ECHOLOT is a performance installation by Milena Kipfmüller and Klaus Janek which will be presented at the Goethe Institut, Montréal for Nuit Blanche on February 27, 2016.
On March 2, they will present a lecture performance at matralab that investigates ECHOLOT on a deeper level. In the lecture, they will analyze in a collective process the mechanism of semantic and musical reception, changing between discernible and non-discernible languages and abstract sound sources. What kind of meaning is lost and what kind of understanding is created?
