görli dreamin’ vol. 1

Wherever we are, what we hear is mostly noise. When we ignore it, it disturbs us. When we listen to it, we find it fascinating.
John Cage

Görli Dreamin’ is a unique collaboration of an international group of movement and sound artists, poets and improvisers, united by interest in how urban environment affects our artistic practices, initiated and directed by Jagna Anderson.

Inspired by John Cage’s appreciation of the “Symphony of the City” and by the ideas of acoustic ecology (R. Murray Schafer), the project is extending this approach to other senses: besides hearing/listening also to vision, touch, smell, proprioception.

Görlitzer Bahnhof, an exemplary urban hot spot, with all its sounds, textures, movements, spatial and temporal structures is the 3-dimensional, multisensorial reference for the score of the performance.
