Raviv Ganchrow: Listening Sites
SONIC ACTS FESTIVAL – THE DARK UNIVERSE Raviv Ganchrow: Listening Sites 22 February 2013 – De Balie, Amsterdam, the Netherlands --- In the panel Dark Signals the focus shifts towards the arts, and how they explore unknown behaviours of sound and electromagnetic signals. Raviv Ganchrow sheds light on how he researches sound and listening. Raviv Ganchrow's talk explores contextual approaches to sites of listening in his recent work. It includes musings on the making of Fray (a site-specific installation questioning our sense of situatedness within a relational understanding of place) as well as two works-in-progress concerning critical sites of radio production, namely a Long-Wave transmitter and a Hörspiel studio. Ganchrow elaborates on strategies that explore, tweak and at times intervene in everyday contexts of hearing. Particular attention is placed on habitual practices inducing inadvertent modes of listening with pronounced spatial-material senses of sound.
