Room “s” sounds


February 13, 2018 till February 22, 2018


Room “s” sounds: Workshop and presentation of works in progress using audio score as a source of performing

The participant artists will collect sound recordings from different places and spaces in the surroundings to zoom acoustically. These sound collections will be the basic material for the following creations. They can be used not only as soundscapes but also as audio scores. We’ll work on different processes of translation and transfer the audio material into different artistic languages. After the

workshop, the participants will present their creations in an interdisciplinary and open-end collage form.

This event is a third phase of the interdisciplinary music theater project with Pro Helvetia Cairo. It is based on the idea of Barblina Meierhans, composer, sound artist, and Wael Sami Elkholy, the artistic director of the IMTGC project, composer, singer, and performer.

Elkholy initiated the IMTGC – Interdisciplinary Music Theater Group Cairo and had started the project under the patronage of Pro Helvetia Cairo in 2016.

Room “s“ sounds project is formed of a workshop and works in progress presentation in collaboration with the Swiss composer and sound artist Barblina Meierhans.

The workshop takes place at the Egyptian center for culture and arts (Makan) from February the 13 till the 22, and it is held mainly for IMTGC members in cooperation with Music Composer Atelier.
