Mapping out the Sonic Unconscious: Discussion and Sound Works emerging from the search for the sonic unconscious. Part of Petra Klusmeyer's OPEN PROCESS series at Dartington Gallery, University College Falmouth, Dartington Campus.
with participation from Ariane Delaunois, David Strang, Joe Scarffe, Rosalind Holgate Smith, Sebastian Hau Walker.
Hosted by David Strang's Surface Sound Series on Soundart Radio.
As part of the OPEN PROCESS series at Dartington Gallery, University College Falmouth, Dartington Campus, Petra Klusmeyer sets out to investigates questions in regard to auditory and psychological aspects of spatiality. What is the relationship between sound, space and memory? How does sound influence the perception and representation of space, and how can we transcribe auditory memory in ways which interpret individual perspectives and meanings and hereby draw-out the sonic unconscious?
Participants were invited to develop strategies to translate the auditory experience into the gallery space either indiviually or collectively. The focus of this artistic experiment does not lie on sound production and composition; the aim lies on the convergence between sound and artistic practices, i.e., writing, installation, performance to conjure up a topology of unconscious knowing.
