Keynote: Jamie Allen
Beyond the Media Reveal: Full of Sound and Fury, Signifying… What?
Jamie Allen

The media arts seem quite concerned with a particular set of binaries: mediums and messages, contexts and contents, forms and functions. These dualities seem endlessly fascinating, as they allow for repeated reassertions of materialist reveals, exposing how aesthetic “illusion” is produced by “real" infrastructure. Media arts and activism are forever disclosing the nervy tensions between signals and their substrates, hiding-in-plain-sight—images are composed of pixels that consume the energy of electrons; moving images laid bare as a mere perceptual delusion of stroboscopic sequence; what we call “sound” entrains near-negligible variations of pressure waves; the Internet is but a crisscrossing of wires at the bottom of Earth’s oceans; you’re carrying a piece of Africa around in your pocket. Once internalised by communities of practice and concern, and taken up by popular imaginaries and culture—that is, once these points are made—what more can we do with these insights, what can come after these important media reveals?

Using examples from the study, theory and practice of infrastructures (made of matter, ideas and people) I would like us to think together about what we think the arts and sciences of media can do to push beyond the materialist and constructivist debunking of media as infrastructure. How might we find ways of addressing the current crises of environment, politics and identity in technologically-saturated cultures that provide something in addition to these now somewhat repetitive, pseudo-novel reveals? And how can we productively question suppositions that such revelation is always inherently interesting or radical? What preliminary or speculative, non-binary and non-representational, strategies and openings appear when we cease presuming and declaring technological-saturation as inescapable? Can hopeful interventions and improvisations occur in the media-technological undercommons?

As someone I love recently said to me, “the things you pay attention to grow”, and the question of what media practices, as arts of attention, cultivate and propagate, is always in need of essential re-examination. What energies and relevances can be recovered in an art, research and pedagogy that are not in advance denatured or economized, but hopeful, supportive, expressive and generative of the presence and attentions needed to allow good things to grow?

Digital Dynamics in Nordic Contemporary Art: Art's New Environments*

Afforded by digital dynamics, current contemporary art evolves contingently with immersive technology and manifests in environments as much as in concepts or objects. From a survey of artist testimonials collected for the book Digital Dynamics in Nordic Contemporary Art (Intellect, 2019), it seems that artists explore a mode of subjectivity rooted in their own embeddedness in digital conditions of society. They formulate their artistic positions as participants of the contemporaneity that their practices deal with. Relying on immersion rather than narrative or conceptualized meaning constructions, they explore what it actually feels like to be present in our contemporary world and its temporal-sensorial conditions.

Following a trajectory of growing interest in affective experience across contemporary visual culture, the practical arts, and academia, perspectives in this panel will examine how contemporary art, afforded by digital technology, moves from a perspective on what is represented to us towards how we are present – and questions what conditions our sense of presence today. Our discussion will address human sensing as a both ontological and epistemological premise for art’s existence and experience: How do contemporary artists who engage digital culture and technology work with ideas of presence, affectivity, and immersion? What might artistic employment of digital tools and aesthetics implicate in ecological, digital-cultural, and technogenetic perspectives? What (if anything) is ‘new’ about artistic compositions of sense environments and experiences today, and how might art’s ‘new’ environments re-route art’s histories?

Keynote: Samson Young
3 Cases of Echoic Mimicry (Or, 3 Attempts at Hearing Outside of My Own F@#*&g Head)
Samson Young

On the occasion of RE:SOUND 2019, artist Samson Young will present a lecture-performance that centres on the concept of echoic mimicry from social psychology. Adopting artist Paul Carter’s understanding of it for cases of cross-cultural encounter, Young examines the concept with a case study of the genealogy of the ubiquitous Mo Li Hua [Jasmine Flower] song. The version we now understand to be synonymous with Chinese culture actually most closely resembles the version transcribed by English statesman John Barrow while on the first British embassy to China. Barrow’s tune and accompanying travelogue exploded in popularity across Europe, eventually made it back to its “native” land, before being reabsorbed into Chinese identity. With other cases of such encounters, including Kenny G’s influence on Hong Kong pop music and centuries-unchanged Japanese Togaku now used as one of few extant sources of Tang dynasty court music, Young considers what it means to hear with the ears of an Other and questions notions of cultural purity and authenticity at large.

Freedom Highway (2001-2004)
FREEDOM HIGHWAY is a transmission art work initially created from 2001-2004, which the artist is currently revisiting in the contemporary political and social climate. In the lead-up to the invation of Iraq (2002-2003), I made numerous road trips across the United States during which I recorded radio programming in the format known as talk radio. Talk radio in the US is heavily skewed towards the right wing; dominated by ultra- conservatives politically and evangelical Christians religiously. Since the 1990’s, the culture of talk radio has been at the vanguard of legitimizing and mainstreaming the ideological beliefs and policy priorities that now hold sway in the current US administration. In the present political moment, this normalization of vehement nativism and xenophobia seems increasingly overwhelming. This is why for the past two years I have been revisiting the work, which I first performed extensively in the US, Canada and Europe from 2004-2008. In North America, the roots of xenophobia and nativism run very deep. The widespread glorification of these destructive tendencies which we are witnessing today are not without precedent. Understanding the current episode in American public discourse and media requires a renewed examination of the politics of the spoken word. FREEDOM HIGHWAY is an audio composition constructed around a multi-voiced spoken narrative, composited from hundreds of speakers recorded in about twenty American states: right-wing call-in hosts, radio preachers, shock jocks and sports commentators as well as their guests and callers. Radio interference and static are also used extensively throughout the piece to create additional spaces besides the ones (radio studio and telephone) inherent in the programming itself. The resulting audio footage is then assembled into an audio performance and a gallery installation, a deeply troubling “audio self-portrait” of America as rendered by the nation’s political and religious radio broadcasters, and as overheard or intercepted by a listener who is not the intended audience of these broadcasts. FREEDOM HIGHWAY has been performed, broadcast, and exhibited in gallery installation form regularly since 2004. It has been heard in the US, Canada, and Europe.

Radiation Day (2017)
This is the metamorphosis of Earth being: in the desert, open-pit mines are encircled by monolithic tailings structures; boreholes and evaporation ponds spread across the salt flats, and pipelines and power lines run alongside roads punctuated by truck transports, garbage, and blowing dust. Copper, lithium, rare earths; mining the ingredients which conduct and power the wireless world. Ancient geoglyphic inscriptions on the desert are dwarfed by deep industrial scars visible from satellites. But environments are also media, and bodies are recording devices. For days under the sun at high altitudes in northern Chile, we sought elemental media amidst the industrial continuum. A performance devised of infrastructural sounds, atmospheric signals and live electronics with accompanying visual montage.

Panel: Conversation with Sound Art Curators
Conversation with Sound Art Curators
chaired by Liora Belford and Jason van Eyk

How have curators helped advance investigations into the production, positioning, exhibition and reception of what we call Sound Art? How has their treatment of a diverse array of sonic practices enriched our modes of inquiry and means of knowledge mobilization?

Track 5 Co-Chairs Liora Belford and Jason van Eyk invite a diverse group of international Sound Art curators for an open, moderated discussion to answer these questions. Together, they will explore the critical histories, positions and strategies that inform their practice.

Panelists include Barbara London–MoMA's media art curator emerita; Arnau Horta–Barcelona-based curator/critic/researcher and collaborator with MACBA and the Reina Sofia; Dr. Salomé Voegelin–artist, writer and un-curator engaged in curatorial performances, London College of Communication; and RE:SOUND conference chair Dr. Morten Søndergaard, Associate Professor and Curator/Creator of Interactive Media Art at Aalborg University.

Keynote: Salomé Voegelin
Sonic Materialism: A Philosophy of Digging and Gardening
Salomé Voegelin
 
This keynote as curatorial performance brings the heard and its audition into the sphere of things rather than into the context of their name and function. It joins a current debate on new materialism by developing via sound and listening the idea of materialism as a materialism of transformation that reconsiders an anthropocentric worldview without bestowing objects with mythical self-determination; and that accounts for the object’s autonomous agency rather than placing it in a mathematical frame. Thus, it involves an unperforming of the lexicon and of numbers, and practices a listening to the invisible by its intensity, expanse and duration, to hear echoes of responsibility and the vibrations of flesh in animate and inanimate things.

Listening to the soundscape, the voice and sonic works, this curatorial performance rethinks current ideas of speculative realism and new materialism via the in-between of things. It suggests that while a ‘masculine new materialism’ insists on the absence of the human to get to the unthought, and thus ultimately proposes the end of philosophy in its own mathematical probability, a ‘sonico-feminine new materialism’ brings us through the creative performance of matter and language to the seemingly unthinkable, to reperform it not in words but on the body and on things: doing, digging, gardening as a revocalization and rephysicalization of theory through its interbeing with things.

Exile and Other Syndromes (2019)
The generative composition Exile and Other Syndromes is part of an augmented book project that responds to the current indisposition of migration, mobility, placeless-ness and nomadism, which are the impulses of a contemporary condition that eventually blurs the boundaries between the local and the global, the digital and the corporeal, the private and the public, or the intimate and the dehumanizing spaces, instilling a sense of semantic fatigue. The composition aims to transmute the contemporary city’s volatile, oppressing and tensed environments to encourage the contemplation and poetic musing of the listener navigating the intercepting urban spaces. The work develops fluid sculptural form of sound in a closely mediated interaction with sound-generated text patterns framing the contemplation of a nomadic listener as an artifact using an AI algorithm to read and transform the book’s content into live visuals. The performance of the work incorporates multichannel live projection of the visuals on multiple screens augmented with multi-channel sound. This specific method of artistic intervention examines the way memory, imagination and subjectivity of an itinerant listener frames the character of sound in the context of intensified urban interaction, mobility and nomadism.

Quantified Failure (2016)
In this 20 minute spoken record, Barkun recite all the medications, medical appointments and intimate measurements taken day-to-day during my fifth and final cycle of in vitro fertilization, which lasted 56 days. This diary uses voice to activate memory, as reading the list becomes a vehicle of translation for my multilayered experience. At times Barkun trip or stutter over scientific names of medications; these linguistic difficulties reflect my attempts to surmount all the foreign substances injected and ingested during the protocol. My body becomes increasingly medicalized for procreative means and in the end is confirmed as a dysfunctional space; the artwork ends with the thud of the final result: “zero embryos”. Her reproductive and medical failure is measured, calculated, and put on display. This speaking of her corporeal failure is a conscious act of resistance against the taboo of infertility, the veneration of science, and the normative voices of Western society.

Language of Life (2019)
The “Language of Life” composition is an original electronic music score which incorporates the sonification of the molecular wave dynamics of proteins. The Eigenprot protein synthesizer, developed at MIT by Zhao Qin and Markus Buehler, will be mixed with other electronic sounds produced from various synthesizers and modular effects generators. The goal is to provide the listener with a musical expression that represents the creation of life represented by all the information that is communicated with the unique wave dynamics of protein creation so as to give the audience an experience of the creative vibrations which exist in the universe. Our technology and understanding has reached a level whereby we can now create with the basic building blocks of nature which affects our consciousness and is part of our consciousness within the universe.

Ether Ship is a multimedia space performance group created by Willard Van De Bogart in the late 1960s in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, with partner and cofounder Michael Lemon DeGeorge. They took an experimental approach to live entertainment—a live performing lab of image and sound, utilizing then-exotic technologies of expressive physical constructs, laser shows, video art, and light-form art; while playing live electronic synthesizers with radically altered instruments from mouth harp to Hammond organ, electronic cello, and classical screwdriver guitar.

Panel: Art & Industry Collaborations within Sound Art Practices
Panel: Art & Industry Collaborations within Sound Art Practices

Struer Tracks is developed within a framework of collaborations between Struer Municipality, Bang & Olufsen and local cultural institutions. While exploring the benefits of collaborations between art and industry the initiative also maps and revisits a territory well known in the history of media art: a landscape of mixed value systems weaving commercial, ethical, artistic and innovative values.

The panel takes as a starting point four project presentations within sound art practices and initiates a discussion on different models for art and industry collaborations. Christian Skjødt and Ursula Nistrup are both involved in projects developed in close collaboration with Bang & Olufsen and presented at Struer Tracks #2. Christer Lundahl, part of Lundahl & Seitl has been involved in several art and industry projects, and Rune Søchting is presently involved in a collaboration with Oticon.

Double Take (2009)
Catherine Bernard (CA) will introduce the screening of the acclaimed film director Johan Grimonprez, Double Take.

Double Take casts Alfred Hitchcock as a paranoid history professor, unwittingly caught up in a double take on the cold war period. The master says all the wrong things at all the wrong times while politicians on both sides desperately clamor to say the right things, live on TV. Double Take targets the global rise of ‘fear-as-a-commodity’, in a tale of odd couples and hilarious double deals. As television hijacks cinema, and the Khrushchev and Nixon kitchen debate rattles on, sexual politics quietly take off and Alfred himself emerges in a dandy new role on the TV, blackmailing housewives with brands they can't refuse. Award winning novelist Tom McCarthy (‘C’, ‘Remainder’, ‘Tintin and the Secret of Literature’) writes a plot of personal paranoia to mirror the political intrigue in which Hitchcock and his elusive double increasingly obsess over the perfect murder – of each other! Subverting a meticulous array of TV footage, Grimonprez traces catastrophe culture's relentless assault on the home, from the inception of televised images to our present day zapping neurosis.

There will be a Q&A after the film.

SKIN II (2018)
SKINN II is an interactive audiovisual performance using biomedical signals. In this new version of the performance SKIN created in 2014, the artist incorporates new sonic elements (recording fields) and algorithmic sound treatment creating a more complex composition. As in the former version, the artist interacts with sounds and images using a GSR (Galvanic Skin Response) interface, which measures her skin's moisture in order to transform the audiovisual environment. The variations of these values are an indication of psychological or physiological arousal, such as for example appearance of stress or relaxation. The visual environment is created by microscopic images from the performer's skin recorded in real-time and the entire performance is inspired by the natural skin shedding process.

Keynote: Marie Højlund
An Attuning Approach to Sound Art and Design in Public Spaces
Marie Højlund

Working with sonic interaction design and sound art in various public spaces call for an ecological and enactive methodology entailing investigations of actors and their interrelations with their respective environments as attuning and explorative agents. Based on my Ph.D. project on sound in Danish Hospitals (2017) I have thus developed a (dark) attuning approach as a methodological framework capable of accommodating both the multisensory atmosphere and the active engagement of the enactive user through practice-based experiments. In the keynote, I wish to explore and develop this approach through my previous projects engaging a gigantic wind-mill controlling the tempo of music throughout 2018 in the project Nephew vs. Overheard, imagining the sound world of a woman turning blind through interactive sound design for Dancer in the Dark at Aarhus Theatre and placing a range of sound installations around Denmark mixed together through audio satellites on a website throughout 2017 in the project The Overheard.

Keynote: Christoph Cox
Matter, Flow, Sound, Politics
Christoph Cox

In this talk, I present an overview of sonic materialism and foreground its political dimension. I contrast this materialist position with alternative positions such as object-oriented ontology and prominent versions of poststructuralism. Sonic materialism, I argue, necessitates attention to several spatio-temporal scales, from the cosmic scale to the scale of individual actions and events. Along the way, I develop four claims: (1) the materialist claim that matter has temporal and ontological priority over mind and culture, (2) that materialism requires a theory of flows, (3) that artistic technologies—photography, phonography, radio, film—amount to various ways of cutting into (or “sampling” from) material flows, and (4) that politics concerns the forces that capture or harness these flows.
