About the Event
"I'll be playing a short multi-channel piece composed by field recordings part of a documentary film I did sound design and music: "The Invention Of The Other " (2022 - directed by Bruno Jorge) - A record of an attempt to contact the Korubo, a remote indigenous tribe that occupies territory deep inside the Amazonian rainforest."
Bruno Palazzo (b. 1981) lives and works in São Paul, Brazil.
Film composer, sound designer and Visual artist, part of his narrative is sound, memories - sonorous, physical and subjective - investigating the possibility of a unified aesthetic.
He has played guitar with Cão since 2010, and his first solo album "Década" (2021), released by BRAVA, is composed by field recording, guitar, synths and drum machines.
Daniel Neumann will present pieces from the earlier workshop::
"Live diffusion in its basic form means taking a preexisting stereo track, duplicating it to 8 faders on a mixing board and then using those faders to send the signal dynamically to 8 loudspeakers that are spread around the room. This technique was first established by the community of French composers around the Acousmonium and musique concrète. (The Germans called it sound projection.) : Anyhow, the workshop will result in a group presentation for which we will collectively develop a larger overall structure as part of the activities. For this development we’ll experimentally use concepts of Decentering (taking on multitudes of perspectives; the ability to consider multiple aspects of a situation; any of a variety of techniques aimed at changing one’s centered thinking to openminded thinking)."
The CT::SWaM Plasticity Office is a sound installation and temporary spatial sound studio inside Fridman Gallery’s office/showroom, designed by sound engineer/artist Daniel Neumann. The installation-system will feature a rotation of performers who will be activating it as a space for events, presentations, workshops, experiments, talks, discussions, etc. The recordings of these activations will get integrated into the regular, daytime installation as added content, which will accumulate and change over the run of the show.
