Sonic meditation XIX (Pauline Oliveiros, 1971) Deep listening and tuning in to one self and one’s environment.

Solo: a little story(2016-2020) Little acoustic stories developed through my listening to the world and collecting noises.

Breath (2019) The soft sound of breathing unfolds, spreads, travels and mixes with the wind.

Floating moment (2019) A moment in time is narrated through a precise written descripton of sonic and visual events, thus becoming a score that can be reproduced in musical form.

Approchoaches and Departure – Appearance and Disappearances (Pauline Oliveros 1994) The score provides each performer with a strategy for approaching or departing from a pitch of his or her own chosing.

Marie Cécile Reber

Swiss composer Marie-Cécile Reber  works with field recording and electronic instruments to transform unusual and imperceptible sounds, mostly of Nature (insects, frogs, ants or worms) into pictorial soundscapes, live performances and site specific installations. At the heart of Reber’s working methods lies the subtle border between concrete noise and musical sounds, natural rhythms and composed ones. concert series

a collaboration between bookRoom and the Audio Research Cluster at UCA Farnham, curated by Emmanuelle Waeckerlé and Harry Whalley, around their common research in extended, textual, visual, gestural and object scores and ways to integrate or experience technology in text / music / film / performances. The project is supported by UCA research fund.
