HACK THE PANKE Festival
Workshop | Ariel Orah and Johanes “Mo’ong” Santoso Pribadi (Soydivision Kollektiv)
Art Laboratory Berlin welcomes you to participate in the HACK THE PANKE Festival with various events like workshops, film screenings and walks on art, science and sound in Berlin-Wedding.
Leftover Klangwerk is a socially engaged and sonic art creation activity in the form of a participatory workshop and collective improvisation performance. The title is inspired by the English word “Leftover” refers to waste and the German word “Klangwerk” which means “sound creation”. The workshop was divided into three major parts. In the first part, participants will collect different kinds of waste objects from specific neighborhoods (based on the understanding of the characteristics and also the social-political history of that specific neighborhood). The second part will be building those waste materials into several self-made instruments. The third part will be presenting the instruments in an improvisation music performance. Inspired by circular design/upcycling methodology, both workshop and performance will introduce and invite the community to channel a form of freedom in the form of sound through the sound-making object, without the limitations of conventional music.
This project will be facilitated by Ariel Orah and Johanes “Mo’ong” Santoso Pribadi from the Berlin-based Indonesian art collective Soydivision.
