11am to 6pm
Free entrance

Between essays and archives, experimental documentaries and artists’ films, the Cinema Dynamo at the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève will host a selection of films that review various ways of exploring, through cinema, the history of music and of listening. The program blends historical films (conversations of composer Robert Ashley with his peers Terry Riley and Pauline Oliveros in Music with Roots in the Aether, 1976) with contemporary ones (with the presentation of original excerpts of Daniel Weintraub’s ongoing film, Deep Listening: The Story of Pauline Oliveros). In each of his films, the documentary and experiential dimensions meet, turning the act of listening into a way of immersing oneself in the matter and in history, and of blending together reality and imagination, information and sensation.
