Event Details

With each breath I send sound and receive sound 
Pauline Oliveros 

A sine wave oscillator acts as the symbol for KOOKOO’s 15tha anniversary. Visual artist CARLY FISCHER has reimagined it in the form of a cardboard sculpture, making reference to the music and practice of composer Pauline Oliveros. The ideator of deep listening began to explore her concept of communication and existence through sound by tuning some oscillators above the range of human hearing. She moved along the fringes of audibility, with frequencies resonating through bodies, disappearing from the auditory spectrum, but still there, somewhere, responding to each other, like phantoms, between past and present.

As far as the sending part of Pauline Oliveros‘ philosophy is concerned, perhaps you, the audience of KOOKOO, will be able to tell us how we have managed so far. As for receiving, 15 years after we started KOOKOO, in the summer of 2009, we feel blessed. Humbled. Incredibly lucky. Amazed by the support and dedication that friends have shown us over the years, by the commitment and touching performances that musicians and artists have gifted to us, by the response of the people who actually make a night special. You.

We’re delighted to be celebrating all this with a line-up that we didn’t even dare to dream about. And we’re happy to say: 

Thank you, 
Mieko Suzuki & Arno Raffeiner
