From october 27th to 29th 2023 the project LAND.SCHAFFT.SOUND. invites sound enthusiasts to a practical workshop on the subject of "landscapes after mines in Upper Lusatia". Opencast mining in Saxony has made the greatest changes to the earth's surface since the ice age. After the opencast mines were closed in the early 1990, a comprehensive "remediation" of the landscape took place and is still taking place. The cleared opencast mines, like the mining areas that are still in operation, are to become leisure landscapes. We want to embark on a sound journey and listen carefully, start a conversation, capture the atmosphere. Under the heading "follow-up landscapes", the focus should be on producing at the weekend. Whether field recordings, audio collages or interviews - the participants have the opportunity to get to know different aspects of audio production and to deal with different approaches.
Saturday will be dedicated to exploring, producing and exchanging. After a soundwalk by Lena Löhr and short inputs by Dr. Grit Ruhland, Konrad Behr, Alwin Weber and Patrick Franke, it's up to you. Go out and listen, collect and create.
On Sunday, the audio pieces will be completed and we will have a listen and a short summary of the weekend in the afternoon.
We look forward to a lively exchange and a good time with you.
