CT::SWaM Broadband Echos
This show explores theories and approaches to spatial sound works, while also addressing the subjectivity of translating spatial works to the radio format. Episodes feature performances, discussions and artist interviews, highlighting recent and upcoming events in the CT::SWaM live event series.
CT::SWaM [Contemporary Temporary Sound Works And Music] is an artist-run series that has been presenting performances and workshops in spaces such as Eyebeam’s former Chelsea location, Fridman Gallery, and The Knockdown Center in NYC, as well as Neu West Berlin in Berlin. The series, initiated by Daniel Neumann in 2012, focuses on spatial sound works, where the distribution and localization of sounds is a primary compositional parameter and a central feature for the listener. These works consider architectural, acoustical, and technological factors in exploring the complex and dynamic relationship between sound and space. The formats are open and include contemporary sound experiments, electro-acoustic multi-channel composition, improvisation, non-traditional performance configurations, lowercase artistic presence, and workshops – all of which diverge from a fixed perspective on audible space.
The series presents and reflects on spatial sound works from CT::SWaM.
