Installation and performance with laser-engraved mirrors, led-lamps, voice, megaphones, potentiometer, ldr, wires. 2023Anatomical drawings related to the larynx have been graphically altered and engraved on old mirrors. Disassembled megaphones with manipulated circuit boards are activated, emitting vibrato-esque siren sounds, intertwined with traditional herding calls and improvised voice actions. A non-singular interplay of emotion and reason, nature and technology.

'Paranoid Meditation,' is a guided listening session from the Office for Joint Administrative Intelligence (Chris Dreier and Gary Farrelly). This piece promulgates political signals, homoerotic imaginaries, and cryptic dog whistles embedded in the built environment. The intervention combines story telling with live modular and synthetic sound accompaniment created specially for the occasion. The thematic resonance of 'Paranoid Meditation' with the futuristic, monolithic architecture of the 4th Space Meditation Centre opens up the possibility of exploring architectonic and existential themes simultaneously.

The performance: spoken word, modular noises, field recordings, and sonic artefacts from our Political and Infrastructural Sound Archive.

Harmonies of the Fourth Space: A Sound Journey into Non-SingularityA sonic research into the heart of non-singularity at the 4th Space Meditation Centre. Harmonies of the Fourth Space is an immersive performance that delves into the inherent nature of the universe as a non-singular entity—a tapestry woven with threads of oneness and not-oneness.
Through the transformative power of sound healing, we are invited to embark on an inner journey of exploration and discovery. Letting the resonant tones of Tibetan bowls, gongs, voice, and an array of other instruments to act as a guide through the depths of consciousness, connecting with the subconscious mind and navigating the inner landscape of being-not-being.
Karolien Polenus is a sound alchemist from Brussels with her own sound healing practice: energy8medicine.com

Tuning to tuning is a hypnotic lecture performance pursuing the essence of certain phenomena of electromagnetic communication between living organisms. Combining the practice of hypnotherapy with the synergy of voice, electronics, resonant instruments and various forms of transmission, we will undergo a collective tuning to the fourth dimension.
