Baltic Sounds Good

Baltic Sounds Good is a two-day audio-workshop curated by Maciek Olewniczak from  Art Centre Gallery EL and the Polish sound artist Krzysztof Topolski, topped off with a live concert at Art Centre Gallery EL on the 30th of September, 18:00 – 20:00.

For those of you who´d want to attend, but can´t, the concert will be live-streamed. Go here to listen to what the Baltic might sound like in the mind of sound-artists.

The workshop has gathered artists from Poland (The SOUNDLAB group) and Russia interested in musical improvisation. During the workshop these artists will record and gather sounds from the Baltic Sea and the city of Elblag in Poland. Recording equipment, such as handy recorders, professional microphones and hydrophones, will be used. The artists will have creative freedom in processing the recorded sound which will be presented at a live concert at the 30th of September, audially telling the audience about the Baltic and the city of Elblag. A CD entitled “Baltic Sounds Good” will get printed, as well as a DVD documenting the process of the project. More information about the CD and the DVD will be put here. Keep yourself updated.

About SOUNDLAB:

The primary interest of the group is to examine sound and its associations with pictorial elements and other external impulses. Its participants use technical instruments such as microphones, computers and recorders. Gathered and examined sounds become the raw material of future “musical” tracks. The recorded material is processed and distorted and turned into soundscapes.

Listen to a track calledNoiseDrones from a previous SoundLab arranged by Art Centre Gallery EL.
