Tartu Artists Union Gallery (Vanemuise 26, Tartu) at 7pm
Transmissions in Sound: an evening of remote listening with Jim Haynes, Dawn Scarfe and Rostislav Rekuta
Moderated by Taavi Suisalu
Part of the public outreach program of the Active Crossover residency at MoKS, curated by Simon Whetham.
In recent years, artists who work with sound have been confronted by the blanket term “sound art”, which like term “visual art” risks allowing its audiences and even practitioners, to overlook the diverse approaches which inform and enhance individual creative practice. For this MoKS Meeting we will focus on the notion of ‘transmission’ in the displacement of sound from one place to another through various media such as radio, internet and recordings from the field. Through experiencing works-in-progress, the aim is to encourage a dialogue with our guests whose range of backgrounds is as unique as their approach in order to understand the constant challenges of bridging ideas with the ears of audiences.
