Liquid Architecture

Investigations: Eavesdropping Polythinking Ritual Community Music Why Listen?
Help Support LA
(close)
Info

Liquid Architecture is an Australian organisation for artists working with sound. LA investigates the sounds themselves, but also the ideas communicated about, and the meaning of, sound and listening.

Our program stages encounters and creates spaces for sonic experience, and critical reflection on sonority and systems of sonic affect. To do this, we host experiences at the intersection of contemporary art and experimental music, supporting artists to produce performances and concerts, exhibitions, talks, reading groups, workshops and recordings in art spaces, music venues and other sites.

Liquid Architecture is curatorially driven and our methodology embraces research, collaborations and imaginations. We want to echo beyond local conversations, problems, debates and questions, to reverberate across media and disciplines, and so to sound out new discourses about the audible world, and beyond.

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the first sovereign owners of this unceded country. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and becoming.

Workshop – Reading Reverse Reverb – Sonolab

Presented by Clare Cooper and Debris Facility Pty Ltd. In a futuring practice, memory and anticipation work side by side. As we engage with the forces of change – political, social, industrial, private or public – the challenge is to politicise our imaginings as we remember and connect with our different pasts. It is in the process of backcasting that we design from the (desired) future scenario to the present day, determining how we measure whether we are heading towards this particular future. For many of us, 30 years is just about the imaginable limits of time. If we can remember (or imagine) life 30 years ago, then we can imagine life in 30 years’ time. In the sonic time of social sound, how will we need to listen in order to deepen our understanding of each other, while holding a space for the unknowable?

The first Taipei workshop will open out from a series of speculative prompts extending from the experience of the Tainan workshop, and conversations with Taipei partners. Through guided activities and invited provocations, participants will experiment with strategies for hearing absent objects and (re)sounding future echoes.

工作坊-閱讀迴響反轉 – SonoLab​興城藝響空間

​主持​

藝術家:Clare Cooper

​(Clare Cooper是活躍於澳洲藝術界的表演者及策劃人,全心全意探索即興表演的社交性,及其激發同感與強烈的信任行為的能力。​)​

在「投射未來」的實踐中,記憶與期待共行。當我們參與政治、社會、工業、私人或公共領域的變革力量時,我們所面臨的挑戰是將我們的記憶與經驗由想像而政治化。這是我們從(預期的)未來情景到現今中的反推過程,以決定如何衡量是否正走向這個特定的未來。對於我們許多人來說,30年是一個可充分想像的時間線軸。如果我們可以記憶(或想像)30年前的生活,我們亦能想像未來的30年。在大眾聲音的聲波中,我們需要如何聆聽來深化對於彼此的認識,卻同時保有未知的空間?

在. ​上一場​.臺南舉辦的工作坊將從「投射未來」概念的語彙展開,由藝術家Clare Cooper本人在聽說駐地期間訪談的在地社群開始發想。用現在(2017年​)作為投射軸心,參與者用時空反轉倒置的假想,投射出多樣合理的未來。本工作坊延續在台南『聽說』空間的工作坊

​內容​,將與台北的參與者共構對談,想像過去與未來的30年(1987解嚴後 至 2047香港失去自治時),以及2017的現在,藝術於社會中可能的聆聽與價值。
