Audiowalk As Time Flows By

Following the successful performance of Klangwandels Flux in Kavala and at Intersonanzen 2023, Sina Schmidt and Phillip Feneberg went one step further with their audio walk for the Cosmpolis Festival in Kavala, leaving not only the creation of the various voices to the artificial swarm intelligence, but also the research for the script. With the help of the Guidemate app, you can be led along the Mediterranean and pass historical buildings into a parallel dimension in which the Anthropocene seems to have been overcome.

Eutopia Artist Residency Kavala, Greece

As part of the artist residency at Eutopia Studio Kavala, Sina Schmidt, Phillip Feneberg (composition) and Maik Meier (photos & technics) developed a sound promenade on the topic of time and water. On Saturday, 15 April, the German artist team gave a first insight into the development process of their new sound project: a mixture of field recordings, musical sound collages and text fragments from different eras could be heard, which built a new layer over the everyday scenes at the Limani of Kavala harbour.

Concert Whispering - behind the scenes of Nikolaisaal Potsdam

What happens behind the scenes during an orchestra concert? Who works backstage to help create a successful event? In Concert Whispering (Konzertgeflüster), the audience takes a look backstage and witnesses the preparations and processes in the classical concert business. With the Nikolaisaal Potsdam's earphone audioguide, it is possible to hear not only live interviews but also the voices of staff members who normally carry out work invisible to the guests, but without whom it would be impossible to ensure a smooth process on stage.
Since the 2022/23 season in the programme of the Nikolaisaal Potsdam.

Time for Dreams - scenic heartbreaker about kitsch

Having already melted audiences' hearts with "Island of Hope" and "The Power of Love" by virtue of its musical-theatrical remakes of "Dr. Norden's" penny books, the Potsdam theater collective FRITZAHOI presents the third part of its performative series of experimental works on the subject of kitsch at museum FLUXUS+ on February 10 and 11, 2023.

Symposium Technologies for Cultural Education

The Netzwerk Junge Ohren e. V. organized in cooperation with the PwC Foundation on 7.11.2022 a symposium on the topic of technologies in cultural education in the Spreehalle Berlin. I had the pleasure to speak at the panel discussion moderated by Vivian Percovic with the wonderful Julius Brandt & Antonia Rehfuess from Eucrea e. V. Hamburg and Sebastian Riegelbauer from Sirius-Startup Berlin about the opportunities that digital tools offer for inclusion, participation and educational and cultural offerings in general.

Virtual Concert Hall Symphonic Space

As part of the project management for digitality at the Kammerakademie Potsdam, I realized together with the architect and 3D graphic designer Adam Chown from Zaha Hadid Architects this Mozilla.hubs space, which aesthetically unites the various concert venues in which the orchestra regularly plays. In the future, artistic experiments, exhibitions and 360-degree live streams will take place here, in which the audience is actively involved and can interact with 
each other.

The Power of Love - 
Lecture Performance on the Subject of Kitsch

In the lecture performance "The Power of Love", the theater collective FRITZAHOI! takes on the genre of the doctor's novel on October 7/8/9, 2022 at the Rechenzentrum Potsdam and also opens the private clinic to the audience on the weekend, because "everywhere, love is the best medicine after all"!  In this new production, the Potsdam theater collective FRITZAHOI! examines the nostalgic longing for conventional role and family images that promise stability and security, especially in troubled times, but in fact were probably never as romantic as their portrayal.

Insel der Hoffnung - scenic reading at PACE-Festival

On 5.6.2022 we took 10 years of Uniater e. V. as an occasion to deal with one of the hardest genres ever: The doctor's novel. In six blocks, we worked our way through a great work of pulp novel literature, transforming the foyer of the Wachhaus Arena into a consulting room.

Artist residency at Casa Tagumerche

At the end of March 2022, Sina was invited to be a resident at Casa Tagumerche in Alojera, La Gomera, Spain for two weeks as part of an artist residency program by Res Artis. For 14 days here, she researched ancient legends about the magical island of San Borondón for a staged reading, recorded sounds and made photos, and experimented with augmented reality applications.
