The Sonic Art of Avant-garde Cut-Ups Workshop

18:00 - 20:00

Spektrum Berlin
Bürknerstr 12, 12047 Berlin
This worshop is a introduction to the political and avant-garde art of audio tape cut-ups. Our goal is to offer the history and context behind audio tape practice. Participants will get a theoretica background, audio examples, and creative tips on why and how audio tape cut-ups became a fundamental part of popular culture up to date. Poets,writers, sound artists & muscians have being influenced by this excellent radical approach. The question we answered: how did all began? Who started the audio tape practice? What was the social and political approach behind it? We will find this out!


In this workshop we will explore the historical and aesthetic art of the avant-garde cut-ups on tape audio in the form of recorded sounds and human speech.

We will first introduce the cut-up technique by the Dadaist poet Tristan Tzara in 1920. Exercise 1 I Cuting-up words

After we will explore (listen) to some examples of avant-garde cut-ups where words, audio tape & turntables
operate together in unexpected ways. (P. Schaeffer, D. Derbyshire, W.Burroughs & Throbbing Gristle).

William Burroughs – The father of the audio tape cut-ups (Naked Lunch) as a weapon to attack the conventional logic, narrative and perception bluring the boundaries between reality and delusion. Attack on the bourgeoisie ways of narrative based on lineal story telling.

We will also learn how an Avant-garde experiment became a popular creative expression & entertainment use by many musicians and sound artists since the 20es up to date.
¡ We will end putting together a score that participants can produce using the audio tape cut-up technique.

From 18-20 p.m.
