Vertovism – World premiere AGGREGATnEUROPA
This coming Saturday, November 2, the core of our project VERTOVISm – the composition of the AGGREGATnEUROPA – at the Morphonic Lab XVIII, one of the major international festivals for experimental music, performance and art. Over 30 sounds of worldwide work have reached us and form the basis of the 40-minute composition. It is complemented by multilingual poetry, selected by the people from Dresden, who then recorded it exclusively for us. The MorphonicLab is only the starting point. In 2020, the composition will be performed as a multi-channel installation and live set at several exhibition openings.
AGGREGATnEUROPA is the newly founded open genre laboratory of Kultur Aktiv e. V. and Alte Feuerwache Loschwitz e. V. for sound, speech and image research.
In a call for projects, protagonists, enthusiasts and comrades-in-arms were sought all over the world who consciously do not have to be artists, composers or musicians, but who can be actively involved in this project with field recordings. The call was made via personal international networks of the organizers, via social media, via international art project channels. A so-called “world map of working sounds” of the most diverse working worlds is to be created: Sound, noise, the rustling and crackling of industrial plants, crafts enterprises, computer cabinets, farms, ships, laboratories, etc.
Supported by the Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachsen. This measure is co-financed with tax money on the basis of the budget decided by the representatives of the Saxon state parliament.
