The Sonic Extremes of the MaerzMusik Festival

“The programming emphasized experiences that sprawl beyond conventional time frames and engulf the consciousness.” Alex Ross has watched our streams and written for The New Yorker about MaerzMusik 2021, talking about among others the music of Jessie Cox (as part of this year's focus on Halim El-Dabh 💛 SAVVY Contemporary) and Ensemble Modern's “Afro-Modernism in Contemporary Music”, curated by George Lewis, as well as our closing project TIMEPIECE. Check it out here! ↓

"What I love about music is it connects me with the universe. It puts me in contact with every human being. Music is not just what your ear can hear, but what your body can experience. Every human being has a gesture, and that gesture explains your life history in a way — the way you use the body. There are thousands of gestures to explain a culture of a society, between the gesture, which I’m very interested to learn, and the relation to sound, a fantastic tool to become liberated and find yourself."

–– Halim El-Dabh

Your body begins listening before you walk through our door: Matana Robert’s sound quilt composition „Laying Track“, created for this exhibition, plays inside and out. This particular sound quilt is inspired by Halim El-Dabh, paying particular attention to his archival process that revolved around a longtime interest in field recordings, travel research, and constant interest in cultural immersion for the basis of sonic witness, appreciation and immersive understanding. The main sonic fabric herein includes a variety of field recordings that the artist has made while doing extensive travel stateside and abroad for her ongoing durational project called “Coin Coin”.

What Does Time Politics Sound Like? - Berliner Festspiele Blog

What does time politics sound like? How do we perceive time that has been mediated by regulation? Ultimately, what is our contemporary social perception of time? In the third contribution on our series “Time and Listening”, Nico Daleman looks back at TIMEPIECE, the 27-hour final project of MaerzMusik 2021 and reflects on the political dimensions of time concepts.
“What TIMEPIECE renders visible is the very beating heart of a specific kind of time concept and time practice, the clock-based time.” (Berno Odo Polzer)

About the festival / Über das Festival

MaerzMusik 2020: 20. - 29. März

MaerzMusik – Festival for Time Issues, directed by Berno Odo Polzer since 2015, is an international festival of sound-based art forms. It explores contemporary music and enquires into the particular modes of time-perception made possible by current forms of musical expression. In this context, music is always seen as a medium of open boundaries, in consonance with contemporary art production, discourse, performance and film. The festival is intended to be a place for encounters, for the communication of experiences and ideas, seeing time as a central category of the political.
