Seismographic Sounds – the Exhibition

The Norient exhibition Seismographic Sounds – Visions of a New World showed and discussed contemporary video clips, tracks and sound art from around the globe. It has been touring from August 2015 to February 2017 around Switzerland, Germany and Italy. Seismographic Sounds is a multi-authored exhibition about new diversity brought forth by digital cultures. It is closely linked to the new Norient book Seismographic Sounds [1].

The Exhibition

Musicians and Sound Artists all over the world make themselves heard through Soundcloud, YouTube and Twitter. Their tracks, video clips and audio collages challenge known forms and ideals and propose Visions of a New World. They offer surprising, smart and provocative perspectives that are simultaneously reduced, salient and profound. Norient highlights these contemporary artistic positions and argues about their potential and limits with journalists, bloggers, artists and scholars from different places and cultures of knowledge. The exhibition further introduces people behind the scenes in experimental audio podcasts. The exhibition counters pessimistic views that globalisation and digitalisation has led to cultural uniformity and the destruction of the world’s musical heritage.

With:
Ali Gul Pir (Pakistan), Bad Copy (Serbia), Blank Banshee (Canada), Burgerkill (Indonesia), FOKN Bois (Ghana), Gato Diablo (Bolivia), Johannes Kreidler (Germany), Meira Asher (Israel), Olimpia Splendid (Finland), Salome MC (Iran), Stromae (Belgium), Soap&Skin (Austria), Temi Dollface (Nigeria), Umlilo (South Africa), Raed Yassin (Lebanon), and many others (see below [2]).

Press Quotes

«Seismographic Sounds ist damit ein unverzichtbares Kompendium für kosmopolitische Liebhaber von Popmusik zwischen Lokalem und Globalem, Mainstream und Underground, Techno-Avantgarde und Folklore, Politik und Kommerz.» Jörg Scheller, Süddeutsche Zeitung [21]

«Wenn der britische Popkritiker Simon Reynolds in seinem Buch Retromania schreibt, er ‹glaube nicht, dass irgendeine Musik im Museum funktioniert, einem Ort der Stille und Etikette›, so kann das für die Ausstellung im Berliner Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien nicht gelten.» Julian Weber, Jens Uthoff, TAZ [22]

«Exhibiting the internet, here this succeeds surprisingly well.» Ina Plodroch, German Radio, Deutschlandfunk, Corso [23]

«Einheitsbrei und reine Selbstdarstellung im Internet, wie wir sie von weltbekannten Popstars kennen? In der Ausstellung Seismographic Sounds ist davon keine Spur. Diese Musik-Videos und Podcasts sind nicht Selbstzweck, sondern eben wirklich Seismographen, die feinste Erschütterungen aufzeigen. Und die – mit Text und Bild – einen oft gnadenlos genauen Blick werfen auf ihr jeweiliges Land.» Jodok Hess, SRF 2 Kultur [24]
