• Errant Bodies book OUT NOW!

Grounds for possible music, Errant BodiesGender, voice, language, and identity are four important notions for musical creation, for the shaping of a canon, and for the interactions in the field. All four notions are strongly contextual and carry an inherent sense of paradigm and otherness. Other and self are defined via orientation and history, expressed via voice, and confirmed in language.

In this publication, these four core notions serve as a set of lenses permitting different perspectives on one another. However much the field of the sounding arts might pretend to be tangential to such affections, they provide important grounds for musical creation.

Some twenty artists, including myself, have created a variety of outputs – as different in form, strategies, approach, and language, as they are rooted in a variety of sub-fields within the sounding arts.

GROUNDS FOR POSSIBLE MUSIC is edited by Julia Eckhardt/Q-02 (Brussels), published by Errant Bodies Press (Berlin).

• Stereophonic in(ter)ventions

Some geeky impressions from my artistic residency at Gaudeamus and Muziekhuis in Utrecht. Preparing the technical part of a new radio phonic live performance commissioned by Gaudeamus Muziekweek, to be premiered by ensemble But What About upcoming September 2018. Now, together with Ruud van Kluten re-discovering several historical speaker and headphone stereophony possibilities. Most of it is a loud and clear re confirmation of the tremendously deep ‘power of sound’.
