Prácticas Contemporáneas IV  (December 2018)

Prácticas Contemporáneas is an encounter created by AADK Spain to analyze the models of production in contemporary art. It is a space for knowledge exchange and in which to promote new networks. Each year, professionals from different backgrounds and sectors – the public, the private and the independent – are invited in order to continue expanding the circuits for our artists in Europe. This edition focuses on sound performance and the creation of communities.

Communities around sound
The project seeks to generate community by collective creation and facilitate transformative experiences through sound.
In this edition, PC brings together experts in performance and sound art, as well as promoting the encounter between different communities -artistic and local. With this program, we are seeking to make visible other educational, creation and production of sound art that AADK has generated, locally, nationally and internationally.

Not a Master. Specialized Course in Experimental Music and Sound Art -Module 4-

Module 4 (Experimental Organology) of our: “This is Not a Sound Art Master”

In the next module of the “No Master -Specialized course for experimental music and Sound Art”, we will go through an authentic creative storm. Inventing instruments is not just to produce them but, through the building process, to form an implicit imagining of the sound that we aspire to transmit; an imagining of the speech that the ear senses in real-time. They suggest an intensive way of being played, to try to find inside them the vibrations of the inaudible.

From 3rd to 8th December 2018 Blanca, Murcia.

The fee of the module is 180 € and includes:
– Classes (48 hours)
– MATERIALS
– Curatorial Tutoring (12 hours)
– 7 days of accommodation in Blanca, Murcia.
