Dear friends and supporters of the Frontiers of Solitude project:
We would like to extend our thanks for your participation and support of the expeditions in Most and Iceland. To celebrate the end of the traveling around the open pits there we will have a program in Osek Monastery, with refreshments. It would be a pleasure if you could join us. The event will look back over the three week long Czech residency program with images and the participants of the Iceland residency.
5 PM: Impressions, sound and video from the journeys in the Most basin and Iceland (Dagmar Šubrtová, Miloš Vojtěchovský, Pavel Mrkus, Martin Zet, Michal Kindernay, and others).
7 PM: A concert for double bass and live electronics by George Cremaschi.
7:30 PM: Sound performance by Laura Luna, inspired by the process of mining coal. We will try to explore with imaginary field recordings the strange ambivalence that these mines and the towns surrounding them makes us feel. We will use motors, gravel, rocks and coal on a small scale to produce the “field recordings”, and merge them with our idealized perceptions of the processes that we see happening in and around the huge open pits.
8 PM: Concert for organ in the Monastery Church.
