Zusammen Zuhören is a new, online music listening and discussion group for music professionals and professionals who work with music, appearing as part of ACUD’s COLLECTIVE PRACTICES program. Rooted in a deep listening practice, Zusammen Zuhören is designed as a safe, attentive online meeting space to discover, decode, and discuss the distinct elements we perceive in music that stimulate us.
By critically discussing what makes us distinguish certain musical expressions, and exposing those unique responses to the frequencies of sound, we strengthen and encourage our ability to create and work with musical material across collaborative disciplines.
Zusammen Zuhören is a platform for exchanging ideas and skills around music, sound, composition, recording, and performance. It fosters artistic connections across various disciplines and practices in the shared experience of listening and discussion.
Lyra Pramuk fuses classical vocalism, pop sensibilities, performance practices and contemporary club culture in what can best be described as futurist folk music. Citing musical collaborators such as Holly Herndon and Colin Self, collaborations with the visual artist Donna Huanca, freelance writing projects, and an ongoing international performance schedule, there are a variety of creative nodes that come to feed back into Lyra’s practice.
Where the voice is deployed most imaginatively and seductively for Pramuk is just where the orbit of electronic music is conceived as a modular spectrum. Seizing on recorded work as well as performance to be a process of sampling and synthesis, genres are cross-pollinated and extended, returning all the while back to her formative impulse that storytelling is song, and song is a means of short-circuiting the structures we are sold as a real difference in this world.
Lyra is based in Berlin, Germany.
