The Klangkunsttage, or sound art days, form a nomadic festival that generates temporary spaces for performance practice in order to sound out the transitions and breaks between fine arts, sound as a structure of perception, and music. The three-day festival is held for the second time, in cooperation with wellwellwell. Apart from concerts and performances by local and international sound artists, an exhibition will direct the gaze and ear towards the different processes of sound transformation and how they hint at various concepts of metamorphosis.
Lectures and workshops complete the artistic program on discursive and practical levels. They deal with theoretical positions, for example on the relationship between sound art and pop culture, on conceptualism in (new) music, and on other matters, while artists provide an insight into the technical and conceptual backgrounds of analog and digital sound design, instrument building and circuit bending.
