@ VOL 13 ON NOV 07, 2014

Martin Lutz makes things with sounds and sound out of things. makes this to music. sometimes. declares the ambience to music. makes music to a part of the ambience. this is the music. and this music is the sound.

Martin Lutz studied musicology at LMU Munich and SoundStudies at UdK Berlin. He works as a composer, musician and sound artist for dance, performances, theatre, installations and film. The focus of his work is the examination with sound and its relevance for and texture in the space. Field recordings and experimental sound production are the basis for compositions, that take sounds and soundscapes out of their natural context to give them a new content-related and spatial sense.

Martin Lutz has been invited to work out and realise the sound concept and a music score for the new dance production "Bhinna Vinyasa – Multiple Assemblages" commissioned by the Kochi-Muziris Biennale from the Attakkalari Centre for Movement Arts, for the 2014 edition.

Two years ago he worked with Attakkalari on the performance "AadhaaraChakra - A Dancelogue“, which performed in India and Europe. The idea was to research contemporary Indian urban sound environments, to make field recordings of them and to create with this audio-material (in collaboration with the Austrian sound artist Sam Auinger) sound compositions that could be termed as somewhere between music and soundscapes. For this project they also worked together with Indian musicians to mix parts of the soundscapes with elements of Indian classical and folk music.

The requirements for the new performance will be similar. Basis for the artistic process will be the examination of site-specific Indian urban developments, social and cultural transformations of individuals and societies. The task will be to find a sonic language that characterises typical urban Indian milieus and their inner dynamics. He will work with Indian percussion musicians from Bangalore and also with video and light artists from Europe to find a performative path between (sound)installation, performance and music for contemporary Indian dance.

From Thread to Cloth – From Stitch to Style

@ VOL 14 ON OCT 15, 2016

As a designer, Zayra Estrada gets inspired by everything that surrounds her. She like to challenge herself and create garments with the least thing you could ever imagine using.  She likes for her designs to have an extra meaning, to have a history behind them, and to help women love their second skin (clothing) and use them as a tool to conquer the world.
