Harmony through Sound Design
BY IMAN FATTAH
@ VOL 19
ON SEP 23, 2014
Iman Fattah has been in the Indonesia's rock and experimental music world since approximately 15 years ago, as a guitarist in his own band; Zeke and the Popo and RAKSASA. Growing up, he never though music will be one of his greatest passion. In PechaKucha, Iman take us as he strips down music into one single element: sound. As an aspiring sound designer, he learned how to synchronize sound with visuals through film scoring project. 'Music' is not necessarily comes in 'band' form, instead, simple toe-tapping in dance rhythm is also music. The challenge in 'designing' sound is how far can we shape them, not only by hearing but also listening. Listen means paying more attention, so eventually we can create our own harmony.
BY MARTIN LUTZ

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.
The Chicago House Sound
BY NEIL STEVENSON
@ VOL 36
ON DEC 01, 2015
"The kick drum went through my chest, the bass line came up through the floor, the high hats and cymbals came fizzing from above ... when the smoke machine cleared, there were rich people, poor people, black, white, straight, gay ...and I thought, 'these are my people now, this is my music'."
In The Chicago House Sound from PechaKucha Night Chicago Vol. 36, IDEO's Neil Stevenson went on a quest to find the roots of House Music that, during its evolution from New York to Chicago and then in its momentum across Europe, he fell in love with. Here he shares that compelling quest and his love for Chicago House, its evolution, and the legacy of Frankie Knuckles.

A collector of sounds
BY WALTER KELLY
@ VOL 3
ON APR 02, 2019
Nature, music, art, literature, architecture, and technology all serve as inspirations, setting craft into motion. Guitar is the principal medium of composition and expression. Learning begins and continues with listening and communing in a vocational manner. Formal studies establish the language and practical application. My name is Walter Kelly. I am a collector of sounds.
