ARCO 2013 / Escucha Pública (Public Listening) #3. How can we portray a person with sound? with Nacho Arias

Radio Sures

Saturday 16 February at 7 pm

Radio Sures is an a la carte web radio for radio documentaries. With no extra photos or supporting videos or multimedia bonus features. We stand for telling stories exclusively with sound resources! We illustrate this aesthetic stance each month in a public gathering devoted to listening. We offer a selection of sound narrative documentaries, in Spanish and other languages, with translations planned. We listen in the half-light, seated or lying down, as if we were a cinema audience for a movie with no pictures. Orson Welles might have said it: “Radio is better than the movies because in radio, the screen’s bigger”.

In each session a guest joins us to share his or her point of view (and hearing) about the documentaries we have heard. Not sound or radio experts, our guests come from other fields of creative endeavours such as cinema, painting, photography, literature, theatre, and so on. Instead of an analysis, they share their sensations and impressions as auditors. Their contributions create bridges between sound and other artistic disciplines.

For the third session, our guest is photographer Nacho Arias.
We will reflect on “How to portray a person with sound”. We are not talking about ID photos but rather portraits taken from an auteur point of view. The person behind the camera or microphone leaves all pretensions of objectivity aside in order to transmit his or her own perception of the person portrayed. In this creative process, the person becomes a “character”.

Nacho Arias has a degree from the Fine Arts School at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid. He has worked as a photographer for over 15 years. He has shown his work at museums, galleries and art centres including the Círculo de Bellas Artes, La Casa de América and the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Madrid. His work has also been selected at festivals such as PhotoSpain, Emergentes (Braga, Portugal), and the 2010 International Vienna Festival. At present he is working on several series that will be completed in 2013.

Colectivo Cine sin Autor (Authorless Cinema Group)

Space to meet and show work processes. From Tuesday to Sunday during Intermediae opening hours.

Screening of works in progress. Wednesday 27 February at 6 pm at Cineteca.

The Authorless Cinema Factory started its activities in May 2012 at Intermediae.
Since then, many people who have nothing to do with film production have taken part in making their films collectively.
 
Throughout 2013 films in progress will be shown monthly at the Cineteca at Matadero Madrid. A meeting space open to everyone interested in actively taking part by offering their opinion and even getting involved in the production process.
The participating public can do more than just see films here: they can do so in a new social model of filmmaking.
Social Cinema. Horizontal. Participatory. Inclusive. 21st century Cinema. Cinema XXI

Open Terrario / Streaming Scenarios: ON & ON Presentation of Season #2
PlayDramaturgia

Saturday 19 January at 7 p.m.

Three months have passed since the start of Streaming Scenarios, a process of exploring the possibilities for dialogue among live arts and real-time video broadcasts via the Internet. 
Something along those lines was said by Pablo Gisbert, one of our collaborators, when we sat down to reflect on it: “Our times require we take action. And since we are too cowardly to take up arms, we have to do our best in our field: the world of ideas. They need to be specified, filled with content, and shot.” That is what we are doing.  ON&ON serves to recharge and present the second phase of the project. More ideas, more action, more playwriting and hard punches… more Streaming Scenarios.

Open Terrario / Public Listening #2. How to create sound spaces? With Enrique Rivero.
Radio Sures

Friday 18 January at 8 p.m.

Radio Sures is an on-demand web radio with radio documentaries. With no additional photos, supporting videos, or multimedia extras. We tell stories using only sound resources!  We illustrate this aesthetic proposal each month at a public meeting devoted to listening. We offer a selection of documentary sound narratives, in Spanish and other languages, with translations planned. We listen in the semi-darkness, seated or lying down, as if we were in a cinema watching a movie with no pictures. As Orson Welles said, “Radio is better than the cinema because in radio, the screen is bigger.”

At each session, we will have a guest with a point of view (or better said… hearing) on the documentaries we have heard. The guest is not a specialist in sound or radio but rather, another creative field such as painting, photography, literature, theatre, etc. Instead of offering an analysis, the guest will share sensations and impressions as a listener. This intervention will create bridges between sound and other artistic disciplines.

In this second session, our guest is filmmaker and producer Enrique Rivero.

At each meeting, we will discuss the sound documentary from a different perspective, starting with a question. This month it is: “How to create sound spaces?” A film director frames the shot with a camera. Do radio documentary makers also create a shot with microphones? Other questions we will explore include: What is a “sound space”? How is it constructed by the person recording and perceived by the listener? We will discuss distance, movement, and field depth.

Enrique Rivero has worked in various areas related to film production, from photography to art. As a director, he started with two short films, Nidra and Schhht!, making his first feature length film, Parque Vía, in 2008. It garnered various international awards including the Golden Leopard at the Locarno Festival (Switzerland). His second feature length film was Mai Morire (2012); it won awards in Rome (Best Photography) and Huelva (Special Jury Award, and the Radio Exterior de España award, among others.) Currently he is in development with his next project, Pozoamargo, to be shot in Spain in a town in La Mancha.

Open Terrario/ Screening of Evelyn and meeting with Isabel de Ocampo, Beatriz Gimeno and Feminicidio.net.
Feminicidio.net

Thursday 17 January at 7 p.m.

Otro Tiempo works to fight violence against women, with a focus on documenting the murders of women in Latin America. That is the purpose of the news portal it created, Feminicidio.net, with information on gender issues and online education. The group recently offered the course, “Prostitution: contributions to an open debate”, led by Beatriz Gimeno.
The formative process comes to a close with the screening of the film Evelyn (2011), directed by Isabel de Ocampo. Evelyn travels to Spain from her hometown in a Latin American country. She believes she will be working as a waitress but she is deceived and kidnapped, forced to work as a prostitute at a roadside brothel.

Open Terrario / Presentation of the book 2000 Kcal / 8439.5 kJ 2000 Kcal / 8439.5 kJ
Rafael Suárez


Thursday 10 January 7:30 – 10 pm

This work began in 2009 as a reflection on assessing the human body as an economic system. Parallels were drawn between the problem of obesity and the economic system in which we live, both phenomena characterised by improper management of surpluses. The photographic work has turned into a book with collaboration from two specialists, an economist and a biologist. They offer academic perspectives on surplus management in an organism and in a socio-political structure.
This unusual presentation will take place around a buffet table with various components that dialogue with the work to be presented.
