Noise

BY MARTIN LUTZ
@ VOL 13 ON NOV 07, 2014

Martin Lutz makes things with sounds and sound out of things. makes this to music. sometimes. declares the ambience to music. makes music to a part of the ambience. this is the music. and this music is the sound.

Martin Lutz studied musicology at LMU Munich and SoundStudies at UdK Berlin. He works as a composer, musician and sound artist for dance, performances, theatre, installations and film. The focus of his work is the examination with sound and its relevance for and texture in the space. Field recordings and experimental sound production are the basis for compositions, that take sounds and soundscapes out of their natural context to give them a new content-related and spatial sense.

Martin Lutz has been invited to work out and realise the sound concept and a music score for the new dance production "Bhinna Vinyasa – Multiple Assemblages" commissioned by the Kochi-Muziris Biennale from the Attakkalari Centre for Movement Arts, for the 2014 edition.

Two years ago he worked with Attakkalari on the performance "AadhaaraChakra - A Dancelogue“, which performed in India and Europe. The idea was to research contemporary Indian urban sound environments, to make field recordings of them and to create with this audio-material (in collaboration with the Austrian sound artist Sam Auinger) sound compositions that could be termed as somewhere between music and soundscapes. For this project they also worked together with Indian musicians to mix parts of the soundscapes with elements of Indian classical and folk music.

The requirements for the new performance will be similar. Basis for the artistic process will be the examination of site-specific Indian urban developments, social and cultural transformations of individuals and societies. The task will be to find a sonic language that characterises typical urban Indian milieus and their inner dynamics. He will work with Indian percussion musicians from Bangalore and also with video and light artists from Europe to find a performative path between (sound)installation, performance and music for contemporary Indian dance.

Field Trip to Bilpin, Blue Mountains

BY SABRINA ROESNER
@ VOL 20 ON MAY 20, 2017

Field Trip brought together contemporary Blue Mountains artists Sarah Breen Lovett,
Ona Janzen, Linda Seiffert and Jacqueline Spedding, in an exhibition of site-specific works that explore the physical, cultural and historical landscapes of BigCi.

BigCi (Bilpin international ground for Creative initiatives) is an artist run residency, located on eight acres of bushland, bordering the Wollemi National Park in the World Heritage listed Blue Mountains. The property and its artist residency program provide a unique platform for creative development, linking community, artists and scientists.

Curator Sabrina Roesner invited the artists on several‭ field trips to BigCi‭ over a twelve-month period, ‬where each artist directly responded to the environment and unearthed a myriad of narratives connected to the property‭. ‬Their diverse enquiries including video and multi‭-media installation‭, ‬photography‭, ‬ceramics and sculpture resulted in four site-specific installations displayed across the BigCi property.
