• ‘Sonorous’: a sound art international collaboration



    Curatorial Statement

    'Scribble It Down' presents 'Sonorous', featuring artists from the UK, Germany, France, Malta, Macedonia, the US, Indonesia, and Israel, curated by Hagai Izenberg. Having dealt only with visual art till now, the 'Scribble It Down' project streams its method and spirit into the world of music and sound for the first time ever. This attempt called for a new scheme of workflow and needed a new approach from the ground up. Musicians and sound artists were invited to work collectively in digital format while embedding their individual artistic style into singular pieces. Through a sequential process, two groups of 4 artists worked together to create the musical pieces. Each artist contributes 30-60 seconds to a digital file, then transfers the work to the next artist, until each participant of the group has contributed to each piece. On every iteration the artists were given complete artistic freedom to manipulate any of the files received from the previous participant, as well as to add their own recordings and sounds. Sonorous establishes new forms of workflow between artists, and a unique creative process for working on a sound piece. Not knowing what will happen with your recordings as the next person gets them and works with them is both refreshing and intimidating. - Hagai Izenberg
