RIVERSSSOUNDS is a platform for virtual sonic experiences and an online residency program.
RIVERSSSOUNDS invites you to navigate the rivers of Europe via the microphones of sound artists. By using digital tools and artistic imagination, RIVERSSSOUNDS is a virtual portal for connecting the physical realities of different cities through sound.
A river is a constant flow. It crosses borders yet remains a steady contour on a map, even as borders change. A river is a part of the fabric of cities, generating specific industries, recreational activities, and cultural identities. Nevertheless, a river itself is not belonging. Rather, it runs across the land, constantly reminding us of how much we share in spite of borders.
RIVERSSSOUNDS unites sound artists working with soundscapes and field recording. Each month the platform hosts up to three online residents from different European countries that are based in cities with a river. The residents collaborate to create sound works reflecting the identity of the river in their cities. In addition, each resident holds an artist talk, contributes to the sound library with field recordings of their river and a soundwalk. Final artworks are presented each month online.
For the first edition, the platform will host 16 monthly residencies from December 2020 until June 2021.
Сuratorial team: Zhan Pobe, Anna Khvyl, Anamaria Pravicencu
RIVERSSSOUNDS is iorganized by DZESTRA (Chernivtsi, UA) in partnership with SEMI SILENT / Asociaţia Jumătatea plină (Bucharest, RO) and supported by the European Union under the House of Europe programme.
