hello, world & welcome! Ål Nik here ≧◉◡◉≦

Welcome to my documentation & collaboration space. This Wiki is created to give space for keeping a record of my artistic & research practice and to collaborate with fellow artists on projects. Happy to have you here!

p.s. wonder who I am? Hop on here: User:Alnik


One of the reasons I installed this mediawiki on my server, was to have a space to document my research, work and process, to write about it, to do some reflections on the experiments I'm making, and to share all of that. Here is an index of all the AlWiki's published pages:

_sound jams

◍ just finished ▶ room for sound: sound mapping // teaching an elective at Willem de Kooning academy with Naomi Jansen, 2-8 April 2024
◍ recently finished ▶ sound jams: sounds at the exposure exhibition in Sign, Groningen
◍ recently facilitated a workshop at Zine Camp Rotterdam ▶ sound jams: infomercials from the future

[started as my master's XPUB research project] sound jams: methods of collective sound-based publication-making for practitioners from various backgrounds is my master's programme research. For my research, I am facilitating various sound jams that I have designed, in order to test the methods in reality and understand what are the important factors when creating a sound-making experience for people from different backgrounds. What brings them together in sound creation and sharing? What elements of the structure and the process are vital for them to find a comfortable and welcoming space for experimentation? What can they take from the sound jams for their artistic and research practice?

By a sound jam, I understand any facilitated process of sound-making and publishing that includes more than one person. Its core principle is inclusivity: it is open to people with or without musical training and offers a structure in which everyone is invited to find a suitable role and space for experimentation. The process grants the makers the opportunity to create a sound publication as a group. This paper explores different sound jams as applied methods that provide such processes and a safe space for makers with various practices to open up to a moment of collective sound-making and sharing.
