hearing the wild heart

brut nordwest
Performance / concert World Premiere in English
{Messy order of nature} {Experimental instruments} {Clumsy symphony}

In the sound performance hearing the wild heart, Alex Franz Zehetbauer joins forces with the performer Gergő D. Farkas and the musician and sound artist Christian Schröder. Together they navigate an eco-system of experimental instruments and create a sonic universe that dissolves dualistic notions like “natural or unnatural”, “alive or not alive”, “human or not human”. This work is guided by the concept of ‘worlding’.

‘Consider this image: you are in the garden, your knees covered in mud, hands deep in the earth for an early spring planting. Instead of seeing the earth as a quality apart from the knee attached to a pre-existing human form, see the knee-hand-earth as a worlding, a force of form, an operative ecology.’ — Erin Manning

INFO: The show on May 6th will be followed by an artist talk.
  
hearing the wild heart is a sounding ecology. A playfully repurposed wasteland. A sonic world in a constant state of becoming, unfinished and always on the move. A place with the messy order of nature. A wetland, a swamp, or just a pile of trash. A place to see connections. An unpredictable mixture of joyous brutality and gentle chaos. An attempt to make music. We hear many living things co-existing, thunder and lighting, the screaming of an elk, melodic song, the splashing of water. 

Alex Franz Zehetbauer (born 1990 in Brooklyn) is a sonic choreographer, performance artist, and singer based in Vienna. He studied vocal performance, dance, acting and composition at the Experimental Theater Wing at NYU Tisch School of the Arts and the International Theatre Workshop in Amsterdam. Alex has been awarded the BKA Startstipendium für Musik und Darstellende Kunst (2018), the TURBO Residency – ImPulsTanz (2018), the TQW Training Scholarship (2019), and the danceWEB Scholarship (2019). His works wet dreaming at 52Hz (2019) and AyH (2021) were co-produced by brut Wien.
