Those of your neighbourhood and the electronic ones. Signals. Live. In the gallery. Over.
A musical encounter of two sound artists – Maciej Bączyk aka _N_A__G___R____A_ and Marcin Dymiter aka emiter – is a search for connections between electronics and field recording. The city is a fusion of sounds of human speech, nature, technology; it is full of surprising noise compositions. A similar synthesis will be created by artists in their set, in which they’ll be combining electronics with field recordings.
Audio surprises, twists and turns, small and big sound worlds. Do you know the soundscape of your neighbourhood?
The event accompanies the SIGNALS / Interactive Playground exhibition, and also the Polish Nationwide Seminar with artists and researchers: “Field recording in Poland – research and artistic aspects” (organized by: The Soundscape Research Studio, Institute of Cultural Studies, University of Wrocław).
