Colin Black: Akusttični prostoru – predavanje: V predavanju bo spregovoril o metodologijah, ki ga bogatijo kot umetnika, o odnosih in uporabi akustičnih prostorov, o binauralnem snemanju zvočnih krajin, o radijskem oddajanju, distribuciji, načinih poslušanja, razumevanja in raziskovanju prostora, kot tudi socialnih in kulturnih kontekstih snemanja in predvajanja zvočnih krajin. Prav te zvočne struktre, ki jih ustvarja poslušalca vzpodbujajo k razmišljanju, razumevanju lokacij in različnih kultur.

Colin Black: Kilian’s Antipodean Dream – sound performance Kilian’s Antipodean Dream (Kilianove avstralske sanje) jemljejo za izhodišče resnično zgodbo luteranskega pastorja Jana Kiliana (1811-1884), ki je poskušal svojo vero zaščititi pred primežem pruske oblasti in sanjal o tem, da bo odrešenje našel v tuji deželi. Odločil se je, da bo emigriral v deželo oziroma na kontinent, o katerem ve bore malo: v Avstralijo. Colin Black je ob nastajanju tega dela potoval v domovino Jana Kilian, v Gornjo Luzacijo, kjer je snemal zvoke iz Kilianove cerkve, njegovega doma, intervjuval Sorbe, raziskoval zgodovinske dokumente in na lokaciji posnel Kilianova besedila. Iz tega materiala je Black ustvaril nekaj, kar je Deutschlandradio opisal kot »akustično fantazmo« njegove domovine: Avstralijo, lesketajoč zvočni prostor med domišljijo in stvarnostjo«. Jan Kilian v resnici ni nikoli stopil na avstralska tla; premislil si je in leta 1854 emigriral v Texas (ZDA) s 550 drugimi luteranskimi Sorbi.  Kilian’s Antipodean Dream se tematsko navezuje za znano Kilianovo sorbsko pesem iz leta 1846 “Zbudźenje za Serbow” (“Wendish Awakening”)

Jolin Black je za svoje celovečerno radijsko delo prejel nagrado Prix Italia leta 2013, v letih 2010 in 2011 pa se je uvrstil v finalni izbor za nagrado Prix Phonurgia Nova. Ugled, ki si ga je Black pridobil s svojim ustvarjanjem, mu je prinesel številna naročila za daljša inovativna radijska dela, ki se predvajajo na pomembnejših evropskih in avstralskih radijskih postajah. V svojem bogatem opusu in številnih aktivnostih na vseh celinah sveta se kot ustvarjalec osredotoča predvsem na zvočne in večmedijske raziskave, komponira krajša in daljša dela za razstave, instalacije in radijska predvajanja, je kustos številnih zvočnih in večmedijskih razstav in galerijskih postavitev. Na potovanjih in mednarodnih sodelovanjih ter konferencah redno predava o sodobnih zvočnih in radijskih umetnostih in razumevanju zvoka kot takega.

Colin Black will discuss his use of field recordings in his work to explore ideas of place, as well as social and cultural contexts. Integral to Black’s practice is his use of field recordings as a part of his arts based research, from which Black has employed a range of methodologies that aim to enhance practitioner engagement with acoustic environments.

Colin Black: Kilian’s Antipodean Dream, (sound performance)
Wednesday, Feb 12, 2014, 9:00pm (Live audio and video stream)
Centralna Postaja, Koroška cesta 5, Maribor

Kilian’s Antipodean Dream (duration 51 minutes) is based on the true story of the Sorb (or Wendish) pastor Jan Kilian (1811-1884) who, to keep his Old Lu- theran faith from the clutches of the Prussian government, dreamt of salvation in a foreign land. His initial emigration plan was to go to a continent of which he could have only had a very vague idea: Australia. To create this new work Black traveled to Kilian’s homeland in Upper Lusatia (East Germany) and made location recordings of Kilian’s churches, his home, interviewed Sorbs, re- searched historical documents and recorded Kilian’s text on location. From this material Black composed what Deutschlandradio describes as an “akustisches Phantasma” [acoustic phantasm] of his own homeland: Australia, “einem schillernden Klangraum zwischen Imagination und Realität” [a shimmering sound space between imagination and reality]. In fact Jan Kilian never set foot on Australian soil, he changed his mind and emigrated to Texas (USA) in 1854 with 550 other Sorbian Lutherans.  Kilian’s Antipodean Dream is also based thematically around Kilian’s famous 1846 Sorb poem “Zbudźenje za Serbow” [“Wendish Awakening”], which follows in Sorb and English.
