Thüringen: Saalfeld, Suhl, Nordhausen. Während der Wanderausstellung “Kein schöner _ _ _ _ in dieser Zeit” sind meine Residenzpflichtarbeiten zu sehen, das Video “Zaunmusik” und die fünf Klangarbeiten “Euterpe”. 20.9.-17.10.2022 www.indieserzeit.de
heute auf Deutschlandfunk Kultur in der Sendung Tonart Klang einer Geflüchtetenunterkunft: Residenzpflicht für Klangkünstler Jorn Ebner von Kai Adler. DANKE!
Der letzte Tag. Die Kinder fragen, wann ich denn gehen würde und verabschieden sich lange bevor die 17:00 Uhr-Veranstaltung beginnt. Sommerfest, die Kinder spielen und freuen sich. Erwachsene sind nur wenige zu sehen.
Today, I had radio visitors. Deutschlandfunk and fellow public art artists radioconnection conducted interviews to be broadcast next week (Deutschlandfunk Kultur) and beyond (radioconnection). Thank you Ricarda for helping out with the projector and display issues: tomorrow is the final day. Speeches and presentations. The rain kept me and most of everyone else indoors
Back in Hellersdorf, Covid goodbye.
The Covid couple are an unpleasant item. I try to get away from them and continue my sound and video edits, but they keep interrupting me. Work in half speed and slo-mo at the same time. Listening to the sounds from Albert-Kuntz-Straße creates a strange shift of experience and memory. Both fall into place as […]
Started filming but noticed something wasn’t quite right. Mr. and Mrs. Covid had come to pay me a visit, unnoticed. Feeling rotten. Back at my place in isolation. Maybe the crows attacked me yesterday, because I was wearing a brownish red shirt that has the colour of foxes. In a way
unbearable heat makes work impossible. A hike to the local supermarket on Risaer Str. A couple of crows called violently, hopping from one branch or tree to another. I stopped to look, which seemed to make them even angrier. After proceeding to walk, one of them, almost ambushed me, flying narrowly over my head.
In the morning, before the heat kicked in, beautiful song and drumming from an upstairs window.
Drawing on pre-fab Masks today. Forgot to record the noise.
Lacklustre. The plan was to set a mask-making session in the afternoon, but the heat is wearing me down. The Medicare bus is blocking the assigned space. Maybe later. Painted test mask seems to look sad. Is this reflecting my metal frame? The kids playing noisily seem happy and excited; no sadness there. The main […]
msk7 came by in the evening to chat about the project, issues around the portable cabin and my hosts. Kids keen on joining in. There will be photographs.
Sewing the top of my crow costume, gluing bits for a mask, of sorts. Also: paper masks for use later during the stay, and pre-fab masks purchased online had arrived the day before. Project progress evens out security staff grumpiness. and: Johanna Treblin’s newsletter from Marzahn/Hellersdorf for Tagesspiegel (photographs by Joana Nietfeld),
Rain comes dripping in, – later a drumming of rain on my roof and against the window for the happy recordist. not to forget: Tagesspiegel online only report on my “residenzpflicht” project, written by Johanna Treblin, with photos by Joana Nietfeld, thank you!
During the early hours, the crows were trampling on my roof. The sound recorder not within reach, the visitors weren’t staying long.
First week has rushed by, making plenty of new aquaintances (kids mostly). Recorded playing the public furniture, playground features (slide, play house) and lampposts in the shelter. Some have a beautiful sonic quality. I wonder whether a participatory work is necessarily a productive way forward. Tagesspiegel photographer arrives in the afternoon, taking amongst others, images […]
My new friends ushered me to create a thumb cinema book. Visit to an art venue Station Urbaner Kulturen and the local library. Ideas drift towards other areas of sonic articulation. Sounds of morning, evening and night.
Journey from the centre of the city to the periphery. Albert Kuntz really is a long way out, cycling via Biesdorf. Sounds of morning and evening.
Southbound to Risaer Straße. Bienenlehrpfad, beautiful brown little Italian bees, too. Walked all the important supermarkets now. Surprise visit from Tagesspiegel journalist in the afternoon. Sounds of morning, evening and night.
towards the west Explorations to the periphery of the periphery. Walks to Helle Mitte in search for Asian markets. Sounds of morning, midday, afternoon and evening.
afternoon soundscape, the noise of children towards the east Explorations in the centre of the periphery. Walks from Albert Kuntz through the greenscape to Hönow and Hoppegarten Sounds of the evening.
@patricktimm, many thanks for the lovely welcome card.
