The third edition of the "Listenings – concerts to be toured" series will take place between 10 October and 3 November 2019 in the Królikarnia Park in Warsaw. "Hearing, persevere and transference" are the key words of this year's edition, which will focus on the details of concerts and musical performances invisible to the naked eye: sound waves, time, human–instrument relationship.
The concert series will begin with a hypnotic audiovisual performance In My Own Wave. Moving images by Katarzyna Korzeniecka inspired by the ebru – a centuries-old paper decorating technique – combined with the meditative music by the star of Polish electronic music scene Jacek Sienkiewicz will invite audience to a synesthetic journey into audiovisual space. During the performance at Królikarnia, both sound and image will be generated live for the first time. Computers, synthesizers and speakers will be used to create the sound waves. On the screen we will see a close-up of the water wave modified with buckets, cuvettes, brushes and boxes as well as pigments and other mysterious substances.
Time is an indispensable companion of the musician and artist in his profession. Thanks to the sound installation Systematics of heterotrphic organisms (outline) by Michał Libera, the time that is given to the recipient to get acquainted with the work – usually very short during the concerts – will be extended to allow the recipient to familiarize himself with work several times. The sound installation filling six museum rooms was created based on the novels by Franz Kafka.
The series will also premiere a DVD Incorporate released by BÓŁT publishing house, featuring works by Kuba Krzewiński and Rafał Zapała.
