Acts of Listening Messene was the second part of the AOL pilot project – a co production project between Tsonami Festival in Valparaiso 2017 and the 4th edition of Tuned City, taking place in the ancient town Messenia/Greece 2018.
A group of artists from Europe and South America started to work in Valparaiso in 2017 reflecting on sound as a contextual phenomenon of urban space and continued the process in Messene. This group worked in between the places and other scheduled program points in very site specific formats including performances, interventions, installations in relation to the topics.
The Acts of Listening group again circled around Tuned City like a satellite, injecting, adding, commenting, extending, blurring, questioning and challenging the proceedings.
The research group was Cristian Espinoza (CL), Barbara Gonzalez (CL), Nicolas Spencer (CL), Franziska Windisch (DE), Florian Tuercke (DE) and Rene Rissland (DE). AOL is initiated and moderated by Fernando Godoy (CH) and Pablo Saavedra Arevalo (CL).
