Exposition

Aural Transposition, Psychogeography and the Ephemeral World (2020)

Katt Hernandez

About this exposition

en
Aural transposition sits at a crossroads between being a tool for practice and creating work, and being a tool that illuminates aspects of another entity. In day-to-day music practice, transposition can be an age-old tool for learning material, or a multi-layered exploration of an object or place. Transposition can also be a means of recreating places, real or imagined, through the transposition of ghost traces back into sound. And the transposition of spaces onto other spaces is possible through multichannel sound arrays. The territory for re-imagining both sound and place lies in the impossible space between the sounding entity at hand and the instrument that transposes it. Just as in the dérive of psychogeography, the spaces between well-trod paths leads to a world beyond the banal. This exposition first situates these practices in psychogeography, and amongst other artists whose work utilizes various transposition, soundwalking or psychogeographical practices. It then discusses those aspects of my own artistic practice and work—across a spectrum of electroacoustic music, improvised violin work and collaborative composition for an ensemble of mechanical string instruments— that are centered around aural transposition as an act of psychogeography.

Gehörsmässig transponering är både ett verktyg för praktik och skapande, och ett verktyg som belyser aspekter av en annan entitet. Inom vardaglig musikpraktik kan transponering erbjuda ett uråldrigt verktyg för lärande, men den kan också erbjuda ett mångskiktat utforskande av ett objekt eller en plats. Transponering kan även fungera som ett medel för att återskapa platser, verkliga eller föreställda, exempelvis genom transponering av spöklika spår åter till ljud. Transpositionen av en plats på en annan görs möjlig genom flerkanaliga ljudsystem. Själva akten: att på nytt föreställa sig både ljud och rum sker på en sorts omöjlig plats mellan den ljudande entitet som finns till hands, och det instrument som transponerar ljudet. Precis som i dérive från psykogeografi leder platserna mellan ingångna leder till en värld bortom den banala. Denna exposition situerar först denna praktik både i psykogeografi och hos andra konstnärer som arbetar med olika former av transponering, soundwalking eller psykogeografisk praktik. Därefter diskuteras aspekter av min egen konstnärliga praktik och mitt arbete – i ett spektrum av elektroakustisk musik, violin-improvisation och kollaborativ komposition för en ensemble av mekaniska stränginstrument – vilka är grundade i transponering på gehör som psykogeografisk akt.
