Atau Tanaka and 1+1=3


1+1=3 featuring Atau Tanaka will participate in Helicotrema – Recorded Audio Festival. The presented piece entitled “Monitorn” is the outcome from the ongoing preparations for Transformation III in Paris.

The festival started in 2012, the festival is a non-profit platform for the promotion of narrative and multidisciplinary sound works – such as radio plays, audio documentaries, experimental poetry, field recordings and other timeline-based formats based only on an acoustic component – reproduced in the framework of collective listening sessions.

This year Helicotrema, as winner of the 5th edition of “Premio Imagonirmia, art residency and publishing project”, joins forces with Imagonirmia and Ovestlab to present a site-specific edition in the district of Villaggio Artigiano di Modena Ovest. Helicotrema 9 will take place at the end of September and will present a programme of listening sessions for residents of the district and visitors.

In this context the festival will use a loudspeaker system for sports events, excellent on voice frequencies, and a mobile system in quadriphony for compositions with wider spectra of frequencies. The location, one of the most important athletics stadiums at national level, can be a clue for inspiring the authors to propose sound research that reflects on body, competition, exercise. At the same time the festival remains open also to contributions on other subjects.

CM goes to Karelia

Curatorial Mutiny is proud to announce Gold all in my Veins - A MULTI SENSORIC GUIDED TOUR through the mines at Outokumpu Old Mine Residency. The project brings together young artists from dance, music and visual art from Norway, Finland, Sweden and Germany who will work with the local community in Outokumpu September 12-20.

The architecture at Outokumpu Old Mine is the stage for a guided tour connecting baroque philosophy, history and spectacles to the tunnels, the earth and the surrounding area in Outokumpu. Introducing dance, poetry, music and food the artists state: "we will drink glitter and gold and let it run through our veins. The womb of the mine connects to our bodies, our breath and our movements and leaves us in states of awe. We guide you through this interdisciplinary experience, through your senses and look forward to share our thoughts on the so called ‘ornamental kitsch period’ baroque and test its actual capacities together."

Please join us for a public event at Old Mining Site, September 18 at 21h.

The project is co-produced with Morgondagens Konstpublik and Vision Forum. It forms a part of Curatorial Mutiny's ongoing events that investigate the impact of Jakob von Uexkull's thinking on how we understand our senses. The workshop and  is supported by Nordic Culture Fund, Nordic Culture Point and The Swedish Arts Council.


We Are Going East

It is going to be a very Finnish autumn for Curatorial Mutiny. We start gently with a residency at Källskär, Åland Islands before we go all  Finnish. In September our Baroque Architecture and Submission team will join MKP for a residency at Old Mine Residency in Karelia. The working session will culminate with a public presentation of the piece. It is a new and reworked version of the performance and dancers, musicians as well as visual artists from Sweden, Finland, Germany and Norway will join.

October 12-13 we will participate in the finissage and mini-festival in conjunction with the exhibition "2084." Some of our members will present performances at the Cable Factory, Helsinki. We have been invited by Catalysti and the events are curated by Anne Klontz.

If you prefer to stay at home, we suggest you join the Vision Forum team on August  7, from 17h (CET), for an online cooking event with Governing Bodies. The event focuses on creating food that supports your microbiota (the microbes that we live in symbiosis with) to develop in a healthy way. If you want to join, drop an e-mail to Rudi Heinrichsen at info [at] visionforum.eu.


Curatorial Mutiny in Stockholm

It is well-known that every cloud has a silver lining. Due to the Covid-19 situation, Teater Reflex in Stockholm has had to close its doors to its audiences. This sad fact, means that Curatorial Mutiny has access to the marvellous and magical space. We make use of this in June 2020 and to try out new choreographic, musical and technical solutions. We hope that you will be able to see the outcome of our experimentation on a scene or in a public space close to you in late summer or early autumn.

Where Do the Waves Go available online,

In 2019 Curatorial Mutiny and Vision Forum organised the festival “Transformation” in Stockholm.  It was a 3-day bonanza of lectures and performances that celebrated the logic and madness of the human brain and body when it creates music using naturally occurring signals in the body. During the marvelous events, modular synth geeks, cult brainwave-musicians, neuroscientists, neuro-psychologists and experimental musicians met and were seduced by each others’ passions.

Now, and for a limited time, you have the rare and unique opportunity to see Fabien Guillermont’s amazingly funny, interesting and artistically brilliant documentary online. The film looks at the festival with love and warmth. You will meet some of the participating artists and thinkers as well as examples of their professional practice. You have the opportunity to hear converging and diverging views on Brainwave music. Last, but not least, you will also find out what The Da Vinci code really is!

You find the film by clicking here.
