Sonic Interventionism, a workshop arranged by Mad Bech Paluszewski and MOKS, aimed to intervene objects and structures in public and leftover spaces in rural spaces. Converting them into special, temporary sound installations for exploration with own prepared materials, in order to perform a series of hit-and-run performances and concerts.

Location: Various sites in the areas in and around the village of Mooste in public space.

The inner meaning of Sonic Interventionism is about bending the acoustic and semiotic qualities of objects in public space. This is obtained by turning objects and structures into sounding units that can be used actively to enhance a sound environment within public space itself. Participants of this workshop will produce an ad hoc composition based on these interventions in public space. We'll be using acoustics as a physical, tactile and vibrational energy to adapt and distort the significance of everyday objects and structures in our surroundings. The approach can be described as a mix between street art interventionism, field recording and a somewhat nerdish sound exploration.
