Art Fiction - The Speculative Future of Art, Music and Technology
Moritz Simon Geist throws all predictions on “market development” and “consumer behaviour” overboard and enters the speculative domain of “Art Fiction”.
In his 25-minute talk, he presents absurd devices-of-the-future and imaginary products for the yet unknown needs of our future self. This happens in the cross section of society and art - for a world in which brain interfaces, body enhancement and nanorobots (finally!) have become everyday items.
Without concern for feasibility and usability, an unbiased and critical view of current techniques and technological tendencies is formed.

From Unsound to the Symphony of Silence
Nik will speak about his latest sound installation "Infra Ultra" which is approaching the concept of an unsound system. "Unsound denotes a sonic frontier zone; a borderline at the fuzzy periphery of auditory perception, where sound is inaudible yet still capable of producing neuro-affects or physiological resonances, modulating both thought and the body" (Goodman, 2017). For Infra Ultra he recorded inaudible noises such as those emanating from bats, insects, wind turbines and electronic devices, pitching them into the bandwidth of human audibility (from 20Hz - 20kHz) and thus illuminating a hidden parallel reality. For his project, "Symphony of Silence", he travelled to North Korea in August 2017 to propose a piece of music based on the idea of anti-sound conceptualized for the site of the demarcation line between North and South Korea.
