How do places and spaces influence our thoughts, actions and experiences? What do spaces offer, what do they allow, demand or prevent? How do spaces emerge and change through what happens in them and with them? The festival LABOR SONOR : TRANSLATING SPACES explores the power of space in contemporary experimental music and sound art.
The motto of the festival is: Listen twice! The audience will have the opportunity to experience sound and music simultaneously or consecutively in changing situations, places and spaces. To this end, the festival presents nine original works by composers and installation artists, which will be presented over three days in extremely different locations. An accompanying symposium explores the development processes of the works premiered at the festival and brings artists and audiences into direct dialogue.
