lighter life draws sonica layout free

a conceptual framework for performance, active observation and its benefits to the mind- a public and practice based exploration within consciously created circumstance:

Piotr Bockowski  – Anastasia Freygang

with sound by Cao and Paul Jones

Taking the principle of a life drawing class where observation leads to interpretation this format induces expanding space for concentration. By allowing time for the viewer to absorb the given expression of the performers it is the act of drawing that marks the inter-exchange between audience and artist.

First set by Piotr Bockowski with music by Cao for an act of beheading, composed of a series of compulsive gestures triggered by the sonic exorcism of CAO. She incarnates an ancient peruvian pre-Incan pre colonial empress performing musical human sacrifice on Piotr Bockowski extending his body into a neurotic pyramid

Second set by Paul jones in collaboration with Anastasia Freygang playing layers of electronica to guitar and samples of spoken word. The performance is dealing with self exposure, musing on human presence in poems and conversation. playing your brain

A living tableaux with a mind on its own where performers share their practice for the benefit of activating exchange and learning in communally attended sessions

alois yang | Hear The World Ending

The musical content in this sound installation reflects the orbits’ timeframe within which asteroids might impact the Earth. The composition will only be complete at the exact moment of collision – in other words, the end of the world.
Each asteroid has been given a sound interpretation according to data from NASA’s Near Earth Object Program.
The position of each sound (asteroid) within the soundscape interprets the relative position between the Earth (the observer), and the asteroid’s orbit, which remain in constant motion through space and time. As the observer moves the projection around in space as an act of “searching,” the interactive star map and the the sounds align to reveal the location of the asteroids in space.

Astronomers at Stanford University recorded acoustical pressure waves in the Sun by carefully tracking movements on its surface with the Michelson Doppler Imager on the SOHO spacecraft. Acoustical waves bounce from one side of the Sun to the other in about two hours, causing its surface to oscillate. These sound waves are normally at frequencies too low for the human ear to hear, so the scientists have sped up the waves 42,000 times and compressed 40 days of vibrations into a few seconds…

Using these recordings I created a musical instrument using an old Tascam four-track tape recorder and a three minute looping cassette, by recording the four tracks at different speeds I was able to create differently pitched variations of the original sound and using the volume sliders, pitch and EQ settings I am able to control these tones making a playable version of the original recordings of the Sun.

Blanca Regina will play with live projections and live processed voice and objects

Exploring scales in kontext :

Part Inspired part disillusioned by Pythagorean Harmony Of The Spheres. Our aim is to create a musical performance based on the principals of scale,  harmony, distance, and dissonance.

Involving pre recorded music/sound tuned to personal scales, and accompanied by 2 Wizards and a collection of mobile phones played by wandering friends
Distance is irrelevant!

Piano Drones live in the gallery exploration by Kiriakos Spirou, our current resident for HIAS

The project “Piano Drones” is a work in progress, exploring the potential of electroacoustic piano performance in creating drone soundscapes and lush auditory textures.

Technically speaking, the main characteristic of the piano sound is its attack, that is, how the hammers hit the strings inside the instrument. In “Piano drones” this attack is softened, simulating the indian tampura and electronic-based drone music. As an event, the performance of “Piano Drones” offers itself as a deep auditory experience, and an opportunity to meditate on the subtle details and fluctuations of the piano strings.


During this event we will be screening visual works onto our shop front for a public to access from the street
