Mitchell Keaney: Nine Fixations of a Listener
Nine Fixations of a Listeners is a performance/lecture focused on understanding oneself within the context of sound art praxis. Mitchell will present some of his research on interconnected personality types, ego fixations, mysticism, and making work that is authentic to oneself and their desires. The presentation will draw upon the traditional teachings of the Enneagram, the Jungian “Shadow Self”, and a notion that “How you do one thing is how you do everything”. Participants /attendees are encouraged to bring a notebook and a writing utensil.

JCJP-030 is a Berlin based trio consisting of video artist Carolina Ovando (CL), filmmaker James Pain (AU) and musician Juan Pablo de Lucca (AR). The group combines field recordings, modular synths, experimental cinematography, and live video mapping to create an interdisciplinary and immersive mode of storytelling. Initially conceived as a livestream during the lockdown months of 2020, the project has since been adapted to also suit a live performance experience.
Their audiovisual performance “Berlin / Brandenburg” is personal reflection upon social and environmental issues using recorded material from Berlin and Brandenburg ́s public spaces. The piece is centered around the themes of perception and reality, natural and urban environments, and the relation between humans and technology.
