Mantric Phonemes by Rob Blake
Samstag 28. Januar 2017, 19:30 – 22:00
Mantric phonemes is an improvised collaborative choral exercise which uses the sacred word “om”, and mobile phones. Participants will create experimental choral and drone textures with the devices. As we incant the ancient sound and create harmonious dialogue with each other and the phones via satellites, perhaps we will reach a higher plane of understanding and acceptance of our new digitally augmented environment.
Please bring your phone (not compulsory).
Mantric phonemes takes place on the occasion of Rob Blake’s solo exhibition at Centrum and as part of the Vorspiel festival, a citywide programme of events before and during the transmediale and CTM festivals in January and February 2017.
In his first solo show at Centrum, PMSL: msgs n msundrstndngz (14 January – 10 February), Rob Blake presents a series of new works that deal with the symbiotic relationship between technology and social spheres, considering how it functions in our daily lives amid increasing acquiescence to corporate and political misinformation.
