Curatorial projects (selection)

Projects curated as founder and director of (T)Raum

(T)Raum is an international project that aims to diffuse and create connections- and contents - for research by  sound artists.
"Today, dealing with sound art theory, I wonder whether deepening the field of sound in public space could create a new "genre". As a researcher in the field of sonic urban spaces I can gain knowledge about the relationships between urban planning and listening situations provided by sound and multimedia artists. What I mean are particular listenings that create common aggregation points in the physical space, and mainly, the technological possibility of virtually connected urban spaces through live stream and time shift. Thats why in my future research I want to go deeper in this direction, working on permanent sound installations focusing on aesthetic quality and long-term sustainability. The first step to connect my interests with the well known network of sound artists and sonic practictioners with this common interest was the foundation of (T)Raum, a dynamic project and platform for sound art. I founded it in 2016 as a cooperation with international artists, supported by AGON (electronic music center in Milan) and the sound artist Bill Fontana, for whom I work as a personal assistant now. (T)Raum is based on the presentation, discussion and theory of sound art and its parallel genres in the aforementioned fields. The alignment of (T)Raum focuses both on the characteristics of electronic music culture, as well as on the conceptual design of sound for site specific projects. In recent years, this project has also dealt with the production of theoretical content and its mediation (in collaboration with IKLECTIC London). One of my future plans is for (T)Raum to become a stronger institution based on my self designed theory on sound art as an "aesthetic laboratory“, building it through academic laboratories with students and research groups, originating from "Aesthetic Experiments: Sound Art and Concepts for the Development of Auditory Knowledge“.

Curating sound art events like performances, installations and talks for Roberta Busechian means to approach sonic acting - sharing theoretical contents and building connections between sound artists and their research.

Projects curated at Errant Sound space (Berlin)

What does it mean to explore sound art as an audiovisual practice? Today there are too many facades of the audio-visual phenomenon, it’s aesthetic, theoretical and epistemological reception to speak about audiovisual works as relation between sound and image. That’s why the AUDIOVISUAL SCREENINGS PROGRAM at Errant Sounds wants to look at audiovisuality as a medium of sound art, seeking to work out the possibilieties of video screening as a sonic experience, focusing on how an audio-visual input could influence our reception of the content and how our habitual multi-sensory perception could be trained to focus on the acoustic facade of a (video) storytelling.
To ground this research both on a theoretical and practical level, emphasizing it through works by international sound artists working in different ways within sound for video, there will be not a fixed
presenation format. The AUDIOVISUAL SCREENINGS PROGRAM will interact with screening possibilities in the space, developing different settings and listening modalities depending on the presenting artist and the presented work distinguishing between i.e documentary work, video art or interactive installation. Being
aware of the interdisciplinary field of sound and visual streaming, it will be necessary to ground the presentation methods on fields connotative for sound art as acoustics and sound studies, musicology, media studies, interactive media, sound design, geography, urban planning ad studies, anthropology. The screening
will be installed and/or performed with different streaming technologies and technical equipment, putting the
focus on the presentation and fruition during the single events by the invited public. For this reason the program includes talks by the presenting artists and Errant Sound artists, as external contributors, involving also the audience itself as active partecipant of every event of the program.
The program will be divided in five parts
Stream I: Field AUDIOVISUAL
Stream II: Performed AUDIOVISUAL
Stream III: Installed AUDIOVISUAL
Stream IV: Mediated AUDIOVISUAL
Stream V: Interactive AUDIOVISUAL

PUBLIC TALK BY BILL FONTANA

19.11.2019

Bill Fontana will be at Errant Sound to speak about his appoach to time and streaming of sound in a conversation and screening moderated by Roberta Busechian.

The event aims to open a dialogue between the artist and the audience, focusing on his recent works, reveling his practice between different decades and definitions of time and space through site specific sound installations.
