Memory at the Time of the Anthropocene:
Notes on the Post-Archive

“Das Gedächtnis im Anthropozän: Notizen zum Post-Archiv.” Es geht um eine Neuorientierung des Archivbegriffs vor dem Hintergrund des sich wandelnden Gedächtnisbegriffes. Die Leitfrage meiner Überlegungen lautet: Wie sieht ein Archiv aus, dass kein Speicher ist?

The lecture concerns new perspectives on the archive before the background of an evolving understanding of memory and remembering. I focus on the question as to whether we can think the archive as anything other than a storage facility.

The Acousmatic Lectures are a series of discursive auditory experiences based on the Pythagorean acousmatic model, a mode of presentation in which the orator is hidden from the public. Acousmatic presentation encourages both orator and listeners to focus exclusively on the spoken word, its temperament, tone, and stimulus, without the visual aid of supplementary images or the body language of the speaker. For this series of lectures, all visual clues provided by the speaker’s facial and bodily expressions, which are capable of influencing the reception of the information presented, are to remain hidden. Nonetheless, the physical presence of the speaker will still be made evident through the speaker’s voice, all acoustical aspects, and their dissemination into the space surrounding him/her. In so doing, the dialectical confrontation between abstract and sensorial information is underscored.

The Voice Observatory / inaugural event

Human_voice_spectrogram

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.

The Inner Acoustic

Was ist die innere Stimme und wie funktioniert sie in Bezug auf das Außen? Wir werden uns auf die Stimme als einen Raum konzentrieren, in dem das Spannungsfeld zwischen Privat und Öffentlich erscheint. Die Stimme des Kindes bzw. ihre klingende Resonanz können als Sphäre verstanden werden, wo der Klang als Suchwerkzeug fungiert, in einer Zeit, in der die Idee von Intimität noch keine vollständige Form angenommen hat. Weiterhin werden die Stimme des Unbewussten, Phantom-Stimmen, und sogar die unerhörte Stimme uns dabei helfen, über die stillen Funktionen der Stimme zu forschen.

Acoustics is mostly understood in terms of architectural spaces and materiality external to the body. Yet what of the resonances and echoes that transverse the inner rooms of the body? The inner voices and sounding memories that impart so much influence onto our perceptions and understandings? If acoustics assists in orienting ourselves spatially, the inner soundings are equally complex events by which we navigate the world.

Bringing together international artists focused on the inner voice, vocal resonance, and the poetics of the sounded, the exhibition gives important attention to the voice as an audible threshold between inner and outer.

The exhibition is presented as part of Transmediale and CTM Vorspiel program 2015.
