beyond beyond is a temporal space for sound to meet different surfaces and contexts.  surfaces that listen, absorb and reflect. 

what is told, what is heard, what activates active listening?

through varied sonic approaches and engagements, a listener asks, “what is beyond beyond?”

No Day Off (AKA The Official Scoh’ For The Film Which Is Yet To Exist):

After their mother leaves early to work on a weekend shift, Letšatši receives one task for the day: don’t forget to take the chicken out of the freezer. After spending the day alone at home and being easily distracted by this freedom and daily going ons, the realization of their mother coming home and impending trouble sets in.

Listenings by Gretchen Blegen

 

Watch for water! are listenings that resonate with a river and its downstream.  (the absence of a mouth).  spending time with the Rio de las Animas Perdidas, a landscape that is both familiar and haunting to my body and lungs, I watch and listen for water.  with an emphasis on language these listenings engage with tellings, re-tellings, slippages, translation and telepathy echoing past imaginings and re-imaginings of Place and context. segments of the listenings will be presented in ausland, sediments will be further developed into guided audio walks in September 2021. 

Remote Viewing Reports (a telepathic channeling exchange) were developed in close exchange with and written by Catalina Insignares and Carolina Mendonça,

Soundings by Hila Lahav

 

Backbone Flute: Sketches for future resuscitation | for flutes, pipes and help

 

For all of you, whom I fancied or still do,

Treasured like icons in my soul’s catacomb,

Like a glass of wine on a festive toast

I am raising a skull full of verse.

 

- Vladimir Mayakovsky | Prologue from Backbone Flute 1915

(english version: Fani Schwarz)

 

Hila Lahav is a musician and a writer, currently living in Berlin.  She plays flutes, pipes, tubes, winds and other hollow vessels, writing in mother tongues and translating into them.
