My head sounds like that

Working at the intersection of sound installation and music, Rubén D'Hers examines stationary sounds from the domestic environment, both trying to unveil their potential as found musical material and investigating how they can appeal to our involuntary auditory imagery.

Auditory phenomena and conditions such as tinnitus, earworms, musical hallucinations have served as the impulse to set up an installation that provides an acoustic space based not only on the sound being produced mechanically by objects, but also by paintings that probe the aural hallucination from its muteness.

Rubén D'Hers has been a recipient among others by the Senat Berlin Cultural exchange stipend Berlin - Tokyo, Stiftung Kunstfonds and the Cisneros Fontanals Foundation.

His work has been exhibited and performed among others at venues like Tokyo Arts & Space (JP), Centro Cultural Metropolitano Quito (EC), Artica Svalbard (NO), Interstice Festival (FR) Klangraum Krems (AT), Netwerk Center for Contemporary Arts (BE), Heart of Noise Festival (AT), The Empty Gallery (HK), Donau Festival (AT), Le Bon Accueill (FR), Autres Mesures Festival (FR), TEA Tenerife Espacio de las Artes (ES), Kunsthaus Bregenz (AT), Kontejner (HR), ZKM Karlsruhe (DE), & Neues Museum Weimar.

Cluster is a new-music series devoted to the investigation of sound and notation, which provides musicians and composers with an exchange area in Berlin, at the crossroad of compositional and performance practices.

Labor Neunzehn is an artist-run project engaged in a cross-disciplinary discourse on time-based-art that involves expanded cinema, modern music, publishing, and the critical reflection in media art, with a specific focus on the migration of these languages between the online and offline domains. As an independent curatorial platform and a non-profit initiative for the production of research projects, exhibitions, performances, workshops, we are committed to the presentation of collaborative outcomes and hybrid formats.
