GRAF brings you the programme of contemporary art in Catalonia. The agenda that combines all agendas.

Merche Blasco & Claire Williams perform EEMF04

19:0021:00 h
Venue: Hangar
Emilia Coranty, 16 – Can Ricart
08018 Barcelona
Presentation
On July 26 at 7:00 p.m. Hangar’s Sala Ricson hosts the EEMF04, the fourth installment in a series of multichannel pieces in which Merche Blasco explore and perform the electromagnetic field activity (EMF) of the buildings where the pieces are presented. As Blasco listens to the structures themselves, conducting field recordings of the electromagnetic activity unique to every space, she involves her body in the data collection and the technology she uses to translate the EM activity into audible material. These recordings are then spatialized in a multichannel system that reimagines the topology of the EM spectrum, including the highly regulated hierarchy of frequency allocations (radio stations among them) within it.

Against this electronic backdrop, participants of the workshop Wearable Antennas, taught by Claire Williams, will render audible the energetic forces of the space at the moment of the performance.
