Sound-Walk with Christian Galarreta (PE) organized by Franz Pomassl (Soundstudio) and Martina Simkovicova (Art and Photography), Institute of Fine Arts. In in association with IKT. Part of Invisible Scapes – The Sonic Terrain of Field Recording Symposium.
In Amplified Hearing & Electrosmog Tour, he presents indoor and outdoor tours in different rural and urban locations in order to sense and to register vibratory phenomenons that sometimes are imperceptible for the human perception. These waves could come from electromagnetic fields (electrosmog), from subaquatic and atmospheric acoustic signals, and from spaces listened across the structure of the elements that compose them which become acoustic filters for the surrounding sounds (this elements could be cars, bridges, grids, etc).
Christian Galarreta is very active in the South American experimental scene since 1995. The sublime and the uncertainty are present in his actions, he gets them using broken electrical appliances, homemade audiovisual instruments, field streamings, field recordings, feedback systems, the induction of errors in the software-hardware and in the way to play musical instruments. He transduces imperceptible physical phenomena for humans to an audible dimension (as electromagnetic fields or sub-acuatic sounds). Today he lives between France and Netherlands and continues developing his independent projects and researches in “Stichting Centrum” at Den Haag.
