Ottosonics Festival 22

Samstag, 17.9.

15:00 – 18:00 Florian Göschke: The SonIcosahedron – a spatial (auto)instrument – interactive soundinstallation, Donaulände Ottensheim

17:30 Presentation by the artist at the installation

Florian Goeschke is a sound artist based in Vienna. In his current research at the Tangible Music Lab Linz he examines the interconnection of sound and motion and its impact on human perception through a method that interrelates listening and doing. He studied Fine Arts in Basel (CH) and Electroacoustic Composition at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna. He received a M.A. in Sound Studies from the University of Fine Arts, Berlin in 2010. Beside realizing site specific installations, he curated sound art exhibitions in Berlin from 2009-2013. His work has been shown in venues and festivals such as Hausklang at Haus der Kulturen der Welt and club transmediale in Berlin, Cultura Nova (NL) and Concertgebouw Brugge (BE) among others.

15:00 Klingt verrückt! – Field Recording Workshop für Teenagers mit Fino Poly

Schieße mal die Augen und hör genau hin.
Wie klingt eine Wiese?
Was hört man unter Wasser?
Wie weit können wir hören?
Wie nehmen wir Geräusche wahr, wenn wir nichts sehen?
Diese Fragen und vieles mehr werden wir in dem Workshop beim OTTOsonics Festival in spielerischer Form erforschen. Mit verschiedensten Mikrofonen, Aufnahmetechniken und natürlichen Hindernissen gibt es einen Einblick in die Welt der Geräusche in der Natur.
Für diesen Workshop sind keine Vorkenntnisse notwendig, nur Interesse!
Bringt eure Kopfhörer und / oder Smartphones mit, wenn ihr welche habt.

ab 12 Jahren, für die Anmeldung schreibt bitte ein Mail an manu@goon-studios.com

15:00 OTTOsonics come together – Eröffnung, Einführung

15:00 – 17:00 Impulse Response Measurement in FOA and HOA, Workshop mit Matthias Frank (IEM)

Learn how to capture a room frequency impulse response with an ambisonics microphone. The purpose of the workshop is to capture the reverberation characteristics of historic spaces (e.g. Schloss Ottensheim) for archival and creative use. For each physical space, a kind of sonic snapshot called an impulse response (IR) is created using an ambisonic microphone. The resulting files can be decoded into any playback format–mono, stereo, 5.1, binaural, ambisonics etc.  With this workshop Matthias Frank will set out to know what the best practices are for recordings spaces using ambisonics, know what is the best software for convolving the IRs.

18:00 Mariam Gviniashvili, Ida Hiršenfelder – Stücke aus den Residencies in Ottosonics (Alter Bauhof)

Mariam Gviniashvili is an Oslo-based electroacoustic music composer and visual artist originally from Georgia. Her compositional focus is on investigating the role of spatiality in music. Her artistic practice also extends to audiovisual works in which she explores the relationships between 3D sound and moving image. She collaborates with performers and creates music for dance and theatre. Gviniashvili has been commissioned by Notam, Center for Art and Media | ZKM, Electric Audio Unit, Nordic Voices, Heroines of Sound Festival and ARCOS dance. Her music has been presented internationally at concerts and festivals such as the New-York Electroacoustic Music Festival, BEAST FEaST, Transitions concert series at CCRMA, ICMC, Cube Fest, Mixtur Festival, ARD Hörspieltage, Klingt Gut, MA/IN and Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival, among others.

Ida Hiršenfelder (1977) is a sound artist and archivist who performs with an onomatopoeic acronym “beepblip”. She makes immersive bleepy psychogeographical soundscapes with analogue electronics, DIY and modular synths, field recordings and computer manipulations. She is interested in bioacoustics, experimental music and sound spatialisation. She was a member of the Theremidi Orchestra (2011–2017) and is currently a member of the Jata C group for bioacoustics and sound ecologies. Her solo albums Noise for Strings, Vol. 1 (2019) and Noise for Strings, Vol. 2 (2020) were published by the Kamizdat label. Currently, she studies Sonology at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague.

19:30 Enrique Tomás – Live from Donaubus (3rd order ambisonics live audio streaming)

In the age of videoconference and telematic concerts, is it possible to stream a musical improvisation in 3rd-order-ambisonics format? in this performance, Enrique Tomás (with the technical help of Daniel Romero -stream wizard- and  Peter Luger -Donaubus captain-) proposes the experiment of transmitting an improvised Hörspiel from the middle of the Danube -on the Donaubus ship- to the Alter Bauhof speaker system in Ottensheim. The sonic action will be captured with a 3rd-order microphone and it will be streamed using custom open source software through Internet.

Enrique Tomás (*1981) is a sound artist, post-doc researcher and senior lecturer at the Tangible Music Lab who dedicates his time to finding new ways of expression and play with sound, art and technology.

20:00 Brassmatiker – Konzert

21:00 Fatomás – Mehrkanalkonzert

Das Duo Fatomás versetzt das improvisatorische Element in den Kontext elektronischer (Club-)Musik. Eine hypnotische Klangfahrt aus experimentellem Ambient, improvised music, Free Jazz und Techno – gänzlich im samplefreien Echtzeit-Moment.
Fatima El Kosht (Voice, flute, percussion, electronics)
Tomá Ivanov (guitar, electronics)

22:00 Enrique Mendoza – Mehrkanalkonzert

Transduktor III (16:00) Transduktor III is an analogy of how humans can transform energy into very positive outcomes but also to terrible ones against nature and us.
Ground Beatings (8:00) “The interconnection of all created things to each other, brings it about that each simple substance has relations that express all the others, and consequently, that each simple substance is a perpetual, living mirror of the universe”. G. W. Leibniz, The Monadology, 1714

22:45 Rojin Sharafi – Mehrkanalkonzert

Rojin Sharafi is a Vienna-based, Tehran-born soundartist, performer and composer of acoustic and electronic music, which freely crosses the borders between genres. She creates entirely unique musical textures through the use of analogue, acoustic and augmented instruments, as well as digital tools of her own devising. She is currently pursuing her masters in composition and sound engineering at the Vienna University of Music and Performing Arts.

Her debut album “Urns Waiting to be Fed,” with Zabte Zote, has been lauded as “one of [2019’s] most ecstatic and fiercely original hours of music.” A second album, “Zangaar,” was released in 2020. Sharafi has worked with countless collaborators and been part of numerous co-productions in film and dance. Her work has been presented at festivals and venues the world over from Sheffield to Riga and Budapest to New York and Washington DC. She is a SHAPE 2020 artist and recipient of the 2018 Austrian female Composers prize.

19:30 Stefan Juster & Robert Schwarz – Mehrkanalkonzert

Artist in Residence results. Our interest during this residency lays on the scientific work of Diana Deutsch on auditory perception. Professor of Psychology at the University of California, San Diego, she is internationally known
for the musical illusions and paradoxes that she discovered. These include the octave illusion, the scale illusion, the tritone paradox, the cambiata illusion or the phantom words illusion, just to name a few that we have already explored independently in our solo projects Jung An Tagen and Augsburger Messer.

Describing a variety of different experiences, most of these phenomenons are based on and have exclusively been explored within stereo playback.
Not unlikely sculptural attempts of a painter, rendering two-dimensional work into the third dimension, we would like to translate these phenomenons into the multidimensional sonic space that you provide. In this regard it will not be sufficient to simply add the additional speakers, the individual concepts have to be projected and scaled into new spatial dimensions.

20:30 WURF (Bernhard Breuer, Mario Stadler, Manu Mitterhuber, Gigi Gratt) – Mehrkanalkonzert
