*Interflugs attempts to offer emancipatory spaces to tackle discrimination!

* Workshop is FREE and will be taught in English
Participants will produce music exploring and experimenting with the timbre and sound patterns of animal sounds. During the spring and summer time you can hear many amazing inspiring sounds for music production in Berlin’s nature reserves and park lands. Including the nightingale bird that returns to Berlin in the spring time and the Skylarks that nest in a protected breeding ground at Tempelhof airport. During the workshop helpful tips will be shared by an experienced field recorder and electronic music composer. Participants will be able to utilize field recordings and animal sounds as instrumentation in their own music compositions. Field recordings can be captured by a mobile phone recording device or sampled from a prerecorded archive of animal sounds provided by the workshop artist.
FELICITY MANGAN is an Australian sound artist and composer based in
Berlin since 2008. In different situations such as solo performance, collaborative projects with other musicians or installation, Felicity plays her found native Australian wildlife archive and other field recordings, either through a stereophonic system or often via hand-made speakers made with piezo transducers and found objects – exploring the timbre and forms of found and self-recorded animal voices while
mimicking biophonic patterns to create minimal quasi-bioacoustic environments. Felicity has recently played in collaborative projects
Native Instrument (Shelter Press, Entr’acte) with vocalist Stine Janvin Joh and Plants and Animalia with Christina Ehrl Shirley. Felicity has also released a solo publication on Longform Editions titled Stereo’frog’ic, a play on the word stereophonic – presenting a sound piece, crafted from found recordings of frogs, insects and other ‘vocal’ animals wavering about in a stereo field. Felicity has presented projects in many different settings from galleries, gardens, clubs and festivals throughout Europe. Including National Gallery Denmark, Technosphärenklänge CTM/HKW and Sonic Act Academy 2020.
