To mark the 100th anniversary of the foundation of the First Armenian Republic, Yerevan will host the “International Contemporary Art Exhibition: Armenia 2018. Soundlines of Contemporary Art”, which from September 25 to October 25 will engage the capital city with more than fifty international artists exhibiting in seven different locations around the city…

“Soundlines of Contemporary Art”, curated by Mazdak Faiznia and Marina Hakobyan and created and organized by Shaula International LLC, is held under the high patronage of the Presidency of Armenia and the patronage of the Canadian Government, the Ministry of Culture of Armenia, the Ministry of Cultural Activities and Tourism of Italy, the cultural promotional project of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Italy Vivere All’italiana, the Italian Embassy in Armenia. The event is further supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Armenia, the EU Delegation to Armenia and the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU).

Composer and sonic artist Roland Emile Kuit at the Aram Khachaturian Museum

Composer and sonic artist Roland Emile Kuit is considered a pioneer of the art form generally referred to as “sound installation”. He taught this form of audio art at the Vrije Academie The Hague, and introduced this sonic art to the installation area. A metamorphosis from the traditional speaker boxes into ‘sonic spaces’.

Kuit’s sonic work ranges from experimental sound-architectural installations to acousmatic performances, often in cooperation with artists, designers and scientists. Kuit is researching chaotic systems, sound at atomic levels, morphology and decision-making processes beyond algorithm and stochastic approaches.

Kuit lectures, performs/exhibits worldwide at universities, art galleries, museums and creative hubs.

ACRYLIC INTONATIONS – Roland Emile Kuit

Kuit was this year at the SONO Studios in Prague recording his latest work ‘Tactile Utterance’ for Tomas Rajlich with the Fama Q String Quartet. Kuit had the opportunity to record a painting Tomas Rajlich in his atelier. For this occasion, Kuit had brought his ZOOM H6 recorder and connected 4 contact microphones to the canvas. As Rajlich was working, proportioning out and shaping the acrylic paint, Kuit managed to seize this sonic autograph in paint of Tomas Rajlich.

These recordings were taken back to the Netherlands to Kuit’s studio. Here he had to find ways to deal with these raw recordings. The idea was to create a quadraphonic sonic art space by processing the material into sonic art. Roland used the Kyma system to analyse these sounds in the spectral realm.

As Rajlich is modifying the appearance, hardness, flexibility, texture, and other characteristics of the paint surface, Kuit had to find a way to work likewise. Kuit’s idea of working in the spectral realm is that he can add more ways to deconstruct sound. He has now the possibility to separate frequencies, amplitudes and time, reconstructing sounds composing new textures.

Image

Kuit created from acrylic sounds the spectra used by Oscillator Banks of 256 separate oscillators. Each oscillator is associated with a partial from the time-varying spectrum given in the Spectrum field. As a result this data is modulated and articulated into the ‘sonic space’. Air as canvas, acrilyc has a voice now.

The exhibition will have an official catalogue in two volumes and in English, published by Manfredi Edizioni, with opening sections by the President of the Republic of Armenia, the Minister of Culture of Armenia, the curators Mazdak Faiznia and Marina Hakobyan, and Shaula International LLC.

When all is set up and running at the exhibition.

"Furthermore, an educational section will include several workshops in some of the leading art institutions of Armenia such as Tumo Center for Creative Technologies, Terlemezyan Institute, and State Fine Art Academy, held by, among others, Roberto Pugliese, Roland Emile Kuit, Abdoulaye Diarrassouba, and Victor Ehikhamenor."

First teaching at the TUMO center for Art & Technology in Yerevan, directing students to a sonic work of art.

Some more information about the learning lab of the TUMO CENTER FOR CREATIVE TECHNOLOGIES.

They came far with my instructions:

Soundmapping Yerevan

How do you perceive the sounds around you? Composer and sonic artist Roland Kuit will be leading a learning lab to teach you the art of sound mapping cities.

NEW SONIC FORMS

"As a European based composer - sonic artist, I am approaching Yerevan with an open ear, not knowing what to hear, meet or find here. I feel the philosophy and arts have roots into the long history of this country. Armenia proofs with the TUMO Center where education, culture and science meet in such a special way, that this form of learning is working and even expanse to other counties through the world.
I find this mindset in the ICAE2018 of Shaula International LLC too.
A courageous way to blend new forms in arts and new cultures in this wonderful event "Soundlines of Contemporary Art".
As composer - artist, I am creating new forms by sound research and morphology. My exhibition in the A. Khachaturian House Museum will be a perfect audible example for under these colors as I blend painting and sound together in the audio sculpture "Acrylic Intonations". For this occasion I recorded the painting proces of Tomas Rajlich. By analizing these sounds, I could re-synthesis these processes into a new form whereby time, frequency, amplitude and space are dealt with seperately, and therefore having the possibilliy to seize new sonic shapes.
Thank you ICEA2018 for such an exciting amalgamation of the International Arts. And my gratitude towards the A. Khachaturian House Museum, one of the seven locations of this exhibition, for beeing such beautifull environment for this dialogue in art." - Roland Kuit
