WORKSHOP 3pm – 7pm
Saturday 10th December 3-10pm
>top Schillerpalais, Schillerpromenade 4, 12049 Berlin
Rama Bielewski and Marco Schröder invite you to explore sounds, the city is offering us with it´s surfaces. ‘All the Resonating Objects’ will give you the opportunity to use simple tools to generate self sustaining sound installations. Participants will be introduced to use feedback-systems for live composing.
In this workshop materials and objects will be tested and analysed for their physical properties according to sound. This can be a handy way for interesting sound synthesis but at the same time it is a good method for producing quite complex patterns and behaviours. Working with feedback is very delicate and sometimes difficult. Touching the objects, slightly changing their position and connections may have major effects on the feedback and resonances produced.
By strolling through the city we will find plenty of objects and materials that we can use for spontaneous sound experiments. Participants should also bring their own materials, objects, surfaces (like glasses, jars etc.), for using them. The aim of the workshop is to set up a network of resonating objects (aka a proper sound installation). We will provide all the necessary hardware like DIY mini amplifiers, transducers and contact microphones to work with.
The workshop starts at 15h until around 19h, so that we will have enough time to come up with some interesting auto-poetic sound structures.
If you would like to participate send us an email:

Registration will end on Thursday the 8th of December
At 20h, Marco Schröder will perform a closing live jam, using generative computer processes, different objects and contact microphones. His sound excursions spanning between ambient meditation, drones and abstract noise. www.soundcloud.com/item
Rama Bielewski is studying Media Art and Design at the Bauhaus University Weimar. His work deals with matters of sense perception in the context of interfaces between human, machine and nature. He creates interfaces that allow us new experiences of our environment. He often uses sound and the modeling of sound as a medium for interaction within his installations. www.vimeo.com/ramabielewski
Marco Schröder studied philosophy and musicology at the University of Cologne. Currently he is finishing his master studies in Media Art and Design at the Bauhaus University Weimar. His major interests are philosophy of science and aesthetics. He is working around experimental sound design with live improvisations, generative composition and sound installations. www.spekulativegesellschaft.org
The event is supported by the Media Environments Chair (Prof. Ursula Damm) and the Kreativfonds Bauhaus Universität Weimar. Curated by Mindaugas Gapsevicius.
