SOUND IN PUBLIC SPACE
SONIC CELL seeks ways to present musics and sound art outside familiar spaces such as concert halls and off stages. We conquer city spaces and activate synergies with our respective urban and natural environments. We find our locations in parking areas in residential streets, where, according to traffic regulations (STVO §76), no permit is required for temporary and private use.
SONIC CELL aims to activate neighbourhoods and tap into a new audience by delivering art to their doorstep. czirp czirp sees by placing art in urban space the potential for musicians to leave their usual habitat and a moment of insight, for the audience, into other, unfamiliar worlds. We want to promote dialogues between artists and the audience.
SONIC CELL 2021
czirp czirp – sonic and experimental arts, RAD Performance (Conny Zenk), and the sound designer and composer Gustavo Petek (smallforms), conceived of ways how to implement a mobile infrastructure for experimental musics and sound art. Proof of concept in 2021, located at Schlesingerplatz 1080, showed how urban spaces could be quickly transformed into a temporary venue for multi-channel compositions. Artists: Brigitta Bödenauer (AT) and Katharina Klement (AT).
SONIC CELL 2022
The second, post-pandemic set-up in 2022 focussed on including acoustic and electronic instruments in the listening experience. We reached out to local artists who explore unique sonic universes.
