The FIELD KITCHEN ACADEMY is an interdisciplinary educational residency programme that gathers artists/ creative minds, a resident chef and prominent experts from different fields together around a kitchen table through mind-opening acts and actions.
On its second edition, a total of 11 interdisciplinary residents will be selected to join the upcoming FIELD KITCHEN ACADEMY in its three modules. Curated by Ece Pazarbaşı, this year, under the title of THE CURIOUS LOOP, we will use the notion of loops-in-sound as a gateway to other concepts of repetition, offering a variety of individual and collective experiences. Loops represent a time that is suspended, which is a compressed source of the past, present and the future. The loop also oscillates between the known and the unknown; as for the viewer and listener it could unfold to a future of known (as it repeats the same material over and over again), but also it may relate to an unknown (as surprises are always welcome), and one never knows if the loop will be broken with an unknown sound or visual component – no matter how well defined and repeated the loop has developed in the past. If one cannot step into the same river twice, and if one opens to perception with all senses, what differences can we find in each loop?
Composed of three intertwined modules that allow for different durations in the residency, the program is open to application from all disciplines and all walks of life. The selected residents will have the opportunity of pursuing processes of experimentation, discussion, trial and error, the progression of knowledge, and know-how in working sessions during the first 3 weeks. The last half week will be the ‘simmering’ period where the residents are expected to do NOTHING but only LISTENING.
** The outcome of the Field Kitchen Academy’s three working sessions will be presented as part of The Curious Loop Public Program. The Public Program is partially supported by Musikfonds and Die Beauftragte der Bundesregierung für Kultur und Medien.
Location: GUTSHAUS WÜSTEN-BUCHHOLZ, Perleberg, Germany / app. 2 hrs. away from Berlin. Selected participants will be announced by 6 July 2020.

Showreel of DMSA students’ Sound Art works (2003-2019) as curated by Dr Kersten Glandien
with Graeme Miller
16:30-18.00pm Edward Street, Room 309 – 3rd Floor
Artist Graeme Miller looks at a trajectory of works that are linked by their unsolicited nature from night-walks across Birmingham to bell-ringing in Paris and onto his most recent voyage across Europe on an improvised rail dolly, Wild Car.
Miller’s international work spans film-making, sonic composition, installation, and performance, but common strands emerge about place and presence, witnessing and situation.
For more info on Graeme Miller see:
Lighthouse presents The Space in Sound: a day of talks and an evening performance exploring ways sound can occupy space.
This will take place at The Old Market on 25th March 2020.
They’ve offered us a discounted group price of 10 tickets for the price of 9. If we do a group booking this would mean we could get tickets for the symposium and the evening performances for £22.50 per person.
Please get in touch with me if you’re interested in taking advantage of this discount.
WARM UP FESTIVAL
Warm Up Festival, Aug 21-23 2020, is a new three-day music festival set in the pine forests of Hertfordshire: https://www.warmupfestival.co.uk/.
Our vision is to engage all the senses in an immersive environment by bringing captivating contemporary art to our woodland setting. We are looking for art in the form of unique sculptural works, curious installations, bespoke light pieces, performance art, and video work either pre-existing or site-specific proposals.
‘Home is where the house is’ is our family motto. As such, we are particularly interested to find artists that explore the concept of ‘home’ because community is at the heart of our festival. A take on the theme can be abstract or entirely literal. We are also open to other artworks/proposals that do not necessarily adhere to this concept.
Warm Up is a visionary pillar of the London club scene, earning itself a reputation as one of the most respected dance music communities in the city, famed for its legendary parties, welcoming atmosphere and forward-thinking sound palette, representing the best in techno, house, progressive and electronica.
