Pozerajme sluchom

experimentálny workshop o tom, čo všetko sa dá „vidieť ušami“

Sobota, 10. októbra 2015
14:00 - 17:00

sa uskutoční v  klube Lúč v Trenčíne workshop z názvom „Pozerajme sluchom“. Podujatie sa koná od 14:00 do 17:00 a je určené všetkým od 8 do 99 rokov.
Cieľom tohto workshopu je inšpirovať ľudí, aby si skúsili predstaviť, čo „vidí sluchom“ človek v prírodných podmienkach a ako je schopný rozpoznávať podľa zvuku to, čo sa deje s ním a v jeho okolí.
O ľuďoch, ktorí prekonávajú extrémne prírodne prekážky, zdolávajú nedostupné miesta a splavujú divoké rieky, panuje predstava, že toto všetko sa dá, len ak sú vyšportovaní a stopercentne zdraví. No sú aj ľudia, ktorí napriek rôznym fyzickým obmedzeniam dokážu podávať špičkové outdoorové výkony, mnohokrát väčšie ako „my zdraví“.
K workshopu o spoznávaní sveta a orientovaní sa v ňom sluchom nás inšpiroval film „Slepá Dôvera“, kde nevidiaci Juraj Práger zdolá najvyššiu horu Európy - Mont Blanc.

Workshop sa skladá z dvoch častí

ANSTATT - a radioplay

by Barbara Huber & Lea Promaja
produced autumn 2014
broadcasted in the radia network spring 2015


Anstatt tells a story happening in Vienna. It explores the different
ways to live and experience one city. Two characters narrate one day in
Vienna and their narratives mix throughout the piece until it seems we
are dealing with one person.
The piece additionally highlights Vienna as a third character
represented in the piece thanks to field recordings and as the place of
the narrative itself : it echoes with the content of the character's
impressions throughout their day. Anstatt is an attempt to propose a
meeting : what we imagine about Vienna, and what Vienna is about, people
and confronting majestic Vienna with other identities, more down to earth.

Anstatt is non-fiction turned into fiction : it has been co-written by
Barbara Huber (AT) and Léa Promaja (FR). Written in English and German,
the text is based on the author's personal experience and relation to

Lea Promaja

FFF - Feminist Freaky Frequencies

Call for audio/radio pieces for the 8th of March (and ff)!

Create your own fresh feminist freaky 'Creeper Move Card'* in audio Version!
We are looking for short audio pieces from 00:01 minutes to 10:00 minutes long from all the freaky women and female collectives around the world. The pieces will be presented in a radio broadcast on the free Radio Orange 94.0 Vienna by b# and miss.gunst and will be broadcasted right on the 8th of March.

// * The Creeper Move cards are red and yellow cardboard cards which are designed to be handed to people at geek events who are harassing others or otherwise being creepy. The currently released print versions are in the style of red and yellow cards in football (penalty and warning cards, respectively). More info: http://geekfeminism.wikia.com/wiki/Creeper_Move_cards

// * Obviously the current versions (see especially the wording) are
debatable and thus anyway call for revision and refreshment.
So let us see if we can refine this tool!

FFF: Feminist Freaky Frequencies calls for your contributions:

COL-ME End_Season_Break

After a long and exhausting TIK project COL-ME crew decided to have a lazy autumn before breaking into new realms. Planned are a series of workshops for 2013 in cooperation with Progressbar, Bratislava. Plus we want to expand to the north and see, what Trencin can offer us in terms of 'New Territory'.

See you in 2013!

TIK Festival Brussels, 11-13th of May 2012

The Finisaze of the TIK Festival took place in Brussels from 11th till 13th of May 2012. COL-ME was present with altogether four artists and three invited radiomakers for RooftopRadio Brussels.

For each artwork and artist please see the separate page below.

The TIK project ended in May 2012 and as one of the results we are proud to present the TIK publication - a common publication of all the involved groups in the TIK project.
You can read the publication online or ask for a hard-copy exemplar at:
callme AT col-me DOT info

As a matter of fact not all the articles written were published. As we think, that all of the articles COL-ME received from it's writers are worth reading, we publish them now online.

Radio Rooftop from TIK exhibition

From 11th to 13th of May we will be running a live gallery radio stream from the TIK exhibition in Okno (Brussels, Belgium). With broadcast ranging from Open Mic opportunities for the participants of Jonathan Prior’s silent walk and Reni Hofmüller’s “Gstettn” walk to interviews and discussions with festival participants and artists. Contributions from the audience are highly welcome!

TIK Worklabs 2012


For the TIK exhibition taking place in May 2012 we planned to do some worklabs with the participating artists in order to build the installations, discuss still the articles published and to enjoy the last TIK months together after a long time of work.

The worklabs took place in
Vienna --> 14-16.03.2012 and 25-27.02.2012
Bratislava --> 8-10.03.2012 and 16-17.04.2012
Additionally we had on the 09 of March the public evening of the sound in Progressbar, Bratislava, where we presented preliminary parts of the works that would be exhibted in Brussels. See the invitation below.

Altogether we had four worklabs in collaboration with the Austrian organization Mz. Balthazaars Laboratories in which we developed our works. A visit in the Viennese 'Haus der Musik' brought Martina Kedrovas and Barbara Hubers work 'Ctesibius' into a more concrete shape, while Stefanie Wuschitz was fiddling on her mossclock and Ludmilla Hornakova put together the idea of the flying balloon.
In the course of this we discussed the articles of the publication as well.

MONOSKOP project finished

MONOSKOP project began as an attempt to provide deeper historical framework for developments in media art and culture of the 2000s. Initial motivation was to respond to criticism addressed to “new media” scenes in Slovak and Czech republics mainly for their given status of incomprehensible avant-garde. Various new media groups and collectives organising free software workshops, working with audiovisual processing, operating online pirate radios, discussing filesharing, recycling old hardware, and treating the Internet as their home-brew communication medium were immersed in exploring new technologies of a networked era and did not struggle very much with constituting its own discourse within art history. On the contrary, many regarded the independence from art market and institutional mechanisms of a field of contemporary art as their constituent trait.

Soundlab Graz @ESC

The soundlab in Graz was a short interference within the TIK project and served the development of COL-ME's soundworks so far. In cooperation with our TIK partner and the local organisation ESC a lab for experimenting with sounds was organized.
The aim was to see, whether we can build and how to build an exhibition device to represent soundworks.
After two days of experimenting with new materials like PLAAST, a material you can form in any shape when it is heated up to 60° we went thru several prototypes.
The original idea was to create 'soundshowers' - mechanical devices that would direct sound in space - basically like a laserbeam for sound. After several unsatisifying experiments with funny shaped things we turned to use PLAAST to see how sound and water would interfere. After creating several underwater soundboxes in all kind of shapes, we came to the conclusion that swimming speakers would give the best results in the question of directed sound in space.
