The 14th session will be dedicated to "Artistic Research in Seismology and Sound. A Double Discourse"
with Volker Strebel and Florian Dombois
Florian Dombois (Art): Luginsland
Volker Straebel (Theory): Listening to earthquakes. A short history
Volker Straebel (Art): Sound observations
Florian Dombois (Theory): Why Art as Research?
Florian Dombois and Volker Straebel both address in their theoretical writing and artistic work the gain of knowledge by means of aesthetic practices. In this double discourse, Dombois will describe his sound and installation pieces that refer to seismological data while Straebel discusses how the sound of earthquakes was researched before the introduction of magnetic recording into this field by Hugo Benioff in 1952. Afterwards, Straebel will present his Sound Observation Series while Dombois addresses the notion of artistic research in music and sound art.
