the corridor no. 1 – Linear Belongings

Sep 17th –  Sep 30th, 2017 in Belfast, Dundalk, Drogheda, Dublin and Cologne

LINEAR BELONGINGS opens with the sound survey Belfast-Dublin a perennial, interdisciplinary cooperation between THE CORRIDOR (Dundalk) and the 1. DEUTSCHES STROMORCHESTER (1st GERMAN ELECTROPHONIC ORCHESTRA, Cologne) which explores, defines and performs vertical and horizontal territories outside of politics, religion, borders and barriers.

The survey of the tangent Belfast-Dundalk-Drogheda-Dublin – a common cultural area which will be divided by the external border of the European Union in the near future – is, for the Cologne edition, liberated from its territory and transformed into the physical vertical.

Directly following the intervention in Ireland, a simultaneous sound-space-orchestration on the five stacked levels of the tower of LTK4 – Klangbasierte Künste Köln will take place. The performance made of sounding and visually found objects, space-related compositions and site-specific improvisations as well as medial materials and partially fractured textures interlocks the positions of the participants from Northern Ireland, the Republic and Germany and is curated by Anne Mager and Rochus Aust.
