A WINDOW FROM SILENCE

The title of this festival edition refers to artistic visions that start from a special spatial condition and are presented in cooperation with the CHIGIANA International Festival – radioarte (Siena, IT).

 

We come from a period of silence yet of great sound production by the authors and we look out of a window of silence into a new landscape.

 

Coming out of the pandemic situation, the world is again looking out of a window from silence into a scenario that is yet to be discovered. What sounds from silence? What sounds will we hear?

 

A broad field opens up for international and local artists to approach this topic from their own perspective, from poetry to ecology. At present, however, it is the terrible noise of war that can be heard not far from our national borders.

 

The artists present their works in performances, talks and installations in an atmosphere of openness. The open-air venue, located in the vineyards directly in front of the Klanghaus, becomes a meeting place where artists and visitors can also exchange ideas personally. The artistic presentations are accompanied and documented by our project partner CHIGIANA International Festival – radioarte radiophon.

 

CHIGIANA – radioarte is dedicated to the topic “A Window from Silence” in various radio and sound art broadcasts as part of the CHIGIANA International Festival, which takes place in July/August in Siena, and cooperates with Klanghaus Untergreith and many other international partners: e.g. – 60 seconds (Canada), -Sunset Sound 2021 Festival of Avantgarde Music and Sound Art (China), -Radio Aporee (Germany), -Radioprhenia (Great Britain), -Dot unlimited, -Uradio-University of San Paulo (Brazil), – ZKM (Germany), -Fair Play (France-Belgium).

 

The Klangzeit Festival – Summer takes place as part of “MiCS” (Music in the Countryside/ Enterprise Klanghaus Untergreith).“MiCS” is one of 22 projects selected as part of the international call for proposals MusicAIRE – An innovative recovery for Europe/ European Music Council, co-funded by the European Union.

Höret die Zeichen im dunkel der Nacht

 

KLANGZEIT SPRING – HEAR THE SIGNS IN THE DARK OF NIGHT

17. & 18. June 2022 Hrelji 45 Zminj / Istrien / HR

SLOW LIGHT – SEEKING DARKNESS is a trans-disciplinary artistic project developed by the cultural organisation Klanghaus Untergreith for the Alps-Adriatic Region. Slow Light was among the four winning projects funded through the first open call of the Carinthian Cultural Foundation KKS.

 

Since May 2021 events have taken place at Sajeta Festival in Slovenia, Stazione Topolò in Italy and in collaboration with the art organisation Innenhofkultur in Carinthia in Austria, showing a wide range of artistic and socio-cultural works related to the topic of the lack of darkness in the Alps-Adriatic region in the form of residencies, performances, podcasts, broadcasts, hybrid digital workshops and publications. 

 

The next major Slow Light event is taking place at Hrelji 45 in Istria, in synergy with the “Klangzeit Spring” (Sound Time) festival, which took place online in 2020 and 2021 because of Covid-19. The Istrian event is a return to Live. Project partner Radio Agora will broadcast the event on air and online. 

 

International and local artists present their work in performances, discussions and installations in an atmosphere imbued with familiarity and openness. The location, set between acacia and olive trees in the Istrian countryside, becomes a meeting place where artists and visitors can engage with one another.

 

Conceptually, the project is dedicated to all aspects of darkness. This offers artists a broad field to approach the topic from their own unique perspective. The events and artistic approaches to poetical and ecological facets of darkness are completely overshadowed, though, at the moment by the war in the Ukraine. In that sense, HEAR THE SIGNS IN THE DARK OF NIGHT is a call for peace, and for solidarity. 

 

On the 18th June 2022, the next Slow Light event (free entrance) will take place in the intimate ambience of Hrelji 45 in Zminj, Istria that invites artists and visitors to consider the meaning and value of darkness. 

 

On the 17th June, Hrelji 45 will host workshops for school children from the St. Martin School Villach, Austria and from across the Alps-Adriatic region, where they will develop collaborative site-specific works together with artists from Croatia, the UK, Italy and Germany that they will present and perform live the same day.

4 days of sound art, experimental music and transmedia art
November 25th to November 28th, 2021, 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

The Klangzeit Festival 2021, originally planned as part of four live events, will now take place as a four-day hybrid festival online, on site and on air due to the pandemic. We are pleased to have won IKLECTIK London, Radio Agora Leutschach and the Austrian Composers Association as cooperation partners.

 

IKLECTIK is a creative platform founded in 2014 that specializes in contemporary art, especially sound art, installation and interdisciplinary work. IKLECTIK OFFSITE is a virtual space in which interdisciplinary boundaries overlap in order to create projects that examine processes and techniques, address social, political, cultural and critical issues.

 

KLANGZEIT Festival (Online – On Site – On Air) 2021 is a transdisciplinary concert and performance series with the participation of internationally renowned musicians, sound artists, composers and visualists. It stands under the motto “Hybrid Sounds / Hybrid Beings” and will take place online from November 25th to November 28th, on site (at Klanghaus Untergreith) and on air (in cooperation with Radio Agora) on November 27th.

 

With the hybris of modern thinking, our culture speaks of hybrid forms of life of postmodern culture – what is primarily meant is the mechanical extension of the human being, the engine of movement. Music is a paradigmatic game with the hybridity of the physical – between music as the composition of codes for sounds according to relational thinking and making music as physical forms of sound. The culture of human nature is hybrid. Music is deeply hybrid culture of a hybrid nature. Aside from considering hybridity as a technological mixture of analog and digital sounds, hybridity means something fundamental for music: the mutual relationship of the human and mechanical body in its extensions. Is there an intelligent design of cultural forms without emotion, can humans and machines “be intelligent without any emotions”? While modernity set boundaries between the disciplines, the plurality of postmodernism juxtaposes the diversity of appearances – hybridity means: diversity in unity. This opens up a listening into the body as the acting designer of culture as a step towards a natural culture of hybridity, the consideration of the multiplicity of phylogenetic knowledge of the physical. The auditory opens up a variety of life possibilities – in hybridity it overcomes the hybris as the uniqueness of a rational western culture. (Werner Jauk)

 

The participating artists are: Gavino Canu (IT), Viv Corringham (UK / US), Matija Debeljuh (HR), Anna Dian (AT), Beba Fink (AT), Matthias Forenbacher (AT), Romana Kemlein-Laber (AT), Paul Jonas Kinnunen (FI ), Samo Kutin (SI), Herbert Lacina (AT), Katherine Liberovskaya (CA / US), Henrik Meierkord (SE), MUG Trio (SI), Tracy Lisk (US), Zahra Mani (AT/ UK), Arun Natarajan (IN), Tamara Obrovac (HR), Astrid Rieder (AT), Carla Rees (UK), Hermann Stangassinger (AT), Tibor Szemzö (HU), Wolfgang Temmel (AT), Sohrab Udumann (UK), Sarah Watts (UK ); Lena Wicke-Aengenheyster – Monsterfrau (AT/ DE) and Mia Zabelka (AT).

Es treibt Blüten SA 18.05. 2019 17:30 Uhr

Das Klanghaus Untergreith präsentiert am Samstag, dem 18. Mai 2019 um 17.30 Uhr das Festival Klangzeit / Frühling unter dem Motto „Es treibt Blüten“.

Der Titel in all seiner Zweideutigkeit lässt Spielraum für Interpretation in viele mögliche Richtungen.

Er bezieht sich einerseits auf den Frühling, die Knospen und Blüten der Natur. Jahr für Jahr beobachten wir aber, wie das Blütentreiben früher beginnt und die gewohnten landwirtschaftlichen Rhythmen durcheinanderbringt. Seltsame Blüten also, die Nachdenklichkeit und vielleicht auch Besorgnis erregen.

Die „seltsamen Blüten“ sind auch in gesellschaftlichen und sozio-politischen Spaltungen spürbar, und der Titel deutet auf kreative Reaktionen auf den Status Quo hin.

Außerdem treibt es, im Sinne der künstlerischen Momente, die das Klanghaus Untergreith seit über 10 Jahren mehrmals jährlich bietet, kreative Blüten. Eine spannende Kombination aus heimischen und internationalen KünstlerInnen kommt am 18. Mai zusammen. Die AkteurInnen reflektieren im intimen Ambiente des Klanghaus Untergreith das „Blütentreiben“ in ihrer Musik und in ihren Texten.

TeilnehmerInnen sind die Schriftstellerin Dragica Rajcic (HR), die Klangkünstlerin Andrea Sodomka (AT), der Sprachperformer und Komponist Tibor Szemzö (HU), der Schlagwerker Jaka Berger (SI), die österreich-britische Klangkünstlerin Zahra Mani (UK/AT), die steirische Komponistin und Klangkünstlerin Mia Zabelka (AT), der Videokünstler Gavino Canu (IT) und die Elektronikmusikerin Svetlana Maras (RS).

Ab 18h überträgt Radio Agora das Programm live. agora.at/livestream

ECHOES ON AIR   23.9.2018 23:03 CET

curated by Mani d.o.o.
in the context of
Echoes from invisible Landscapes, a smaller scale cooperation project co-funded by the EACEA with the kind support of the Alp-Adriatic Alliance

ECHOES ON AIR is a live simultaneous radio network project that will be broadcast in realtime on four major national radio stations (ORF, HRT, Radio Slovenija ARS and Radio Serbija / Radio Belgrade 3). Associate radio stations that will broadcast the stream and / or document the event include Radio Agora (AT), Usmaradio (IT).
ECHOES ON AIR is part of the Alp-Adriatic initiative Echoes from Invisible Landscapes, a smaller scale cooperation project co-funded by the European Union.
ECHOES ON AIR is an artistic and cultural bridge, built of sonic particles from across the region in all its linguistic, musical and historical diversity, bringing the region together in a large-scale radio event with broad audience outreach.
ECHOES ON AIR is both a metaphor and a phenomenon. The Alp-Adriatic region is made audible in a collaborative live radio event, bringing together regional partners and their trans-disciplinary expertise.
ECHOES ON AIR was developed  by Mani doo (Istria). Project partners are project leader Enterprise Z (Styria), the University of Klagenfurt and Wieser Verlag (Carinthia) and Zveza Mink Tolmin (Slovenia).

In each of the four studios, one artist will be performing and one artist will be mixing the live broadcast. The performances will be sent via live stream to each of the other participating studios. The live sounds will be mixed with the incoming signals from the other 3 studios. The mix of these four channels is broadcast to listeners. Four different versions of the same piece emerge, simultaneously, in the ether.

ALARM! 22.9.2018 5 pm Hrelji 45, Zminj, HR

ALARM!    22.9.2018 5 pm Hrelji 45, Zminj, HR
A reflection on Echoes from invisible Landscapes

co-funded by the EACEA Creative Europe programme (smaller scale cooperation projects)
with the kind support of the Alp-Adriatic Alliance

Art, culture, performance, sound and language have the power not just to reflect society but also to instigate change and thus to shape it.
Europe in 2018 is far from the liberal role model many want it to be, and thought it was.
Society is fragmented and fundamental principles of living together in a respectful and democratic, diverse and shared community are being called into question, indeed undermined.
Fear-mongering and ignorance in the face of human need are being imbued with political acceptability as right-wing nationalist parties are elected into governments across Europe.
The flood of migrants, whose reasons for fleeing their countries are often rooted in Western colonial exploitation and failure to help in time, is seen as a threat.
Threatening, though, is the separation, the “us – and – them” mentality, the endorsement of differences in rights and privileges based on where you were born.

ALARM! The evening and its underlying concept are a reminder, a discourse, a call to the most basic elements of humanity and society.
The situation we are in should not be marked by political preference or allegiances but by the most basic, fundamental facts of living together that make society possible.

ALARM! Art, culture and discourse can and do instigate change. As practices and platforms, individual instances of creativity with broader resonances, they can reflect, distill, formulate and emanate not just their immediate context but also collective histories and future possibilities.

ALARM! The evening will commence with a reception, followed by a podium discussion between Dragica Rajcic and Johann Pätzold, hosted by Colette Schmidt, a cultural journalist who writes for the Austrian Der Standard and lives in Vienna. She also specializes in reporting on far-right extremist movements, human rights and the politics and culture of remembrance. As an author, she is a member of the Austrian theatre collective Theater im Bahnhof. Dragica Rajcic is a Croatian poet and thinker who lives between Austria, Switzerland and Croatia. She writes in the German she learned when she moved to Switzerland; the title of her first published volume of poetry reflects the linguistic and semantic background: Halbgedichte einer Gastfrau. Her work moves intellectually in the frictional space between syntax and semantics, between the expected and the other, between foreignness and the concept of home. Her partially autobiographical writing illuminates the concept of the generality that can grow out of an own trajectory and the shared elements inherent in individuality. Johann Pätzold is a musician and composer and an active member of Sea-Eye, an organisation dedicated to saving migrants from the Mediterranean sea. He worked on a lifeboat and recently published a number of statements online, answering questions posed to him during and after his time at sea. His stories and language reflect the potential brutality in our societies and nonetheless shine with the hope of an absolute imperative amongst some of us to help those less fortunate than ourselves. Sandra Kocuvan is an EU project advisor and represents the cultural department of the Austrian state of Styria in its external and foreign relations. She is also a member of the Alp-Adriatic Alliance committee.

ALARM! Art, music, discourse and social change are incredibly broad concepts and the evening does not intend to cover comprehensively any single aspect of any of the greater spheres. The evening brings audiences and participants together in a reflective space combining dialogue and performance.

ALARM! Following the live conversation and audience conversations, there will be a short break followed by musical performances by Tamara Obravac with Uroš Rakovec, Tibor Szemzö, Juri Tore, Roberto Paci Dalo, Benjamin Finger, Mia Zabelka and Zahra Mani.
