The T. Rudzinskaitė Memorial Amateur Lichenologists Society returns to the Octo-Biozone in 2091 for a rejuvenating Summer Beat Camp & Sound Bathhouse on the site of the former Kaapelitehdas (with special expedition to Tarvo island!). This year our Photosynth Social Club offers an exploration of the area’s unique post-industrial-techno-nature-cultural surrounds, inviting local lichen-kin into a program of convivial sonic and somatic experimentation. Participants will snap symbio-selfies to process or synthesise into samples, discovering together how to play these using free/libre open-source software while seeking interesting correspondences, patterns and rhythms.
The camp culminates in a breakbeat science sound bathhouse ‘soak session’, where campers will perform the results on a nice sound system and video projector, hopefully in a geodesic dome.
