Rewire x Ultima: Fluid Formations

Friday 13 September 2024 — 12:00

Rewire is excited to announce Fluid Formations at Ultima festival in Oslo on September 13 and 14. Ultima’s context programme Fluid Formations brings artists, researchers, practitioners and audience members together in a two-day gathering of communal listening and thinking in and around Oslo’s Vega Scene cinema.
Invited artists engage with the multispecies ecologies we are part of, and the histories that continue to resonate with and affect us today. The programme asks how to listen to our environment against the background of ongoing geopolitical crises and an accelerating climate emergency. How to understand ourselves as ‘fluid formations’? 

Over the two days, participants will engage with different listening positions, while addressing questions around music and migration, environmental listening, and the voice as a (political) instrument. Alternating between conversations (confluences), listening sessions (tributaries), film screenings (streams) and radio interviews (waves), the programme asks how gathering around music and sound can encourage empathy and solidarity with others, especially in the present difficult times.   

Fluid Formations is presented in collaboration with Rewire and is curated by Katía Truijen. The film programme is curated by international film festival MIRAGE in Oslo. 

Participants include Andreas Kühne, Ash Kilmartin, Berno Odo Pölzer, Chris Watson, Giada Dalla Bontà, Jana Winderen, Katya García-Antón, Marialena Marouda (The Oceanographies Institute), Megan-Leigh Heilig, Nischal Khadka, Radna Rumping, Raven Chacon, Polina Medvedeva, Tony Myatt, Sarah Zahid. The complete programme will be announced in August. 

In collaboration with Rewire, MIRAGE, Norsk Komponistforening, Radio WORM and Vega Scene. Supported by Creative Europe Programme of the European Union as part of Sounds Now.
