Together with Carsten Stabenow I’m going to present a walk to the participants of the SOCCOS RESIDENCY PROGRAM. The walk is presented in the framework of the CTM festival in Berlin and tries to bridge connections between my approach to listening as intervention and the topic of the CTM festival 2016 New Geographies. The walk takes place on the 30th of january 2016 in Kottbusser Tor, Berlin. See HERE the keynotes produced for the walk.

3 NEW VIDEOS ON LINE – LINKS TO WATCH THEM
I’ve recently published on line 3 new videos. They all relate to my research on listening as intervention and the activation of the acoustic space. +++ IN THE BLINK OF A EAR The video sees me triggering the acoustic response of an empty building by hitting the wall with a stick. To emphasize the hit, I adopted the following visual association: silence=black / sound=light. The title of the video is a clear reference to that. +++ UNDER THE BRIDGE Passages under bridges have always been interesting places for acoustic tests. In this video, the resonance of a concrete tunnel is triggered by the explosion of a series of firecrackers. +++ EXAGGERATED FOOTSTEPS This is me walking through different rooms of the same building. I compare the acoustic response of each room by means of a pair of metal plates that I attached to the sole of my shoes.
