Komuna Hall, Kino Šiška, Ljubljana, Slovenia

ZVO.ČI.TI so.und.ing DUO series
Program will present three sound, performative and sound instalation works:

Brandon LaBelle and Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec – Margins of listening, Performance, premiere work, 2015
In search for the invisible, the inaudible and the uncountable, Brandon LaBelle and Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec explore the relations between activities of looking at, reading and listening to a text. What kind of transitory and rhythmical space can be established through and in-between these activities? Can abstracted rhythms of enunciation carry meaning of silent words, and when does the memory fade, giving way for abstraction and transformation to occur?

Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec – Tuning In, Sound installation, 2011
Installation Tuning In points towards the existance of an inaudible homogenous and ongoing musical sound that is not located in any particular place but exists in time alone. The installation puts forward a collection of recordings of a single tone “a” found on the internet, that is making audible a small stream of this ongoing global drone.

Brandon LaBelle –The sound at the back of the mouth, almost
Where does my voice reside? What sounds does it make within the space of thought? Following the voice in and outside the body, LaBelle’s presentation will aim for the inner voice as the paradoxical coupling of sound and silence. From such a perspective, the voice is imagined as a hinge bringing into contact the above and below of language.

About the artists:

Tao G. Vrhovec Sambolec (SI/NL/NO) is an artist and musician working with invisible ephemeral phenomena and the notion of space. His artistic practice is a poetic exploration of relationships between transitory and temporal flows like sound, weather phenomena and human activities and architectural and social spaces they inhabit.

Brandon LaBelle (DE) is an artist and writer living in Berlin. His work addresses the relation of the public and the private, sociality and the figure of the outcast. This results in situational projects and performances, interventions in public spaces, acts of translation and archiving. He is the editor of Errant Bodies Press and Professor at the Bergen Academy of Art and Design, Norway.
