A collaboration between researchers and artists Konstantin Dudakov-Kashuro, Peter Aidu, and Evgenia Vorobyeva ReNoise explores the unique noise music culture that thrived in post-revolution Russia.
Complementing the GenerationZ : ReNoise exhibiton on Russian sound art and music technology pioneers at CTM 2014, ReNoise will display both a variety of handmade amateur proletarian noise instruments as well as a selection of reconstructions of the more than 200 mechanical noise instruments invented by Vladimir Popov between the 1920-1950s, uniting both in an overview of instruments of the early 20th century Russian noise movement for the first time.
Dudakov-Kashuro, Aidu, and Vorobyeva will host a 4-day ReNoise workshop, which invites amateur and trained musicians to learn to play some of the proletarian instruments and industrial sound devices invented by Popov, and perform a programme of original pieces in a final public concert.
The ReNoise workshop is limited to 8 people who will take part in the noise orchestra, and up to 20 singers who are invited to make-up a choir (preference is given to female singers due to the workshop's techniques, however male singers may also apply). The workshop requires registration, which offered on a first-come-first serve basis.
→ To register: Please specify whether you are interested in taking part as an instrumentalist (8 spots) or member of the choir (20 spots): firstname.lastname@example.org
