Magne to take part in ‘Choreography Of Sound’ symposium

Magne will be in Karlsruhe, Germany on Tuesday November 5th, to take part in an international symposium called “Choreography Of Sound – Between Abstraction and Narration”.

He will do two different presentations in the afternoon:

3:45 pm: “Everybody is a Composer – Art Slam with Magne Furuholmen”
“In projects like “Everybody is a Composer” (Oslo National Museum) or “Cathedral Footsteps” (Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin) Magne Furuholmen examines the conditions of a space and the dynamics between performer and audience together with the artist-collective Apparatjik. Through audience participation, new compositions emerge as collective works of art. How does everyone become a composer? How does such a heterogeneous sound find its form? How does rhythm become image? This presentation takes the form of a dialogue with author and pop-expert Jenni Zylka.”

4:30 pm: “Complicate Your Life – Decomposing and recomposing a pop song”
“Since Pete Townsend – inspired by his encounter with Gustav Metzger – in the 60’s made the destruction of instruments into a dramatic live gesture, destruction and decomposition have become as fundamental to rock music as its connection with visual art.
In Magne Furuholmens workshop the participants will experience how de- and re-constructing a pop song can create new meanings. By reconfiguring pop songs Furuholmen refers to the emergence of sampling in the 90’s that radically challenged questions of ownership and copyright.”

More info is available on the symposium’s website. The event is free and open to the public, but reservations need to be made before October 31st.
