The Voice Observatory / inaugural event


Das Projekt wird als Labor für die Untersuchung der Stimme und ihre informativen, performativen und sozio-politischen Dimensionen verstanden. “The Voice Observatory” vereint auf formaler Ebene Klanginstallationen, theoretische Vorträge, Podiumsdiskussionen und Performances. Diese werden mithilfe der Konzepte und Ideen der Künstler so artikuliert, dass die gesamte Veranstaltungsreihe als eine einzigartige Erfahrung wahrgenommen wird.

This project is imagined as a laboratory of investigation into phenomena related to the voice in its acoustic, informative, performative, and socio-political dimensions. The Voice Observatory brings into a common platform sound installations, theoretical presentations, panel discussions, and performances. The general aim of this project is to create a space in which old and new hypotheses, artistic works, and theoretical concepts related to the voice can enter into a productive dialogue.
