SPRING 2020!
confinement>corona>looking for new ways

Art Is a Guaranty of SanityLouise Bourgeois

*******

NYX (isabelle duthoit – voice, clarinet, sophie agnel – piano, objects,  angĂ©lica castellĂł – paetzold, tapes, objects, sounds, assemblage) did a sound miniature per day during 59 days, each time a new beast, being together in sound!

3 cities, 3 mobile phones, playing and the same time but not together at 3 in the afternoon, not knowing what the others are playing.
then just putting all 3 recordings together, and change some volumes, some mixing and do some equalizing, no cutting: for the love of lo-fi, dogma and brut mixes !
inspiration is the fantastic little book of laure belhassen “femmes animales“ – bestiaire mĂ©taphorique. (Ă©ditions des grands champs)
thanks to: sistema nacional de creadores de el arte (snca / mexico)

Angélica Castelló
F. Firefly (nothing) 2018
With recordings made in residencies in South Africa (Sonic Mmabolela) and South Chile (From North to South/From South to North).
Mastering: Martin Siewert
“F. Firefly (nothing)” is a piece which plays with time, time that stands still and then stretches longer and longer.
It is a connection of 2 very different poles on Earth.
It is an sonic thought about ephemerality, encounter and loss.
This piece is dedicated to Frans Meeir, a beautiful person I had the chance to meet at Sonic Mmabolela in South Africa in 2016 and who sadly passed away a year later.

Constellations of the Audio-Machine in Mexico
Curated by: Carlos Prieto Acevedo

Constellations of the Audio-Machine in Mexico explores the history of sound in close dialogue with visual arts, literature, painting, cinema, dance, photography and anthropology from the beginning of the 20th century to the present. Throughout four subjects: The Indiofuturism, Cosmopolis of Mexico, The Monstrous and Emanations, the exhibition addresses the practice of different artists interested in building the national modern project guided by the utopian fantasies of the Mexican metropolis and the cosmopolitan dream in Latin America. The exhibition is comprised by paintings, photographs, archives, engravings, documents and projects by more than 30 visual and sound artists that have been fundamental for the history of sound in the country. A version of this exhibition was presented at the Transmediale Festival in Berlin in 2017 and for the first time it is exhibited in Mexico.

Beautiful Book with CD !
theoral no. 13 – Konkrete Abstraktionen. GesprĂ€che mit AngĂ©lica CastellĂł und Burkhard Stangl

The THEORAL project is creating a collection of oral history of the creative music scene (improvised, experimental, new music, jazz, &c. music) which is at the same time – following Gilles Deleuze’ and FĂ©lix Guattari’s notion of the rhizome – open to all sides. We do not appear as authors, we act as a medium, as translators and filters. The artists tell their (hi)story themselves, because : “Who else 
 would be better suited to speak about this product than the the instrument through which it appears? Surely, if such highly creative music can come from such minds, the same minds can give some insight about it and themselves in relationship” (Henry Threadgill in George Lewis, A Power Stronger Than Itself).
