Antoine Chessex ⎪ «Get Going!» 2021

2021 «Get Going!» Portrait Series

The composer Antoine Chessex is developing a new direction in his musical practice, at the point where sound art and acoustic ecology meet – one that requires a transversal approach. As part of this exploration, he is drawing on practices and concepts from sound art and sound studies, audiographing non-human soundscapes and composing these into pieces of sonic fiction using instrumental processing. He is also exploring how sound, as a trigger auditory imagination, can enable an ecology of listening and is thus investigating coexisting human and non-human voices in their complex and fluid entanglement.

«Get Going!» has existed as a FONDATION SUISA funding offer since 2018. With this new form of a grant, creative and artistic processes that do not fall within established categories are given a financial jump-start.
