Performance Lyd & Litteratur 2018

September 23, 2018

I will be performing at Lyd & Litteratur (Sound & Literature) festival in Aarhus At Radar on oct 27. I will be performing the piece "Lysistrata" which will be a sonification and manifestation based around the physical production (printing) of this Greek comedy exported from public domain in the cyber world and out to the real world  - a transformation and action which will lead to inevitable deconstruction of the piece as an original piece of literature.

Ess Beck residency at IAC

February 18, 2018

I will be moving my praxis in to IAC (Inter Arts Center) from 10-18 of March where I will be expanding and exploring my creative methodology over the course of this production period, followed by a post production period that will result in a final piece (to be released).

During my residency I will unfold my process-oriented methodology, examining themes such as self-spectatorship, autopoiesis and flow. Placing my praxis at IAC creates a perfect opportunity to explore conditions of creativity, in terms of how the producing entity's understanding of time, space, action relates to the understanding of purpose and how this affords a simultaneous creation of an imagined recipient, from the perspective of the producing entity (me).

By using process I attempt to expand and suspend normative ideas of productivity in relation to (sound) arts and performance. I will use the intersection between sound and music as an aesthetic context and "action space" where I will investigate what happens when the dialogical discourse in artistic production becomes multi-directional and particularly self-directional; What does this mean for my own understanding of process, matter and poetic significance in relation to productivity? And what kind of artistic products/results does this question-driven, open-process methodology foster?
 

I will do meticulous self-observation through out the stay - this will be done on various mediums: One of them is on my blog, which is a free-form flow of thoughts before, during and after the stay.  READ HERE

Ess Beck @ Sisters Academy, Den Frie 2017

August 24, 2017

I'm delighted to let you know that I will be participating in the Sisters Academy Project this fall.

I will enrol as a visiting artist/Teacher from 6-8 of october, with sound as my primary medium.

 

"Sisters Academy is a school in a world and society where the sensuous and poetic mode of being is at the center of all action and interaction. It defines the primary mode of being and is the values on which all societal institutions are building – including the school. Thus Sisters Academy is the school in what we term a Sensuous society – A potential new world arising from the post-economical and ecological crisis(...) Sisters Academy is equally rooted in performance art, research, pedagogy and activism. For a more in-depth description see Research. Also see articles and press here. Here-within a dialogue between Ass. Prof. Ida Krøgholt, Arts, AAU and The Sisters here and an extended selection of articles on the work of Sisters Hope here."
