Björn Gottstein, Künstlerischer Leiter der Donaueschinger Musiktage zu dem diesjährigen Festival: 

Mit zwanzig Urauführungen bietet das Donaueschinger Wochenende auch in diesem Jahr wieder eine Fülle
an Neuem und Überraschendem. Dabei war es uns ein besonderes Anliegen, eine möglichst große Bandbreite gegenwärtiger Stile und Ästhetiken vorzustellen.
Neben den Konzerten mit dem Sinfonieorchester und den großen Ensembles aus Paris, Wien und Hamburg stehen in diesem Jahr vor allem Formate im Mittelpunkt, die sich nicht im Konzertsaal realisieren, sondern die
z.B. als Computerspiel angelegt sind, die einen neuen persischen Hyperrealismus vorstellen, als virtuelles Festival im Festival nur angedeutet werden oder gar in einem Schwimmbad unter Wasser stattfinden. So werden Sie, liebes Publikum, in diesem Jahr nicht nur gebeten, Neugierde und offene Ohren nach Donaueschingen mitzubringen, sondern auch ihre Badesachen einzupacken. Auch die Neue Musik geht neue Wege!

 

With twenty world premieres, the Donaueschingen weekend once again offers a wealth of new and surprising things this year. It was of particular concern to us to present the widest possible range of contemporary styles and aesthetics. In addition to the concerts with the symphony orchestra and the large ensembles from Paris, Vienna and Hamburg, the focus this year will be on formats that are not t for the concert hall, but that are for example designed as computer games, that present a new Persian hyperrealism, that are only hinted at as a virtual festival in the festival or that even take place in a swimming pool under water. So this year, dear spectator, you will not only be asked to bring curiosity and open ears to Donaueschingen, but also to pack your swimsuit. New music does strike new paths!

Call for Papers July 2020

Round table
Knock, Tap, Rap

28 and 29 November 2020, Mainz, Germany

www.ars.institute

Knocking, Tapping and Rapping are terms to describe sounds as well as cultural practices that have important functions in a wide area ranging from everyday life to arts, religion, language and philosophy, communication and language. It became virulent recently in the political discussion about the «no-knock warrant» in the US.
But there seems to be more to the subject than that: from the use of knocking to test material to the literary topic of door-knocking, to the extensive use of knocking sounds in sound art and contemporary music. The sound of knocking, tapping and rapping inhabits and intervenes in multiple contexts.

For a two-day round table mini-symposium on the auditory phenomena of knocking, tapping and rapping ARS – CUPRAS is looking for contributions from different academic fields and professions, including, but not limited to:

 Humanities and culture studies (in particular literature studies, musicology, art history, philosophy, anthropology)

Examples:

•  Humanities
•  Life Sciences
•  Nature Sciences
•  Social Sciences
•  et al

reports from practical experience are also welcome, for example:

• Culinary studies
• Experience from craftsmanship
• Engineering
• et al

as well as artistic contributions on the theme of knocking, tapping and rapping.

We are interested in a multi-disciplinary exchange and hope to bring together a wide variety of approaches and views. And we also welcome contributions that approach the field of everyday sounds and their meaning under a different connotation.

The Round Table is planned for 28 and 29 November 2020 at the Academy of Sciences and Literature Mainz and at the Music School Mainz of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany.
(Due to the uncertain situation in autumn an online conference or a mixed version is also possible.) If you are unable to attend, we are also happy to receive texts and written comments.

A publication of the results is planned.

Please send a proposal of a presentation (10 – 15 min)
and/or text contributions to: ars@uni-mainz.de

Deadline is September 30, 2020.

We will notify the selected speakers in due course. If you have any Questions regarding the round-table, please do not hesitate to contact us: ars@uni-mainz.de

Organization Committee
Prof. Peter Kiefer (Director of ARS – CUPRAS), peter.kiefer@uni-mainz.de

About ARS – CUPRAS :
ARS – CUPRAS is a research project operating under the umbrella of the Gutenberg Research College at Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz; this project aims to open new prospects for interdisciplinary research on sound. The project is dedicated to enhancing knowledge and public awareness of our audible environment. It explores the variety of relations between sound as an object of scientific study and sound as a medium of art. Drawing on the paradigm of artistic research, we seek to explore questions of knowledge production and creativity as they pertain to artistic and research activities. We believe that the arts and the sciences can greatly benefit by a mutual exploration of their respective forms of perceiving, representing, and shaping the world.

ARS – it’s all about listening !
