Date: Sat, Aug 16 to Sun, Aug 17, 11-17:00
Location: Water basin, Main MQ Courtyard
New Adventures in Sound Art (NAISA) is a presenter of sound art in Toronto, Canada. Darren Copeland, artistic director of NAISA, curated a program with Canadian sound art works for TONSPUR_live_open_air_2014 that will be presented in a site-specific eight-channel sound structure around the reflecting pool in the Main Courtyard of the MuseumsQuartier Wien. The works are representative of a ten-year presentation period during which NAISA produced sound works involving radio art, sound art, and field recording compositions by artist from all over Canada. Some of these works were produced for the three NAISA festivals “Deep Wireless”, “Sound Travels”, and “SOUNDplay”. In addition to the performance of this program, a Canadian Artist-in-Residence at the quartier21/MQ will create a new piece specially for the unique installation situation in the Main MQ Courtyard.

With the catalogue REM 1:1, a comprehensive collection of works by Argentine-Austrian artist Juliana Herrero, alongside reviews and up-to-date documentation, is now provided for the first time. In her pieces, Juliana Herrero contrasts visual impressions with sound spaces. With her interventions, she is probing the boundaries of provocation, concentrated perception, and the utopian. Her installations indicate a novel conceptual development in that they are, despite being static, setting free a kinetic energy in their dialogue between analog and digital technology through vibrations of sound.

TONSPUR 75_lost: ROBERT ADRIAN (1935-2015). Roberto Paci Dalò (ITA): LONG NIGHT TALKS. FOR ROBERT ADRIAN
8-channel sound installation and 7-part poster series in the TONSPUR_passage
Opening: Sun, Jul 30, 17:00
LONG NIGHT TALKS. FOR ROBERT ADRIAN is the new work by Italian artist Roberto Paci Dalò created during his residency at TONSPUR - Q21/ MQ in July 2017.
The piece is composed of an 8-channel sound work and 7 images. In addition to it, the ORF commissioned a radiowork to be broadcasted on Ö1 Radiokunst Kunstradio on the opening night.
The piece is dedicated to Robert Adrian X (1935-2015), a pioneer in art and telecommunications. The Canadian artist lived in Vienna since 1972 and his contribution to the art world has been also witnessed by a large retrospective at Kunsthalle Wien back in 2001. Adrian received the Prize of The City of Vienna in 1993, and the Austrian Art Prize in 2011. He was awarded the Nam June Paik Art Center Prize in 2009.
Through more than two decades Adrian and Paci Dalò shared a close friendship also working together on several projects including a film Paci Dalò especially created for Adrian's major retrospective. The two used to sit in Adrian's studio in the Wiedner Hauptstraße and share long night talks dicussing passionately art, radio, transmission, technologies, web, surveillance, sound, warfare, and conflicts.
In LONG NIGHT TALKS. FOR ROBERT ADRIAN, Roberto Paci Dalò worked on Adrian's voice using it as a main material for the installation. The visitors will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the grain of the voice together with field recordings, instrumental and electronics sounds. A journey into fascinating times and experiences where visitors are surrounded by sounds in the unique TONSPUR multi-channel audio environment.
Parallel to the sound work, the artist created a series of 7 drawings conceived as a constellation: A nocturnal sky which is also a graphic score for the piece. The seven drawings reflect the 7 days of an imaginary week together with Robert Adrian in his studio in Vienna's Wiedner Hauptstraße.
A daily journal of Paci Dalò's residency at Q21 (images, texts, sounds) is online at: robertopacidalo.com
Books and records of the artist are available at Buchhandlung Walther König at MuseumsQuartier.
