Beginning: 5 PM

Dear friends and supporters of the Frontiers of Solitude project:

We would like to express our thanks to all who have supported and contributed to the expeditions in Northern Bohemia and Iceland. To mark the end of traveling around the open pits we are organizing an informal meeting in the Osek Monastery on September 25 (starting at 5pm). It would be a pleasure if you could join us. The event will look back at the three-week-long Czech expedition program, including a presentation of the Icelandic expedition by means of photographs by its participants.

Program

5 PM: Impressions, sounds and videos from the journeys across the Most Basin and Iceland (Dagmar Šubrtová, Miloš Vojtěchovský, Pavel Mrkus, Martin Zet, Michal Kindernay, and others).

7 PM: Concert for double bass and live electronics by George Cremaschi. georgecremaschi.com

7:30 PM: Sound performance by Laura Luna, inspired by the process of coal mining. We will explore with imaginary field recordings the strange ambivalence that this place and towns surrounding theml. We will use motors, gravel, rocks and coal on a small scale to produce the “field recordings”, and merge them with our idealized perceptions of the processes that we see happening in and around the huge open pits. soundcloud.com/laulucas

8 PM: Concert for organ at the Monastery Church.

Participants and collaborators of the Frontiers of Solitude project (Dagmar Šubrtová, Miloš Vojtěchovský, Michal Kindernay, and Dominik Žižka).
