Exhibition MEX / Künstlerhaus Dortmund, Dortmund


13 October – 18 November 2018
Exhibition mexhibition (Ist das weg? Oder kann das Musik?) in mex, Künstlerhaus Dortmund, Sunderweg 1, 44147 Dortmund (DE). Link FB. Link exhibition.
Me and Janneke van der Putten will participating in the “Sonic Chair” on this exhibition and we will perform on 17.11.
Crawling wires of metal, fluttering magnetic tapes, an automatic band, a whole chair full of speakers, small dithering umbrellas and quite a few things more. That isn’t music, is it? Works at the intersection between art and music tend to fall between the tracks. The ability to understand sounds as something musical, opens up space to experience another dimension with our senses. To experience spatiality. So why should we distinguish an old folk song from the tictac of traffic lights; or the recording of a rowing boat from trumpets on tape machines. They are all chances to grasp environment acoustically and to experience it sensuously. What could be more sensual than for example Rolf Julius’ composition „Old Piano Concert for the Weser“, in which he placed speakers along the river Weser. Sound art means to let yourself be surprised by ideas that manifest themselves affectionately through sound. In the exhibition one can observe the routes of different satellites whose tracks on the earth’s surface can be transformed into music. Or you can generate tones and pictures from your own skin by a special sensor. How would that sound? And even if works fall between the tracks at the intersection between art and music, at the mexhibition we will have a special sonic chair with built-in speakers, so you can sit right in the middle of several sound art compositions by different artists.
Nonprofit association mex has been organizing experimental and intermedia concerts at the Künstlerhaus for 26 years. From the beginning it has always been in love with sound art and installations, too.

Reviews of some last releases

Review of “Raw Field Recordings II: Electromagnetic Detritus” in Vital Weekly 1094 (NL) / Reseña de “Raw Field Recordings II: Electromagnetic Detritus”
http://www.vitalweekly.net/1094.html
“For some time now Chrs Galarreta lives and works in The Netherlands, having left his homeland Peru, even when he is here too something of a nomad. Traveling to and from places to perform his or install his sound art pieces he is a keen listener to the environment around him. Usually armed with hand-made electromagnetic transducers, which pick up sound that may not be audible to the human ear. On ‘Raw Field Recordings II’ you just get that; raw field recordings without any transformation, from Lima to Vienna and from Paris to the Lacandona Jungle, and it’s all quite noisy with heavy electrical sparks and current, line hum from inside a train, fluorescent lamp, mobile phone or an electric generator box. It is not something you haven’t heard before; think for instance of the work of Joe Colley or Disinformation, but Galarreta does an equally interesting job as those composers, which culminates in the longest track here, a live recording from Paris, in which, so I assume, he uses all of those field recordings (found on this disc, or otherwise) to create a collage of these somewhat unusual recordings, tying him into the world of Colley and Meirino even more. Quite a beauty this recording and with some excellent suppressed aggression.” (Frans de Waard)
