DISCOGRAPHISME RÉCRÉATIF (FR)— exhibition
Discographisme recreatif is both a documentary and collectional work begun in 1996 by French activist Patrice Caillet, developing an ongoing work on involuntary artistic practices and the crossover margins between pop culture and contemporary art. Composed of different iconographic montages made from record sleeves mostly found at flea markets, the covers composing Discographisme Récréatif all have been redone or modified by anonymous individuals using the original covers as a guideline and as a source of inspiration. With two books already published, some of these sleeves will be presented for Imaginary musics from a selection of Collection Morel.
PAUL PAULUN (DE), “NOIZ, ST. GALLEN” — installation
Sound research engineer and audio collector Paul Paulun presents for Imaginary musics, Noiz, a sound sculpture of 72 songs, 4 hours and 47 minutes, exploring the art of noises from the soundscape movement (Murray Schafer) background, and acknowledges the musical qualities of environmental occurrences, which can be deciphered in the listener’s mind as imaginary musics. A similar listening experience can be found within the field of noise music, revealing in moments some otherwise inaudible acoustic phenomena and new listening impressions, which Paul Paulun explores within this installation, under the parameters: noise-like sounds (geräuschhaft), liveliness, poeticism and abstractness.
Paul Paulun is a sound research engineer, an audio collector, a writer on the most imaginable diverse topics within the spectrum and much more. In 2013 he curated the exhibition “Wir sind hier nicht zum Spaß” about collective subcultural structures in 90s Berlin at Kunstraum Kreuzberg/Bethanien (Berlin). Since 2014 he has been presenting unusual radiophonic miniatures in the magazine ”Kompressor” on Deutschlandradio.
