Tan Bone (Sound Pot) ver.2
Objects, Chairs, 2-Channel-Sound Installation, Web-App

Collaborative Sound Art Project by Kam Seng Aung, Joshua Weitzel and Samuel Cho. 

 

Opening Sound Art Festival Trier 2021
TUFA Trier, July 24 - August 15, 2021.

 

Tan Bone ver. 2 puts five original pots in the centre of attention. Those pots have been used for acoustic protest in Myanmar following the military plot in February 2021. The owners of the pots have all been murdered by the military in the course of the violent crackdown of the social disobedience movement. The pots were graciously given to the artists by the families of the martyrs. The installation is accompanied by a 2-channel sound installation of field recordings of the pots-and-pan protest in February, as well as an interactive web-app made by Samuel Cho, which gives background information on the people behind the pots.

Tan Bone (Sound Pot)
4-Channel Sound Installation / Sound Sculpture

Collaborative Sound Art project with Kam Seng Aung (Myanmar) and Samuel Cho (Saarbrücken).


Marburger Kunstverein, 2021.

 

 

 

Pieces that address the struggle of the people in Myanmar against the fascist coup, but also form a solidaric gesture in the tradition of Cacerolazo. Four generic Woks are turned into loudspeakers with transducers and play a four-channel sound piece comprised of four different days in the end of February and beginning of March 2021 in Yangon, Myanmar, recorded by Kam Seng Aung. 

 

 

Solidarity Noise (2021) 

 

Solidarity Noise is a social sound sculpture initiated and facilitated by Kam Seng Aung, Joshua Weitzel and Samuel Cho. Taking the idea of the pots-and-pans-protest against the military coup in Myanmar, musicians, sound artists and other solidaric people from over 40 countries sent some "noise".

 

Published on CD 20 of the german society of electroacoustic music (degem). 

 

This noise from the international artist community is a gesture of solidarity towards the people of Myanmar and their struggle for democracy and justice.
