Venue: Doclab 56 Nguyen Thai Hoc
Let’s go the the unique talk and performance of the Swedish sound artist/writer Pär Thörn. He will present his own works and tell about his movement from poetry to music and performance art.
Apart from this will he also present some of his influences from a European avant-garde sound poetry and experimental music tradition. The presentation will circulate between poetry reading, tape pieces and discussions of aesthetical questions. After a Q & A and a short break, he will play a live set with tape recorders, radio, objects, prepared speakers, computer and voice.
Was born 1977 in Uddevalla, Sweden and is currently living in Berlin, Germany, Thörn is a live ¬electronic musician, writer and conceptual artist. He is considered one of the most interesting younger writers in Sweden. During the latest years has he started working more and more with sounds? He wants to emphasize the mechanical and material aspects of the tape recorder and the unsecure element in the use of radio. The music moves between sine waves, circuit bending, clicking stroboscopes, metallic sounds, chanting sound poetry and brutal screams that get juxtaposed with the found material of the radios. Thörns record “Schöneberg/Stammheim/Gärdet/Rågsved” (Treffpunkt) got nominated as the best Swedish experimental music record during 2008.
Currently he is active in projects with the dancer Takako Suzuki, the Turntablist Ignaz Schick, the saxophone player Martin Küchen and the writer Andrzej Tichý.
