Hamilton College – Bradford Auditorium in the Kirner-Johnson Building
Sound wizard Ernst Karel has been the sonic brains and ears behind the recent spate of remarkable nonfiction films produced by Harvard’s Sensory Ethnography Lab including Leviathan, Manakamana, The Iron Ministry, and Foreign Parts.
Karel makes electroacoustic music and experimental nonfiction sound works for multichannel installation and performance. His sound installations, in collaboration with Helen Mirra, have been exhibited at Culturgest in Lisbon, KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, Audiorama in Stockholm, MIT’s List Visual Arts Center and the 2012 Sao Paulo Bienal.
Karel will present two sound works—listened to in the darkened theatre—and discuss his work as a sound artist.
