reverse, return, regenerate – selected audio works

7 June 2021 @ 16:00 - 17:00 EEST

reverse, return, regenerate is a collection of selected audio works for Pixelache Festival 2021, curated by festival co-director Laura Gustafsson:

I will not pretend to understand how the hyperspectral images of soil in Anne Yoncha’s project Re:Peat are actually converted into sound. There are two sonified soil samples, from Latvasuo and Pikkusaarisuo peat extraction sites, the unrestored soil sample is panned left, and panned right is the restored (one that’s been de-acidified with the ashes of burnt peat). The podcast on reverse-engineering proves that resilience can be built by learning how things work, repairing the broken, and applying the remains – maybe for an unfixed means. Both Fahmi Mursyid and Amelia Marzec use found or salvaged technology to create their sounds and instruments. Mursyid’s piece is the kind of ghastly, yet beautiful, soundscape that reminds me of why I first got fascinated with sound art. Marzec’s strange harmony feels like a calming ritual, a farewell to the era of disposable electronics.

-- Laura Gustafsson, Pixelache co-director
