Fertility (2023) Fertility
Fertility is an artistic master research (Master Crossover Creativity @HKU) into the effect of art during a disease process, and/or treatment. But Fertility is also the name of a character, an avatar, that creates out of destruction. Through Research Catalogue I want to provide an open insight into this artistic process including my sources of inspiration, questions and finds.

Soundscape Project TUB (2023) Ilias Mavromatis (Ili Os), Jonas Henning, Mariana Carvalho, Daniel Dilger
The Soundscape TUB is a self organized “Projektwerkstatt” that explores the concepts of acoustic ecology, the relationship between people and their environment mediated by sound. With students from different faculties of TUB, UdK and other universities, the project stands in the intersection of science, arts and humanities, dealing with topics such as social ecology, technology, data collection, group dynamics and creative practice. Soundscape TUB works with the potential of sound and listening as a socio-political tool and science communication.

Songs We Sing (2023) Hans Knut Sveen, Alwynne Pritchard
This project began in 2018, with the simple desire to play songs that we love. These could be pieces with strong associations, ones we had enjoyed singing and playing before, or songs we had never sung and that were, perhaps, even new to us. When the songs were written or what genre they might come from was not important. Original instrumentation (piano, harpsichord etc) and received ideas about vocal style were also not a priority. Finding a way of creating renditions with the tools at hand (Alwynne's voice and Hans Knut's harmonium) is what originally defined the project.

The Garage Tapes (2023) Tor Einar Bekken
Exploring the sound of the parking garage in the building where I live, using cheap Casio electric keyboards, low end melodicas and a recorder. All instruments, electronic or not, have been played live in the garage as if they were purely acoustic instruments, making this an artistic exposition exclusively, intended to make people consider and reflect upon what can be done with humble instruments in the right sonic environment. Videos shot with an iPhone 5. No overdubs, mix, mastering or other tampering with the actual sound.

RAPP Lab Outcomes (2023) Evelyn Buyken, Carla Conti, Sybille Fraquelli, Stella Louise Goeke, Ivar Grydeland, Johannes Kretz, Theodore Parker
RAPP Lab was a three-year EU-funded research project supported by the ERASMUS+ programme "Strategic Partnerships". RAPP stands for "Reflection based Artistic Professional Practice". The project took forward through a series of multi-national encounters described as Labs. RAPP Lab explored how the reflective methodologies of Artistic Research empower musicians to creatively respond to the economic-cultural environment with which they are confronted. The project brought together the Artistic Research expertise of seven partner institutions in six different European states: Association Européenne des Conservatoires – AEC Bruxelles, Belgium Conservatorio di Musica Santa Cecilia Rome, Italy Eesti Muusika- ja Teatriakadeemia Tallinn, Estonia Hochschule für Musik und Tanz Köln, Cologne, Germany (as Coordinator) mdw – Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst Wien, Vienna, Austria Norges musikhøgskole, NMH Oslo, Norway Orpheus Instituut Ghent, Belgium
