Christina Kubisch is one of the most celebrated sound artists working today. After studying painting, music and electronics, her sound sculptures, installations and electroacoustic compositions became widely known in the 1970's, leading to diverse and ongoing acclaim - she has exhibited on every continent (including at MOMA, the Centre Pompidou and Tate Modern), and her work has featured in festivals and groups shows such as Pro Musica Nova (Bremen), Venice Biennale, Ars Electronica (Linz), Her Noise (London), B!AS International Sound Art Exhibition (Taipei), Stockholm New Music, Soni(c)loud (Mexico), and Blurred Edges Festival (Hamburg). Her music has been released by Cramps Records, Edition RZ, Ampersand, Die Schachtel and other labels, and she has held academic posts in Maastricht, Paris, Berlin and Saarbrucken.
Christina's session will focus on creating a finished work connecting sound and space, based on sound material recorded in situ. Hydrophones, electromagnetic research and contact microphones will be used to discover hidden sound worlds, exploring the rivers, waterfalls, springs, spa sources and other "humid" places in and around the village. The resulting acoustic research will be shaped to form audio compositions, sound sculptures and site-specific installations. Participants will work alone and in groups towards a final presentation, which will either be installed for exhibition at Fuse Art Space and across our network of partners, or will receive a full release on our in-house label, depending on the type of work produced (composition, installation, etc).
Outdoor work, exploring the hidden sound worlds of the area, will be combined with evening listening sessions in our multi-channel listening environments, and editing and production work in our state of the art Pro Tools studios.
