Carina Pesch, aka La Pesch, co-curator of GERÄUSCHKULISSE in Leipzig, and shortlisted for the Sound Walk September 2020 Award for her work The Ears May Travel, and walk · listen · create, invite you to reflect upon the specific nature of sound traveling – be it in music, soundscapes, sound walks, or any other sound experience.

As a sound and voice artist, radio maker, and curator, Carina’s horizon of sound works is wide – in form but also in content. She does radio documentary and radio fiction, improvised and scripted pieces, sound walks and audio walks, field recording compositions and soundscapes, sound installations and performances – all solo, as well as collectively. Anything that ‘sounds’ highly fascinates her. Carina has learnt from Petschinka, Antje Vowinckel, Hans Peter Kuhn, Christina Kubisch, Chris Watson, and many others. Like a sponge she absorbs their different approaches and combines them to an intuitive new whole.

During this presentation and discussion, Carina will try to answer what connects all these different approaches, what holds together her diverse works in the core, where the fascination for the acoustic stems from, what the specific character of sound is for her, and, yes, walking will also be an integral part of the event.
Movement of body and mind, curiosity, listening as a means of understanding, the relationship of experiencing and observing, and how to transform experience into voice, will all be discussed.

Join us for an intimate approach towards an artist’s world, and an in-depth exploration of moving acoustics.
This event will be moderated by Geert Vermeire.
