Page Not Found welcomes you to the second event in the cycle ‘Reverberations’. Musicians and publishers James Hoff and Félicia Atkinson present vibrant printed matter alongside sonic performances.
-The event will take place from 19:00 as planned. As the new covid measures make an exception for cultural events, we will be able to gather past 20:00.
-As audiences must be seated for cultural events, space is limited. Be sure to arrive on time to secure a spot!
-At the door we will ask for your QR-code and do a health check. We will adhere to 1,5m distance and stay seated throughout the event. If you’re not feeling well or have covid-related symptoms, please stay home (even if you’re vaccinated!)
During the evening, James Hoff will share new audio works that are composed from musical ‘earworms’ and tinnitus. Both are auditory phantoms that are antagonized by or echoing from ambient media. The works are biographical to the artist’s experience and aesthetically resemble a cinematic soundtrack utilizing chamber instruments. Félicia Atkinson will read from her book A Forest Petrifies. Inspired by the Petrified Forest in Arizona and its ability to change over time from an organic to a mineral state, this story was conceived over the past five years, while its on-going writing has been the starting point of many of Atkinson’s music lyrics and recent records and exhibitions. To conclude James and Félicia will join in conversation.
Reverberations explores the vivid intersection between visual and sonic arts and presents artists and musicians whose practice equally embraces music, publishing and contemporary art. Such rich cross-disciplinary practices often echo from self-organised initiatives like music labels or press houses, which allow spontaneity, experimentation and independency from corporate structures.
James Hoff is an artist living and working in Brooklyn, N.Y. His work encompasses a variety of media, including painting, sound, and performance, as well as a publishing practice with the organization Primary Information, which he co-founded and edits. In recent years, his work has focused on language and ambient media at the intersection of developing technologies and networked communication in relation to social/political space. He has released two records on PAN (How Wheeling Feels When the Ground Walks Away and BLASTER) as well as the audio visual project HOBO UFO (v. Chernobyl), which will also be released as a book and record in 2022.
Félicia Atkinson is a French musician and artiste and the co-founder of the independent record label / publishing platform Shelter Press together with Bartolomé Sanson. Shelter Press builds up dialogues between contemporary art, poetry and experimental music through printed publications and records. Image Language is the name of Atkinson’s upcoming album and new live set. Her music is a whirl of electroacoustic/MIDI sounds, field recordings, improvised text, grand piano and Fender Rhodes, defining a mental landscape composed of abstract and figurative narratives. Her latest releases are Everything Evaporate ( Shelter Press 2020) and Echo (Boomkat Editions 2020). She has played since 15 years in various contexts such as Atonal Berlin, Unsound Krakow, Ultima Oslo, Issue Project Room New York, Semi Breve Braga, The Barbican London, Le Guess Who Utrecht, Rewire Den Hague, La Philharmonie de Paris and Presence Electronique GRM. Her musical work is published by Mute Song.
