Chrs Galarreta :: amplification of electromagnetic fields , open circuits and electronic trash

Davide Tidoni :: Magnifying My Sphere of Power

TWNO/The White Noise Orchestra :: ‘Collective instant composing between silence and low sonic dynamics’


Chrs Galarreta (Peru). Very active in the South American experimental scene since 1995. Founder member of the independent label and association Aloardi and of bands like DiosMeHaViolado (soloist project sometimes in collaboration with Claudia Machuca, Fabian Escalante, Yuri Gutierrez and Aldo Castillejos), Evamuss (as soloist), Azucena Kantrix (with Wilder Gonzales), Tica (with Fabiola Vasquez), Garrapata (with Gabriel Castillo and Rolando Apolo), Ninguna Ninfula (with Sabrina Melenotte), Miasma (with Sergio Sanchez), 50 Otages (with Mathiu Finisterre, Bernard Bruit and Julien Otavi) among others. The sublime and the uncertainty are present in his actions, he gets them using broken electrical appliances, homemade audiovisual instruments, field streamings, field recordings, feedback systems, the induction of errors in the software-hardware and in the way to play musical instruments. He transduce imperceptible physical phenomena for humans to an audible dimension (as electromagnetic fields or sub-acuatic sounds). He is mostly interested in the exploration of the aforementioned interfaces and auto-regulated systems to apply them to create inmersive experiences, experimental songs and des-compositions, hacking the human perception of space-time as a form of civil disobedience and social auto-reorganization. He comes from an autodidact formation, today he lives between France and Netherlands and continues developing his independent projects, researches and studies in the Institute of Sonology of the Royal Conservatoire and in the “Stichting Centrum” – VillaKabila at Den Haag. His work has taken him to make concerts, installations, performances, lectures and workshops in Latin America and Europe. http://sajjra.net


Magnifying My Sphere of Power is a live performance in which I sing, dance and play drums along with a selection of my favourite punk songs. Based on my personal everyday-life musical activities, such as my teenage experience as aspirant drummer and my more recent interest/involvement in football chanting, the performance amplifies the power of music as an emotional inciter, an agitator that animates physical energy and self-presence. With this performance I want to emphasize the role of the listener as a responsive agent that plays a central role in the musical process, and more generally reflect on what music listening means in terms of reconstruction of meaning (appropriation) and activation of personal agency (participation).

Davide Tidoni is an Italian artist and researcher. His research focuses on modes of listening and sound-space relations. His work includes site-specific interventions, acoustic territory explorations as well as sound ethnography fieldworks and listening workshops. He has presented his work at the Barbican Centre – London (2012), the Ars Electronica Festival – Linz (2011), the Venice Architecture Biennale (2010), the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Exeter (2009), and RAUM – Bologna (2009).

The White Noise Orchestra/TWNO is initiated in 2010 by contrabassist and crackle boxplayer Raoul van der Weide as an ongoing experimental project. TWNO functions as a ‘pool’ of improvisers dedicated to the concept/point of departure and representing creative performers form different background: acoustic music, dance, light design and live-electronics. TWNO explores and develops systematically the possibilities of collective improvisations in the context of low dynamics and sparse but unpredictable configurations of sound, noise, and pitch structures. TWNO’s specific approach represents a fascinating artistic challengeand and outspoken contribution to improvised music as a vital tradition.  TWNO performs in shifting formats between trio and full 16 piece ensemble.
