DSCN0022The second presentation of the series SEARCHING FOR ZOMIA focuses on LOVE SONGS, an essential part of private culture of courting in societies which enjoyed traditionally relative sexual freedom.

The art of singing, the singing patterns and the improvised content of the songs were fully developed by so many traditions of ethnic minorities inhabiting the Zomian highlands.

Introducing the BAOZOO (a cappella love song of 2 women and a man) of the MIEN (YAO or ZAO), the HUNGA (a cappella love song) of HMONG women in northern VIETNAM, the love songs with stringed instruments of GUM (DONG) man and woman in Guizhou CHINA, the a cappella polyphonies of LALUO (YI) 5 women in Yunnan CHINA, the responsive singing with stringed instruments of TAMPOON men and women in Ratanakiri CAMBODIA, or the responsive singing between a TA OI man with mouthorgan and a woman in Saravan LAOS and more.

DSC01876A presentation in sound and image recorded by Kink Gong aka Laurent Jeanneau

From 2000 till 2014 Laurent Jeanneau was based in South-East Asia recording the music, songs and rituals of traditional cultures rooted in the remote Hinterlands.

Those cultures who escaped the agricultural and social systems of the densely populated central valleys and plains of China, Laos and Thailand have kept their independence for centuries, protecting their beliefs and traditions against the dominant ethnic groups till very recently. In the past 20 years the growing interest in the ressources and the exploitation of those Hinterlands has lead to an ever increasing interference into the lives of those minorities. Some of the musical and cultural traditons presented here are no longer in existence.

Laurent Jeanneau will present in a series of 5 events the recordings he made in those historical areas of refuge which James Scott calls Zomia.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RNkkEU7EoOk //

In “Searching for Zomia #1: Tibeto-Burmese Shamanism” he will talk about the specific dimensions  of their spiritual beliefs widely called animism and by purpose uses the misleading term for what we easily in the western world call a Shaman, by introducing  the Bima of the Hani , the Domsa of the Jingpaw, the Bimo of the Nisu in Yunnan-China or the Suni of the Nuosu in Sichuan-China, the priest of the Lisu in northern Thailand or the psychic healer of the Akha in northern Laos. They might call them priest, healer or trickster, they all have or had a function in their traditional environment, outside of the monotheist religions and inside Animism, superstition and super powers!

IMG_4223 FEBRUARY 4 2016 HAU 1 BERLIN

the musician and DIY music ethnographer Laurent Jeanneau presents his project Kink Gong. Since 1999, over many trips to Southeast Asia, Jeanneau has documented the local music traditions of ethnic minorities whose cultures are threatened by modernisation. Jeanneau collects and compiles these unedited recordings into an ever-growing sound and video archive. Excerpts of this archival work are published on the label Sublime Frequencies and his own label. In addition, Jeanneau uses these recordings, which focus mostly on vocal and percussion music, as the starting point for his own emotionally-charged electronic experiments and sound compositions then broadened by other field recordings. In these compositions, the traditions and avant-gardes of a diverse range of places merge into new, contemporary statements.

IMG_4222CTM Festival returns to HAU Hebbel am Ufer from 30 January to 7 February. The 17th edition’s music programme is elaborated through intensive collaboration with guest co-curator Rabih Beaini , while the exhibition and discourse programme is created in close collaboration with Swiss-based Norient . Special projects and commissions, as well as artists and sound cultures emanating from less familiar countries and localities and often operating on the fringes of the electronic circuit are featured in greater numbers than ever before. Under the shadow of a global conflict centered on increasingly radical disputes over drawing or dissolving borders, the festival’s “New Geographies” theme aims to explore music and sound practices that respond to these developments, and to provide the conceptual tools needed to approach the complexities of a polycentric, polychromatic, and increasingly hybrid (music) world with greater openness.

The full festival programme is available via: www.ctm-festival.de .

dahlem nightDer Humboldt-(Mahl)strom: Performance mit Laurent Jeanneau, Werner Durand & Albrecht Wiedmann”.

Die Musiker Laurent Jeanneau (KINK GONG) und Werner Durand (Armchair Traveller, Tonaliens, Diasporagas) treffen sich, unterstützt von Albrecht Wiedmann aus der der Abteilung Medien, im Hörraum des Humboldt Lab Dahlem im Ethnologischen Museum. Mittels einer 21-kanaligen Soundinstallation verweben sie live ihre Lieblingsstücke und -klänge zu einem großen Mahlstrom, der sowohl didaktische als auch künstlerische Aspekte einbezieht. Die Performance ist zugleich ein musikalischer Abschiedsgruß an das zu Ende gehende Humboldt Lab, in dessen Rahmen der Hörraum konzipiert und umgesetzt wurde.

24 may 2015 BELGIUM KRAAK FESTIVAL

The idea of the event is about how artists and musicians assimilate and work around ‘exotic’, non-western elements and how they relate to the issue which goes with it — i.e. our view on the non-western world could be seen as intellectual suspicion, in the sense that if some uses the ‘exotic’, where can you draw the line with post-colonialism; can western musicians for instance sample fieldrecordings of polynesian tribes, societies in which music has a completely different function then here. I think there are a lot of good musicians who has their own way of working with these idea’s (musically and conceptual wise).
