Son[i]a #49

As part of the 11th LEM International Festival, the Barcelona group ALKU presents the project “Less-Lethal, vol. 1”, a highly personal exploration of the use of sound and music as a non-lethal weapon. This anthology, designed to be 100% educational, features works by such sound artists as Francisco López, Weasel Walter, Dave Phillips, Justice Yeldham, Zbigniew Karkowski and Powerbooks for Peace, amongst others.

Using a conference format, the project retrospectively reconstructs the way sound has been used as a non-lethal weapon, whilst also reflecting on psychological conditioning factors, the effects of Muzak and the bastardisation of pop music as an integral part of armed conflicts today.

This SON[I]A talks with editors Anna Ramos and Roc Jiménez de Cisneros, the driving force behind this project.

EVOL
more

Roc Jiménez de Cisneros talks about EVOL’s very free deconstruction and reinterpretation of György Ligeti's 'Continuum' and Hanne Darboven’s 'Opus 17A', and how these works relate to the duo's current artistic practice. Unusual notions of time in relation to music, algorithmic reverse engineering, complexity through simplicity, anti-climax, ancient trance music, weird mental states and Dick Higgins’ Superboredom concept pop up in the conversation.
