Are we capable of driving the vehicle of democracy?

Robots is an online sound experience, in which discussions and decision-making among participants shall influence the course of the experience. We shall question the nature of human and artificial beings, as well as the rights of expressing one's views and decisions for the collective, through a classic play "R.U.R". Individuals' actions shall have an effect and consequence towards themselves, as well as the collective. How does the collision of opinion between yours and the group sound to you? How could the value of collective decision be told by sonic experience?

___

Chung Tat Sham and Hou Lam Wu are seeking 8 participants for the decision-making process in this story-telling and sound experience. One participant, Mau, will be streaming his experience live on twitch for the broader community to see and hear how it plays out. Check it out at: https://www.twitch.tv/udkberlin_sounds

If you want to be part of the decision-making process (via Web-Ex) email [email protected] and the artists will email the details of the experience before the show starts. Please note your participation in this Web-Ex call will then be a part of the stream.

OTIUM 11 | Panel discussion
'What is the nature of psychiatric auditory experience'

March 9 TUESDAY 6:00PM

https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJUpdumrpjgrGdIRbjF99XWqzdNOs4cc7xUU

⭐️Zoom waiting room will open at 5:30PM and the event starts at 6:00PM⭐️

“Listening to the world is not an innate,universal capacity, the logical result of ears encountering sound waves. Rather, it is something we learn how to do, and we learn how to listen in an environment that is already shaped by and coursing with power.” - J. Martin Daughtry, 2015

A sound’s salience and emotional charge depends upon the life histories of the people who hear it, and upon the comparative backdrop against which they listen to the sounds that are emplaced in a particular time and location. As starting point of an attempt to find new vocabularies, new theoretical models and new arguments about listening in general as well as about psychiatric institutions, Kim Wichera will be asking a range of panelists who work in psychiatric institutions or who have been users of these services:
• How they have been identifying sounds, interpreting their significance, and mapping them onto their knowledge of the institution
• Who influences the act of listening in the psychiatric system?
• Who is responsible for sounding in the psychiatric system?
• How is the environment designed and built to affect sound?
• Which objects mediate sound for listeners?

_____

This online panel will be moderated by Kim Wichera: a sound artist and activist based in Berlin, Germany. Kim works at the runaway house "Villa Stöckle", an anti-psychiatric institution and are co-editor of books on psychiatric critique.

The discussion will feature the following panelists:
Karin Jervert
(She/Her)
something-wonderful.net
Labeled Bipolar at 21, Jervert identifies as a psychiatric survivor. She is an artist and author working on a memoir exploring the medicalization of suffering and the parallel loss of language around emotional pain. Her work focuses on the transformation of trauma, normalization of suffering and empowerment through art-making. Jervert currently works for Mad in America.

Dr. Tom Rice is a Senior Lecturer in Anthropology at the University of Exeter in the UK. His special interest is in sound. Tom's monograph, Hearing and the Hospital, is an ethnographic study of the auditory culture of a London hospital and he has since written about the sound cultures of other institutions such as prisons and, most recently, zoos. He also makes documentaries about sound for radio.

Dr. Kristina Eichel is a researcher, systemic psychotherapist in training and s*x counsellor in Berlin. Kris’ research topics include critical perspectives on meditation, mindfulness, and empathy. In February, Kris finished a one year internship in the acute
inpatient ward. Kris is working on a graphic novel about pelvic pain and engaging in feminist and antiracist climate/ecojustice activism.

Kristel Jax works in music as Brigitte Bardon’t, a multifaceted sound project including Drone Therapy, where drone music tracks comedic, sincere explorations of mental illness in a podcast and live, where Jax plays “drone therapist.” Kristel runs Instagram mental health meme account @dyingbutfine, crowdfunds her therapy via Patreon, and lives in Toronto with her mini pug, Lana.

OTIUM 10 l EKHEO
‘Voyage Voyage’

March 5 FRIDAY 6:30PM
🔊 twitch.tv/udkberlin_sounds

“Voyage Voyage” is a personal journey into the hidden parts of oneself. Based on C.G. Jung's theories, EKHEO and Rodger Brown use the space as a metaphor of the human’s psyche. In this work one can access the unknown, the shadow laying within by means of sound and vision.

It is an invitation of a journey into not yet integrated parts. Here one encounters the dark, repressed and hidden sides of the self. One can feel fascinated, attracted and threatened by its appearances: it is mysterious, frightening, calm, healing, chaotic, intense, masculine and feminine at the same time.

“True, whoever looks into the mirror of the water will see first of all his own face. Whoever goes to himself risks a confrontation with himself. . . . The meeting with oneself is, at first, the meeting with one’s own shadow. The shadow is a tight passage, a narrow door, whose painful constriction no one is spared who goes down to the deep well. But one must learn to know oneself in order to know who one is.” (Carl Jung, Archetypes of the Collective Unconscious, CW 9, §§ 43–52).

In order to convey this ambivalence, EKHEO create a sonic and visual environment. Sounds and visuals combine and create an invitation to dive into these themes through the visual and aural senses.

Aude Langlois and Belinda Sykora founded the artist duet *Ekheo* in 2016 during their master's degree in "Sound Studies" at UdK Berlin.Their interdisciplinary work about the voice includes artistic research in the field of auditory culture, performance, radio art and experimental music.

*Aude Langlois* is a composer, musician and sound artist from France, working with different sound sources that she removes from their context and combines with her own voice. She creates textural compositions. After her bachelor studies in "Music and Musicology" in Paris-Sorbonne (FR), she completed her master studies in "Sound Studies" at the UdK in Berlin. Her work fuses music, sound design and technology in an organic way.

After *Belinda Sykora* finished her acting studies in 2008 she moved to Berlin and devoted herself more to her musical talent. Her interest lay in experimental music, she founded a band for which she composed and sang. In 2018 she completed her Master in "Sound Studies" at the UdK Berlin. Her works deal with language and sound in an interdisciplinary way, using different technical means to play with the perception of the recipients. These include binaural sound walks, sound installations, radio plays and performances.

*Rodger Brown* is a Jamaican born, New York City raised artist, currently based in Berlin. He is a multimedia artist combining abstract portrait photography, mixed media collage, installation, and video work. His work explores the unconscious, and the role that it plays in conjunction with environmental and philosophical influences in our personal understanding of reality. He has shown work in New York City and Berlin.

SoundsAbout Project Space

Sound informs us of the space around us. At the same time, sound constitutes space. In sound art, we understand space as a parameter of artistic creation. Architecture becomes fluid, musical forms seem to have sculptural qualities.

SoundsAbout is a collaboration between the Master’s program Sound Studies and Sonic Arts at the University Berlin and the gallery Zwitschermaschine, offering a project space to present and discuss, question and celebrate the work and ideas of our students and their guests for three months every year.

Think with your ears. Make listening your culture.
