Live: Tarab (Eamon Sprod), Felicity Mangan, Gregory Büttner

15.02.2020 (Samstag) 20:30 - 23:45


1000füssler & Fragment Factory present an evening of sonic live
interventions and Klangkunst extraordinaire.

For nearly 20 years, tarab has been the alias of Melbourne, AUS based Eamon
Sprod. Since the early 2000's he explores re-contextualised collected sounds
and tactile gestures formed into dynamic, psycho-geographical compositions
inspired by discarded things, found things, crawling around in the dirt,
junk, the ground, rocks, dust, wind, walking aimlessly, scratchy things,
decay and most if not all the things he hears and sees. More than simply
documenting a given site, TARAB is interested in a direct engagement with
our surrounds, teasing out half narratives, visceral sensation, false leads
and heightened awareness. Recent works have consisted of multi-channel, site
responsive performances and installations for speakers, transducers, found
sounds, found things, microphones and elements of the
performance/installation space itself. TARAB's compositional works have been
published on labels including Unfathomless (BE), 23five (US), Crónica (PT),
Aposiopèse (FR) and also his own sonicrubbish imprint formed in 2018.

throughout Europe (SMK - Statens Museum for Kunst, Berlin Atonal, CTM
