★ Julian Siffert – Tactile Acoustics
(Lecture Performance)
Based on the physiologies of human listening and the voice, Tactile Acoustics is an attempt to outline an acoustics of touch at the intersection of bodies, space and sound. Through speech as well as performative, participative and musical means, combining scientific with fictional narratives, it reflects on the idea of sound as corporeal excess. Therein it focuses on the voice, the primary human instrument of sonic production as a dynamic bodily excrescence. A force, that bends materials across micro- and macroscopic, organic and synthetic domains to mimic form and movement of a speaking body, more specifically of its vocal apparatus.
★ Monica Vlad
Monica Vlad changes the functionality of old media devices and everyday objects to create new sounds. She combines the astonishing sound textures and seemingly endless possibilities of the noise genre with sounds from opposite genres such as classical music to create a „paradox soundscape.“ Her live performances are different each time, but always intense, dramatic and powerful.

smallforms is a platform and music label for contemporary and experimental forms of music which require an attitude of listening. the monthly series consists of recording sessions in the afternoon and concert/live set in the evening (curated by gustavo petek) joining forces with electronic allies, spoken word, spinning tunes or sweet stuff of pop culture (curated by alisa beck) that may lead to the underworld (or hell).
Mit freundlicher Unterstützung von SKE, bmkoes und der Kulturabteilung der Stadt Wien.
