“Mind Sharpener” – tai gyvų, provokuojančių bei kviečiančių pamąstymams, pokalbių ir diskusijų serija, pradedant akademiniais tyrimais ir baigiant refleksijomis, kylančiomis iš profesinės praktikos. Nagrinėjamos temos nuo kalbos ištakų iki matematinių modelių, nuo autoritetų ugdyme iki skaitmeninių pasakojimų ir daug daugiau (išsamus buvusių įvykių sąrašas: https://davidecastiglione.com/mind-sharpener-series-public-talks/). Viskas, kas įkvepia, įtraukia ir suteikia informacijos, pristatoma su kompetenciją ir aistra. Pagrindinė idėja – pateikti profesionalias ir savamoksles žinias, spekuliatyvių tyrimų ir praktika pagrįstos introspekcijos vaisius plačiai ir įvairiapusiškai auditorijai: tau!

Čia galima būti ne tik klausytojais, bet ir aktyviais dalyviais, kelti klausimus, siūlyti sprendimus, įsitraukti į užduotis ir viktorinas. Tai turėtų būti visiems naudinga patirtis. Iki šiol taip buvo!

Viskas vyksta jaukioje neformalioje aplinkoje su puodeliu kavos ar vyno taure.

Visi renginiai transliuojami mūsų Facebooko puslapyje.

MUSIC “VS” SOUND ART

by Yiorgis Sakellariou

This talk will ask the question: What is the difference between music and sound art?

In recent years, sound art has been popularized within contemporary art contexts. Furthermore, the term is often used to describe musical works that exclude the more traditional elements of melody, rhythm and harmony and, instead, utilize non-musical sounds and noise.
In this talk, Yiorgis Sakellariou will interrogate the similarities and differences between music and sound art, as he has been exploring them through his artistic experience and research. He will focus on the relation between sound, time and space, the perception and influence of audio and visual stimuli, the comparison of musical performances, most commonly presented in concert halls, and sound installations, usually set up in galleries and museums. Moreover, he will discuss the current position of sound art within higher education.

Spoiler alert: There will not be a specific answer to the primary question as it is not possible to draw a distinct line between music and sound art. Nevertheless, the aim of the talk will be to stimulate thoughts, to generate discourse, to increase our knowledge and understanding about the two fields of creative practice and, ultimately, engage more profoundly with sonic phenomena, musical or artistic.

Yiorgis Sakellariou is a composer of experimental and electroacoustic music. Since 2003, he has been active internationally being responsible for solo and collaboration albums, having composed music for short films and theatrical performances, leading workshops and ceaselessly performing his music around the globe. He completed his PhD at Coventry University (April 2018). His research drew inspiration from ethnomusicological and anthropological contexts and explored the sonic symbolism and socio-aesthetic settings in ecstatic religious rituals in relation to field recording, electroacoustic composition and acousmatic performance. He is a member of the Athenian Contemporary Music Research Centre, the Hellenic Electroacoustic Music Composers Association and the Lithuanian Composers Union. Since 2004 he has curated the label Echomusic. He is currently a lecturer at VDU and an assistant lecturer at LMTA.
