> found objects & self-made instruments as creative and performable tools

picture taken by Ian Martinez during a workshop at Signals Festival (2021)

This workshop is an introduction to the creative uses and possibilities of found objects and self-made instruments within electronic and electroacoustic composition and performance. Split in two parts, the first half presents the work of a variety of artists that compose with such practices. After mapping a genealogy, the second half explores the various techniques and tools that one can use and combine with their objects for compositional and performing purposes. This includes a live hands-on demonstration by Pablo Diserens with a selection of microphones and objects (incl. from their 'Tetsu' series). Participants are also invited to bring found objets which produce sounds that they like in order to experiment with them. The workshop aims to spark ideas on how one can create their very own sets of sounds and how to implement them within their respective practice.

required from participants:
  • found objects (optional)

required from the venue:
  • set of loudspeakers
  • projector

> field recording



This workshop is an introduction to field recording and attentive listening practices. Split in two distinct parts, the first (theoretical) half explores the artistic and philosophical contexts of these practices along side their technicality with a plethora of audio examples from Pablo Diserens’ personal archive and recordings by other artists. The second (practical) half presents various recording techniques - with a wide range of recorders and microphones - and can be followed by a field recording trip in the workshop’s vicinity.

required from participants:
  • headphones
  • portable recorder (optional)
  • microphones (optional)

> deep and attentive listening

How does one learn how to listen? How do we develop a sense of care for our surroundings?
With this questions in mind, this workshop invites its participants to dive in the practices of deep and attentive listening as ways of connecting to the world and its non-human ecologies and rethinking our cohabitating methods. Most of us have seen pictures of the globe’s environments and dwellers, but how do they sound? In an attempt to raise awareness towards the importance of the act of listening, attendants will have the opportunity to listen to an array of sounds from animals and plants (biophony), and from natural forces and environments (geophony). Doing so can allow us to untrain our ears, shift our perspective and relationship to our surroundings, and develop an emotional bond with the planet’s various biomes.

The workshop can also be paired or organised as a soundwalk in a specific location.
It is suited and can be elaborated for both adult and kid attendants, and can also feature a playful and engaging structure.

required from the venue:
  • set of loudspeakers
  • projector
