about

* AN ODD COLLECTION OF SOUND WORKS FOR EVEN ODDER TIMES *

Every event of planetary dimensions generates a new perceived time axis: a collectively perceived "before-during-after relation", shared at a global scale. If “before” means what most of the world has obliviously come to consider as normality; and “during” refers to the current situation of confinement, de-confinement or re-confinement (depending on the context); “after” still insists, maybe more than ever, in presenting itself as an absolute enigma, open to infinite new speculations, anxieties and expectations.

How does this new perceived time axis affect our ways of listening? How does it affect the ways in which we create? How can fields such as sound art and acoustic ecology generate reflection about the new anxieties and expectations introduced by such uncertainty? And how are sound artists across the globe responding to emerging limitations and challenges?

Commissioned by the Aveiro Municipality via Teatro Aveirense within the context of the "Culture in Times of (un)Certainty” municipal strategy, "New Chronologies of Sound" proposes to generate debate on such issues by developing a collection of sound works based on field recordings, which reflect upon those matters. The artistic research project gathers artists and researchers from all over the globe, encompassing a broad diversity of aesthetics, geographies, processual latitudes and conceptual attitudes, which range from pure field recordings and processed soundscapes down to more musical or compositional uses of found sounds.

Furthermore, through the support of Direcção Geral das Artes and the partnerships established with organisations such as MAMM, INET-md, GrETUA, MUSA or AEJE, the original project has branched out into other promising courses, such as an exhibition taking place at the Museum of Modern Art of Medellín, Colombia; the "Negative Mass" free sound bank, comprised of samples and recordings used by the participant artists to compose their sound works; and the "A Collection of Whispers" selection of essays, which debate, from a sonic perspective, the emergence of a new perceived time axis due to the global pandemic landscape.
