Edyta Jarząb is a performance and sound artist. She learned the practices of Deep Listening from the composer Pauline Oliveros, which she implements in her work for forms of sound activism. Her interests range from the voice as a bridge between public and private spheres, to listening, singing, and improvisation as acts of socio-political resistance.
In the Lantz’scher Park, Edyta Jarząb introduces the practices of Sound walking in the context of a workshop. With bodily exercises and sonic meditations, she brings participants closer to the relational and spatial continuities of sound events, with regard to their resonant surfaces. The approach to the urban landscape as a sphere of sonic possibilities can stimulate a new understanding of the sensorial significance of sound in space. It suggests new, creative strategies for confronting and critically examining our acoustic surroundings, so that we can ultimately re-shape them in an active way. The workshop lasts one and a half hours.
The number of participants is limited to twenty people.
Edyta Jarząb (*1983 in Warsaw, PL) lives and works in Warsaw. She was a resident of the experimental studio Worm in Rotterdam and is a permanent collaborator of the interdisciplinary platform Q-O2, which is based in Brussels.
