For its 8th edition – which will take place at INTONAL 2017 – New Emergences extends a warm invitation to musician, sound artist and curator Julia Eckhardt from Brussels (Q-O2).

For the discussion Julia will be joined on the panel by festival artist Susanne Kirchmayr: Electric indigo, from Vienna (female:pressure); by performance artist Helena Engberg from Malmö (potato potato); by Remco Schuurbiers, of CTM Berlin, and Rewire DH; and by the New Emergences team, represented by the composer/performers Fani Konstantinidou, Semay Wu and Anne Wellmer.

A recording by a woman from Binga represents the continent on-air

radio continental drift


It was a recording by Lucia Munenge from Sikalenge Ward in Binga, which got to represent (sounds from) the African continent on a WDR3 “open sounds” programm recently: “The Sound of the World” on the field recordings platform radio aporee:::maps. You can find Lucia’s recording on aporee maps here

Sikalenge2 2017-04-03 at aporee

Lucia’s recording was the only recording from the African continent played in the radio show, all other 33 listening samples from the aporee sound maps originated on the other continents. The radio show was dedicated to the aporee radio project by German artist Udo Noll, to its sound maps and audio recordings, which are contributed by listeners from around the world (at the time of this post, 37493 recordings of 32649 places by 1421 contributors with a total audio length of more than 90 days)

Women Team-Working

radio continental drift

Some of our first steps on the ground in Binga were to join Zubo in visiting the Women Forums in the six Wards that Zubo is working.


The women of Zubo’s Forums are doing fantastic work in their local communities. They are assisting women to come and work together as teams, often as saving and lending groups realizing income-generating projects, they pass on training of workshops for example on business skills, they debate issues affecting women and seek for solutions or for further help and, they share community work among the vulnerable members of their communities. A focus of the women’s local work consists in supporting and mentoring girl children. 


The Women Forums and their communities are often far off the “beaten track” … as you can see when following our steps on the sound maps of aporee radio.

Songs build togetherness, move team-work, release stress, pass on…

Reflections on Risk: by Ashley Fure


Pigeonholes, Precarity, and the Zero-Sum Game of Time

On Speaking Out

On August 3rd, 2016, during the 70th Darmstadt Internationale Ferienkurse für Neue Musik, under the rubric of Michael Rebhahn’s Historage commissions, I organized a panel discussion on gender relations in the new music scene. During the talk, I presented data pulled from the Darmstadt archive charting female/male ratios of compositions performed, prizes won, participants attended, and faculty tutors for each year of the festival. This data served as a launching point for a round table discussion involving Georgina Born, Arnbjörg Danielsen, Neele Hülcker, Susanne Kirchmayr, Anne-Hilde Neset, Sam Salem, Thomas Schäfer, and Jennifer Walshe.

The forceful insight voiced by these panelists sent ripples of energy through the Darmstadt community that were incredible to witness. GRID (Gender Research in Darmstadt) events sprang up all over the place. Think tanks were organized, articles written, actions staged, websites created, interviews conducted…
