES II
Theory seminar
Space concepts in the auditive arts. Towards a Shared Perceptual Space – (SPS)

Acousmatic music is the only sonic medium that concentrates on space and spatial experience as aesthetically central.
(Smalley, 2007, 35)

Space plays a central role in loudspeaker music. The term space, however, has never been used consistently here. Through the investigation and discussion of various approaches from science and media theory from the past 70 years, the seminar aims to find out which space type or which spatial concept can make a practical contribution to contemporary composition. Interdisciplinary computer music always incorporates extra-musical spatial considerations. If we want to examine sculptural sound phenomena in compositional terms, we have to develop an understanding of room acoustics, different spatial concepts, different loudspeaker systems as well as the acoustic conditions of sound.

BESSY II VSR sound sculptures from light impulses at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin

Cooperation between the research group at Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin and gksh of BESSY II VSR.

By mid-2017 five sound sculptures will be produced using the icosahedral loudspeaker on the basis of the synchrotron data.
The storage ring BESSY II VSR in Adlershof produces extremely brilliant photon pulses from the long-wave terahertz range to the hard X-ray radiation.

In the cause of the OSIL-project and the final works for the doctorate at the artistic-scientific doctoral school of the KUG the experiments and compositional processes have started.

“floating points” – Passing Places at Bruch and Dallas Cologne

01.10.2015
8. p.m.
Bruch & Dallas, Ebertplatz Köln

floating points – Sound Installation for a video space

The exhibition of Daniel Burkhardt’s recently completed video work Passing Places, which can be visited since the 4th of September 2015 at Bruch & Dallas in Cologne, provides the occasion for another working collaboration.
floating points is a sound installation in the exhibition space installed in such a way that the two works become a third. The moving image is transferred to the sound space in terms of content and form. This auditory transfer, in turn, has an effect on the perception of the images. Coordinates are currently converted to fields, get into a flow, return and deform again.

Daniel Burkhardt and Gerriet K. Sharma have a long working relationship, an exchange on the more improbable functions of the composition of sound and image.
