Reverb at Lopez Museum


Reverb
(Lopez Museum, September 12, 2011-April 3, 2012)
Lopez Museum exhibit opens Sept 14.
Mall Of Asia exhibit opens Sept 15
.




What does a museum sound like?

Apart from the gustatory and olfactory, the aural sense is possibly the least serviced among all the human sensory channels through which we experience what gets shown in museums and other spaces tending to human sensation. And so it was in keeping with the idea of venturing forth into mostly untrodden paths that Lopez Museum presents Reverb, a group exhibition on sound and the broad auditory spectrum as it opens to the public September 12, 2011. Reverb is the museum’s onsite offering for the Zero In museum consortium’s Open Call Festival which runs from September 15-24, 2011 at the SM Mall of Asia Atrium.

Reverb takes off from notions having to do with resonance, registration, and audible impressions. It brings together sound-based work from artists such as Eric Ambata, Kawayan de Guia, Tad Ermitaño, IC Jaucian, Diokno Pasilan, Ronald Tomas, the collaborative, E.X.I.S.T. (Experimentation in Sound Art Tradition), and UP College of Music ethnomusicologist Dr. Christine Muyco. In responding to Lopez Museum’s open call for sound-based proposals last year, these artists will be showing an amalgam of old and new works drawn up from the ambient and self-produced, the installative and site-specific, the found and the overlooked, alongside objects from the museum collection that invoke hearing and an overall sharpening of the experiential aspect of encountering art.

Reverb’s off-site component at the SM MOA Atrium will encourage mallers to physically engage with everyday objects such as air mattresses, and surrounding foliage. Live performances from these invited artists will make up both Reverb’s onsite and off-site complements which are also intended to emphasize the temporal and intangible nature of sound art.

The Lopez Museum is at the ground floor, Benpres Building, Exchange Road corner Meralco Avenue, Pasig City. Museum days and hours are Mondays-Saturdays, 8am-5pm,except holidays. You may reach the museum through telephone Numbers: 6312417/6359545.

World Listening Day 2011 (Cavite, Philippines)

.

(click image to enlarge)




World Listening Day 2011 (Cavite, Philippines)
-------------------------------
17 July 2011 (Sunday)
-------------------------------
Mini-Amphitheater, Balite Falls,
Brgy. Halang, Amadeo Cavite, Philippines
-------------------------------
2pm - 5pm
-------------------------------
RSVP: erickcalilan@yahoo.com





ABOUT:



World Listening Day is an annual global call to celebrate the practice of listening and field recording by means of participating or organizing of any of these activities:

• organize a soundwalk or a listening party when people play field recordings
• organize a performance event that involves field recordings and other artistic expressions that explore our soundscape and how we can listen to our sonic environment
• participate in a private / solitary way, by paying attention to your soundscape
• facilitate an educational event that relates to acoustic ecology, field recordings, or a similar topic
• contact organizations that are participating in World Listening Day, to see if you can get involved that way


July 18 was chosen as the official date for World Listening Day (but not limited to this date only) because it is the birthday of the Canadian composer R. Murray Schafer, who is one of the founders of the Acoustic Ecology movement -- soundscape studies that “find solutions for an ecologically balanced soundscape where the relationship between the human community and its sonic environment is in harmony” (World Soundscape Project).


World Listening Day is co-organized by the World Listening Project (WLP), a not-for-profit organization devoted to understanding the world and its natural environment, societies and cultures through the practices of listening and field recording; and Midwest Society for Acoustic Ecology (MSAE), a membership organization dedicated to exploring the role of sound in natural habitats and human societies, and promoting public dialogue concerning the identification, preservation, and restoration of natural and cultural sound environments.


In response to the open call, E.X.I.S.T. (EXperimentation In Sound art Tradition) will be participating this year’s World Listening Day by organizing a performance event that will feature selected artists whose work marks an important creative application on the practice of Field Recording and Phonography. It will consist of live performances of field recording materials and an informal presentation about Acoustic Ecology. Also, with the purpose of establishing an exchange of ideas, the event will be open to informative and meaningful discussion.



The event would be purposely held in an open-air venue to aesthetically/conceptually​ blend the performances with the outdoor environment. Although July 18 is the official date of World Listening Day, the event (Cavite, Philippines) would be set on Sunday, July 17.

He developed a project around the sound under the name of ieva and started to compose music like imaginary journey or short stories. Since 2 years ago he started to practice improvisation multicast using multi layered field recordings that are overlayed creating an intense and emotionally universe that you pass through as a waking dream, like a cinema for ear. He also directed several experimental films. After an initial approach, abstract and sensitive, playing on the body of the digital image (pixelization, compression). He developed his approach in films more figurative combining diary and man's relationship to nature. (*courtesy of Sabaw Media Art Kitchen)
