performance & lecture, in English language
How do we navigate complexity; where should we put our ears and how do
we hack our capacities to listen rather than bemoan or mis-recognize the li-
mitations; what other possible worlds can we imagine through listening; how
is enlightenment chrono-politically relevant for radical social evolutions in
these necessarily de-colonial times; what sonic chrono-politics twist you up;
how is enlightenment entered into through sound; how can we hypothetically
construct a cosmic or universal logic for social intelligence through listening;
how do we connect minds by sonifying layers of abstraction; what are dera-
cinating gestures of abstraction, and what can they do to unmake normative
thought patterns and behaviours that eat self-models (our own and those
of our companions); how do we practice the erotics of listening with every
person, species, thing or environment, with sound invisibly everywhere; how
can we formalize listening; where do sound transformations transform you;
how do we investigate sonic morpho-poetics as paths of discovery where
triadic operations unveil multiple layers of codification–from over-coding
to the nought(s) of thought; how do we listen to the nothing of nothing; why
is sound, through every material transformation, a universal logic of eros?
If there would ever be a "fundamental" to Xenoethics, it might be that listening is an irrevocable convolution of the mind independent. In this workshop, combining forms of lecture and performance, d-n-e will investigate and abstract evolutionary steps and questions in relation to speculative topologies of listening–with complex sound transformations, in proposed techniques for deracinating computer music production.

The basics of subtractive
with the aid of an
analog modular synthesizer system
The lecture is primarily intended for beginners as an entry and decision support. It combines a guide into the world of analog modular synthesizer systems with an introduction to subtractive synthesis.
Sonic performative bodies
and multisensorally adaptive
environments / virtualities
In this seminar, theoretical works with sound-bound body-environment interaction are set in relation to our current digital culture by means of own artistic research work.
