The spring 2017 F.I.L.M. (Forum on Image and Language in Motion) series concludes on Sunday, April 16, at 2 p.m., when sound engineer Ernst Karel presents two sound works—listened to in the darkened theatre—and discusses his work as a sound artist. The event will take place in the Bradford Auditorium, KJ, and is free and open to the public.
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.
