Exhibition, performance, and discussions
With the Untraining the Ear Listening Sessions, SAVVY Contemporary, Deutschlandfunk Kultur, and CTM Festival propose exercises to decipher sound beyond its contextual affiliation of geography, genre, and valences of identity. It is an attempt to press II [pause] to the daily storm of sonic vibrations, and voice a call to examine and explore the auditory beyond the hearing and start to LISTEN.
For the eighth session, the renowned composer, experimentalist, and sound/media artist Pamela Z will engage with Untraining the Ear through a sonic exhibition and a solo performance around her work Sonic Gestures. This media installation, created for a 360º immersive environment, consist of multiple channels of video and audio composed of fragmented gestural images. The work surrounds the audience with a virtual chorus of chattering, whispering, singing, and ever transforming sonic entities.
