Concert Segment to Audience Bodies - Band Klank.ist
Time & Location
About the Event
Klank.ist presents installations and performances as a result of this research oriented towards the facets of Public movement and opinion in response to sonic impulses both overt and covert.
Prompted by Nigel Thrift's non-representative affect theory wherein performance is explicated not in discursive forms but in the traces that they leave in the body, and the body politic, Klank.ist set out to change the improvised music format, from the reverse, audience side. In "The Meaning of the Body" Mark Johnson maintains "It [is] an important step to probe below concepts, propositions, and sentences into the sensorimotor processes by which we understand our world, but what is now needed is a far deeper exploration into the qualities, feelings, emotions and bodily processes that make meaning possible." Klank.ist found such a probing only possible in a seeking a public that responded immediately to sound for this constant drive to the process of translation and transcription that the search for meaning requires in a constantly moving public, an audience of bodies that not only hear, but immediately respond.
In addition soundscape compositions of the members featuring outsider perspectives of Berlin with the theme of power relations of the everyday will be a feature.
